Kaylee Goncalves, one of four University of Idaho students brutally murdered Nov. 13, told others she “may have had a stalker” before she was killed, but authorities have not been able to verify that information, police said Wednesday.

Moscow Police Capt. Roger Lanier told reporters Wednesday, “We had information through some of our interviews that Kaylee made some comments about being a stalker.

“We’ve looked at specific time frames and specific areas of the city. So far, we haven’t been able to support that, but we haven’t looked at that piece of information.”

Police previously said they received “hundreds of pieces of information” related to the possible detention of Goncalves.
