MOSCOW, IDAHO: Shocking information—including the discovery that the alleged killer of four University of Idaho students, Bryan Kohberger, had an ID that belonged to someone involved in the quadruple homicide—has come to light amid the gag order. In addition, police think they have proof linking Kohberger to an alleged cyberstalking incident involving a person from the doomed house where four University of Idaho students were murdered in November.
The identities of the IDs' owners were unknown when they were discovered in the glove box of Khoberger's car as part of a search warrant that was released earlier this year aside from other grisly evidence, News Nation reported. Experts suggest this was a big breakthrough in the case, however with a gag order in place it can't be confirmed.

'It’s a big deal'
“It’s a big deal. That is a smoking license,” said Jennifer Coffindaffer, retired FBI agent. "Just like the [knife sheath] was a smoking sheath found next to Madison Mogen’s body, with his DNA on that clasp, it’s the same thing in this situation. Why would he have an ID related to one of those people from that house?” he added.
Mark Geragos, a trial lawyer, and Coffindaffer both appeared on the network. Geragos predicted that Kohberger would be in "bad" shape if the ID discovery turned out to be accurate. On November 13, Xana Kernodle, Ethan Chapin, Madison Mogen, and Kaylee Goncalves were discovered stabbed to death inside the off-campus rental home they shared on King Road.
Khoberger at the time was a criminology doctorate student at Washington State University in Pullman, just 15 miles from the murder scene. Police detained him at his Pennsylvania parent's home six weeks after the horrific killings. According to the police, Khoberger was pulled during traffic stops as part of their investigation, while he was driving the suspected Elentra along with his father to his hometown. Additionally, before Khoberger was detained, authorities were able to "steal" trash and compare it to the DNA found on the button sheath. After the successful match, Khoberger was detained in the dead of night.
The DNA on the button sheath and the missing murder weapon
The murder weapon hasn't been located, despite the fact that authorities already had Khobergers DNA on a button sheath discovered inside the residence. In addition, authorities have cellular tower evidence showing Kohberger was close to the crime scene shortly after the murder.
Bryan Khobergers's other homicides?
Reacting to the rumors that Khoberger was stalking someone in the house and that prior to the killings he contacted someone, Coffindaffer's said, "If that’s true, why do people stalk? They stalk because they’re feeling persecuted, and this is a way that they can exact their revenge." Kohberger is being held in Latah County, Idaho, and has not yet admitted guilt to four counts of murder and one count of felony burglary. On June 26, he is expected back in court. As per a report, Kohberger is being looked at by Pennsylvania officials for his alleged involvement in further unsolved homicides.
