HANCOCK COUNTY, INDIANA: Bryan Kohberger, the criminology student charged with the murders of four University of Idaho students Ethan Chapin, 20, Xana Kernodle, 20, Madison Mogen, 21, and Kaylee Goncalves, 21, was stopped twice in Indiana while on a cross-country road trip with his father to the family's home in Pennsylvania. The stops for traffic violations in Indiana happened eight days after police started searching for the white Hyundai Elantra on December 8, 2022.
According to ABC, the body camera footage shows two males inside the car. One of them was identified as the suspect and the other man was the suspect's father. As per police, at around 10.41 am local time on December 15, an officer stopped a white Hyundai Elantra and gave a verbal warning for following another vehicle too closely. WRTV reported that after being stopped by police, the same car was pulled over by an Indiana State Police officer for the same violation.

The officer discovered they had been stopped minutes before by police. He released the men with a verbal warning that can be heard in the body-cam footage. The police can be heard saying, as stated by WRTV, "I’m not going to give you guys another ticket or warning if you just got stopped. just make sure you give yourself plenty of room, okay? it's all about how fast you're going."
Indiana State Police said in a statement, as quoted by Fox News, "At the time of this stop, there was no information available on a suspect for the crime in Idaho, to include identifying information or any specific information related to the license plate state or number of the white Hyundai Elantra which was being reported in the media to have been seen in or around where the crime occurred."
Four counts of first-degree murder
Bryan, who graduated from DeSales University in Pennsylvania in May 2022 with a master of arts in criminal justice and is a PhD student in the Department of Criminal Justice and Criminology at Washington State University, was arrested by the FBI and Pennsylvania State Police, arraigned by a Monroe County judge. He faces four counts of first-degree murder for the brutal stabbings of four students, as previously reported. At a court hearing on Tuesday, December 3, Kohberger waived extradition as he agreed to be extradited from Pennsylvania to Idaho in his first court hearing.
