Haunting new video from the night of the horrific University of Idaho murders in November shows two of the victims walking alongside a mystery man hours before they were slain.
Kayla Goncalves and Maddie Mogen were recorded on a surveillance video in downtown Moscow after they were recorded a food truck. The man walking beside them matches the image of man pictured standing near them at the truck.
Police believe that this person is not a suspect in the brutal slayings of Mogen, 21, Goncalves, 21, Xana Kernodle, 20, and her boyfriend, Ethan Chapain, 20.
In the audio, a woman can be heard asking Goncalves and Maddie Mogen: ‘Maddie, what did you say to Adam?’ Another voice responds: ‘Like, I told Adam everything.’ Fox News reports that the first woman’s voice is that of Goncalves.
The video was first uploaded on the Facebook group: ‘University of Idaho Murders – Case Discussion.’ The video was given to them by a resident of Moscow, Idaho, who says that they have given it to police investigators.

The pair were at the Corner Club bar until 1:30 am, went to the food truck, then got a ride home. Police have already said that the driver of the car is not a suspect.
One of the administrators of the Facebook group, Kristine Cameron, told Fox News: ‘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.’
Speaking about a man who was previously seen with at the pair at the food truck, who is also in the new video, Cameron said: ‘People are drawing the conclusion that he’s creepy from that [few] minutes, and I want to give a bigger picture. He wasn’t just staring at them…He was with them prior.’
Goncalves (right, pictured with Mogen) reportedly told him that the stalker would follow her ‘at night’ when she was going to or from bars, either by the ‘campus or down on Main Street’
The video shows Madison Mogen and Kaylee Goncalves stumbling towards the desk, ordering a plate of carbonara pasta, and waiting 10 minutes. They interacted with other young kids who were also waiting for food and took photos of each other before walking away with their food
There were dozens of other youngsters waiting for food at the truck, which is parked outside a nightclub in downtown Moscow, Idaho, every Saturday between 10pm and 2.30am. One young man, who is shown standing behind Kaylee with his hood up, appeared to be with them, but he did not leave with them
While Kaylee ordered, Madison spotted a friend and walked over to hug him warmly (right). She then returned to wait with Kaylee
The girls walk away from the food truck at around 1.53am, less than two hours before police say they were murdered at home
Earlier on Saturday, it was reported that Goncalves was scared of a stalker in the weeks leading up toe the murders– something Moscow Police have denied knowledge of.
But a vape shop manager now claims he discussed Goncalves stalker with her and Mogen three weeks before they were slain in their beds.
He told NewsNation: ‘Kaylee and Maddie would both come in here, they always had a smile on their face, they were the light of the world.
‘They always came in with a group of four or five girls at most,all the time they would come in together.
‘I made a joke about them coming in together, that it was nice to see that they were trying to stay safe.
‘Maddie then said oh we had a friend of ours be stalked, which is why we travel in a group. She was motioning to Kaylee as she said it.
‘It seemed as though they were all trying to keep Kaylee safe, and be there for her as friends. This was three weeks before the murder.

Goncalves, 21, was one of the four students brutally knifed to death in Idaho, Moscow, on November 13. There have been several claims that she was being stalked before her death
Goncalves reportedly told him that the stalker would follow her ‘at night’ when she was going to or from bars, either by the ‘campus or down on Main Street’.
Her family have said they were not aware of any stalker, despite the manager claiming it was something she had ‘tons of issues with’.
She ‘always had to have someone who was constantly walking behind her’ in order to keep her feeling safe.
It comes as police are trawling footage after a possible scream may have been picked up on an officer’s bodycam on the night of the murders.
The high-pitched sound, recorded at 3:12am, was captured by a Moscow police officer who was responding to an unrelated incident near the University of Idaho.
Some web-sleuths believe that the sound is a scream, while others think it could be the sound of car tyres peeling away.
The noise appears to have been made around the time the students were killed and authorities hope it may help them in determining what happened.
Police have found no evidence of a sex crime, and the victims had wounds on their bodies which indicated that they tried to fight of the attacker.
Initially cops said they thought all four were assaulted as they slept, with Goncalves father saying she had the worst injuries from the incident – suffering ‘gouging wounds’ and ‘rips’.
Idaho police have said the four University of Idaho students were murdered in their sleep between 3am and 4am (Pictured: Victims Kaylee Goncalves, 21, Maddie Mogen, 21, Xana Kernodle, 20, and 20-year-old Ethan Chapin)
The Chief of police at Moscow Police Department himself admitted that investigators did not understand how the two surviving roommates – Bethany Funke and Dylan Mortensen – appeared to sleep through the attack.
Newly released video footage from a police stop that occurred near the student’s King Street home had earlier been brought to the fore by internet sleuths.
The officer’s bodycam captured the moment plain clothes officers made an unrelated stop in the area for three students suspected of underage drinking.
In the background of the video, aside from the ‘scream’, several people can also be seen moving quickly past police on Taylor Avenue, just two houses down from the scene of the crime and minutes before the killings occurred.
A forensic pathologist and former medical examiner also told Fox news that the toxicology reports for the slain students could hold potential answers to the unsolved case.
Dr Michael Baden questioned if they had taken any drugs which ’caused them to sleep’ during the encounter.
Latah County Coroner Cathy Mabbutt last week dismissed the tests, saying that they had not yet come back from the lab – adding that they were irrelevant.
The Moscow Police Department declined to comment on whether toxicology reports are still pending.
So far, the investigation – which is now moving into its fifth week – has not yet produced any suspects or motive for the murders and pressure continues to mount on officers who have yet to make a single arrest.
The families of the victims have expressed frustration with the lack of information provided by investigators and no murder weapon has yet been found.
Moscow Police are currently examining ‘massive amounts’ of digital content from local homes and businesses.
Authorities had asked for any information about a white Hyundai Elantra spotted near the scene of the murders — though it is unclear whether the white sedan caught in surveillance footage is the same vehicle
Captain Roger Lanier said on Thursday that they had been sifting through a database of 22,000 registered white Hyundai Elantras that fit into their criteria that they are sorting through.
Police have said that the license plate of the vehicle is still unknown and could have been removed.
The head of Moscow Police said there are ‘multiple groups’ scanning through clips as they try to track down those responsible.
He vowed his force would continue to work over Christmas as the team comes under huge pressure to finally make an arrest over a month after the stabbings.
It comes after it was revealed officers are only now asking for security footage from gas stations 24 miles away in nearby towns.
Moscow police chief James Fry said: ‘We will continue to keep up this pace [over the holidays].
