MOSCOW, IDAHO: Slain Idaho student Kaylee Goncalves' parents shared new autopsy details in their latest interview and claimed that Kaylee Goncalves and Madison Mogen's causes of death don't match. During the interview, Fox News' Lawrence Jones asked Kaylee’s parents if they believe the attack was ‘targeted’ and what information they have received from law enforcement. Kaylee's mother Kristi Goncalves responded, “They have told us it was targeted but they told us they can’t tell who. We asked specifically, and they said we will try to get that information to you and they got back to us a day or so later they said ‘we are sorry we can’t give you that information.’ But then a day later we saw in the news that it was not targeted.”
Lawrence then asked, “I will cut to the chase. Their means of death don’t match. Maddie's and Kaylee’s death - it does not match based on the autopsy report. What it would indicate [is] that one of them -” Steve Goncalves, Kaylee's father, confirmed in response, “They don’t match. Their point of damage doesn’t match.” However, the parents did not go into much detail about what they came to know from the autopsy report. Nevertheless, social media users discussed at length what could be the difference Steve and Kristi were hinting at. One such user wrote on Reddit, “I believe Kaylee was strangled. I also believe the last person to be killed was the target.”

“I wouldn't be surprised If someone got strangled,” another added. “While the pattern of injury could mean that one person was targeted it could also very easily just be that the person with different methodology was the first victim and the mental state of the killer/s then changed. Or it could mean that this person was able to fight back with greater ferocity. Or it could mean that the killer/s injured themselves and weren't able to inflict the same again on the next victim,” someone else remarked.
Meanwhile, the investigation into the tragic killing is entering its fourth week and cops are still fumbling without a breakthrough or any arrests. Idaho State Police's Communications Director Aaron Snell reportedly said that his team was reviewing footage that may contain clues. Authorities are also appealing to anyone with information to come forward. Anyone with information about the crime or a tip or a suspicious person in the area is asked to call 208-883-7180 or email [email protected]
