MOSCOW, IDAHO: Bryan Kohberger, 28, and his father, Michael Khoberger, were pulled over by the police twice as the duo made a 2,500-mile cross-country trip from Washington to Pennsylvania. The 28-year-old drove from his student accommodation in Washington to his home in Pennsylvania to celebrate the holidays with family.
According to Daily Mail, Jason LaBar, the suspect's lawyer, claims that his father flew from Pennsylvania to Washington to meet his son before Christmas. Meanwhile, Bryan was arrested on Saturday, December 31, for killing four University of Idaho students, Kaylee Goncalves, 21, Xana Kernodle, 20, Madison Mogen, 21, and Ethan Chapin, 20, on November 13.
Meanwhile, LaBar claims that Bryan has been traveling around on his Elantra, which the police have searched for weeks. He also claimed that the father-son duo was pulled over twice in Indiana, once for speeding and the other for following a car. Some witnesses claimed they saw him and his father getting repairs for the car on December 16. LaBar said the duo arrived at the family home in Albrightsville on December 17. The police later caught the vehicle from his parent's home. The lawyer also added that Bryan is "shocked after the charges", claiming that he would waive his extradition at a hearing in January. The police, however, are yet to recognize the motive behind this killing. LaBar also claimed to NPR, "Mr. Kohberger has been accused of very serious crimes, but the American justice system cloaks him in a veil of innocence," LaBar said in a statement. "He should be presumed innocent until proven otherwise — not tried in the court of public opinion."
In a recent statement, Bryan's family stated, "First and foremost, we care deeply for the four families who have lost their precious children. There are no words that can adequately express the sadness we feel, and we pray each day for them. We will continue to let the legal process unfold and as a family we will love and support our son and brother." We have fully cooperated with law enforcement agencies in an attempt to seek the truth and promote his presumption of innocence rather than judge unknown facts and make erroneous assumptions. We respect privacy in this matter as our family and the families suffering a loss can move forward through the legal process," reported People. Meanwhile, Bryan is a PhD student at Washington State University in Pullman, Washington, in the Department of Criminal Justice and Criminology. The university is eight miles away from the 1122 King Road residence in Moscow, Idaho, where the four students were killed.
