Newly released security footage purports to show killed University of Idaho students Kaylee Goncalves and Maddie Mogen walking with a guy in downtown Moscow hours before the quadruple stabbing at a rental property steps away from school on Nov. 13.

The women appear to be dressed in the same clothes as Goncalves and Mogen, who were seen on film outside a neighboring food truck the same evening. The man traveling with them is likewise dressed in clothing similar to those of a man seen at the food truck who, according to police, is not a suspect.

“Maddie, what did you say to Adam?” a woman asks as the group walks under an outdoor surveillance camera.

“Like, I told Adam everything,” the second woman replies.

The first woman’s voice appears to be the same as Goncalves’ on TikTok.

According to Kaylee’s father, Steve Goncalves, the “Adam” mentioned by the woman is not a suspect.
“We asked and did the obvious due diligence, and we looked into that, and it was pretty clear that this individual was not a part of the investigation as far as a suspect,” Steve Goncalves, the father of 21-year-old Kaylee Goncalves, said on Saturday’s “Lawrence Jones Cross Country.”

Kristine Cameron and Alina Smith, the creators, and administrators of the “University of Idaho Murders – Case Discussion” Facebook page, first provided the clip to Fox News Digital on Saturday, with the condition that just a single frame and audio be utilized.

They told Fox News Digital that it was given to them by a Moscow resident who had previously reported it to the police and felt that making it public will provide more information about the incident. The complete clip was allowed to be shown on Sunday.

Ben Merkle, president of the New Saint Andrews school, which owns the building on Main Street between the Corner Club and the food truck, told Fox News Digital on Sunday that he had already shared all of the material requested by Moscow police. There are several cameras on the outside. He said he had no role in the video’s public release.

“We can all scrutinize those couple of minutes at the food truck, but we just have to remember there was an entire evening before this,” Cameron told Fox News Digital. “There’s more than just that one timestamp that we have into that evening.”

Goncalves and Mogen, according to police, left the Corner Club bar at 1:30 a.m. on Nov. 13 and walked to the food truck, where they ordered and then got a ride back to their King Road home.

According to police, the driver is also not a suspect in the crime.

Cameron and Smith, whose organization has over 90,000 members and is actively following the case, released the video which they believe reveals the young guy in the hoodie was with Goncalves and Mogen before appearing in the food truck video. He is one of several persons who have been subjected to internet conjecture about the case, prompting authorities to warn web sleuths on Dec. 9 that online harassment and threats are illegal acts.

“People are drawing the conclusion that he’s creepy from that [few] minutes, and I want to give a bigger picture,” Cameron said. “He wasn’t just staring at them…He was with them prior.”

According to authorities, the two victims, roommate Xana Kernodle and her boyfriend, Ethan Chapin, all 20, had returned to the house at 1:45 a.m.

Investigators believe they were killed between 3 and 4 a.m. using a “fixed-blade knife,” as described by police.
Authorities stated last week that a white Hyundai Elantra sighted near the King Road residence around the time of the slayings may lead them to “important” information in the investigation.

They are also looking for further information regarding the evening of November 12 and the early hours of November 13.

Police have also requested the public to come forward with any “unusual” sightings of Goncalves and Mogen downtown, as well as anything relating to a frat party at the Sigma Chi home, 200 yards away from the crime site, where Kernodle and Chapin had spent much of the evening.

Police failed to address direct questions regarding the video, instead stating that they were reviewing any digital information provided through the FBI’s collection portal.

“Any digital content submitted as tips become part of the investigation,” Robbie Johnson, a police spokeswoman, told Fox News Digital Sunday morning. “We review and investigate all tips and leads.”
