MOSCOW, IDAHO: A social media user has narrated how they felt as they drove by the Idaho murder house where four University of Idaho students were brutally slaughtered. The suspect, 28-year-old Bryan Kohberger, has been accused of fatally stabbing Kaylee Goncalves, 21, Madison Mogen, 21, Xana Kernodle, 20, and Ethan Chapin, 20, in their off-campus three-story rented home on November 13, 2022. Kohberger was arrested in Albrightsville, Pennsylvania, on Friday, December 30.
"Today I decided to drive past the house on king rd I’m not sure if anyone is interested on my perspective but here it is," a user wrote on Reddit. "As i was driving up i felt an eerie-ness. I made the turn onto king rd and felt sad before i even saw the house. i can’t describe the feeling i had knowing the route that was taken to and from leaving a horrible crime scene. there weren’t a lot of people around. I saw one car of college students dropping someone off on the dead end at king rd. I took the left turn to be in front of the house. there was one car parked in front of the house (i’m assuming it was NewsNation bc it was a silver expedition Brian Entin has been driving)."
"Everything seemed quiet. as i approached the house, it looked bigger than it looks on tv. when you’re down on the street you almost have to crank your neck up to see the 3rd floor roof. Everything is more cramped than it looks in pictures too. I drove up the hill of queen road to the parking lot surprised at how easily you could see all the windows of the house. The apartments next door are extremely close to the house, I don’t know how nobody heard anything. I was parked where a murderer made his exit path after brutally killing 4 innocent lives. I couldn’t make sense of how anyone could do such a thing. It feels too personal and too real. This is the closest i’ve been to a crime scene. I can’t imagine the horror that happened inside those walls but i felt like i was forced to from seeing the outside. The house looks like any other college house you would see in pullman or moscow or any other college town. As i was driving home to pullman, i started seeing these similarities and i really truly realized this could have been me and my roommates," the post said, adding, "Please hug your friends and family and tell them you love them. Tell them how much they mean to you. Life truly is precious."
Other users discussed ways to keep oneself safe, with one of them saying, "Buy a gun and a bearmace (several) and keep that s**t in strategic places. Also get a habit of locking your doors and windows." "And cams on at least the entrances. Keep your window coverings closed starting at dusk," another user added. One user said, "And check them!! After learning about GSK I check and double check doors daily and in summer do the same for windows. An ounce of prevention!!!!"
"I love sleeping with the windows open and bundled under blankets. But I live on the first floor and it definitely crossed my mind that someone could Kohberger me. I ended up closing the window," one user said, while another wrote, "This! Locking doors and windows! This could have prevented so much. If he broke in at least there would have been some sort of noise/warning? Maybe it wouldn't have helped but come on! Make it as hard as possible!"
It has been revealed that Kohberger returned to the crime scene area and may even have stalked their homes about 12 times before the attack. His cell phone pinged its location in the area of the house where the crimes were committed at around 9 am on November 13, which was just five hours after he killed the students, according to the New York Post.
Kohberger was arrested more than 2,000 miles away from where the murders took place and agreed to be extradited to Idaho from Pennsylvania. His lawyer reportedly said that he was shocked after being arrested and was reportedly planning to deny the murders. The weapon used to stab the students to death is believed to be a fixed-blade Ka-Bar-style knife. Kohberger, a PhD student in Washington State University’s Department of Criminal Justice and Criminology, was reportedly charged with four counts of murder in the first degree as well as felony burglary in connection with the deaths of the four students.
