Nancy Grace: Accused Idaho College Killer Likely Stalked Victims for Weeks, ‘Looking in windows’ Before ‘Methodically’ Killing Them

CrimeOnline’s Nancy Grace says a probable cause concerning accused Idaho college killer, Bryan Kohberger, could show that he stalked and spied prior to brutally stabbing four students dead at their rental home near the University of Idaho in Moscow.

“We will learn [Kohberger] was around the victims very often based on cellphone tracking,” Grace told Fox News Digital. “Spying on them, stalking them; wherever they went, he was there looking in their windows, watching them, maybe at the food truck or wherever they went and learning their patterns.”

“I believe that he stalked them for weeks before he went in methodically and murdered them.”

As CrimeOnline previously reported, police believe 28-year-old Kohberger is responsible for the deaths of Kaylee Goncalves, Maddie Mogen, Xana Kernodle, and Ethan Chapin, who were found stabbed to death on November 13.

Police arrested Kohberger On December 10, at his parents’ house in Albrightsville, Pennsylvania, more than 2,000 miles away from the murder scene.

Kohberger is a first-year Ph.D. student at Washington State University in Pullman, Washington, a short drive across the state border from Moscow. He was reportedly studying criminal justice and criminology at Washington State University.

He also studied under Dr. Katherine Ramsland, who closely studied Dennis Rader, also known as the BTK killer who murdered at least 10 people between 1974 to 1991. Ramsland collaborated with Rader, and in 2016, published the book, “Confession of a Serial Killer: The Untold Story of Dennis Rader, the BTK Killer.”

Investigators said the killer used a sharp-edged weapon to stab the sleeping victims, and a coroner said at least one of the victims had defensive wounds.

“It reminds me of BTK killer, Dennis Rader,” Grace said. “[He] would spy on his victims, affect an entry, and then, take his time killing them.”

Kohberger waived his extradition Tuesday in Pennsylvania. He’s on his way back to Idaho, where he’ll face murder and burglary charges.

On Wednesday, Magistrate Judge Megan E. Marshall barred “investigators, law enforcement personnel, attorneys, and agents of the prosecuting attorney or defense attorney” from making any statements outside the court “other than a quotation from or reference to, without comment, the public records of the case.”
