The two traffic stops of the white Elantra driven by suspected murderer Bryan Kohberger were reportedly carried out at the direction of an FBI surveillance team that was seeking video images of the alleged killer’s hands.
FOX News Digital reports that a law enforcement source told them that the FBI surveillance team tracked the murder suspect and his father during the cross-country drive from Washington to Pennsylvania and requested Indiana police to stop the vehicle.
The law enforcement source told FOX News the FBI was “seeking video images of Kohberger as well as his hands.”
The first stop happened at 10:41 a.m. on December 15. In body cam footage, the officer tells Kohberger and his father that he pulled the vehicle over for following a van too closely. The officer let Kohberger off with a warning.
Minutes later, the car was pulled over again by another police officer, and again was let off with a warning.
The law enforcement source told Fox News Digital that investigators were still building their case against Kohberger when the traffic stops occurred.
