MOSCOW, IDAHO: Four days ago, on January 18, 2023, in newly unsealed search warrant records, authorities detailed the items they seized from Bryan Kohberger's residence after he was arrested on December 30, 2022, and charged with the murders of four University of Idaho students Ethan Chapin, 20, Xana Kernodle, 20, Madison Mogen, 21, and Kaylee Goncalves, 21, in the early hours of November 13, 2022. The report revealed that the cops found possible animal hair strands, disposable gloves, and items with red and brown stains, reported MEAWW.

In the search warrant record, investigators listed several items with stains, including cuttings of a mattress cover, a “reddish/brown” stain on an uncovered pillow, and a “collection of dark red spot," states The Independent. Commenting on it, Dr Monte Miller, a former crime scene investigator and forensic expert for the Texas Department of Public Safety, said, "A reddish or brown stain is a euphemism for, ‘We found something that looks like blood.' It might be blood from the victims, might be his blood. They don’t know until they test it, but they’ll be able to get DNA if it is blood. We don’t know what the stains in the cover sheets look like, but again they’re looking for any kind of DNA, evidence that might have come from the crime scene.” He added, "The likelihood that any of those stains came from the crime scene, is going to be dependent on how well he cleaned up."

While former FBI agent Jennifer Coffindaffer explained that the suspect would have left behind evidence at the scene but also taken evidence with him before leaving. She then said, “I would want to point out that it’s not really as interesting to me what is on the search warrant as what’s not on the search won’t return. I just expected so much more information, so many more hair. I expected fibres, I expected clothing to be taken. I had hope for shoes.”

Following the report by The Independent, one of many on Reddit questioned, "Is the case against BK weaker than we thought?" One replied, "Well he planned for weeks, had two months after to clean up, and traveled cross country sooo. I think there was more than I expected." While a user wrote, "I don’t necessarily think they didn’t find enough or evidence is weak — I think this case has been sensationalized to the point where we all expected so much more."

One more commented, "And THIS is why everyone is a little annoyed about DM [Dylan Mortensen, one of the two surviving roommates] not calling 911 after her frozen stage. If she would have called, I believe they would have caught him much quicker, maybe that night, and he wouldn’t have had time to destroy evidence."

Continuing the thread, an individual pointed out, "We don't know what was found in his car or computer. Everything from that night was probably buried in the forest."

"I was hoping it would have more information about the crime but I wasn't really surprised it didn't. I know he made mistakes but I think he was smart enough not to leave all the evidence about. From his neighbors description it seemed like he kept it pretty clean too. The big things are going to be his computer history and his car. I think even with cleanings it would've been impossible to get all the dna out of the car if it existed," said a person.

Another wrote, "This is only from 1 search warrant that was released. We have no idea what they found in his car or parents house. Also his computer might give a ton of information."
