Former University of Washington graduate student Bryan Kohberger, 28, has been charged with murder. He remains incarcerated in Idaho.

“We just got Kaylee’s car back and I found this in her inside door pocket,” the Goncalves family said in a post on their Facebook page.

“Taken November 6,” read the post, which came just a week before the killings.

Below that, they uploaded a series of pictures Kaylee took in a photo booth with Xana Kernodle, 20, and Madison Mogen, 21.

The girls can be seen smiling at the camera and blowing kisses to each other while Kaylee happily sticks out her tongue.

“Best friends forever!” the border above the photos says.

“Happy Friday everyone!” This was announced by the family in the post.

“Lots of love to you all!!!”

They got a lot of love back from the commenters too.

“So special,” said one.

“Love in its purest form,” said another Facebook user.

“They raised winners and Kaylee is one of them. She cheers for you all from above.”

The photos were found as new evidence came to light in the murder case.

Investigators found that one of the victims’ ID cards was found in one of Kohberger’s apartments.

It’s not clear if it was found in Washington or at his parents’ home in Pennsylvania, where he fled when investigators were looking for a suspect.

He was arrested there on December 30.

Kohberger is currently being held in solitary confinement.

His first hearing will take place on June 26th. If convicted, Kohberger could face the death penalty.
