Two of the University of Idaho’s four murder victims, Madison Mogen and Kaylee Goncalves, were seen in video footage from a food truck before being killed at their home near campus over the weekend.

In the video posted to Twitch — an online platform for live streaming events — Mogen and Goncalves stand in line to order food from Grub Wandering Kitchen’s food truck, dubbed the “Grub Truck,” and talk with friends standing nearby in Friendship Square Moscow, Idaho.

Moscow police are reviewing the footage, which was reportedly taken just hours before the murders, Latah County Prosecutor Bill Thompson told The The Bharat Express News.

The deaths of the four students have been ruled a homicide, and while “no weapons were found, investigators believe, based on preliminary information, that a sharp weapon such as a knife was used” in the attack, Moscow police said in a statement Tuesday. .
