Who is Dylan Mortensen?

Born in 2001, Dylan Mortensen is a University of Idaho student who shared a room with four other victims of the fatal stabbings in a Moscow, Idaho, residence.

Although Mortensen and another student escaped the attacks, according to a lawyer for the Goncalves family, whose daughter Kaylee Goncalves passed, Mortensen was too terrified to properly report the incident to the authorities.

Shanon Gray, the lawyer, said, “She was scared. She was scared to death, and rightly so. This guy had just murdered four people in the home,” as per Fox News.

Gray added that Mortensen’s description of the alleged killer aided officers in determining that it corresponded to the appearance of Bryan Kohberger. She stated, “She’s a victim in this case. Everybody kind of forgets that. The Goncalves family doesn’t have any ill will towards her or anything like that.”

According to the New York Post, Mortensen is not thought to be a suspect in the killings, according to Idaho investigators.

Mortensen shared housing at 1122 King Road with the four Idaho victims. The fact that Mortensen’s housemates were deeply active in the university’s Greek life was revealed despite the fact that further information was withheld.

Mortensen and surviving housemate Bethany Funke got identical tattoos as a memorial to the dead soon after the killings.

Authorities now believe that Bryan Kohberger most likely acted alone, despite their initial concerns about how long it took the survivors to report the killings. The murders reportedly went unreported for eight hours.

According to Heavy, a Moscow Police officer who wished to remain unnamed stated,  “(The 8-hour gap) has been something that we have puzzled over — we don’t know if it was an issue of the intoxication, or of fear.”

The policeman added that they were not suspicious of Mortenson despite this, though. The source said, “We look at these things through the lens of rational adults — and when we do that, sometimes things don’t make sense to us — but she’s a 20-year-old girl and we don’t know what she was doing, or if she was scared,” as per Sportskeeda.

The Father of victim Kaylee Goncalves, Steve Goncalves, stated: “You got to remember these two girls were so upset that when they went outside after seeing this … one passed out. And the other one was so hyperventilating that the message wasn’t clear enough for the operator.”
