MOSCOW, IDAHO: A newly released affidavit reveals the evidence that led authorities to suspect Bryan Kohberger, the 28-year-old criminology student who has been accused of fatally stabbing four University of Idaho students - Ethan Chapin, 20, Xana Kernodle, 20, Madison Mogen, 21, and Kaylee Goncalves, 21, in an off-campus house on November 13, 2022, and got arrested after seven weeks on December 30. The Moscow Police Department Corporal Brett Payne in the affidavit alleged that Dylan Mortenson, one of the surviving roommates, heard “chilling cries” and also saw the killer walk right past her. But internet sleuths still continue to wonder if the crime took place between 3 am and 4 am, why the 911 call didn’t happen until 11.58 am, and why Mortensen did not call immediately.
A user asked on Reddit, "The probable cause affidavit says the roommate saw the killer at 4am and then locked herself in her bedroom….Why didn’t anyone call police until noon the next day? I’m baffled." One more wrote, "So she opens her door multiple times because of suspicious noises - including her roommate crying - finally peeks through the door and sees a MASKED MAN (presumably at this point covered in blood) fleeing and she…..locks her door and goes to sleep? I’m just trying to understand. How does one do that?" However, many came in support of Mortensen with one writing, "First it was the cruel assumptions and speculation on both of the roommates, that turned out to be obviously false with a random murderer nobody knew. And now it’s still ‘sus’ for all of you ‘incredible detectives’ because she didn’t call 911 right after hearing noises and seeing an intruder with a face mask and probably with a bloody knife, when it was stated she was in a 'frozen shock phase.'"
Countering it one said, "She was in frozen shock and went back to TikTok and went to bed and checked on them at noon. People aren’t mad that she didn’t confront the intruder, but she waited 8 hrs to do anything." While one wrote, "It’s fair to question but not accuse."
One more commented by saying, "ALL of you doubting Dylan are disgusting human beings." While a user wrote, "I have seen PLENTY of accusations being thrown around at the witnessing roommate. What "innocent narrative"??? She had NOTHING to do with the murders of her friends/roommates, but people are accusing her of just that. Let's stop making snap judgements and wait to hear all the evidence." "100% AGREEEEE!! The way all these people are judging others like they were there and KNOW exactly how it went down and exactly how they would react is fucking ridiculous," wrote a user.
Bryan Kohberger to appear in court on January 12
Kohberger, who graduated from DeSales University in Pennsylvania in May 2022 with a master of arts in criminal justice and is a PhD student in the Department of Criminal Justice and Criminology at Washington State University, was arrested by the FBI and Pennsylvania State Police, arraigned by a Monroe County judge. He faces four counts of first-degree murder for the brutal stabbings of four students. At a court hearing on December 3, Kohberger waived extradition as he agreed to be extradited from Pennsylvania to Idaho in his first court hearing, as previously reported by MEAWW. He is now being held on bail and will appear in court on January 12.
