MOSCOW, IDAHO: The murders of four University of Idaho students took place two months ago, and Bryan Christopher Kohberger has been apprehended as a suspect. Kohberger is currently on trial in Idaho after being extradited from Pennsylvania for the alleged murders of Xana Kernodle, Ethan Chapin, Madison Mogen, and Kaylee Goncalves on November 13.
Since the murders, several online sleuths have combed through the victims, suspect, and their families' publicly accessible information, including their social media profiles on various websites. Recently, a Twitter user unveiled a chilling post from a Facebook group, where a Facebook user, claiming to be Kohberger's relative, has allegedly tried to prove his innocence and claimed the Idaho murders suspect was framed by his "University security guard".
The Twitter user shared these claims and wrote, "Say what#BryanKohberger family member posting on socials." Along with the tweet, the user shared a screenshot of the text that reportedly Kohbeger's family member wrote anonymously on Facebook. The screenshot reads, "I'm posting anonymously because Bryan is my family and you people in this group act like vultures and rabid raccoons. Bryan is innocent and you will see he has been framed by his drug partner friend the security guard from the University."
The FB user claimed that Bryan was doing "drugs" in the parking lot; as the screenshot further reads, "They were doing drugs together in the parking lot as they had done numerous times but when security guard started acting like a peeping Tom outside the girls window Bryan left security guard & drove back to his apartment."
The screenshot added, "The reason the phone was off is because the battery was flat and security guard was using the car charger. Bryan put his phone on charge when he left the parkina lot and he switched it back on when he was near to his apartment because that's how long it took to get a charge going."
The screenshot further reads, "Bryans knife was in the car and security guard was holding it because he has used it to "chop" the cocaine lines. Yes I said cocaine because Bryan stopped Heroin years back and substituted the drug with cocaine. "
The screenshot went on, "He has tried so hard to stop everything but he's an addict and he has bad migraines so the cocaine actually helps him. He had no idea security guard was going to do what he did and he just wanted to teach security guard a lesson by leaving him behind. Bryan actually feels terrible that he left this maniac behind but it's not his fault."
The alleged Kohberger's family member threatened that Kohberger and his father would sue people if they spread any rumour, as per the screenshot. "You, people, need to stop with these singing videos and funny pictures of Bryan and my dad or we will sue you for everything you have. All of you just get a life and stop playing Facebook detectives because you are just a bunch or bored losers that have no morals," the screenshot added.

Since the murders, numerous internet detectives have made absurd claims without any supporting data. Despite this, the Moscow Police Department has made an effort to maintain the case's strictest level of confidentiality and has only given accurate information. Later, key information about the case was made available to the public through sealed affidavits.
Earlier Kohberger's family released a statement through the public defender that read, "First and foremost we care deeply for the four families who have lost their precious children. There are no words that can adequately express the sadness we feel, and we pray each day for them. We will continue to let the legal process unfold and as a family, we will love and support our son and brother. We have fully cooperated with law enforcement agencies in an attempt to seek the truth and promote his presumption of innocence rather than judge unknown facts and make erroneous assumptions. We respect privacy in this matter as our family and the families suffering a loss can move forward through the legal process," as reported by CBS news.
How was Kohberger arrested and the charges against him ?
Kohberger was charged with four counts of murder and one count of felony burglary in connection with the four murders. Kohberger, a 28-year-old PhD candidate in criminology at Washington State University, is the only one under investigation, according to MEAWW.
