MOSCOW, IDAHO: Authorities have identified and captured Bryan Christopher Kohberger, the suspect arrested for the murder of four University of Idaho students — Kaylee Goncalves, Madison Mogen, Ethan Chapin, and Xana Kernodle. The 28-year-old was captured in the Poconos on Friday, December 30, nearly seven weeks after he allegedly crept into the Kings Road residence where the four students were sleeping and killed them with a J-shaped knife.
Kohberger was reportedly "a little bit shocked" the day after he was arrested, according to his counsel Jason LaBar, who added that the suspect "believes he's going to be exonerated," as reported by Today.
Recently, Fox Nation host Nancy Grace claimed that "evidence" would clinch a conviction for the Kohberger. Grace said that she has serious doubts about Kohberger's ability to remove "every single trace of evidence" from his Hyundai Elantra, which was the car that police had been searching for as it was seen near the crime site at or around the time of the murders. "There's no way you can convince me that there's not one single trace of evidence in that Elantra," Grace said. "He may be brilliant, but there is no way he can clean that Elantra to get rid of every single trace of evidence," she added.
Kohberger was on his way to completing his PhD program in the Department of Criminal Justice and Criminology at Washington State University, just a few miles from the Kings Road rental home of the four victims near the University of Idaho. Following the murders on November 13, Kohberger allegedly returned to WSU as a PhD student and a teaching assistant.
Kohberger extradition hearing
Kohberger's extradition hearing will begin at 3.30 pm EST on January 3 in the Monroe County Courthouse in Stroudsberg, Pennsylvania. According to court officials, who confirmed the situation on Monday, January 2, the hearing will take place in a courtroom, but cameras will not be allowed inside. According to Pennsylvania Supreme Court rules, journalists will be admitted to the courtroom on a 'first-come, first-serve' basis.
The 28-year-old PhD candidate in criminology will relinquish his right to extradition, allowing him to be transferred from Pennsylvania to Idaho, where he has been charged with murder. According to the public defender Jason LaBar, who is representing Kohberger, the suspect might return to Idaho as early as Tuesday night, January 3, or as late as Wednesday, January 4, depending on the court's conclusion, as reported by MEAWW.
Details of the case
More details about what motivated officials to detain him on suspicion of the murders of the four students on November 13, 2022, are expected to emerge when he arrives in Idaho, and the criminal complaint is made public, as reported by CNN.
The police, on the other hand, have requested that the public send any useful information concerning Kohberger. On Friday, December 30, Latah County Prosecutor Bill Thompson stated, "This is not the end of this investigation. In fact, this is a new beginning." He further added, "You all now know the name of the person who has been charged with these offenses, please get that information out there, please ask the public, anyone, who knows about this individual, to come forward," as reported by MEAWW.
