MOSCOW, IDAHO: Idaho murder suspect Bryan Kohberger’s white Hyundai Elantra was most likely captured on a bombshell video when it was seen driving near the crime scene, just hours after the brutal and fatal student stabbings on November 13. Earlier this week, the probable cause affidavit filed in court over the murders noted that the 28-year-old Washington University student reportedly returned to the victims' six-bedroom rental home on King Road at least four times after the heinous act.
Now, new footage of a white sedan driving near the home the day after may correspond with that theory. The vehicle in question matches the description of Kohberger's Elantra, but it's hard to tell the make and model of the car in the camera footage.
The rare video, published by Fox News Digital, captured a brief sighting of a white car crossing a green area and heading up Nez Perce Drive. The field separates Taylor Avenue, the cross street with King Road, and the campus' Greek Row, where Chapin lived at the Sigma Chi fraternity house. In the video, the white vehicle can be seen at the top of the frame as two officers talk on the near side of the field around 2:08 PM on November 14.
This video came out days after the police's probable cause affidavit revealed that Kohberger’s Elantra was captured on video speeding away from the area at around 4.20am on November 14. The same vehicle was also seen leaving the Washington University campus in the direction of the students' house just prior to 3.00 am on the night of the murders. It allegedly returned to campus just before 5.30 am on the same morning.
The cops said there are generally 'a very limited number of vehicles' that enter and exit this residential neighborhood in the early hours of the morning. But the white sedan was one of them that was spotted moving past the house 'at high speed' four times. Kohberger's phone was also pinged in the area of the students' Moscow house around 9 am on November 13 - just five hours after he allegedly stabbed them to death.
"Further review indicated that the 8458 Phone utilized cellular resources on November 13, 2022, that are consistent with the 8458 Phone leaving the area of the Kohberger Residence at approximately 9 am and traveling to Moscow, ID," the affidavit states. "Specifically, the 8458 Phone utilized cellular resources that would provide coverage to the King Road Residence between 9.12 am and 9.21 am."
Kohberger, who is currently being held in Latah County Jail, is now facing four counts of first-degree murder and felony burglary charges in connection to the murders of 21-year-old students Madison Mogen and Kaylee Goncalves, and 20-year-olds Xana Kernodle and Ethan Chapin. He is expected to be in court for a status hearing on January 12.
