MOSCOW, IDAHO: Six weeks after the brutal killings of four University of Idaho students, police finally arrested a suspect in the case that had mystified law enforcement and web sleuths. On Friday, December 30, Bryan Christopher Kohberger, 28, was taken into custody for the savage killings of the four University of Idaho students.
On the internet, there has been a lot of debate and speculation regarding the case, the victims, and the suspect. Many Reddit users are now speculating whether the Idaho suspect may have "built up by practicing" for murder and "harmed animals."
The murders which took place on November 13 took the lives of four University of Idaho students - Kaylee Goncalves, 21, Madison Mogen, 21, Ethan Chapin, 20, and Xana Kernodle, 20. Kohberger has been charged with four counts of first-degree murder and burglary, for allegedly breaking into the Moscow, Idaho, home with the intent to commit a felony, authorities said.
'Who decides to kill multiple people for their first crime?'
Reddit users talked about the Idaho murder case and suspect Bryan Kohberger extensively, and many believe this is not his first murder. A user wrote, "I'm utterly convinced he's murdered before." Another user said, "Exactly!!! most of these murderer mofos don't jump into things immediately, they build up by practicing. ewwwwwwww so creepy." "And who decides to kill multiple people for their first crime?" questioned a user. "If this is the guy, I wonder if this is not his first murder? I could see him being surprised, but that seems awfully ambitious. Especially since he was known to creep people out in that brewery, asking women where they lived, where they worked, and what their schedules were," one said.
"I think he has to have done...SOMETHING before. i wanna say murder but maybe not--but like you said for his first murder he kills 4 damn people???" another user added. "Even if he'd only "practiced" on animals or something, i just keep thinking there's gotta be more to his fuckery... now looking through the police logs, i think they're all him, i'm getting wayyyyy to wrapped up in this LOL."
'Maybe they kill animals first?'
One person shared his view on the speculations and wrote, "I do get a vibe from all the information, and speculation, that he probably did creep on the low around the area. I’ll put it on record: I’m certain he crept around observing the students nearby. I personally think he wanted to get his toes wet so it’s not far fetched he’d practice first." Another user shared, "There were reports of a skinned animal nearby where the murders happened as well I believe, so that would go with the theory of practicing beforehand." A user doubted, "Maybe they kill animals first?" Another added, "I feel like I heard some where there was a dog killed in the area." One user remarked, " Animal torture is a well known behavior escalation along the path to murder for a lot of serial killers/mass murderers."
