Bryan Kohberger Possibly Returned to Quadruple Murder Scene Hours After Slayings

Washington State University student Bryan Kohberger possibly returned to the home where he allegedly killed four University of Idaho students in November.

A probable cause affidavit alleged that cell phone data placed Kohberger near the Moscow, Idaho, home three times on the afternoon of November 13, hours after the four victims were fatally stabbed. Phone data reportedly also suggests Kohberger was in the vicinity 12 times prior to the quadruple slaying.

Kohberger, a Ph.D. criminology student at Washington State University, reportedly lives 10 miles from the victims’ home. While Kohberger is believed to have turned off his phone during the murders, police said a knife sheath found at the crime scene had his DNA on it.

The probable cause affidavit also alleged that campus police at Kohberger’s college alerted Moscow police to his white 2015 Hyundai Elantra, which apparently resembles a car seen at the victims’ home around the time they were killed. Surveillance footage reportedly showed a white four-door sedan, but it did not capture its front license plate. At the time of the killings, Kohberger’s car was registered in Pennsylvania, which does not require front plates.

Kohberger was arrested in Pennsylvania on December 30, after taking a cross-country trip with his father from Idaho. During their trip, Indiana police pulled over the pair twice. Sources claimed the FBI requested the traffic stops in hopes of viewing possible injuries on Kohberger’s hands.

Kohberger was extradited to Idaho on Thursday. He remains jailed without bail.
