Idaho Murder Suspect Bryan Kohberger ‘Eager To Be Exonerated’

The murder suspect in the University of Idaho stabbings is “looking forward to being exonerated,” according to his attorney. Bryan Kohberger, 28, is suspected and intends to renounce his right to an extradition hearing in order to be returned to Idaho to face charges, according to Jason LaBar, a public defender for Monroe County, Pennsylvania, who spoke to The Washington Post on Saturday.

He’s prepared to waive because he anticipates being cleared. LaBar stated, “Those were his exact words.


Kohberger is accused of killing four University of Idaho students in November on four counts of first-degree murder and one count of felony burglary. On November 13, the students’ bodies were discovered in a rental house in Moscow, close to the university.

As authorities searched for suspects, their deaths stunned the university and attracted attention nationwide. The lack of solid leads to identify a suspect for weeks following the deaths, up until Kohberger’s arrest on Friday in Pennsylvania, earned local officials some flak from the public.


According to officials, the probable cause affidavit that led to Kohberger’s arrest must be kept sealed in accordance with Idaho law until Kohberger has appeared in state court.

Although officials have 10 days to transport Kohberger, LaBar stated that he thought Kohberger would arrive in Idaho within 72 hours of the extradition hearing, which is slated on Tuesday.

According to the Post, LaBar’s sole responsibility is to represent Kohberger in the Pennsylvania extradition procedure. He claimed to have spoken with Kohberger on the phone for 20 minutes on Saturday and in person for an hour on Friday.

According to officials, some of the four victims, 20-year-olds Xana Kernodle and Ethan Chapin and 21-year-olds Madison Mogen and Kaylee Goncalves, were found in their beds with defensive wounds. They have asserted that they think the students were the target.

Kohberger is a doctoral candidate in the department of criminal justice and criminology at Washington State University. He recently finished his first semester in that program.

In addition, Kohberger’s white Hyundai Elantra was seized by authorities. They had been hunting for a car that matched that description that was allegedly around the residence at the time of the stabbings, according to witnesses.
