MOSCOW, IDAHO: The shocking probable cause affidavits for the murders of four University of Idaho students have provided new insight into the suspect, Bryan Christopher Kohberger’s alleged escape route from the horrific crime scene. Investigators allege Kohberger attacked the four sleeping students with a knife in the early hours of November 13 and drove home to an apartment near Washington State University, which is roughly 10 miles away from the victims' King Road residence.
The 28-year-old suspect was arrested on Friday, December 30, 2022, in Pennsylvania for the murders of Kaylee Gonvalves, 21, Ethan Chapin, 20, Xana Kernodle, 20, and Madison Mogen, 21. The phone records and video evidence gathered by the authorities show Kohberger's alleged escape route, which detoured to the south, tacked on more than four extra miles between Moscow, Idaho, and Pullman, Washington, according to Fox News.
In a sworn statement released on Thursday, January 5, Moscow Police CPL. Brett Payne stated that Kohberger’s white Hyundai Elantra, which they found at his parent’s Poconos house, began appearing on surveillance cameras around the area, roughly an hour after the heinous crime. The vehicle was first captured on 1300 Johnson Road in Pullman, which is connected to Moscow by the rural West Palouse River Drive.
"The white sedan was then observed turning north on Bishop Boulevard and northwest on SR 270," Payne wrote. "At approximately 5.27 am, the white Elantra was observed on cameras traveling northbound on Stadium Way at Nevada Street, Stadium Way at Grimes Way, Stadium Drive at Wilson Road, and Stadium Way at Cougar Way." He also revealed that Kohberger returned to the crime scene just a few hours after the crime.
A business co-owner at the Johnson Road expressed her "thrill" at how the seven security cameras on her building assisted police in apprehending a homicide suspect. "This is the first time we've heard any of this," she told Fox News Digital. "We had no idea." She said the police asked for her video, and she turned it over without knowing if it showed anything important.
FBI got Indiana Police to pull over Bryan Kohberger's car to capture video of his hands
Earlier, MEAWW had reported on how an FBI surveillance team directed Indiana police to pull over Bryan Kohberger and his father on December 15 after tracking them on their cross-country road trip from Washington State to Pennsylvania.
The 28-year-old Idaho quadruple murder suspect and his father, Michael Kohberger were pulled over twice within a nine-minute timespan on I-70 while making a 2,500-mile cross-country trip. A law enforcement source told Fox News that the FBI surveillance team had asked police to stop the Kohbergers to gather video images of Bryan as well as his hands to build a concrete case for making an arrest.
Kohberger is currently being held without bail at the Latah County Jail on four counts of murder and a felony burglary charge for allegedly entering a home with the intent to kill. He arrived in Idaho on Wednesday, December 5, after agreeing to his extradition during his first appearance in Pennsylvania court.
