ID Linked to Idaho College Murders Reportedly Found in Bryan Kohberger’s Home

Police searching Bryan Kohberger’s residences found an ID linked to someone from the Idaho college murders, NewsNation reports.

Few details are known publicly about the ID. It was discovered while law enforcement searched either Kohberger’s apartment in Pullman, Washington, or his parent’s house in Pennsylvania, where he was arrested, according to the news outlet.

The ID is reportedly linked to someone from the home in Moscow, Idaho, where University of Idaho students Kaylee Goncalves, Maddie Mogen, Xana Kernodle and Ethan Chapin were found stabbed to death on November 13.

Earlier this year, unsealed search warrant records showed that police seized IDs from Kohberger’s vehicle, but the documents did not detail whose names were on the IDs.

No other news outlet has independently reported that police found an ID connected to the Moscow home in Kohberger’s possession, and NewsNation did not identify its sources to attribute the reporting.

Investigators could not confirm to NewsNation the revelation about the ID because of a gag order preventing public communication about the case by the authorities involved.

However, retired FBI agent Jennifer Coffindaffer told NewsNation that if Kohberger indeed had an ID from someone in the Moscow home, that is a major piece of evidence.

“It’s a big deal. That is a smoking license,” Coffindaffer told the news outlet. “Just like the sheath was a smoking sheath found next to Maddie with his DNA on that clasp, it’s the same thing in this situation. Why would he have an ID related to one of those people from that house?”

The news outlet also reported that authorities have evidence potentially connecting Kohberger to apparent cyberstalking of someone at the Moscow crime scene.

In addition, police are said to be investigating whether Kohberger was involved in any homicides in Pennsylvania, according to NewsNation.

Authorities arrested Kohberger on December 30 at his parents’ home in Pennsylvania, more than 2,000 miles away from the crime scene.

At the time of the killings, Kohberger was a first-year Ph.D. student at Washington State University in Pullman, Washington, in the school’s Department of Criminal Justice and Criminology. Pullman is located about 9 miles across the Washington-Idaho border from Moscow.

Kohberger is facing four counts of first-degree murder and one count of felony burglary. He is scheduled to appear in court for a preliminary hearing on June 26.
