Since the Nov. 13 slaying of 21-year-olds Madison Mogen and Kaylee Goncalves along with 20-year-olds Xana Kernodle and Ethan Chapin, there has been little perceived progress in locating a suspect as far as the public has been concerned. Private citizens determined to find a resolution have banded together revealing footage that had previously only been submitted to law enforcement.

Representing the private Facebook group “University of Idaho Murders – Case Discussion” that they created and now has over 100,000 members, Kristine Cameron and Alina Smith spoke with Fox News Digital about the video showing Goncalves and Mogen walking with a man in a black jacket who had appeared in another video with the pair on the night in question.

“People are drawing the conclusion that he’s creepy from the [few] minutes, and I want to give a bigger picture,” Cameron told the outlet. “He wasn’t just staring at them…He was with them prior.”

The snippet of audio heard in the redacted video was said to include an exchange between the victims with Goncalves saying, “Maddie, what did you say to Adam?” before Mogen replies, “Like, I told Adam everything.”

Clips of the duo outside a food truck on the night of their murder had been public for some time, and Cameron suggested, “We can all scrutinize those couple of minutes at the food truck, but we just have to remember there was an entire evening before this. There’s more than just that one timestamp that we have into that evening.”

Meanwhile, NewsNation senior national correspondent Brian Entin spoke with a vape shop manager in Moscow, Idaho who regularly saw the victims with their friends and, having spoken with them weeks prior to the tragedy, had suggested Goncalves was dealing with a stalker issue.

“You could tell they were all obviously trying to keep Kaylee safe and be there for her as good friends,” the manager said and expressed of a potential stalker, it was “apparently something that Kaylee had tons of issues with. Apparently, she always had somebody who was constantly walking behind her like that.”

As previously reported, Moscow Police Chief James Fry cautioned lone investigators not to cross a line indicating, “What we want people to know is…that individuals who are being harassed in this situation, people need to be careful because some of it’s happening online, some it’s happening through phone calls and in person, and people could be charged possibly in the future if it continues to a point where it reaches a criminal element.”

To the official investigation, the Moscow Police Department have continued their effort to identify the occupant or occupants of a white 2011-2013 Hyundai Elantra that had been observed in the vicinity of the residence the night the victims were slain in hopes of gathering more information. In their most recent update provided Friday, they ensured, “After sorting through the majority of the digital content gathered from critical cameras during crucial times before and after the homicides took place, investigators continue to comb through hours and hours of digital content submitted by businesses, homes, and the public.”
