On November 13, 2014, at approximately 4:00 a.m., University of Idaho undergraduate Dylan Mortensen believed she heard Kaylee Goncalves’ dog playing upstairs. She also believed that Kaylee was playing with her downstairs.
Mortensen believed she heard her 21-year-old friend say “someone is here” a few minutes later. Mortensen saw nothing when she looked out of her bedroom window. She peeked out of her bedroom door a second time when she heard Xana Kerndle sobbing in her roommate’s bedroom.
Mortensen claims that a male voice told her it was okay when she asked for assistance.
The third time Mortensen opened her bedroom door to a terrifying sight, she saw a man in black clothing with a mask that prevented him from breathing and covered his nose and mouth with noise. Before she could even react, he simply walked past her and exited through the back sliding glass door. After that, she remained in a state of shock for several minutes.
Mortensen found out hours later that three of her roommates and one of their boyfriends had been murdered.
A document recently disclosed through the court system provides additional detail about the horrific events that transpired in a Moscow, Idaho, rental home one night. Since its occurrence, this property has been the centre of national attention.
According to the affidavit, investigators believe the murders occurred between 4:00 and 4:25 a.m.
Police released information about a surviving roommate who had dialled 911 more than a week after the heinous crime occurred. The affidavit does not specify which roommate placed the 911 call, but multiple individuals spoke with the 911 dispatcher over one of the roommates’ phones.
The document contains information regarding the deaths of Madison Mogen, Ethan Chapin, Goncalves, and Kohberger. It also contains details about the murder of Kernodle, a 20-year-old University of Idaho student.This was recently accomplished by a team of local, state, and federal law enforcement officers. Koberger, a 28-year-old criminology graduate of Washington State University, was arrested at his family’s residence in Pennsylvania.
