The 28-year-old, who is currently being quartered in Latah County Jail, has been charged in connection to the brutal murders of Kaylee Gonvalves, 21, Ethan Chapin, 20, Xana Kernodle, 20, and Madison Mogen, 21 in their off-campus home on November 13, 2022. The suspect was arrested from his parent’s Pennsylvania house on Friday, December 30. As per official affidavits, Kohberger lived in a Washington State University apartment, where he allegedly kept an anonymous profile. Recently, the criminology graduate student's neighbor, who lived adjacent to his place, unveiled a few unsettling details about him.

The neighbors, who wished to remain anonymous, claimed Kohberger’s father asked them to be friends with him when he moved into the off-campus apartment. “We learned that his father, who seemed like a really nice guy according to [Kohberger’s] neighbor, asked the neighbor to be friends with Kohberger. It’s like me arranging a playdate for my twins when they were three years old,” Nancy Grace said on the ‘Crime Stories’ episode, according to Crime Online. “He [Kohberger’s father] said it’s hard for his son to meet people or to make friends.” One neighbor’s wife also told 'Crime Stories' that she didn’t want to know Kohberger and even refused to invite him over for dinner after she sensed ‘something off about him’.

This came just days after another neighbor of Kohberger noted that the suspect spoke to him about the University of Idaho murders days after the students were killed. "He brought it up in conversation," the neighbor, who did not want to be named, told CBS News. "[He] asked if I had heard about the murders, which I did. And then he said, 'Yeah, seems like they have no leads. Seems like it was a crime of passion.'" The neighbor added, "At the time of our conversation, it was only a few days after it happened so there weren't many details out."
