MOSCOW, IDAHO: Bryan Christopher Kohberger, the suspect in the killings of four University of Idaho students, has been taken into custody more than a month after the murder that occurred on November 13. The 28-year-old is being detained on suspicion of killing Ethan Chapin, Xana Kernodle, Madison Mogen, and Kaylee Goncalves.

As a result of the accused's arrest, the Internet is currently in a state of pandemonium due to the downpour of new theories about the case's suspect from online sleuths across social media.  Recently, a Reddit user allegedly claimed that the arrested suspect, Khoberger, had a Reddit account and posted various possibilities around the case.

The most baffling one is that Khoberger supposedly tried to defend Jack Showalter, nickednamed the "hoodie guy," by web sleuths who considered him to be a primary suspect. He was considered suspicious since he was seen at the food truck at the time when Goncalves and Mogen were there and seemingly followed them when they left. The user shared several screenshots of the Reddit thread on Twitter. The user wrote, "#BryanKohberger is actually dumb as a rock, and his ego is his downfall." One of the pictures supposedly show Khoberger's post exonerating Jack Showalter by saying, "Agreed! JS is innocent."

Online rumors had earlier suggested that the murderer might be Showalter as he had recently been kicked out of his fraternity and that he might own the same kind of knife used to murder the four University of Idaho students. The Daily Mail earlier reported that the 'hoodie guy' didn't seem to be dangerous or hold any ill-will towards the victims. An eyewitness Joe Vidot stated, "I saw the hoodie guy show up with the two of them. The vibe I got from him is that he's super nice." The Idaho police too had earlier acknowledged that the man in the video had been ruled out as a suspect.
