MOSCOW, IDAHO: On November 13, four University of Idaho students were discovered dead in an off-campus residence. Ethan Chapin, 20, Xana Kernodle, 21, Madison Mogen, 20, and Kaylee Goncalves, 21, perished in a homicide at an off-campus residence on King Road, according to Moscow police. Goncalves and Mogen have been close friends since they were in sixth grade, and both of their families have welcomed them into their homes. According to NBC News, Mogen went on cruises with the Goncalves family and vice versa. We are all sisters, and Kaylee and Maddie were especially, according to Goncalves’ sister Alivea Goncalves.
The close friend of the adolescent girls, who wished to remain unnamed in order to keep the focus on Goncalves and Mogen rather than herself, told Yahoo! The two best friends frequently hung out together, especially at Goncalves’ house, according to the news that “Mogen loved having a sister with not only Kaylee but her entire family and it allowed her to see all the beauty in sisterhood.” They were well known for their charm, sense of humor, ironic adoration of old Taylor Swift songs and country music in general, as well as their appreciation of the outdoors and sunsets.
