“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 He became more withdrawn,” Dominique Clark, who attended elementary and high school with Kohberger, told New York Post

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.

It has been reported that authorities 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.
