MOSCOW, IDAHO: Bryan Christopher Kohberger has been charged in the November 13 murders of University of Idaho students Xana Kernodle, Ethan Chapin, Madison Mogen, and Kaylee Goncalves. Kohberger was apprehended in Pennsylvania on December 30 and later extradited to Idaho.
Ever since the murders, web sleuths have floated various theories on the Internet concerning Kohberger while members of the community have described their run-ins with the alleged killer. Recently, a Redditor claimed that she saw Kohberger's dating profile just one week after the brutal murders.
The user wrote, "I think I saw Bryan 1 week after the murders, and I can't get it out of my head." They added, "I have this app to make new friends/dating (wizz) and a week after the murders I think I saw Bryan on it. I just can't quite remember it well because I swiped through his profile quickly, but when the picture of him that his university had up on their website was released I could have sworn I saw that same picture on the app when I was swiping, I remember my first thought being "he doesn't look his age" because the app only matches you with people around your age so for me it only matches me with people 17-21 and he looked twice that age in that picture."
They added, "I obviously didn't think anything of it though I thought maybe it was one of those guys trying to get a sugar baby, but after the picture came out on the news I just can't stop thinking about if it was him or not since I scrolled so fast and didn't think about it again."
The user went on, "I just assumed maybe it wasn't him but now that the tinder girl has come out to talk about her date with him and now that we know he was very active on online forums and stuff I keep thinking about what if it was him? And if it was what was he planning to do? I can't stop thinking about it but I don't know if I should submit a tip to the tipline since I'm not sure and I have no screenshots. I just can't stop thinking if he was planning to do something like this again."
Kohberger's Tinder dates
A woman who claimed to have gone on a Tinder date with Bryan Kohberger recently commented on his shady behavior. The woman, who goes under the name Hayley on TikTok, discussed the awkward date in detail in a video. Apparently, Kohberger invited himself inside her apartment and "kept trying to touch" her. The brief and bizarre date happened seven years ago, MEAWW reported.
Another woman shared a similar story about a Tinder date with Kohberger and said she got "creepy vibes" from him. She said, "I went on a Tinder date with him [Bryan Kohberger] and he gave me really creepy vibes and I was scared to ask him to leave so I pretended to loudly vomit in the bathroom so he would leave." She added at the end of her post, "Always listen to your gut," as MEAWW reported earlier.
Kohberger, a criminology PhD candidate at Washington State University, has been slapped with four charges of murder and one count of felony burglary. He is the only suspect in the grisly murders. He was apprehended at his parents' house in eastern Pennsylvania, more than 2,000 miles from Moscow.
