THE two survivors of the Idaho college killings have broken their silence after police admitted they still have no suspects three weeks after the gruesome killings.
Madison Mogen, 21, Kaylee Goncalves, 21, and Xana Kernodle, 20, along with Xana’s boyfriend Ethan Chapin, 20, were murdered Nov. 13 at their home in Moscow, Idaho.
As previously reported by The US Sun, the group was based in a house off campus in the city of Moscow.
Since the murders, police have had a difficult time locating the crime scene and finding clues and evidence to lead them to identify possible suspects.
That remains the same, given a recent statement by Moscow police on Saturday December 3, despite receiving “thousands of tips”, according to the Daily Mail.
Not only that, the two notable survivors of the murders have finally spoken out.
19-year-old Dylan Mortensen and Bethany Funke were sleeping on the first floor of the house when the attacks in the Moscow apartment took place.
They appeared to have been “spared” from the massacre, and their written statements were read aloud by a pastor at Real Life Ministries church in Post Falls, Idaho.
“I wish every day that I could hug them all one last time and say how much I love them,” Funke wrote in her statement.
“You always told me that everything happens for a reason, but I have a really hard time understanding why.”
Funke went on to describe every part she admired about her friends’ personalities, and both she and Mortensen described their fondness for the love between Chapin and Kernodle.
“They both had this fun, passionate, crazy but good energy,” Mortensen explained.
“They were both the kind of people who cared about everyone and would help anyone.”
Funke’s statements, like Mortensen and some others, concluded that the four friends and students would “never forget”.
Much of the public, including victims’ families, remains angry at the progress Moscow police have made in their investigations, and the December 3 update is unlikely to make the situation any easier.
Steven Goncalves, the father of 21-year-old Kaylee, has also claimed his daughter’s causes of death were inconsistent with those of the other three victims.
Goncalves has revealed a lot of information about the case in interviews, and he told Fox News on December 3 that the details he was given about Kaylee’s death are inconclusive.
“I’ll get straight to the point — her causes of death are not consistent,” Goncalves told interviewer Lawrence Jones.
“Your damage points don’t match,” he continued.
“I’ll just say it. It wasn’t leaked to me. I deserve it. I paid for this funeral. … I sent my daughter to college. She came back in a box and I can talk about it. “
Goncalves also claimed that his daughter and 21-year-old Madison Mogen slept in the same bed on the second floor on the night of the attack.
Kaylee’s mother, Kristi Goncalves, has also told Fox News that she is upset at the way the case has gone so far.
“We just don’t have any information as a family. And it’s tough day after day after day,” she said.
“I mean, every day you just wake up and you’re like, ‘Today is the day we’re going to hear something,’ and you see this, ‘Oh, there’s a pause on this case,’ and it just becomes something stupid be .”
The Moscow Police Department’s official report, released on December 3, has so far received nearly 3,000 phone calls and another 3,000 emails with tips and information about the case.
They also have about 4,000 photos from the crime scene.
Still, no information was conclusive enough to identify a suspect.
The US Sun has reached out to the Moscow Police Department for comments and updates.
