MOSCOW, IDAHO: A new claim on Idaho murder suspect Bryan Kohberger's suspicious behavior has surfaced from a woman who went on a Tinder date with the accused killer. She shared details of the uncomfortable date on TikTok. The woman who goes by her name Hayley as listed on the app said that Kohberger "kept trying to touch" her when he invited himself into her apartment.
In the viral TikTok video posted on Monday, January 9, Hayley talked about her brief bizarre date with Kohberger seven years ago. She allegedly matched with the suspect on Tinder, chatted with him for at least a day, and then he asked her out to the movies. She said, “My interactions with Bryan were very brief. I don’t know much about him. We matched on Tinder, we talked for a couple of hours, and then he was like, ‘Hey, you want to go to the movies with me tonight?’ I was like, sure. So we went to the movies.” The TikTok user recalled his very forward and apparently weird behavior after their first meeting at the movies.
Hayley's bizarre encounter with Kohberger
Talking about the Tinder date she went on with Kohberger, Hayley claimed that things went creepy when the alleged murderer could not keep his hands to himself after they watched a movie on Netflix in her apartment. She said, “I thought he was just going to drop me off, but that was not the case. He kind of invited himself inside. He kept trying to touch me. Not like inappropriately, just trying to tickle me, and like rubbing my shoulders and stuff and I was like "why are you touching me?".
She recalled that in response to her questioning Kohberger on touching her, he appeared to be 'super serious.' "He’s like, ‘I’m not,’ and I’m like, ‘you are though,’ and he’s like, ‘I’m not touching you.’ Kind of trying to gaslight me into thinking that he didn’t touch me, which is weird,” she said.
Hayley then excused herself to go use the bathroom of the shared dorm at this point. She claimed that Kohberger then followed her there. She said, “He didn’t go in with me, but as he stood outside the door … I just thought that was weird.”
The woman said she had to pretend to throw up so as to make Kohberger leave the place as she was too socially awkward to ask him to leave. “It wasn’t because I was scared of him or thought he would hurt me if I asked him to leave. It was just mostly because I’m socially awkward. I didn’t know how to ask him to leave,” Hayley said. He then messaged her on Tinder to inform her that he was leaving.
Relieved at Kohberger leaving the place and her plan turning out successfully, the woman claimed that an hour later, the suspect allegedly texted her saying that she had “good birthing hips”. She concluded her video by saying, “So I never talked to him [again].”
As of Tuesday, January 10, Hayley's TikTok video has over 1.3 million views.
