Following the reports, a Twitter user claimed that Kohberger escaped authorities’ radar by registering his vehicle in Washington. “5 days after the murders Bryan Kohberger registered his car in WA and it’s not because he’s a law-abiding citizen. It bought him time in case cameras picked up his PA plate # in the area of 1122,” the user stated, adding a screenshot of an official document that showed he registered his car on November 18, 2022.

Authorities previously revealed that they sifted through at least 22,000 registered white Hyundai Elantras before reaching Kohberger. According to law enforcement sources, he traveled across the country in the said vehicle and landed at his parent's residence in Pennsylvania around Christmas. At some point during his journey from Idaho to the east, authorities started tracking him. “Sometimes right before Christmas we were zeroing in on him being in or going to Pennsylvania,” sources told CNN. The outlet also reported that officers from the university's Pullman campus helped the police carry out search warrants at the suspect's home and workplace.

Kohberger has reportedly been charged with four counts of murder in the first degree as well as felony burglary in connection with the deaths of the four Idaho students. As of now, investigators have not publicly confirmed a motive for the murders. Monroe County Chief Public Defender Jason LaBar reportedly stated that Kohberger will agree to forego his extradition hearing, scheduled for Tuesday, January 3, to be extradited to Idaho.
