For the families of the four victims, the Idaho University murder investigation has been difficult and upsetting, but it has also had an impact on the ex-boyfriend of one of the victims, whose life has been turned upside down by suspicion.
According to his aunt Brooke Miller, who talked to the NY Post, Jack DuCoeur dated Kaylee Goncalves for five years and referred to her as the love of his life at that time. Miller thinks that even if Kaylee and Jack had split up, they still would have gotten married.
Three weeks before the killings, Kaylee broke up with DuCoeur. Although Miller admits her nephew was upset about the breakup, she claims the parting was amicable.
Police became aware of DuCoeur soon after the killings, particularly as a result of the ten calls that Goncalves and Madison Mogen made to him in the hours prior to the crimes.
DuCoeur was exonerated after a police investigation, but the suspicion remained. According to Miller, “half of America” believes that her nephew could be to blame.
DuCoeur has received harsh treatment online, with others accusing him of being the culprit.
By the way, Goncalves’ family has backed DuCoeur and asserted that he was not responsible for her passing. “We all know, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that Jack would never do anything like that to anyone,” Miller told the Post.
