MOSCOW, IDAHO: Kaylee Goncalves's grieving dad has said that the family won’t be celebrating Christmas this year. With a week to go before Christmas, the father of the Idaho murder victim appeared on Fox News on Saturday, December 17, to give an update on the investigation. Kaylee, 21, was one of the four University of Idaho students who were stabbed to death on November 13 along with Madison Mogen, 21, Xana Kernodle, 20, and Ethan Chapin, 20, at a house near campus in the small town of Moscow.

Steve Goncalves stated that his family "won't even really have a Christmas" as "you just can't get yourself there to where it would make sense." "It's still too close to our heart. How do you have a celebration like this when you've lost two of your favorite people in the world?" he added. Goncalves, who is still looking for answers, opened up to Fox News’ Lawrence Jones about the most recent developments in the case.

Idaho murders: Kaylee Goncalves's family 'feel' police cleared a 'couple of individuals very fast'

He said, "They've kind of informed us through communications that they've checked all the easiest paths. If this individual had this car registered to his name and it was just something very quick that they could just look up in the area and go right to his house — they've done all the due diligence there. They've done all that. So now they're reaching out and they're going to look to the community to see if this individual borrowed this car."
