OMG! Did you see the news? Ash­lin Couch, who used to live with the four Uni­ver­si­ty of Ida­ho stu­dents mur­dered last year, just opened up about the chill­ing final text she sent her friend.

“Are you okay?” Couch texted Madi­son Mogen after a news alert about a homi­cide on THEIR OLD STREET. This mes­sage, sent in the dark after a scary alert, would for­ev­er go unan­swered. Mogen, along with Kaylee Goncalves, Xana Kern­odle, and Ethan Chapin, were already gone. Stabbed to death in the house they all once called home.

This was­n’t just any house. Couch lived there with Mogen and Goncalves until she grad­u­at­ed. The house on King Road held so many mem­o­ries. Now, it held a hor­ri­fy­ing truth.

“I just knew some­thing was wrong,” Couch said, tears welling up. The real­iza­tion that the mur­ders hap­pened where she used to sleep was ter­ri­fy­ing. What if the killer was watch­ing them EVEN THEN?

The fear was crip­pling. Walk­ing to her car at night felt impos­si­ble. This trau­ma sparked a fire in Couch. She start­ed the Made with Kind­ness Foun­da­tion to teach stu­dents how to stay safe online and in real life. #Girl­Boss

But the loss is always there. “I just wish I could say good­bye,” Couch said, long­ing for one last hug with Mogen. This sto­ry is heart­break­ing, but Couch’s strength is inspir­ing. She’s turn­ing tragedy into a mis­sion to keep oth­ers safe.
