MOSCOW, IDAHO: Idaho murder suspect Bryan Kohberger’s neighbor who lived downstairs said the suspect "never slept," adding that he seemed too weak to commit murder. The neighbor, who wished not to be named, recalled how Kohberger mostly kept to himself. However, he could always be heard at odd hours.
“He’s normally a very late night person, going to the bathroom and vacuuming at 1 or 12 in the morning,” Kohberger's neighbor said, according to New York Post. “I have kids, so sometimes I thought of speaking to him or complaining, but never did. It seemed like he never slept because he was always doing something all night.”
The neighbor and her husband were completely shocked when Kohberger was named as the suspect in the Idaho murders. “I don’t know how he could’ve killed people because he doesn’t look that tough,” she said. “We are all PhD students here so it takes a lot of hard work and smarts to get to this point. You don’t think someone like that could do something like this.”
Kohberger moved to the house in August, she recalled. “At first he moved in by himself and we thought his family would come later, but he lived there alone,” she recalled. She said she had once seen someone who appeared to be a young female student get out of the suspect's car. They parted ways and went to their own apartments.
The neighbor, who is also a graduate, and Kohberger would say hello now and then as they passed each other. She said she once heard him bring a woman home. She did not see the woman, but heard the two talking as the walls are thin.
Kohberger, 28, 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 reportedly said he was shocked at being arrested and was planning to deny the murders.
Kohberger has been accused of stabbing four University of Idaho students to death, namely, Kaylee Goncalves, 21, Madison Mogen, 21, Xana Kernodle, 20, and Ethan Chapin, 20, in an off-campus three-story rented home in the early hours of November 13. Authorities said that the gory scene where the students were killed was the “worst they’ve ever seen." Kohberger was nabbed in Albrightsville, Pennsylvania, on Friday, December 30.
Kohberger was reportedly charged with four counts of murder in the first degree as well as felony burglary in connection with the deaths of the four students. 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 and is said to have lived just minutes from the scene of the crime.
