MONROE COUNTY, PENNSYLVANIA: The December 30 arrest of Bryan Kohberger was not an easy one as Pennsylvania police revealed Tuesday, January 3, that cops reportedly had to smash numerous windows and doors before putting handcuffs on him. Pennsylvania State Police Major Christopher Paris shared that since it was decided that the suspect will be detained at night, safety was their major concern.

As per FOX13 News, Paris said, “We wanted to go in at a time when we thought it would be the safest for everybody. Safest for anybody else in the house, safest for Mr. Kohberger, and safest for our people.” He also added that “there were multiple windows that were broken, I believe, to gain access, as well as multiple doors.”

Bryan Kohberger waived extradition

Meanwhile, Monroe County First District Attorney Michael Mancuso said that the 28-year-old has some motive behind not challenging his extradition. He noted, “Having read those documents and the sealed affidavits of probable cause, I definitely believe that one of the main reasons the defendant chose to waive extradition and hurry his return back to Idaho was the need to know what was in those documents. So that's a significant development.”

The PhD student has been accused of killing Kaylee Goncalves, Ethan Chapin, Xana Kernodle, and Madison Mogen on November 13. The four University of Idaho students were asleep when their lives were cut short. The motive behind the murders is not known yet.

During January 3’s hearing in his home state, Kohberger reportedly arrived wearing a red jail-issue jumpsuit. When judge Margherita Worthington asked him if he wanted to object to his arrest on four counts of first-degree murder, he answered in affirmative. Worthington also questioned him, “Do you wish to waive the rights that I have just explained to you and return to the state of Idaho?” to which he reportedly added, “Yes.”

What did the suspect’s family say?

After Kohberger’s arrest, his family shared a statement, which mentioned, “First and foremost, we care deeply for the four families who have lost their precious children. There are no words that can adequately express the sadness we feel, and we pray each day for them. We will continue to let the legal process unfold and as a family, we will love and support our son and brother.”

The statement went on to state, “We have fully cooperated with law enforcement agencies in an attempt to seek the truth and promote his presumption of innocence rather than judge unknown facts and make erroneous assumptions,” before adding, “We respect privacy in this matter as our family and the families suffering a loss can move forward through the legal process.”
