MOSCOW, IDAHO: As University of Idaho murder suspect Bryan Kohberger awaits his next court hearing, scheduled for June 26, a still from a bodycam video that shows dirt on his car has left many to ponder if Kohberer was trying to conceal his rear plate before driving home. Kohberger, a 28-year-old criminology student, was arrested on December 30, in connection with the killings of four students - Kaylee Goncalves, 21, Madison Mogen, 21, Xana Kernodle, 20, and Ethan Chapin, 20.
In a recent development, Latah County Magistrate Judge Megan Marshall on January 19 issued a nondissemination order, commonly known as a gag order, prohibiting lawyers representing "any interested party in the case," such as witnesses, victims, or victims' families, from discussing the case in public. Key information about the case, including phone data that showed Kohberger visited the murder scene at least 12 times before the killings in his white Elantra car, has been a focal point of online discussions.
A recent thread on a Reddit sub dedicated to the discussion of Bryan Kohberger is speculating on whether or not the Idaho murder suspect tried to conceal the rear plate of his car in an attempt to not be identified. The thread posted by Redditor Resident-Show7760 shows a closeup of Bryan's car with visible dirt on it. The dirt appears forward-facing, leading netizens to question whether it was put there intentionally. Sharing the post, the Redditor wrote, "Bodycam shows dirt on car forward direction. Did BK conceal his rear plate before driving home?"
Given Bryan's educational background, many have commented on the post suggesting that the suspect was most possibly trying to cover his tracks. "It's possible he did and maybe that's why the police took comparativly more time. Bryan is smart, he must have tried to conceal it in a way that nobody got suspicious," wrote one user. "Especially the door edges, a lot of dirt is forward facing. I noticed that too," another said. "They received a lot of snow two days after murders and it continued to snow for some time. Salt from salt trucks or plow trucks are most likely what those marks are from. Winter in north means dirty looking cars," a third wrote.
