IDAHO, MOSCOW: Bryan Kohberger, the prime suspect in the murders of four University of Idaho students, has shown eerie similarities to Brian Laundrie, who killed his fiance in August 2021. Kohberger reportedly showed off no emotions during his court appearance on Thursday, January, 5, which is a common trait in narcissists.

According to a body language expert, Kohberger's behavior resembles much of Laundrie, who charmed the police officers into believing that he was innocent when pulled over during a cross-country road trip across the US in 2021. The couple was stopped after witnesses confessed to seeing him slap Gabby. While Laundrie's fiance Gabby Petito appeared to be "incredibly frightened, crying and super emotional," the cops let the man go as he displayed no similarity to the real circumstance. "He was charming the policeman and smiling, showing what would be narcissistic behavior because it didn't match what had happened," body language expert Patti Wood told The Sun. "I see the charming narcissist, where their emotions don't match the circumstances, but they tend to work," she said, referring to Laundrie later on executing his fiance's murder.

"It worked in that police stop because the policeman said, 'Oh, he's a good guy, he's a buddy, there's no real problem here'. And they let him go. I have a suspicion that this is the way [Kohberger] is. That he has that element of him," Wood added. The expert found an uncanny resemblance between the murder suspect and Laundrie after analyzing the former's body language during his appearance in court. 

Kohberger had a "stoic" posture during his entrance into the courtroom. "He sat down, turned to [his public defender], and flashed a brief smile," Wood noted. However, the smile quickly vanished as he turned back. "That was revealing to me because he went to his automatic charm. He went to that charming smile and then recovered right away." Wood emphasized that Kohberger is "used to using that charm and smile" and his subconscious "did it before he realized."

She admitted that the most notable thing about Kohberger that is he could "suppress it." "The criminals who show the least emotion are the scariest because they are the most puzzling to us," she explained. "The fact that he can be read the details of these murders that were committed - that he may or may not have done - and remain so stoic with very little expression. That's what makes it so scary. That's what makes us so uncomfortable because we think, ‘how can you not be affected by this?'"

Wood further added how Kohberger has exhibited no fear up till now. Moreover, he showed "no emotion" in his voice, while responding to Judge Marshall listing his alleged crimes. She admitted that the suspect, at times, could also be seen staring up from under his eyebrows, which Wood describes as a "f*** you" to the judge. While taking note of how Kohberger did not hesitate in his responses, she added: "We're looking for any clue of who the heck this guy is and what he really feels, and there are just these little bits of it."

Kohberger, 28, is charged with the murders of Madison Mogen, Kaylee Goncalves, Xana Kernodle, and Ethan Chapin. An affidavit for Kohberger’s arrest revealed that cops identified him after matching his father's DNA to that found on a knife sheath recovered from the crime scene. It is also revealed that one of the surviving roommates heard "crying" and "froze" when she saw a "man dressed in black" in the hallway on the night of the murders.
