Two roommates survived the murders in Moscow, Idaho. And one of them told police she saw a masked man in black clothes walking past her in the house on the night of the murders.
The witness account was taken the day the bodies were found. And it did not go public until January 5 with the release of the 18-page Probable Cause Affidavit.
The court documents reveal how police identified the prime suspect. He is 28-year-old Bryan Kohberger, a criminology Ph.D. student at Washington State University.
The 4 University of Idaho students killed were Ethan Chapin, 20; Madison Mogen, 21; Xana Kernodle, 20, and Kaylee Goncalves, 21.
The time of the murders was pinpointed by events in the murder house that took place between 4 a.m. and 4:25 am.
According to the filing, Xana Kernodle received a DoorDash food order to the house at about 4 a.m. And at 4:12 Kernodle was on TikTok.
The killer was a “masked man”
Also, at approximately 4 a.m. one of the surviving roommates woke up. She said she heard what sounded like Kaylee Goncalves playing with her dog on the third floor.
