Murdered Idaho student Madison Mogen’s stepfather, Scott Laramie, speaks out

The devastated stepfather of Madison Mogen, one of the four murdered University of Idaho students, described her death as “the hardest thing in the world” – as he shared his frustration at the lack of progress on the case.

“Sometimes it’s still hard to believe. We get up in the morning and it’s like, ‘No, that’s not going to happen,’ then it kicks in,” Scott Laramie told Fox News Digital on Monday.

The 21-year-old student, known as Maddie, her close friend Kaylee Goncalves, 21, Xana Kernodle, 20, and boyfriend Ethan Chapin, 20, were butchered at an off-campus home in Moscow on November 13.

Authorities have yet to name a suspect or locate the knife used in the massacre that has left the community reeling.

Laramie said police told him they had no leads nearly three weeks after the shocking crime.

“They update us every day. We’ve asked them to check with us whether or not they have anything,” he told the outlet as he lamented the agonizing lack of progress on the investigation.

“Were angry. Anyone would be,” he said. “I just hope they come up with something sooner or later. I just want some justice for these kids.”

Maddie was raised by Laramie – whom she called father – and her mother, Karen Laramie, in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho.

“We love her and we miss her and it’s the hardest thing in the world to figure out how to live without her,” a tearful Laramie told the news outlet.

“That’s the hardest thing to imagine right now,” he added.

On Friday, Mogen’s friend Jake Schriger also broke his silence about her loss.


Here’s the latest coverage of the brutal murders of four college friends:


“She was the first person I spoke to every morning and the last person I spoke to before bed,” Schriger said at a vigil in Post Falls, Idaho. “She was the person I loved the most.”

Laramie told Fox News Digital that he was in touch with Schriger.

“He’s completely upset. He’s having trouble dealing with it too. Those two, they were really good together. They really clicked,” he said.

Maddie loved all things pink and glitter and loved rewatching the 1987 film “The Princess Bride,” Laramie told the outlet.

“Everyone just wanted to be near her,” he said. “She had the world at her fingertips and could have done whatever she wanted. We were just so proud of her.”
