Said the mother of the man killed in the attack 15 months ago Independent that finding out who killed her son – and catching the killer of murdered students in Idaho – would be “the best Christmas present ever.”

The investigation into the murders of Kaylee Goncalves, Madison Mogen, Xana Kernodle and Ethan Chapin escalates in frustration as no arrests have been made and no suspects have been identified 11 days after the brutal knife deaths.

From campus to club to crime scene: what happened in the last hours of murder victims in Idaho

It could have been anyone, in any American college town, on any Saturday night. So typical was the behavior of murdered students in Moscow, Idaho, hours before being brutally stabbed to death.

The University of Idaho campus was busy that day, a sea of ​​gold and silver, as the Vandals prepared for their home game against the UC Davis Aggies at the 16,000 seat Kibbie Dome. It was 28 degrees to begin with – the weather was described as a daunting “ice fog” – but they turned out to be happy, loyal fans; the Vandals’ 44-26 defeat was disappointing, but did not deter the students from preparing to hit the city.

Among them were five girls who lived in a three-bedroom rental house on King Road, just over a mile from the stadium and only two blocks from the edge of campus. Kaylee Goncalves and Maddie Mogen, childhood best friends at 21, went to downtown bars together. Xana Kernodle, 20, planned to spend time with her boyfriend, 20-year-old Ethan Chapin. Two of the girls’ other roommates also spent the night away from home.
