Idaho murder suspect Bryan Kohberger appears in court for the first time

Friends and acquaintances begin to share details about Idaho murder suspect Bryan Kohberger.

The 28-year-old graduate was reportedly quite quiet and had struggled with obesity and drug use in the past.

Recently released court papers provide further details of the image.

Sworn testimony reveals that Mr. Kohberger was linked to the murders of Kaylee Goncalves, Madison Mogen, Xana Kernodle and Ethan Chapin after his DNA was found on a knife sheath that the killer left at the crime scene.

Cell phone records also show that Mr Kohberger stalked the house at least 12 times in the run-up to the November 13 attack – and that he returned to the scene about five hours after the knife spree.

For the first time, it was revealed that one of the two surviving roommates heard his bloodcurdling last words to the victims: “It’s okay, I’ll help you.”

Dylan Mortensen told police she saw the intruder at the Moscow home at 4 a.m. but did not call 911 for another eight hours.

A lawyer for the Goncalves family told Fox News that Ms. Mortensen was “scared to death, and rightly so.”

Mr. Kohberger’s criminology colleagues, meanwhile, said Idaho statesman would have gone silent when the murders were brought up in the classroom.

Bryan Kohberger faces the death penalty

Kaylee Goncalves’ parents, Steve and Kristi Goncalves, spoke to NewsNation on Thursday night, just hours after they first came face to face with Bryan Kohberger, accused of murdering their daughter, in an Idaho court.

Mr Goncalves said justice for his daughter would mean the death penalty for the 28-year-old criminology PhD student, saying he “must pay” for what he allegedly did to Goncalves, Madison Mogen, Xana Kernodle and Ethan Chapin.

“If you want to play the part of a god, you will have to answer to him,” he said.

The distraught father said he would eventually “forgive” his daughter’s killer, but said a life sentence in prison was not enough for the alleged crimes.

Unanswered questions about the Idaho murders

For nearly eight weeks, the families of the four slain University of Idaho students waited in agony for answers to the unspeakable killings.

Hope for clarity finally came last week with the arrest of Bryan Kohberger, a 28-year-old criminal justice doctoral student at Washington State University. A few days later, an affidavit was made public outlining what prompted authorities to press charges against Mr. Kohberger, revealing horrific details of the November 13 murders of Kaylee Goncalves, Madison Mogen, Xana Kernodle and Ethan Chapin in a Moscow university town.

Among the revelations in the 18-page document is that Mr. Kohberger’s DNA was found on a knife sheath that the killer left at the crime scene. A brown leather Kabar knife sheath, bearing the symbol of the United States Marine Corps, was found on Mogen’s bed next to her mangled body.

Mr. Kohberger’s DNA was found on a vagina, and investigators were able to trace it to DNA found on garbage recovered from his family home in Albrightsville, Pennsylvania, the affidavit said.

Mr. Kohberger was also linked to the murders through his white Hyundai Elantra and cell phone records.

But with all the new information presented in the bomb document, even more questions have arisen. Here are.

How a criminology student became accused of murder

Bryan Christopher Kohberger was working as a part-time security officer in the Pleasant Valley School District, where his mother worked as a staff member, when her grandmother, who monitored the corridor, began to have trouble breathing and blacked out. Security guard Luis Fuentes, according to the Pocono Record, sent Mr. Kohberger to retrieve the school’s AED while fellow staff and emergency personnel tended to his associate.

The disaster was averted – but the incident continued to be the subject of the local newspaper in the small Pennsylvania town where Mr. Kohberger grew up with his parents, Michael and Maryann, and two sisters, Amanda and Melissa. This was one of the few times Bryan Kohberger’s name went viral – until he was arrested on December 30 for the murder of 20-year-old Ethan Chapin; Kaylee Goncalves, 21; Xana Kernodle, 20; and Madison Mogen, 21.

Speculation and rumors grew exponentially for nearly seven weeks prior to Mr. Kohberger’s arrest, as plotters and armchair detectives painted all kinds of pictures of the then-unknown student killer. But a tall, thin, bushy-browed doctoral student handcuffed by the police seemed to surprise everyone as he was timidly led around and stared dully at his portrait.

He knows mugshots. He spent years of his life studying them.

The Controversial DNA Tech That Helped Police Catch Bryan Kohberger

Police have used a new and controversial DNA analysis technique to help catch a suspect in the Idaho murder of Bryan Kohberger.

After finding the 28-year-old’s DNA on a knife sheath at the crime scene, officials turned to genetic genealogy, where investigators upload DNA to online databases and look for a match, using their findings to build a potential family tree and hunt down witnesses and suspects.

The practice, as reported by Vox, is not yet in widespread use and is supported by only two major genealogy sites.

However, the technique has been used to solve high-profile cases such as the Golden State killer case.

“I met him through some friends and they told me he was a bit weird and a bit socially awkward, I guess you could say, but he wasn’t a bad guy,” he added. “He needed a job, so I was working at a pizzeria at the time, and they were hiring, so I said, ‘Yeah, come and apply.’ And so he did, and he got the job. So I worked with him a bit, but he was quiet.
