Two University of Idaho murder victims seen in video footage hours before attack




 

Two of the four University of Idaho homicide victims, Madison Mogen and Kaylee Goncalves, were seen in video footage from a food truck before they were killed at their home near campus over the weekend.

In the video posted to Twitch - an online platform for livestreamed events - Mogen and Goncalves stand in line to order food from Grub Wandering Kitchen's food truck, dubbed the "Grub Truck," and talk with friends standing nearby in Friendship Square in Moscow, Idaho.

The Moscow Police Department is reviewing the footage, which was reportedly taken just hours before the murders, Latah County Prosecutor Bill Thompson told The Associated Press.

The four students' deaths have been ruled homicides, and while "no weapons have been located, based on preliminary information, investigators believe that an edged weapon such as a knife was used" in the attack, Moscow police said in a Tuesday statement.

The students' autopsies are scheduled to be completed later this week, at which point police will "hopefully provide more definitive information on the exact cause of the deaths," MPD said.

Police said that "based on information from the preliminary investigation, investigators believe this was an isolated, targeted attack and there is no imminent threat to the community at large."
