MOSCOW, IDAHO: The team of investigators hired by Bryan Kohberger's defense team arrived at the Idaho house on Thursday, January, 3. Kohberger is accused of fatally stabbing four University of Idaho students in this house where the team arrived hours before the Idaho suspect waived his extradition hearings at Monroe County Court in Stroudsburg, Penselviniya. At around noon, three men and two women came to the off-campus, 1122 King Road residence and spent 45 minutes filming inside and outside the property.
Kaylee Goncalves, Ethan Chapin, Xana Kernodle, and Madison Mogen were brutally killed in an alleged knife attack while they slept in the early morning hours of November, 13 on the second and third floors of the now doomed home. Although the four investigators departed the property after inspecting the house on Tuesday, the crime scene reconstruction analyst has stayed back, reports suggested.
Apparently, an Idaho State trooper accompanied the group of investigators to the house. However, the attorney defending Kohberger as per the report hasn't been identified yet. "The fact that Bryan Kohberger's attorney has brought in private investigators to go throughout this crime scene leads me to believe that he is definitely going to mount a strong defense," said Fox News contributor Ted Williams, a former homicide detective and attorney.
It also comes after the court orders halted cleansing crew operations at the crime scene on Friday when the Moscow police announced the suspect Kohberger's arrest from his parent's home in Albrightsville, Pennsylvania's Pocono Mountains region. The police have since claimed that the DNA genetic material recovered from the crime scene matched Khoberger's with some reports suggesting that law enforcement agencies chased the suspect when he made a cross-country trip from his Pullan, Washington office residence to his home 2500 miles far.
Jason Labar, the chief public defender who merely represents Kohberger for his extradition hearings which the latter waived off on Tuesday to likely speed up his travel to Idaho so as to deny all the charges. Though calm, Kohberger was a "bit shocked" by the arrest as per Labar, and he believes he will be exonerated. "It is a little out of character, he said, this is not him, he believes he’s going to be exonerated — that's what he believes, those were his words, so he’s really been very easy to talk to, actually, and he's in a calm demeanor like I stated," LaBar told NBC News.
