MOSCOW, IDAHO: Web sleuths are now debating the possibility that University of Idaho murder suspect Bryan Kohberger could have fled while on his way to his family home in Pennsylvania. Kohberger, 28, is accused of breaking into the Moscow off-campus rental home early on November 13 with the intention to kill, according to the prosecutors. Police received a 911 call later in the morning regarding an incapacitated person, and when they arrived, they discovered the four students—Kaylee Goncalves, Madison Mogen, Xana Kernodle, and Ethan Chapin—stabbed to death inside the home.
Shortly after Kohberger was detained, two police bodycam videos emerged showing him being stopped on the highway en route to Pennsylvania with his father. Netizens are now wondering if he would have ditched his car and fled somewhere if he was not with his father.
A Redditor claimed, “It just occurred to me that Bryan might have chosen to flee after being pulled over twice on his way back to PA had his dad not been with him on the trip.” “I was thinking that too. Or he would have purchased another vehicle,” another added. Someone noted, “Well, I assume if he was really going to flee he would ditch the car at some point.” However, several users argued that fleeing would have been pointless for Bryan as investigators were already on his tail.
One user wrote, “The FBI was on his tail, the whole trip back to PA. If he fled, let's say after he arrived at his parent's place and after dropping his dad off - he would have been arrested the same day (December 30th), maybe a couple of hours later than his actual arrest. To quote 2pac 'All eyes on me'!” “The FBI and state police in Pennsylvania had over 200 people watching BKs every move until the DNA sample (from his parent's house) came back. Once they got confirmation, it was game over. If BK ran before the results came back, you know they would have caught him, maybe a few hours later (than his actual arrest time on December 30th),” another added.
Meanwhile, several claimed that Kohberger was not too worried given that investigators took more than a month to actually arrest him. “I think once he made it a few weeks he wasn’t really worried about it. He probably thought if they had anything they’d have gotten him. I’m sure being pulled over made him feel uncomfortable and worried especially with Dad on board,” a user remarked. These discussions come as Brian Kohberger is currently awaiting his preliminary trial, which is set for June this year.
