MOSCOW, IDAHO: The weapon used to stab four University of Idaho students to death is believed to be a fixed-blade Ka-Bar-style knife, which has still not been found. However, DNA found on a knife sheath recovered from the crime scene linked Bryan Kohberger, 28, to the murders. In the aftermath of the murders, social media users have been discussing whether there could be more DNA evidence, besides on the sheath.

SILENCE OF VIOLENCE: Internet wonders how nobody heard a thing as houses are close to Idaho crime scene

"In a way, those Indiana pullovers, one for speeding - other for tailgating - would provide video analysis to determine if there were any signs of cuts. Unless they were not on hands, if any, but further up on a forearm, past a wrist, on or around a waist. Someplace not visible to someone covered up," one user wrote on Reddit. "So would that mean, LE also has the suspects DNA, from cuts, fingernails, etc? I believe, I can’t exactly recall with certainty- but I thought or may have read or heard- that one of the parents stated that there was one hell of a battle or fight on second floor, or something like that? Perhaps more DNA, was collected also from second floor and LE may have in their possession more DNA evidence, but only strategically elected to discuss only the sheath. So not to allow suspects defense to strategize a potential explanation for singular evidence on a sheath - like can be explained someway by defendant. If LE, has more DNA other than that from the sheath, imo that will create even more issues for defense. If so - how can a defense explain other DNA besides on a sheath? IMO- I’m no expert- but I would speculate, that would be very difficult to overcome. Suspects defense, or any attempted attack on DNA, collected - imo likely will backfire on suspect."

"since it’s been speculated/rumored that xana had defensive wounds, i’m hoping she was able to get a good chunk of the killer’s dna under her nails and that LE is just saving that for the trial," one user said, while another wrote, "Someone stabbed 4 people to death. The killer would 100% have blood on him and it WILL be found in that car if it was him. Even the tiniest speck of blood, a single hair, a dog hair, the same kind of dirt that is in their yard (I know that’s not DNA, but you get the idea)." "100%. There HAS to be blood in that car," one user said.

"There’s gotta be. More touch, saliva, hair. It’s all gotta be there. This was a very physical encounter," one user wrote, adding, "Edit: not to mention it doesn’t matter what he did to that car. If there ever was any of the victims blood in that car they will find it." "There's no way they don't have more. With global attention on this case, they wouldn't rely on one piece of DNA and risk him getting off. And keep in mind LE only releases a fraction of what they have in the probable cause affidavit. There's going to be a lot that comes out," one user wrote. One said, "If BK is their guy, then they would have had to have found more DNA evidence by now imo. X defence wounds could just be from her putting her hands up to protect herself but hopefully she did scratch him."
