Search warrant for Pennsylvania home of Bryan Kohberger made public in Idaho murder case
Law enforcement officials have released details as to what exactly was found in the Pennsylvania home of Bryan Kohberger.
Police said Tuesday they had seized dark clothing, medical gloves, a flashlight and other items when they made the arrest two months ago, reports the Associated Press.
Kohberger, the 28-year-old former doctoral student at Washington State University, is charged with four counts of first-degree murder and burglary in connection with the stabbing deaths in Moscow, Idaho.
On Nov. 13, 2022, the bodies of four victims — Madison Mogen, Kaylee Goncalves, Xana Kernodle and Ethan Chapin — were found in a rental home across the street from the University of Idaho campus.
Kohberger had been residing just 7 miles west, in Pullman, Washington, where he was a graduate student studying criminology at WSU.
He continued to attend classes after the murders took place, eluding authorities for weeks. He then traveled home to eastern Pennsylvania, where he was arrested on Dec. 30.
Officials also found a “silver flashlight, four ‘medical-style gloves,’ a black Champion sweatshirt, a pair of black-and-white size 13 Nike shoes, black Under Armour socks, black Under Armour shorts and black Under Armour boxers, according to an inventory of the items,” reports the AP.
The full significance of the items is not yet clear. However, a roommate in the Idaho house who survived the attack told authorities she opened her bedroom door the morning of Nov. 13 and saw a “masked figure clad in black clothing walking past her.”
Pictures of one of the victims were also found on Kohberger’s phone, as well as evidence that Kohberger had previously tried to connect with her via social media.
According to court documents released in January, the police had seized stained bedding, strands of what looked like hair and a single glove when they searched Kohberger’s Washington State apartment.
Additional warrants are set to be made public Wednesday.
Kohberger is scheduled to have his preliminary hearing this June. He has yet to enter a plea.
