Who is Bryan Christopher Kohberger?
Arrest records obtained by DailyMail.com show that Bryan Christopher Kohberger, 28, was arrested after a SWAT team raid to Scranton, Pennsylvania around 3 a.m. today.
According to a law enforcement source, Bryan Christopher Kohberger, 28, was captured by local police and the FBI in Scranton, Pennsylvania, around 3 a.m. on Friday.
The Moscow Police Department and the Latah County Prosecutor’s Office have charged Kohberger with first-degree murder in connection with the deaths of Ethan Chapin, 20, Xana Kernodle, 20, Kaylee Goncalves, 21, and Madison Mogen, 21. Kohberger is being jailed for extradition in Monroe County Court.
According to the college’s website, the suspect is a graduate student at Washington State University in Pullman, Washington. The four students’ rented home where they were fatally murdered is 15 minutes drive from Pullman.
In May 2022, he graduated from DeSales University of Pennsylvania with a master’s degree in criminal justice.
As part of his research, Kohberger posted a call for help on social media in his study, which examined how “emotions and psychological traits influence decision-making when committing a crime.”
Investigators were first confused by the strange deaths, which left the little college town of 25,000 deeply shaken.
The coroner and police believe that the four students were assaulted in their sleep with a huge fixed-bladed knife between 3 and 4 in the morning and were each stabbed many times in the body.
On the bottom level, two female roommates who were still alive appeared to have slept during the horrific attack.
According to officials, the roommates assumed one of the victims on the second floor had passed out when they called friends to the residence shortly before noon.
At 11:58 a.m., a 911 call from one of the living roommates reporting an unconscious individual was answered by the police. The four murdered victims were discovered on the second and third floors by the responding cops.
Timeline of the incident
A complete timeline of the victims’ movements in the hours leading up to and following the massacre was published by the Moscow Police Department.
Around 1:40 a.m., Goncalves and Mogen walked to the Corner Club, a pub located downtown, and then they placed an order for food from the Grub Truck.
According to authorities, the woman took a “third-party” driver and arrived home around 1:56 a.m.
At 1:45 a.m., Kernodle and her boyfriend Chapin left for a party at the campus Sigma Chi house and arrived back at their King Road residence.
The attacks were “targeted,” according to the Moscow Police Department, which is collaborating with the FBI and the Idaho State Police.
Investigators concentrated on finding the occupant(s) of a white 2011–2013 Hyundai Elantra that was seen driving close to the house during the killings.
The Sigma Chi fraternity included freshmen from Mount Vernon, Washington, and Chapin. According to the school, he was majoring in recreation, sport, and tourist management.
Police have identified Maddie Mogen, Ethan Chapin, Xana Kernodle, and Kaylee Goncalves as the four victims in an alleged quadruple homicide at the University of Idaho.
