MOSCOW, IDAHO: Monroe County officials have now revealed more details regarding the arrest of Bryan Kohberger, 28, who is considered a suspect in the Idaho murders. An unsealed search warrant has now revealed minute details of the arrest of the suspect. 


"Mr Kohberger, as with any other criminal defendant, is presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law, so that remains the case. But certainly, for the investigation and the interest of the investigators in building the casing layer by layer, that was a significant find," said Monroe County First Assistant Michael Mancuso.

What are the new details revealed about Bryan Kohberger's arrest? 

The search warrant explains Kohberger was under police observation for weeks before the arrest. He has been arrested in the quadruple murders of Kaylee Goncalves, 21, Madison Mogen, 21, Ethan Chapin, 20, and Xana Kernodle, 20. Authorities revealed that they raided the 28-year-old's family home within Indian Mountain Lake Estates in Chestnuthill Township on December 30 before 1:30 am.


The warrant shows he had on him at the time:



A LARGE T-SHIRT (Arizona Jean Co.)

A LARGE BLACK SWEATSHIRT (Washington State Cougars)



BLACK SHORTS (Under Armour)

BLACK BOXERS (Under Armour)


"Mr Kohberger was found awake in the kitchen area dressed in shorts and a shirt a wearing latex medical type gloves and apparently was taking his personal trash and putting it into a separate zip lock baggies. A trash pull that was done days before recovered DNA profiles but not from him, only from his family members," said Mancuso.

The official also added, "It could very explain some of the other aspects of the case from Idaho, some of the lengths that a person would go to to avoid having their DNA left behind when they know or should’ve known that there was an investigation underway."

He then added, "I would be keen on the shoes, the size of the shoes, comparison to any show impressions that might have been recovered at the scene that sort of thing. But we’re told the cheek swab is key. Something that they could compare to the DNA of I believe the snap button for the sheath of the knife." Search warrants related to Kohberger’s car and family’s home will be released tomorrow morning, informed the officials, as per BRC 13. 


'Definitely sounds like OCD to me'

The Internet reacted to the new update. A user said, "As someone who has struggled with OCD since childhood, it sounds to me like he is pretty severely OCD. I can list off a catalog of my own behaviors that would look not just weird, but probably downright suspicious to anyone who didn’t understand the thought process. I’ve thought that this was an issue with him since hearing what his relative said about him being vegan and not wanting to use any cookery in which meat had ever been cooked. I know plenty of hardcore vegans, and was a strict vegetarian for about 20 years; and that’s not a vegan thing, it’s an OCD thing." 



Further, the person said, "I don’t quite understand the theory here: do people think he held onto incriminating evidence for more than a month, loaded it into his car and drove it from one side of the country to the other, and then effectively pre-packaged it for whoever might be looking for it? “Hey, cops, I did you a favor and sorted all the evidence into baggies for you to make your job easier. Merry Christmas!” This seems much more like irrational compulsion to me."  "I agree. Definitely sounds like OCD to me," added another.

"It is until it becomes obsessive. OCD hierarchy is rated by how much it interferes with your life. That being said, I don't construe it, even remotely, as evidence of guilt," claimed another. 





Another user said, "This is a sign of mental instability, imo. I wish I could share my original profile I did of him months ago without seeming like a know it all. Lol! This is exactly the kind of wild ocd s**t I would expect this person to do." "Wouldn't the baggies be on the list of what was seized in the search of the house? Maybe it's the weed. Or the ID cards in a glove in a box," stated one user.

"This just sounds like mental illness tbh... I'm not trying to make an armchair diagnosis or anything, but this is really abnormal. Also we don't know that he's being framed," wrote another user. "I think it is normal and responsible to try to recycle correctly," opined a user.
