Idaho murders: The family of the slain student plans to hire a lawyer amid tensions between police and students

The shattered father of a murdered Idaho college student plans to enlist a lawyer to help him obtain more information from police amid frustrations over the pace and progress of the probe.

FIRST ON FOX – Kaylee Goncalves, a University of Idaho student who was murdered, has her family hired a lawyer to help them in their dispute with the police. They are unhappy about what they perceive as a lack of transparency and an unreliable investigation.

Fox News Digital Tuesday: Steve Goncalves, a grieving father, said that he had spoken with several attorneys and could force the police release more information about the case.

He said, “There are some things we can ask for and other things we can do in order to get to the truth quicker.” To get the evidence released, you will need to complete forms. I don’t know what to do.

Madison Mogen, Madison Mogen’s 21-year old daughter and Xana Kernodle (20 years), her boyfriend, Ethan Chapin, were stabbed to death at a nearby rental house in the early hours of Nov. 13.

Police have admitted that they do not have a suspect in the grisly murder.

Goncalves stated that he is frustrated by the flood of speculation and rumors swirling on social networks about the slayings and the unwillingness of the Moscow Police Department, to address many of them.

“They’ve made a million mistakes. Steve has no experience so I can’t say it. He doesn’t know. He is just a father who woke up one morning and saw his life turn upside down.”

The family already has a private investigator hired to crack the case. They claim that the local police are not equipped to handle such a complex investigation.

Goncalves would not reveal the identity of the gumshoe but stated that it was a former cop with fifty years of experience and an 87% success ratio in solving cases. He said, “He’s an absolute pro.”

Moscow Police Department has, along with the FBI and Idaho State Police, struggled to communicate a consistent message to officials and has made contradictory statements in the past.

Initial statements by police that they believed at most one victim was being targeted were made before the claim was retracted last week. The police reversed their position a day later and claimed that the attack was targeted.

Goncalves stated that there was confusion wherever he looked about the probe. It’s absurd to see the amount of things going on now.

He also questioned the department’s decision to quickly declare suspects, while refusing to reveal their alibis.

He said, “If you don’t share your alibi, then you’re afraid your alibi won’t be strong enough to share it with the community because that allows them to peer review it.”

The father, who was distraught, said that the police quickly dismissed a connection between Idaho’s slayings and Oregon’s stabbings in Washington while refusing to explain their position.

He said, “Don’t treat me like a bunch of small children.” “You say it’s unrelated — tell us why it isn’t.”


He said, “They’ve made a million mistakes.” Steve has no experience so I can’t say it. He doesn’t know. He is just a father who woke up one morning and saw his life turn upside down.
