Bryan Christopher Kohberger, 28, was apprehended by local police and the FBI in Scranton, Pennsylvania, at 3 a.m. on Friday, according to a law enforcement source.
Kohberger has been charged with first-degree murder by the Moscow Police Department and the Latah County Prosecutor’s Office in the murders of Ethan Chapin, 20, Xana Kernodle, 20, Kaylee Goncalves, 21, and Madison Mogen, 21. In Monroe County Court, Kohberger is being held for extradition.
The suspect attends Washington State University in Pullman, Washington, for graduate work, according to the college’s website. Pullman is just a 15-minute drive from the rented home where the four students were fatally killed.
He received his master’s degree in criminal justice from DeSales University of Pennsylvania in May 2022.
Kohberger used social media to solicit volunteers for his study, which looked at how “emotions and psychological features influence decision-making when committing a crime.”
The odd deaths, which left the little college town of 25,000 badly shocked, first perplexed investigators.
The coroner and police suspect the four students were assaulted in their sleep between 3 and 4 a.m. with a large fixed-bladed knife.
Two female roommates who were still alive on the lowest floor appeared to have slept during the horrifying onslaught.
When the roommates called friends to the apartment just before noon, they presumed one of the victims on the second floor had passed out, according to officials.
The cops responded to a 911 call from one of the living housemates reporting an unconscious individual at 11:58 a.m. Responding cops discovered the four dead bodies on the second and third stories.
