A candlelight vigil was held Wednesday in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, in memory of the four University of Idaho students killed earlier in the week. Community residents gathered at Independence Point to mourn the students discovered dead in their home on November 13 – Ethan Chapin, 20, Xana Kernodle, 20, Madison Mogen, 21, and Kaylee Goncalves, 21.
Angela Navejas, who organised the vigil and knew the pupils through her daughter, was among the grieving. The Coeur d’Alene Press cited Navejas’ description of them as “vibrant and wild, carefree and affectionate.” “We are aware of the brilliant stars that have visited Earth. They are up there, watching over us, “She spoke.
They are all the most incredible kids I have ever met, she continued, calling them all. According to KXLY, Navejas is the mother of Mogen’s close friend Ashlin, who resided in the house where the four victims were killed. According to Coeur d’Alene Press, Goncalves’s former coworker Kirsten Rowley called her a “ball of joy” and said she and her best friend Mogen were inseparable.
Rowley added, “My heart hurts so much for the people who lost both. Former coworkers Rowley and Goncalves were at Dutch Bros on Northwest Boulevard. As his best buddy in high school, Garrett Sciortino recounted some enjoyable recollections, adding that this is what Kernodle would have wanted.

Sciortino told the newspaper, “I believe if she were standing here, she would want us to remember the wonderful moments. Added him: “I’m aware you’re listening right now, Xana. I only want to express my love for you. I always have and will continue to.” Sciortino urged law enforcement to “do all” possible to “bring the monster responsible to justice.” Bob Norris, the sheriff for Kootenai County, was also present.
The homicide investigation at the University of Idaho has sent shockwaves through the tight-knit campus community, where very little about the students’ deaths has been revealed so far. Here’s what we do know. ⬇️#wuc #kcm #news #idaho https://t.co/7EbCZRd4L6

In addition to the relatives and friends of the victims of this terrible criminal act, Kootenai County, the state, and the country all express their sorrow, according to Norris. Separately, Ethan Chapin’s family revealed to the Associated Press that one of their last encounters with their triplet son was at a sorority dance.
According to Stacy Chapin, the mother of Chapin, “He was our daughter Maizie’s date, and his brother was Maizie’s roommate date.” “They enjoyed spending their final day together, getting dressed and having fun. We are all appreciative of the time they spent together.”
Mother continued: “He could see how to improve any circumstance. Just how carefree was he?” Chief James Fry of the Moscow Police Department discussed the triple killing in more detail during a press conference earlier in the day.
He claimed that the Moscow neighbourhood is still “potentially” under threat because, as of Wednesday night, no suspects or persons of interest had been taken into custody. Scott Green, president of the University of Idaho, also appeared at the news conference and referred to the students’ deaths as “beyond comprehension.”
Ethan, Kaylie, Zina, and Madison’s families and friends have my sincere sympathies. First, Green added. They were shining lights in our community, and their loss has been tragic. They will always be missed and in our thoughts and prayers. Added him: “Even though our small community is not immune to such things.
Our tight-knit campus isn’t used to coping with situations like these.” According to the school administration, the school “when questioned and continuously pushed for information whenever possible” is ultimately collaborating with the Moscow police.
