MOSCOW, IDAHO: The investigation team of Idaho murders is yet to answer an essential question as the investigation progresses. The significant confusion here is why Dylan Mortensen, the surviving roommate, delayed informing police about the murders and why Bryan Kohberger chose the four slain Idaho students as his victims. 

According to Daily Mail, police have submitted the file containing important information about the crime. He was also denied bail on January 5 during a brief court appearance in Moscow. The suspect was arrested on December 30 concerning the killing of Kaylee Goncalves, 21, Madison Mogen, 21, Ethan Chapin, 20, and Xana Kernodle, 20. Meanwhile, the Internet is still confused about why Dylan took almost six hours of time to report to the police and why didn't she react immediately.

Dylan is currently under pressure to answer why she took six hours to report the issue to 911 and inform the police. She lived through the attack with Bethany Funke. According to her, the suspect was dressed in all black with a mask covering his face and heard one of her housemates say, "there's someone here." The suspect said, "it's ok, I'm here to help you." The investigation team has confirmed that a 911 call was made by one of the surviving roommates at 11.58 am, who requested help for an unconscious person. One of the reasons that people claim is that she may have been "frozen by fear." Mortensen claims that she was awoken at around 4 am when she could hear what sounded like victim Kaylee "playing with her dog" in a third-floor bedroom. Later, she felt the sound of Xana crying. Meanwhile, she encountered a tall figure with a mask on and full black attire. Though the killer came towards her, she was spared. 

Why were these four students targeted?  

There are minute details regarding how Kohberger killed the four victims. However, it still remains a matter of doubt why these four students were targeted. Officials have yet to confirm how he became aware of the students as he has been tracked all over this place. Another question that is yet to receive an answer is why he did not kill the dog of Kaylee whom she shared with her ex-boyfriend – Jack DuCoeur called Murphy. He has survived the attack and is with Jack. Another concern regarding the case is if police were concerned about spooking alleged killer Kohberger into fleeing after linking a vehicle.

Meanwhile, one of the major concerns of the case is revolving the murder weapon and if the killer did the crime alone. Police have been finding it hard to spot the murder weapon. This even led the police to search for the weapon in the Inland North Waste and extensively checked garbage vehicles to seize the weapon, however, it was unsuccessful. When it comes to the killer having an accomplice to help during the murder, police chief James Fry stated, "We have an individual in custody who committed these horrible crimes," and did not rule out the possibility of having multiple killers.

'Why didn’t anyone call police until noon the next day?'

Netizens had various doubts and concerns regarding why Dylan took six hours to call 911. A user asked on Reddit, "The probable cause affidavit says the roommate saw the killer at 4am and then locked herself in her bedroom….Why didn’t anyone call police until Noon the next day? I’m baffled." Another stated, "So she opens her door multiple times because of suspicious noises - including her roommate crying - finally peeks through the door and sees a MASKED MAN (presumably at this point covered in blood) fleeing and she…..locks her door and goes to sleep?. I’m just trying to understand. How does one do that?."

A user added, "Right? Wouldn’t you at least try texting your roommates is you weee afraid to speak? I dunno. Something. I mean..she’s gotta live with it so I’m sure it’s worse for her than us but, she’s gotta know, we got questions!." Another claimed, "So Dylan seen the killer and locks herself in her room and passes out, and Bethany calls the police. Hmm still seems a little crazy that someone could see a killer and then be so wasted passes out 😱 instead of being able to call police."

A user explained, "She didn’t realize what had happened. She was shocked to see the guy leave but it never crossed her mind that there was a bloodbath. Guy w face covering at night in cold climate is not that weird. High traffic house one learns to disregard others’ business maybe." "I wouldn’t assume bloodbath, but I would check on my roommates. Period. She was alarmed enough to keep opening her door and keep looking out. She was alarmed enough to immediately lock her door and hide in her room. But she wasn’t alarmed enough to…check on her roommates?I cannot fathom this. Cannot," read a comment.

Another wondered, "I’ve been trying to make sense of this. Is it possible she thought it was the police about underage drinking and was scared to get found drunk? Or thought it was a burglar but was scared to call the police being drunk and underage? Is it possible she has a history of weird dreams and in the moment thought she was dreaming it? This is all I could come up with."
