At around 4 a.m. on November 13, 2014, University of Idaho undergrad Dylan Mortensen believed she heard Kaylee Goncalves’ dog playing upstairs. She also thought Kaylee was downstairs playing with her.
Mortensen thought she heard her 21-year-old friend say “there’s someone here” minutes later. However, when Mortensen looked out of her bedroom, she saw nothing. She peeked out of her bedroom door a second time when she heard crying from the bedroom of her roommate Xana Kernodle.
According to Mortensen, a male voice told her it was ok when she asked for help.
The third time Mortensen opened her bedroom door to a more terrifying sight was when she saw a man in black clothing wearing a mask that prevented him from breathing and noisily covering his nose and mouth. However, he simply walked past her and left the home through the back sliding glass door before she could even react. She remained in a state of shock for several minutes afterward.
Mortensen learned that three of her room mates and one of their boyfriends had been murdered hours later.
A document recently revealed through the court system reveals additional in depth information about the horrific events that occurred one night in a rental home located in Moscow, Idaho. This property has been the center of national attention ever since the event transpired.
The affidavit claims that investigators believe the murders happened between 4:00am and 4:25am.
More than a week after the deadly scene unfolded, police released information regarding a surviving roommate that had made a 911 call. The affidavit doesn’t mention which roommate made the call, but multiple people spoke with the 911 dispatcher over one of the roommates’ phones.
The document details the deaths of Madison Mogen, Ethan Chapin, Goncalves and Kohberger. It also contains information about the killing of Kernodle, a 20 year old student at the University of Idaho. This was recently done by a team of law enforcement that included local, state and federal officers. Koberger, a 28 year old Washington State University graduate in criminology, was arrested at his family’s home in Pennsylvania.
