MOSCOW, IDAHO: Cops from Moscow PD were seen removing mattresses and other furniture from the Idaho home where the four University of Idaho students, Kaylee Goncalves, 21, Madison Mogen, 21, Xana Kernodle, 20, and Ethan Chapin, 20, were murdered on November 13, 2022. A video posted on social media and by various media outlets showed investigators arriving at the house on Friday, January 6, and removing the victims' belongings from the King Road house. 

One such clip posted by News Nation showed that around 1 pm, two mattresses covered in white plastic were carried out onto trucks by investigators. The top cover on one of the mattresses had dark stains, presumably blood. Altogether two white garbage bags and five cardboard boxes, thought to contain the victims' belongings, were also loaded onto the vehicles. The clip appears after police revealed in late November 2022 that they were almost finished gathering evidence from the rental property.

Meanwhile, Bryan Kohberger, a 28-year-old teaching assistant and PhD candidate in the Department of Criminal Justice at Washington State University, was apprehended by police on December 30, 2022, in relation to the crime. Recently, a scheduled house clearing was put on hold after the suspect's defense team received a court order to preserve the scene. According to court records, Kohberger and his legal representative, Anne Taylor, requested that the 1122 King Road home be kept sealed until February 1.

Kohberger appeared in front of a court on Wednesday morning, January 4, and is now being held in a jail in Idaho without bond. He is charged with four counts of first-degree murder and four counts of burglary with the intent to commit murder, and if found guilty of the murder allegation, he could receive the death penalty or life in prison. He was reportedly residing in Pullman, Washington, in student housing at the time of the crime, which was almost a 10-minute drive away. The four victims were thought to have been stabbed by Kohberger between 3.30am and 4.30am while they slept, police said. 

As authorities are still looking for the knife that was reportedly used in the murders, court records revealed that the suspect left a knife sheath in the home after killing the victims. Police took the DNA from the knife sheath and that ultimately led to Kohberger's arrest. According to the affidavit, his white Hyundai Elantra was also repeatedly observed on camera close to the crime scene before it was later seen speeding away from the house and toward Pullman around 4.20am after the murders.
