Idaho police on Sunday said they have “cleared” multiple phone calls that victims of a Nov. 13 quadruple homicide near the University of Idaho made just before they were killed. 

Victims Kaylee Goncalves, 21, and Madison Mogen, 21, made “multiple” phone calls to a male subject just before they were stabbed to death while sleeping, but police have “cleared” the subject on the receiving end of those calls, Moscow Police Department Chief James Fry said during a Sunday press conference.

Goncalves and Mogen – along with Ethan Chapin, 20, and Xana Kernodle, 20 – were stabbed to death between 3 a.m. and 4 a.m. that Sunday while sleeping in their home on King Road near the university’s campus.
