The LATEST: State Police Hold Press Conference Following Bryan Kohberger’s Extradition Hearing

Pennsylvania State Police held a press conference on Tuesday in light of quadruple murder suspect Bryan Kohberger’s extradition hearing.

The Morning Call reported that the press conference was held at the Monroe County Courthouse. Kohberger, 28, was arrested in Pennsylvania on Friday for allegedly murdering four University of Idaho students in November.

Pennsylvania State Police Major Christopher Paris revealed that “force” was used to execute a search warrant at the Kohberger family home. The suspect’s parents were reportedly present when the raid was carried out in the middle of the night.

Paris also mentioned that windows and doors were broken while they executed the search warrant. Though 50 police officers were involved, Paris said only seven to 10 cops knew of the operation beforehand.

During the extradition hearing, it was ordered that Kohberger must be returned to Idaho within 10 days. During Tuesday’s press conference, Monroe County prosecutor Mike Mancuso speculated that Kohberger was quick to waive his extradition rights because he wants to view the probable cause affidavit, which remains sealed to the public pending his extradition to Idaho.

Despite this, Paris said Kohberger’s extradition is unlikely to occur on Tuesday.
