MONROE COUNTY, PENNSYLVANIA: After choosing to waive his extradition rights, Idaho murder's prime suspect Bryan Kohberger will now be transported by authorities, in the coming days. However, now the challenge for the officials will be how to extradite Kohberger, and many former experts weigh in their opinions. Art Roderick, an ex-assistant director of investigations for the US Marshals Service shares how he would have handled the situation, “I can’t imagine they would fly this particular individual commercially, both because of the security issue from the public, but also, he’s such a high profile individual.”

He further added, “We would put him on a small aircraft by himself with three or four marshals or law enforcement and go ahead and move him across the country just like that.” Kohberger is facing four counts of first-degree murder and one count of felony burglary in the killings of Kaylee Goncalves, Xana Kernodle, Maddie Mogen, and Ethan Chapin at a home near the campus in November, last year. Roderick, who has decades of experience working with an agency that tracks down fugitives, told Law&Crime that a request ‘might’ have been already made to the Marshals Service in advance of his extradition hearing, which took place on Tuesday, January 3.

Jason LaBar, the chief public defender for Monroe County, representing Kohberger in Pennsylvania said, “Mr. Kohberger intends to waive his extradition hearing to expedite his transport to Idaho.” In a statement, LaBar added, “Mr Kohberger has been accused of very serious crimes, but the American justice system cloaks him in a veil of innocence. He should be presumed innocent until proven otherwise — not tried in the court of public opinion. One should not pass judgment about the facts of the case unless and until a fair trial in court at which time all sides may be heard and inferences challenged.”

The US Marshals Services is responsible for the transportation of prisoners within the US, where it is estimated to be handling ‘around 260,000 by aircraft.’ “We have our own airlines, this prisoner alien transportation system, or as people like to call it, con air,” said Roderick. After the extradition court hearings, Sgt Christopher Paris of the Pennsylvania State Police revealed that suspect Kohberger is currently held in Monroe County jail until he’s extradited, “Those arrangements are being discussed right now, as well as the logistics the court order says. Those of you who heard it today, it’s within the next 10 days, so we’re currently working on that,” as per Law&Crime.
