Bryan Kohberger stands accused of killing four University of Idaho students in November 2022. He was arrested at his parents’ home in Pennsylvania, roughly six weeks after the fatal stabbings. Police sources in Pennsylvania are now allegedly investigating him for potential involvement in other unsolved homicides.

The bodies of Xana Kernodle, Ethan Chapin, Madison Mogen, and Kaylee Goncalves were found on November 13. They were discovered by roommates inside the off-campus rental house where they lived. All four victims had been stabbed to death.

 Kernodle and Chapin were killed on the second floor. And Mogen and Goncalves were murdered on the third floor. 

Circumstantial evidence mounts

Kohberger was arrested when DNA left on a knife sheath at the scene linked him to the crime.

In addition to the DNA evidence found on the knife sheath, police also obtained cellphone tower data that placed Kohberger near the scene of the crime immediately after the killings.

Prosecutors have not disclosed a motive for the murders. But there is currently a strict gag order issued by the judge on, which law enforcement and attorneys from discussing the case.
