Video shows two of the four murdered University of Idaho students ordering pasta from a popular food truck late at night shortly before they were brutally stabbed to death in what authorities described as a “targeted attack.”
Friends Madison Mugen and Kylie Goncalves can be seen ordering a plate of carbonara from Grub Truckers around 1:30 a.m. Sunday, according to a food truck livestream on Twitch.
Authorities said the 21-year-old women, along with their 20-year-old boyfriends Ethan Chapin and Zanna Kernodel — who they were reportedly dating — were murdered inside a home less than a mile from Moscow College, Idaho, in the early morning hours Sunday.
In a video from the food cart, Mugen and Goncalves are seen chatting with others while they wait for their grub.
Joseph Woodall, director of the food cart told CNN that the women did not appear to be in danger or distress at the time.
“There was nothing out of the ordinary, they were definitely having a good time, but I don’t remember anyone notable,” Woodall told the Daily Mail. “There was no one giving bad vibes or standing around.”
Moscow Police Chief James Frey said during a press conference on Wednesday night that the authorities were aware of the food truck video.
“It helped,” Frey said of the footage. “It gives us the time and place where we know two of our victims are.”
Fry said Chapin and Kernodel were at a party on campus and that Mugen and Goncalves were at a downtown bar in the hours before they were all killed.
Fry said the friends arrived off campus and were living in their home sometime after 1:45 a.m., and were later murdered.
Authorities have yet to identify a suspect in connection with the killings, which have shocked the small college town.
At the time of the stabbing, two of the roommates were in the house, but 911 was not called until hours after the four students were killed.
“We don’t know why this call came at noon and not in the middle of the night,” Frey said.
He explained that the police were “focusing on everyone who came and left that house”.
