MOSCOW, IDAHO: The investigation into the fatal stabbings of Kaylee Goncalves, Madison Mogen, Xana Kernodle and Ethan Chapin is ongoing, and police have not yet named a suspect. In related news, former law enforcement officer Kenneth Mains interviewed a convicted killer on death row in San Quentin, California, who provided brand new insight into the horrific Idaho massacre.
Death row inmate William Noguera shared his theory in an interview with Mains' YouTube channel Unsolved No More saying, "I believe that the killer was inside the house (property located on King Road) already. I believe that the person was already in the house when the kids arrived...he took advantage that they were not home." Post the interview, Newsweek reached out to Mains and he quipped, "I understand where he is coming from with saying the offender was in the house already. It does have merit. Yet, I would not make that conclusion based on what I have seen. It is certainly possible." Noguera also said investigators should look for cuts or marks in the woods near the house because the suspect could be watching the house from there.
Jennifer Coffindaffer, a former agent of FBI, commented on the theory that the killer might be waiting for his victims in the house, "I think it's safe to say...it would be more likely someone would have been there, possibly, in plain sight, at least initially. And then just didn't leave and [the victims] thought they left." He believed that it could be an individual "on the peripheral that could be in this party house and just not left."

Internet weighs in on William Noguera's theory
One user liked the theory and said, "Hearing him say the killer was already in the house is something I thought of before. This killer was obviously familiar with the house, but that doesn’t mean he was there visiting before. It could mean he was in it while they were out, looked around and then stalked/waiting for them to return. I’m not sure, before listening to this I didn’t think it was some random psycho but now im not aure" Another user wrote, "I really liked his point about the knife markings in the woods around the house. It was a great point I had literally not heard anywhere else here"
One user commented, "i've been curious about the back woods too, as an entry point and watch point. there's a road behind there - i wonder if anyone who lives on that road saw any coming/going of a person in the weeks beforehand" Another user wrote, "It was very very interesting and fascinating! I think he could shed a lot of light on this and other investigations/ cold cases. He seems extremely intelligent and very articulate."
