MOSCOW, IDAHO: Washington State University's PhD student Bryan Kohberger was arrested in December for killing four Idaho students on November 13. Since his arrest, the killer gained major popularity amongst the web sleuths, with many even trying to contact him inside the jail. In a new Reddit thread, a person has claimed that anyone can contact the inmates through an app, sparking curiosity amongst Internet users.
Kohberger allegedly killed Xana Kernodle, Ethan Chapin, Madison Mogen, and Kaylee Goncalves in their Idaho home. While Xana Kernodle was found dead in her 2nd-floor room, her boyfriend Ethan Chapin was murdered outside her room. Madison Mogen and Kaylee Goncalves who were childhood best friends died on the third floor, in the same bed.

'Anyone can add him on the app'
One Reddit user wrote that Bryan Kohberger was allegedly on a phone call for almost four hours when the new documents of the case were released last month. The person wrote, "There was a poster about a week back, when the gag order appeal was filed, who has a family member in the same jail system as BK. I think their phone calls are viewable. They had noticed BK on the phone for about 4 hours, typically around the time new docs come out. Most likely speaking with counsel. So it may not be that often?" Another one said, "You’re able to view telephone communications if you’re an approved contact on their cellmate list through the jail. I’m pretty sure anyone can add him, he just has to accept it."
One person claimed, "Yes I added him and I can see a green light on whenever he’s using the tablet or on a call. It def feels weird lol but it’s interesting. It makes me feel good to know that the average inmate has a better connection to the outside world vs 20 years ago." Thrilled by the fact that cellmates get to use tablets inside the jail, one said, "You….added him? On what? (Not being rude, I didn’t even know they were allowed tablets)." The person replied, "Yes, I envisioned inmates still using a pay phone from 1980 but apparently they do all their scheduled calls from a tablet and I believe they can also watch some movies. BK is not able to message the public at this time or turned off the ability to. But I’m assuming he’s using the tablet to call his lawyer and family or watch a movie."
'Anyone can request to schedule a zoom call with him'
Spilling details about an app through which you can connect with the inmate one said, "Only if you add them on the prison call app thing, and then they have to accept your request. So the criminal/Bryan is accepting these requests from people, knowingly allowing them to see when he is on the phone." The person who claimed of adding Bryan Kohberger further answered, "No you can’t see any details of the activity. I literally can only see a green dot when he’s using the tablet. It did make me question how easy it was to complete an account, though. I think if you actually wanted to chat with an inmate, you’d have to add money to their account and potentially verify your account using a photo ID. BK is not accepting chat at this time, although I do think anyone can request to schedule a zoom call with him. But I don’t think he would accept one. I’m not that familiar and was just following something I saw from Reddit to accomplish this."
