Propped against the window in the bedroom where she died, University of Idaho murder victim Madison Mogen's favorite pink cowboy boots are pictured – a poignant reminder of an owner who will never wear them again.

The photo was taken by DailyMail.com 10 days after Madison, 21, was brutally stabbed to death while asleep at home by a killer whose identity remains a mystery and whose motive has left cops stumped.

The 21-year-old died alongside best friend Kaylee Goncalves, 21, and couple Xana Kernodle and Ethan Chapin, both 20, in the early morning attack on November 13 that resulted in a scene so bloody, police told DailyMail.com it was 'the worst we've ever seen'.

All three girls lived in the house, along with roommates Dylan Mortensen and Bethany Funke, 19, who both miraculously survived.

Like her roommates, Madison had enjoyed college life and posted photos of herself wearing the pink boots at a bar on her social media on August 13 with the caption: 'How did I get so lucky?'

Her heartbroken grandfather Michael Mogen, 71, told DailyMail.com she had loved college and had been 'a model student'.

He said: 'Everybody loved Maddie. There's no conflict I've ever heard of. Since she's been at college and involved in her sorority life, you can see from the pictures it was such a joyful experience for her.

'She was our first grandchild She was just a delightful little girl. I've never seen her even cause any trouble. She was curious, a model student all the way through.'

Michael added: 'She got so much attention because she was our first grandchild. We'd see her mainly at holidays and birthday as she got older and got her own social life.

'We'd see her five or six times a year when she went off to college. She's a beautiful girl who was always a delight.'

Although her parents split when she was a small child, Madison appears to have had a happy childhood and was close to her father Ben – even after he was handed three-years-probation for drug possession in April 2021.

On his Facebook page, photo after photo shows dad and daughter together while he also flagged up a vigil that took place in Coeur D'Alene last week.

Meanwhile, in a tearful interview with DailyMail.com, Scott Laramie, 52, who is married to Madison's mother Cheryl, 45, paid tribute to his stepdaughter, saying: 'She was just an amazing girl. They were all great kids. She was just doing her thing.

Laramie added: 'Just try to express the love that I have for my daughter.'
