MOSCOW, IDAHO: Bryan Christopher Kohberger, 28, has been charged with the brutal murders of four University of Idaho students. Kohberger was arrested on December 30 at his parents' home in eastern Pennsylvania, more than 2,500 miles away from the town of Moscow. Since Kohberger's arrest, many of his ex-classmates have been coming forward with all the information they have on Kohberger. Recently, one of his school friends came forward on Reddit and claimed that Kohberger was 'potentially on the Autism spectrum' and that he had 'anger issues'. The classmate also mentioned that Kohberger has lost almost 100 lbs since high school.

Kohberger, a PhD student in the Department of Criminal Justice and Criminology at the neighboring Washington State University, is now facing four counts of first-degree murder and felony burglary charges. Kohberger is currently being held in Latah County Jail and is expected to be in court for a status hearing on January 12.

One of Kohberger's 'short-term friends' from Pleasant Valley Intermediate School, wrote on Reddit, "I knew Bryan at Pleasant Valley Intermediate School. He was overweight when we were short-term friends. He was bullied a lot and was socially awkward. He also had anger issues. I definitely got the impression that he is potentially on the Autism spectrum (I am an Aspie myself so I know it when I see it)."

The classmate further explained how their friendship ended and how Kohberger became 'more aggressive' after losing weight, "Our friendship ended after he got in a physical fight with me. He lost weight going into high school (had to be close to 100 lbs of weight loss), hence why he looks older. He frequented a boxing gym during his weight loss. Friends from high school say he became more aggressive after losing weight. He had trouble making friends when we were acquainted. His mom is/was a school staff member. She was VERY sweet. I really hope she's innocent in all this as she was very nice to me and many other PV students. Feel free to ask me any questions, but I don't know much beyond this."

"I did want to add that he did exhibit symptoms of bipolar disorder, so keep an eye out if anything comes out about that. I am very certain he has some sort of mental illness.", added the classmate.

The classmate then went on to answer the users' questions, when asked, "How often did he get into fights?", the classmate replied, "Two or three times. Once with myself, again in high school, and an unverified time later in high school."

Another user asked, "you mentioned him being potentially on the Autism spectrum-besides being awkward socially what else makes you think this?", the classmate said, "Mainly his demeanor, his lack of eye contact, lack of displayed emotions except for extremes."
