Kaylee Goncalves, who was murdered at the University of Idaho, had a relationship with Jack DuCoeur.
Prior to the killings, Goncalves and victim Madison Mogen, both University of Idaho students, called DuCoeur a total of ten times.
DuCoeur, according to Goncalves’ family, has nothing to do with it; they have vehemently defended him.
On November 13, 2022, Goncalves, Mogen, their roommate Xana Kernodle, and Kernodle’s boyfriend Ethan Chapin were all fatally stabbed inside an off-campus residence. The murder has not yet been solved.
On November 20, 2022, when asked if Jack DuCoeur had been exonerated in the killings, the police chief responded, “We believe there is no connection there.”
A week after the murders of four University of Idaho students, the Moscow Police Department is holding a second press conference to update the public on the situation.
