The beloved dog of killed University of Idaho student Kaylee Goncalves is getting a lot of love from internet followers, and he even has his own Amazon wishlist.
Murphy was located unhurt inside an off-campus student residence in Moscow, Idaho, on November 13 after Goncalves, Madison Mogen, Xana Kernodle, and Ethan Chapin were found horrifically stabbed to death.
Murphy has since been living with Goncalves’ ex-boyfriend Jack DuCoeur, with whom he shares the Goldendoodle.
Mr. DuCouer started an Instagram account for the dog in January, which has now acquired over 100,000 followers.
On Thursday, Goncalves’ bereaved family provided a fresh update regarding Murphy’s life on The Goncalves Family Page on Facebook.
Murphy, they claimed, “is having his finest life” and “gets to go on numerous excursions” with his owner.
The family also set up an Amazon wishlist so that fans could give Murphy things.
“Hi… this is for everyone who has inquired about Murphy. Murphy is having the time of his life with Jack,” the message said.
“Murphy is ecstatic because he gets to embark on so many adventures. Several people have asked whether they may give him anything, so we created an Amazon wishlist for him. We want you to understand that this is a wishlist, not a necessity list.
“We will be giving several items to our local animal shelter in Murphy’s honor. Apart from God, the only thing our family needs is all of you. We are very grateful for all of your encouragement, good wishes, and prayers. Much love to everyone!!”
Chew toys, dog vehicle seatbelts, and pet blankets are among the goods on the “Murphy’s Doggie Donations” wishlist.
Numerous social media users expressed their condolences on the family’s Facebook post.
“I hope Jack receives as much love and comfort from Murphy as Murphy child receives from him and the rest of the world. “We continue to love and support you all tremendously,” one individual commented.
“I will certainly send Murphy some cookies!” Much love to everyone! Hugs!” Someone else wrote.
The outpouring of love comes as newly disclosed court records indicate that police looking into the savage slayings filed warrants to over 40 businesses as they seek murder charges against alleged murderer Bryan Kohberger.
The court ordered that the warrants be sealed and redacted so that any evidence discovered during the searches is unknown.
The orders requiring the warrants to be sealed, however, revealed whose firms had been given warrants.
The enterprises vary from online dating sites like Tinder to online payment services like Venmo and fast food delivery services like DoorDash and Venmo.
Amazon, American Express, Apple, AT&T, Bank of America, Banner Bank in Spokane, Washington, Block, Inc. (formerly Square, Inc.), Blue Ridge Knives in Marion, Virginia, Charter Communications, Coeur d’Alene Police Department Forensic Lab, Discover Bank, DoorDash, Ebay, Elan Financial Services, Extreme Networks, Google, Idaho Central Credit Union, Idaho Department of Labor, Inland Cellular, KA-BAR Knives
Some of the firms that have been alerted seem to be more visible than others.
A search warrant was filed on KA-BAR Knives after the perpetrator left a KA-BAR knife sheath at the site of the killings. According to a criminal document, the DNA recovered on the sheath matches Mr. Kohberger.
However, only minutes before she was slain, Kernodle received a DoorDash order to her off-campus house.
Some warrants requested information on Mr. Kohberger, while others wanted information about the victims, such as access to their Facebook and Snapchat accounts.
This comes as detectives seek to put together any potential relationship between the kids and their suspected murderer, as well as what his motivation for the quadruple killings may have been.
Many of the warrants were submitted in December, during the height of the investigation into the 13 November killings, but were only recently made public after the judge ordered that they be sealed until further notice by the court.
The justifications given in the judge’s orders for keeping the trove of papers secret were all the same.
“The records include very personal facts or remarks that would be highly offensive to a reasonable person if published,” the orders said.
“The records include facts or comments that may jeopardize the life or safety of persons or threaten their safety, and publication would constitute an unjustified invasion of privacy.”
Although the Idaho search warrants remain secret, warrants for Mr. Kohberger’s family home in Pennsylvania have lately been released.
According to the warrants, a Glock.40 caliber pistol, empty gun magazines, a dagger, a pocket knife, black face masks, and black gloves were discovered during a search of the residence in Chestnuthill Township on December 30 during an early morning raid.
A “book with content on page 118,” Mr. Kohberger’s phone bills, and a “green leafy material in a small bag” were also confiscated.
On the same day, Mr. Kohberger’s residence in Pullman and his workplace at Washington State University (WSU) were searched.
Investigators collected a number of things from his residence, including suspected human and animal hair strands, a disposable glove, objects with red and brown stains, and a computer, according to the released records.
Police also obtained samples from Mr. Kohberger’s vehicle and confiscated a shovel, gloves and goggles, a bandage, and a luminous vest.
Mr. Kohberger, a 28-year-old Ph.D. student at Washington State University, was detained during a search on his family’s house in Pennsylvania on December 30 and extradited to Moscow, Idaho, to face murder charges.
He is suspected of killing four University of Idaho students in a vicious knife assault that shook the quiet college town.
On November 13, he reportedly invaded the off-campus student residence that the three young ladies shared and stabbed all four victims to death.
Two other housemates were left in the house uninjured.
In the aftermath of the killings, one of the surviving roommates came face to face with the murderer, who was disguised, clothed in head-to-toe black, and had bushy eyebrows.
The corpses of the victims were recovered hours later.
The document, which was unsealed in January, indicated that authorities think Mr. Kohberger followed the student house in the days leading up to the mass murder, with cellphone data showing him passing by the residence 12 times before November 13th.
Investigators suspect Mr. Kohberger switched off his smartphone during the killings to avoid discovery.
But, cellphone data shows him near the residence on King Road at roughly 9 a.m. on November 13, implying that he returned to the site of the crime mere hours after allegedly killing the four victims at around 4 a.m., according to the affidavit.
Mr. Kohberger, a criminal justice Ph.D. student at WSU, resided in Pullman, Idaho, roughly 15 minutes from the victims. He had relocated there from Pennsylvania for the summer, having barely finished his first semester before his arrest.
Prior to this, he studied criminology at DeSales University, first as an undergraduate and subsequently as a graduate student, ending in June 2022.
During his time there, he studied under famous forensic psychologist Katherine Ramsland, who examined the BTK serial murderer and collaborated with him on the book Confession of a Serial Killer: The True Story of Dennis Rader, the BTK Killer.
He also took out a study effort “to explore how emotions and psychological features impact decision-making while committing a crime”.
He now faces life in jail or the death sentence for the killings, which shook the quiet college town of Moscow and made headlines across the world.
On June 26, he is scheduled to appear in court for a preliminary hearing.
