MOSCOW, IDAHO: Bryan Kohberger, 28, the sole suspect for the murders of four University of Idaho students was arrested on December 30 at his parents' home in eastern Pennsylvania, more than 2,500 miles away from the town of Moscow. Since, then a lot of details have emerged linking Kohberger to the killings, mostly from the probable cause affidavit that was released on January 5. Now, the records of evidence recovered from Kohberger's house have been unsealed too. Cops searched Kohberger's Washington apartment and found possible animal hair strands, disposable gloves, and items with red and brown stains, as per the records released on Wednesday, January 18. They have also recovered receipts, mattress covers, the dust container of a vacuum cleaner and a Fire TV stick.
The evidence that has been revealed so far has left the internet users wondering if "anything was seized at the parents' residence" during Kohberger's arrest, speculating that Kohberger might have "stashed the evidence at his parent's property." Four University of Idaho students, Ethan Chapin, 20, Xana Kernodle, 20, Madison Mogen, 21, and Kaylee Goncalves, 21, were stabbed to death on November 13 in their off-campus rental home on King Road in Moscow, Idaho. Kohberger, charged with their murders, has waived his right to a speedy preliminary hearing when he appeared in court on January 12.
A Redditor asked, "Was anything seized at the parents' residence during the arrest of the suspect?" The user further considered the possibility that Kohberger "took evidence with him" to hide or dispose off at his parent's property. "I'm assuming a warrant was made to seize the accused's luggage and car from the property and that a similar itemised list exists in Pennsylvania. Is it possible he took evidence with him to stash at their property?" asked the user.
A user agreed stating that Kohberger has done some "not smart things." Their post read, "Anything is possible, if he is indeed the perpetrator. He had already done some real not smart things." Another user believed that more information might be "unsealed" in the coming months. "It is possible but I dont think he did. Anyway we might find out by the end of february/beginning of march when it is unsealed," read their post on the thread.
However, several users believed that Kohberger would most definitely have dumped any evidence he carried with him enroute, on his long car trip across the country. "A 2500-mile trip would have had me dumping evidence along the route not at Mom and Dads to be linked to me," wrote a user. "I think he got rid of evidence long before that trip," added another. While a user pointed that Kohberger's father "would have noticed" something was wrong if he was dumping evidence. "I wondered that too, but his dad likely would have noticed," wrote the user.
