However, now let's dive into known about each "Brian," the suspect/ killer, that users have mentioned about.
Kohberger, 28, PhD student from the University of Washington, was arrested on December 30 during a raid on his family's home. He is accused of killing University of Idaho students, including Kaylee Goncalves, 21, Madison Mogen, 21, Xana Kernodle, 20, and Kernodle's boyfriend, Ethan Chapin, 20. As per reports, Kohberger allegedly breaking into the residence of four University of Idaho students, about 19 miles from his Washington apartment, and ambushing them at around 4 am on November 13.
Kohberger is charged with four counts of first-degree murder and one count of felony burglary. Kohberger was captured on December 30 at his parents' house in eastern Pennsylvania, more than 2,000 miles from Moscow. He was transferred to the Latah County Jail late on January 4 after being extradited to Idaho.
Walshe, the husband of a Massachusetts woman Ana, who has been missing since New Year's Day, has been charged with her murder, the Norfolk County District Attorney's office reported. The search warrant was issued more than two weeks after the 39-year-old mother of three young boys. There is no sign of her remains, as reported by MEAWW.
Walshe is already incarcerated after being accused of deceiving police last week during their investigation into his wife's disappearance. Walshe, who has pleaded not guilty and is being held on a $500,000 bail, broke the terms of his bail after being found guilty of federal fraud by lying to the police.
Gabby Petito's fiance, Brian Laundrie, died from a self-inflicted gunshot after being listed as a "person of interest" in her disappearance. In July 2021, Laundrie and Petito were on a cross-country road trip. On August 25, 2021, Petito had told her family she would be visiting a national park in Wyoming but never showed up. After briefly making a safe return home, Laundrie hired a lawyer but refused to help the police.
Later, Laundrie took his own life. His body was discovered with a note claiming responsibility for the death of Petito, as reported by The Sun. During a press conference, authorities confirmed discovering remains identical to Petito's. Strangulation was identified as the cause of death. Decomposition, according to Teton County Coroner Dr Brent Blue, further indicated that she had died three to four weeks before her body was discovered, as per reports.
