MOSCOW, IDAHO: Bryan Christopher Kohberger was apprehended as a suspect in the murders of four University of Idaho students that happened two months ago. Kohberger is on trial in Idaho after being extradited from Pennsylvania for the alleged November 13 murders of Xana Kernodle, Ethan Chapin, Madison Mogen, and Kaylee Goncalves.

The motive behind the killings of these four students is still unknown. However, the fact that Kohberger, the accused, was a PhD criminology student is just one of the many shocking revelations in this murder mystery case. However, a criminology professor has examined Kohbeger's traits and unveiled chilling details about the Idaho murders' suspect.

Who is Casey Jordan?

Recently, Dr Casey Jordan, an attorney and criminology professor at Western Connecticut University, disclosed that she was "disheartened but not at all surprised" after knowing that Kohberger was a PhD student in the department of criminal justice and criminology at Washington State University.

Jordan recalled her career and mentioned that she has "seen students like the Idaho suspect before," as per her article on Slate. She mentioned that during her 35-year tenure as a criminology professor, she has encountered 'odd students' who are "overly preoccupied with studying homicide." According to Jordan, these students seem very interested in homicide murders only and in "chillingly premeditated violence."

She further described the traits of such students and mentioned, "these students want to focus solely on the psychology of those rare mass, spree, and serial killers featured in James Patterson novels." Jordan further noted how these students think and stated these would-be profilers are as determined to understand a killer's thoughts as a "squirrel is determined to crack a nut."

Jordan went on to say that these students have unrestrained enthusiasm and vile narcissism, which contribute to their conviction that they are the world's foremost authorities on everything. These groupies' obsession with these bizarre criminals has a sinister undertone. Now Jordan wonders whether Kohberger used his "academic knowledge" in the planning process of the barbaric Idaho murders.

Since the suspect's arrest, there has been a downpour of revelations by the investigators and detectives about the Kohberger. However, many questions are still needed to be answered by the police involved in the murder case, especially regarding sealed affidavit of Kohberger's apartment. The Moscow Police Department has made every effort to keep the case as private as possible and has only provided accurate information. Key details about the case were later made public through affidavits.

About Kohberger's arrest and trial 

Kohberger was charged with four counts of first-degree murder and one count of felony burglary in relation to the Idaho homicides. Kohberger, a 28-year-old PhD candidate in criminology at Washington State University, is the only person being looked into. He was taken into custody on December 30, 2022, at his parents' house in eastern Pennsylvania, which is more than 2,000 miles from Moscow, as per reports.

Kohberger informed the judge upon his return to court that he and his attorney would contest the prosecution's case at a preliminary hearing. He then waived his right to a prompt preliminary hearing, which would have been required to take place within two weeks, according to Kohberger's attorney Anne Taylor, who testified before Magistrate Judge Megan Marshall. As previously reported by MEAWW, the preliminary hearing will begin on June 26 at 9.00 a.m. local time.
