As you likely know by now, there has finally been an arrest in the quadruple murder case, and we’re now learning more details about the 28-year-old college man who is suspected of doing the killings. Bryan Kohberger graduated back in 2020. He earned a bachelor’s degree, and then in 2022, he completed his “graduate studies for the Master of Arts in criminal justice program.” There’s been talk that he had a Ph.D. in Criminology, but these latest reports don’t mention that.
We’re also told that the suspect graduated from Northampton Community College with an associate degree in arts and psychology in 2018, a spokesman for the school in Pennsylvania said.
This was one smart guy – reminds me of Ted Bundy. That’s probably why the cops were so tight-lipped. Although, the case didn’t bust open until they got the tip about the white car speeding away from the scene of the crime.
But we’re also learning some new details… looks like this guys DNA is all over the crime scene.
CNN reported that a graduate student at Washington State University was arrested Friday in his home state of Pennsylvania in last month’s killings of four University of Idaho students in their off-campus home – a brutal attack that rattled a small college town, authorities said.
A criminal complaint charging Bryan Kohberger, 28, with four counts of murder in the first degree, as well as felony burglary, was filed Thursday, Latah County Prosecutor Bill Thompson said in a news conference Friday afternoon in Idaho.
Authorities narrowed their focus to Kohberger after tracing his ownership of a white Hyundai Elantra seen in the area of the killings, according to two law enforcement sources briefed on the investigation. Kohberger’s DNA has also been matched to genetic material recovered at the off-campus house where the students were stabbed to death, according to the sources.
Authorities learned the suspect had left the area and went to Pennsylvania, the sources said.
An FBI surveillance team from the Philadelphia field office had been tracking him for four days in the area where he was arrested, according to the sources.
While he was being watched, investigators from the Moscow Police Department, the Idaho State Police homicide bureau, and the FBI worked with prosecutors to develop sufficient probable cause to obtain the warrant. Once the arrest warrant was issued, the Pennsylvania State Police and the FBI made the arrest.
Moscow Police Department Chief James Fry said at the news conference an Elantra has been located, but investigators are still looking for the knife used in the killings. He didn’t reveal any details about the case, including when the suspect became the focus of the investigation or whether he knew the four students who were killed.
“These murders have shaken our community and no arrest will ever bring back these young students,” Fry said. “However, we do believe justice will be found through the criminal process.”
Fry said it was a very complex, extensive case.
“We developed a clear picture over time,” he said, “(but) be assured that the work is not done. This is just started.”
Authorities at the news conference asked the public to keep calling the tip line with information.
Sounds to me like they’ve got their murderer. Now, we just need to understand why. Was Bryan the “stalker” who Kaylee had mentioned?
