MOSCOW, IDAHO: Several shocking revelations regarding Bryan Kohberger have emerged since the Idaho murder suspect's arrest. Recently, a web sleuth claimed that Kohberger was a "hedonistic serial killer" and wasn't able to control his "compulsions."
University of Idaho students Kaylee Goncalves, Xana Kernodle, Madison Mogen, and Ethan Chapin, were brutally stabbed to death on November 13. Kohberger, a PhD student, is currently facing four charges of first-degree murder and felony burglary in the case.
Speculating that Kohberger was a narcissist and lived in a "fantasy world," an individual wrote on Twitter, "BK met Maddie/Xana at The Mad Greek. BK = NARCISSISTIC IMMUNITY, HEDONISTIC STALKER/KILLER unable to control his compulsions because BK lives in a fantasy world of POWER & CONTROL."
The individual also shared a screenshot that explained what motivated hedonistic serial killers. The screenshot reads, "Hedonistic serial killers- Hedonistic serial killer seeks thrills and derives pleasure from killing. Forensic psychologists have identified three subtypes of the hedonistic killer: "lust" "thrill," and "comfort."
"Power/Control oriented serial killers- These types of killers want to seek control over others. To overcome feelings of powerlessness or inadequacy, such killers Murder to exert power and dominance over their victims. While this type often also sexually abuses their victims, it is not motivated by lust but is simply another form of dominating the victim. Ted Bundy is an example of a power/control-oriented serial killer," it added.

Since the horrifying killings, social media has been awash with bizarre claims and misleading explanations of the shocking crime. Moscow PD, however, kept the probe tightly under wraps until the suspect's arrest on December 30. Later, a probable cause affidavit filed in court unveiled crucial information about Kohberger.
Has Kohberger killed before?
Some experts think this is not Bryan Kohberger's first kill and speculate he may have left a "calling card" at the crime scene. However, according to Joseph Scott, a forensics expert, this could be the suspect's first murder, but probably not the first time he has tried to wriggle his way out of a crime. "Murder? Possibly. Bad act? No," Scott said when asked if he thought it was the suspect's first murder, MEAWW reported earlier.
Kohberger was apprehended on December 30 at his parents' home in eastern Pennsylvania, more than 2,000 miles from Moscow. He was transferred to the Latah County Jail late in the afternoon on January 4 after being extradited to Idaho. Kohberger was the only suspect that police had in the case, as per reports.
The suspect was already on the authorities' radar before he was apprehended. Cops worked hard to track him down by gathering his cell phone data and tracing his white Hyundai Elantra. As previously reported, the judge has issued a gag order in the case. Kohberger waived his right to an immediate preliminary hearing on January 12. His next hearing will now take place on June 26, 2023.
