One of four University of Idaho students brutally stabbed to death at an off-campus house allegedly called the same man seven times shortly before the murders.

Xana Kernodle, 20, Ethan Chapin, 20, Madison Mogen, 21, and Kaylee Goncalves, 21, were found dead in a home in the small university town of Moscow on November 13.

Nearly a week later, no suspects have been identified.

Now Goncalves’ sister Alivea has claimed she made seven calls to a man between 2:26 a.m. and 2:44 a.m. on the evening of the murders – which police say took place between 3 a.m. and 4 a.m. morning.

Meanwhile, families of the victims have spoken out against online speculation about the mysterious murders.

Jeffrey Kernodle said The Independent that the FBI “said nothing” on Thursday and called the brutal murder of his daughter his “worst nightmare”.

A coroner’s report released on Friday said the victims were “probably asleep” when they were stabbed repeatedly with a large knife.

The victim’s father is frustrated by speculation about the murders

Jeffrey Kornodle, the father of one of four University of Idaho students found stabbed to death in the home they shared, said The Independent he is growing increasingly frustrated with speculation surrounding the mysterious murder of his daughter, 20-year-old Xana Kernodle.

Mr Kornodle said the FBI ‘wasn’t saying anything’ on Thursday and called the tragedy its ‘worst nightmare’.

“How can you protect a child? You keep them at home and you don’t let him go to college? They are not going to stay at home like this, ”said Mr Kornodle The Independent. “So it’s really mind-boggling. It is simply unthinkable and it is the worst nightmare.

‘She’s a tough kid’: Xana Kernodle describes home security and her daughter’s autopsy

Jeffrey Kernodle, Xana Kernodle’s father, has provided new details about his daughter’s autopsy, as well as the security arrangements at the rental house where Xana and her three friends were killed on November 13.

The rental house required a number pad to enter, so Mr Kernodle believes the attacker must have found another way to sneak in.

“So either they knew or they just went around and found the slider [sliding door] open,” Mr. Kernodle said.

“I think midnight was the last time we heard from her, and she was fine,” he said, describing how Xana and her boyfriend Ethan Chapin, 20, were “just hanging out at home ” before being killed.

The father also shared gruesome details from Xana’s autopsy, which he said showed his daughter had fought off her attacker.

“Bruises, torn by the knife. She’s a tough kid,” Mr Kernodle said. “Anything she wanted to do, she could do.”

Idaho police eliminate multiple suspects in college quadruple murder

For a time, police questioned whether two housemates of the deceased could be involved, as well as an unidentified man captured in surveillance video just before the alleged time of the killings.

“At this stage of the investigation, detectives do not believe the two surviving roommates or the man from the Grub Truck surveillance video were involved in this crime,” police said in a Facebook update Friday. “Furthermore, online reports of bound and gagged victims are not accurate. The identity of the 911 caller has not been released. Earlier, the police had also told the Idaho Grandstand they had ruled out an ex-boyfriend of one of the victims.
