MOSCOW, IDAHO: Seven weeks after the terrible murders of four University of Idaho students, the case got closer to being solved. The case, which caught attention of the whole nation, was a hard puzzle for the police but they finally apprehended a suspect, Bryan Kohberger, who was found 2,292.2 miles from Idaho.
The alleged killer is a graduate student from Washington State University and was apprehended on Friday, December 30, in Pennsylvania for brutally stabbing four Idaho students. Kohberger is accused of killing four University of Idaho students who allegedly kept an anonymous profile at his Washington State University apartment complex and lived with several neighbors, who were unaware that they were living with a killer. Recently, Kohberger's neighbor, who lived adjacent to his place, unveiled a few unsettling details about him.

Kohberger's neighbor, 34-year-old WSU employee Justin Williams, told Fox News that he rarely saw the alleged murderer. Williams said, "I'd see him go check his mail, that was it. Other than that, I've only seen him like twice the whole time, and I've lived here since July 2021," Williams said he observed the accused and found "nothing unusual" in Kohberger's behavior. Neighbors claim that the Steptoe Village building is a part of a WSU housing complex and is "quiet" in the typically secure city of Pullman, Washington.
At a news conference on Friday, Latah County Prosecutor Bill Thompson said that until Kohberger is returned to Idaho in accordance with state law, additional details regarding the killings and the investigation that resulted in his arrest will be sealed in a probable cause affidavit. In Monroe County, Pennsylvania, Kohberger is being held without bail and the date of his extradition hearing is January 3, 2023, as reported by New York Post. According to Thompson, Kohberger is charged with four counts of first-degree murder and felony burglary after allegedly breaking into the home, where four Idaho students were residing, with the intent to kill.
Details of Idaho murders
The murders generated a huge criminal investigation that involved numerous agencies and dozens of detectives. The victims of the stabbing deaths on November 13 in a Moscow rental property were University of Idaho seniors Madison Mogen, 21, of Coeur d'Alene, and Kaylee Goncalves, 21, of Rathdrum; sophomore Xana Kernodle, 20, of Post Falls; and freshman Ethan Chapin, 20, of Mount Vernon, Washington. The two other roommates who lived in the rental home with the three female victims, according to the police, were not wounded and were not complicit in the crime.
The police are urging public to send any valuable tips about Kohberger, Thompson said on Friday. The officer added, “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.” Thompson went on to add, “Report anything you know about him to help the investigators, and eventually our office and the court system, understand fully everything there is to know about not only the individual but what happened and why.”
