Family of Brian Kohberger Releases Statement That We Should “Presume Innocence” In Case of The Murders of Four Idaho College Students


Nearly two months after the night of the horrifically tragic mass murder of four Idaho college students, the alleged killer sits in a jail cell in Idaho waiting for his case to be heard. Brian Kohberger was arrested in at his parents home in Pennsylvania on December 30, 2022. After being extradited to Idaho, Kohberger appeared for the first time in court last week facing five charges – four counts of first-degree murder and one count of felony burglary. The twenty-eight year old Criminology Ph.D. student is facing the maximum penalty – the death penalty or life imprisonment. Kohberger’s parents released a statement on expressing their sincerest sympathy for the the victims’ families, and stating that they would stand by their son’s side as they cooperated with the legal system,

“First and foremost wee care deeply for the four families who have lost their precious children. There are no words that can adequately express the sadness we feel, and we pray every day for them. We will continue to let the legal process unfold and as a family we will love and support our son and brother. We have fully cooperated with law enforcement agencies in an attempt to seek the truth and promote his presumption of innocence rather than judge unknown facts and make erroneous assumptions. We respect privacy in this matter as our family and the families suffering loss can move forward through the legal process.”
