Father of Murdered Idaho Student Maddie Mogen Has a Different “Spin” On Murder Case

There’s still no break in the Idaho quadruple murder case. To say this is unbelievable would be an understatement. Was this a professional “hit?” How else do we explain how this murderer has seemingly got away with the perfect crime? At a time in this world, where we’re all under surveillance, DNA technology has soared, how can a person who murdered 4 innocent people, stabbing them to death, just slip off into the night, undetected?

It’s hard to believe, and the reality is that the case is dangerously close to going cold.

But one grieving father, who has been very quiet thus far, is speaking out, ad he has a totally different spin on the murder of his daughter and her three friends.

The New York Post reported that the father of slain University of Idaho student Madison Mogen believes the person who stabbed his daughter and three of her friends to death will be caught.

Ben Mogen told the Spokesman-Review he remains optimistic that the efforts of the Moscow, Idaho, police, FBI and state troopers will solve the crime, even though they have yet to announce any suspects or clear working leads six weeks after the brutal quadruple slaying.

“From the very beginning, I’ve known people don’t get away with these things these days,” the grieving dad said of the brutal early morning stabbings that took place on Nov. 13.

“There’s too many things that you can get caught up on, like DNA and videos everywhere,” he said, even though so far such a clue does not appear to have been found.

“This isn’t something that people get away with, that goes unsolved,” he told the Idaho newspaper.

Still, Mogen said it has been excruciating waiting for a breakthrough so long after his 21-year-old daughter was stabbed alongside her best friend Kaylee Goncalves, also 21, their housemate Xana Kernodle, 20, and her boyfriend Ethan Chapin, 20.

“There were so many questions I figured would be answered, and we’re still waiting,” Mogen told the paper.

Unlike Goncalves’ father — who has repeatedly criticized the police investigation and the lack of updates — Mogen spoke highly of the daily check-ins he gets from officers.

He also remains confident in the small-town Moscow force, which is leading the investigation, given it has assistance from state and federal agencies.

“I have to just know that they know what they’re doing, and if they don’t, then they know someone that does,” Mogen said of investigators.

Each one of these parents is handling this nightmare they’ve been thrown into, the best way they can. I admire this man’s optimism, and I hope he’s right. But I also understand the frustration from Kaylee’s father.

No parent should ever have to go through this.
