‘Constantly walking behind her’: Store Manager Says Idaho College Murder Victim Kaylee Goncalves Complained of Stalker

One of the four murdered University of Idaho students may have had a stalker, according to a store manager who spoke to her friends.

According to NewsNation’s Brian Entin, a Moscow vape shop manager said Kaylee’s friend said she complained about a man who had been following her around three weeks before she was found dead.

As CrimeOnline previously reported, Kaylee, 21; Madison Mogen, 21; Ethan Chapin, 20; and Xana Kernodle, 20 murdered on November 13 in their off-campus rental near the school. The killer(s) used a sharp-edged knife, according to police.

“[The stalker was] aparently something that Kaylee had tons of issues with. Apparently, she always had somebody who was constantly walking behind her like that,” the store manager told Entin.

The manager said Kaylee and her friends visited the vape shop often, and her friends were always looking out for her safety.

“You could tell they were all obviously trying to keep Kaylee safe and be there for her as good friends.”

He added that Kaylee complained about the stalker the same night of the murder, as she went bar-hopping with friends. With no cameras on the outside, however, the manager had no way of showing police security footage. Police also requested video from the indoor camera a few days after the murder, but the footage had already been deleted.

Meanwhile, the investigation continues.

Last week, Moscow police said they were “interested in speaking with the occupant(s)” of a white Hyundai Elantra that was reported in the area around the time the students were murdered.

So far, no suspects have been named or apprehended.

They asked anyone who owns or knows of someone who owns a white Elantra — a 2011-2013 model — to send that information to the tip line at 208-883-7180, email to tipline@ci.moscow.id.us, or upload digital media at fbi.gov/moscowidaho.
