Kaylee Goncalves Wiki, Biography
On Thursday, January 12, Law & Crime released a video of Idaho massacre victim Kaylee Goncalves speaking to authorities on September 2, just over two months before she was killed.
On November 13, University of Idaho student Kaylee Goncalves was murdered along with three other people at her home on King Road in Moscow, Idaho. The other victims were Madison Mogen, Xana Kernodle, and Ethan Chapin.
In recently released surveillance footage, Moscow authorities can be seen approaching Kaylee Goncalves in the direction of King Road in response to a noise complaint. Goncalves and her friends were reportedly having a party at the time.
During authorities’ conversation with Kaylee Goncalves, she confirmed that she was a resident of the King Road home and that she would make an effort to keep noise down. The officer eventually left the scene after giving Goncalves a verbal warning.
Officers confronted Kaylee Goncalves regarding a noise complaint two months before her death.
In the footage, Kaylee Goncalves can be heard telling the officer that she believed she was there because of a noise complaint.
The officer replied:
“There’s nothing against having a party [but] once the neighbors start calling, then we have a problem.”
He also talked about how having a party was not a problem in itself, but they couldn’t disturb the neighbors:
“Once I have neighbors calling, your music is too loud, you are disturbing the peace. There’s nothing against having parties, having people of drinking age, but again, once we start disturbing the neighbors, we have a problem.”
After Goncalves confirmed that she would address the noise, the officer explained that if she needed to return to the scene, she would issue a fine that would cost between $300 and $400.
“I don’t want to give you that. That being said, this is your place, I will hold you accountable. Because it is your place, you are also responsible for everyone here.”
He went on further saying:
“So I’m going to get the information from her and if I have to come back here, she’ll be fined $300 and something. I’d rather you spend that $300 on beer or something fun instead of a noise ticket.”
The incident is not related to the murders. However, authorities in Moscow likely released it in an effort to disseminate surveillance images and photos to the public, in case any potential witnesses could step forward to provide them with a lead.
The Gonçalves family responds to the death of the victim
In an interview with KTVB, Kaylee Goncalves’ father, Steve Goncalves, discussed her thoughts after the arrest of Bryan Kohberger, the 28-year-old criminal justice graduate suspected in the murders.
“I’m relieved. It was almost seven weeks without any clear guidance that we were on the right track. We knew there was evidence, but all of that can’t mean anything until you have a face and a person or personality to put it towards.”
KTVB added that the young Goncalves was murdered in the same bed as her friend, Madison Mogen.
