Bryan Kohberger sisters- Bryan Kohberger of Albrightsville, Pennsylvania was taken into custody by an FBI SWAT team and Pennsylvania State Police on December 30 at the home of his parents in Chestnuthill Township in Monroe County, Pennsylvania for the murder of four University of Idaho students.
Kohberger attended DeSales University after graduating from Northampton. He graduated from DeSales University with a B.A. in 2020 and an M.A. in Criminal Justice in 2022.
Nine days prior to his arrest, he had finished the first semester at Washington State University in Pullman, Washington, where he had gone to seek a PhD in the same profession. Moscow is located around 10 miles (16 km) west of the Pullman campus.
Kohberger fatally stabbed the victims in the early hours of November 13, 2022, while they slept in an off-campus three-story rented home in Moscow, Idaho.
Events of the day
Chapin and Kernodle, two of the four fatalities, attended an on-campus party at the adjacent Sigma Chi fraternity from 8 to 9 o’clock in the evening. At 1:45 a.m., they went back home.
The other two victims that night were best friends Mogen and Goncalves, who had gone to a sports bar in the city at 10 p.m. and left at 1:30 a.m.
Mogen and Goncalves were captured in a livestreamed video from Twitch from The Grub Truck, a food truck four blocks away at Friendship Square (Main and Fourth Streets), chatting and smiling at 1:41 in the morning. Ten minutes later, they received their food, and then they left to take what the police initially believed to be an Uber ride home—a journey of about one mile (1.6 km).
The trip was given by a “private party,” according to the police’s revised version of events, and they got there at 1:56 in the morning. By 1:56 am, all four students had returned home. From 2:26 to 2:52 in the morning, Goncalves placed seven unanswered calls to her ex-boyfriend, a fellow student.
From 2:44 to 2:52 in the morning, Mogen contacted the boyfriend three times with the same outcomes. After looking into these calls, the police came to the conclusion that they did not think he was responsible for the crime.
The two remaining roommates were in their bedrooms on the bottom floor of the house when the murders took place; they had returned home by 1 am. They weren’t attacked or taken captive, and they didn’t wake up until later in the morning.
The four victims were sleeping on the second and third stories of the house when they were fatally murdered. The victims were not bound or gagged, and blood was all over the nearby walls.
