Accused Killer Allegedly Used Deceptive Scheme to Gain Access to Victim’s Home

In a shocking development, new information has emerged in the case of the man accused of murdering four University of Idaho students. According to a report by “Dateline NBC,” Bryan Kohberger allegedly devised a sinister plan to gain access to a female colleague’s home under the pretense of helping her install security cameras. This revelation sheds light on the disturbing events surrounding the slayings of Ethan Chapin, Xana Kernodle, Madison Mogen, and Kaylee Goncalves in November.

The report indicates that Kohberger had befriended a woman at Washington State University, where he studied and worked. Months prior to the killings, he purportedly broke into her property, rearranging items without stealing anything. Subsequently, the unidentified woman reached out to Kohberger for assistance, and he suggested installing security cameras. Agreeing to his offer, she allowed him to install the cameras, providing him with her Wi-Fi password. Authorities suspect that Kohberger may have remotely accessed the footage due to his knowledge of the password.

Kohberger is set to face arraignment on Monday following his indictment by a grand jury on four counts of murder and one count of burglary related to the University of Idaho students’ deaths. Prosecutors allege that he fatally stabbed the victims during the early morning hours of November 13. An arrest affidavit reveals that cellphone tower data places him near the victims’ house multiple times in the days and weeks leading up to the killings. Prosecutors also claim that a period of cellphone inactivity suggests an attempt to conceal his movements at the time of the murders.

Furthermore, prosecutors assert that Kohberger’s DNA was found on a knife sheath discovered at the crime scene. The report from “Dateline” adds that Kohberger had purchased a KA-BAR knife and sheath from Amazon in April 2022 before relocating to Pullman, Washington, for university.

Kohberger’s arrest took place approximately six weeks after the killings at his parents’ residence in Pennsylvania. Law enforcement seized various items during the arrest, including clothing, medical gloves, and a cheek swab for DNA analysis. The warrant also reveals that Kohberger was under surveillance while in Pennsylvania, and his movements were tracked using his cellphone.

The “Dateline” report highlights an interesting observation made by one of Kohberger’s sisters. She found it peculiar that he frequently wore latex gloves inside the house. Additionally, she noted that Kohberger lived near the crime scene and drove a white Hyundai Elantra, the very car the police were seeking in their investigation.

The newly revealed details surrounding Bryan Kohberger’s actions leading up to the tragic murders of the four University of Idaho students paint a disturbing picture. As the legal proceedings unfold, the victims’ families seek justice for their loved ones whose lives were senselessly cut short.
