MOSCOW, IDAHO: Idaho murder suspect Bryan Kohberger could not take 'no' for an answer from women he was interested in, a former classmate of the 28-year-old claimed. Kohberger was arrested more than 2,000 miles away from where the murders took place and agreed to be extradited to Idaho from Pennsylvania. His lawyer has said he is shocked at being arrested and is planning to deny the murders.

Kohberger has been accused of stabbing to death University of Idaho students Kaylee Goncalves, 21, Madison Mogen, 21, Xana Kernodle, 20, and Ethan Chapin, 20, in an off-campus three-story rented home in the early morning hours of November 13. Authorities have said that the gory scene where the students were killed was the “worst they’ve ever seen." Kohberger, 28, was arrested in Albrightsville, Pennsylvania, on Friday, December 30.

“If he liked or was interested in a girl and she wasn’t, he didn’t understand why or just didn’t accept her saying no and move on and so he would have been labeled as a creep or something along those lines,” said Dominique Clark, who attended elementary and high school with Kohberger, according to New York Post. Clark is now a critical care nurse who lives in Breinigsville.

“He hung out with the people who were outcasts together. He tried to hang out with people who were smart,” she continued. “He just didn’t really fit in with anybody.”

Additionally, Clark said Kohberger became aggressive after undergoing a transformation by losing about 80 pounds before his senior year at Pleasant Valley High School in Brodheadsville. “I remember seeing him and thinking it was a new student. He was so heavy and he lost so much weight, he almost looked sickly or like it was an obsession. Around the same time, he became more aggressive and I think he became more of an outcast at that point. He became more withdrawn,” Clark said.

Authorities reportedly tracked Kohberger all the way to Pennsylvania, surveilling him for several days before eventually arresting him. Kohberger was charged with four counts of murder in the first degree, as well as felony burglary in connection with the deaths of the four students, according to Latah County Prosecutor Bill Thompson, CNN reported.

Investigators have not publicly confirmed a motive for the murders. The suspect is a PhD student in Washington State University’s Department of Criminal Justice and Criminology. He reportedly lived just minutes from the scene of the massacre.
