This article is based on sources and we have been unable to verify this information independently.
MOSCOW, IDAHO: Social media users have suggested that Idaho murder suspect Bryan Kohberger be given a public nickname. The 28-year-old has been accused of fatally stabbing University of Idaho students 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.
"He Needs a Public Nickname To Highlight How Pathetic His Murders Were. "Nitwit Killer," "Killer Obvious," "Catch Me If, Oh Nevermind"," one user wrote on Reddit. Various violent serial killers have been given nicknames in the past, that are still used to refer to them. While Lonnie David Franklin, Jr is called The Grim Sleeper, Gary Ridgway is called The Green River Killer. Dennis Rader is known as Bind, Torture, Kill (BTK) killer, Richard Ramirez as Night Stalker, and Ted Bundy as Lady Killer. Jeffrey Dahmer is infamously known as The Milwaukee Cannibal.
'Bryan the Careless Killer'
"BCK (Bryan Christopher Kohberger) or "Bryan the Careless Killer"...," a user commented on the Reddit thread. One said, "The Eyebrow Killer. He hid the knife in his right eyebrow", while another suggested, "I'm sure Tyrone will be calling him "BK - Have it your way" in the showers. Or maybe "Crying Bryan" once that sheath is pulled back."
"He doesn't deserve a nickname," one user said, while another commented, "He doesn't deserve attention either, IMO. So at least suitably and aptly insulting nickname would serve him well." "I think he would love for us to give him a nickname. He wants attention on him. I say just use BK," wrote one user.
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.
