AGE AND WIKIPEDIA: Shooter suspect, Bryan Christopher Kohberger, is a 28-year-old man who killed 4 Idaho University students

Information reaching Kossyderrickent has it that Shooter suspect, Bryan Christopher Kohberger, is a 28-year-old man who killed 4 Idaho University students. 


The man arrested in Pennsylvania in connection to the Idaho murders is 28 year old Bryan Christopher Kohberger.

A law enforcement official confirmed the arrest to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because they could not publicly discuss details of the investigation before a 4 p.m. Eastern press conference. The arrest was also reported by ABC and NBC News, citing law enforcement sources.

News of the arrest broke hours after Moscow police announced they would hold a Friday afternoon press conference to announce developments in the Nov. 13 stabbing deaths of Ethan Chapin, Madison Mogen, Kaylee Goncalves, and Xana Kernodle.  

The unsettling nighttime attack — police said the four were all likely asleep when they were stabbed — touched off a wave of fear across the 26,000-person town where homicides are rare.Police and prosecutors had previously indicated they knew of no motive for the brutal attack at the off-campus rental home, and released few details about the murder weapon. A small army of federal and state investigators have been assisting in the case, processing thousands of tips and videos.

In particular, investigators for weeks have been looking for a white Hyundai Elantra 2011-2013 model.

On Thursday, Moscow police chief James Fry released a video statement saying the house was being turned over to a commercial crime-scene remediation team to remove biohazards like blood and forensic chemicals used by investigators.

"We've received a lot more tips here recently and we're continuing to investigate and follow up on those," Fry said Thursday. "We want to thank the community for all of their help and and thank all the people across the nation for all the help they have given us."

Police initially said the deaths were an "isolated targeted attack," without offering specifics why, and said there was "no imminent threat" to anyone else. Fry then backtracked on Nov. 16, saying, "We cannot say there’s no threat to the community and as we have stated, please stay vigilant, report any suspicious activity and be aware of your surroundings at all times."

The uncertainty prompted many students at the University of Idaho to switch to online classes for the remainder of the semester.


28-year-old Bryan Kohberger was being held for extradition in a criminal homicide investigation based on an active arrest warrant for first degree murder issued by the Moscow Police Department and Latah County Prosecutor’s Office.

Multiple law enforcement sources with knowledge of the investigation said a 25-year-old man was arrested in Scranton, Pennsylvania, in connection with the stabbing deaths of four University of Idaho students, whose bodies were discovered in a rental home near campus last month.

Police say they have cracked the case of the quadruple murder at the University of Idaho -- because a suspect is now in custody ... this according to multiple reports.

A 28-year-old man was taken into custody by the FBI and police outside Scranton, Pennsylvania at 3 AM Friday. The suspect is a college student but does not attend the University of Idaho ... this according to FOX news sources.

ABC News in Philadelphia says a swat team entered the place where the suspect was staying and took him into custody. Bryan Kohberger, according to the AP, and he's being held for extradition in a "homicide investigation for first degree murder." The arrest warrant was issued by the Moscow PD, which has jurisdiction over the murder case.

The suspect appeared in court Friday morning ... law enforcement sources tell TMZ the man was arraigned on charges of being fugitive from justice.

As you know, Ethan Chapin, Xana Kernodle, Kaylee Goncalves and Madison Mogen were stabbed to death November 13th in the middle of the night as they slept.

Moscow PD is holding a news conference Friday at 4 PM ET. We will live stream it. FOX News has reported that a man in his mid-20s was taken into custody by local police and the FBI at 3 a.m. in Scranton, Pennsylvania.

The suspect is a college student but does not attend the University of Idaho, the source added. 

Back on Nov. 13, Ethan Chapin, 20, Xana Kernodle, 20, Kaylee Goncalves, 21, and Madison Mogen, 21, were stabbed to death in the early morning hours in a rental home just yards from campus.

The killings stunned bucolic Moscow, a college town and agricultural center that got its first Target store last year. The city, population of 26,000, is surrounded by rolling wheat and bean fields and had not seen a homicide since 2015.

The investigation has garnered nationwide attention with online sleuths raising speculation on what happened to the four students. The Moscow Police Department, FBI and Idaho State Police have been investigating for weeks to solve the case.

There will be a press conference out of Moscow at 1 p.m. A law enforcement official confirmed the arrest to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because they could not publicly discuss details of the investigation ahead of a formal announcement expected later Friday.

The students — Kaylee Goncalves, Madison Mogen, Xana Kernodle and Ethan Chapin — were stabbed to death at a rental home near campus sometime in the early morning hours of Nov. 13. The slayings initially mystified law enforcement, with investigators unable to name a suspect or locate a murder weapon for weeks.

But the case broke open after law enforcement asked the public for help finding a white sedan seen near the home around the time of the killings. The Moscow Police Department made the request Dec. 7, and by the next day had to direct tips to a special FBI call center because so many were coming in.

Goncalves, 21, of Rathdrum, Idaho; Mogen, 21, of Coeur d’Alene, Idaho; Kernodle, 20, of Post Falls, Idaho; and Chapin, 20, of Mount Vernon, Washington, were members of the university’s Greek system and close friends. Mogen, Goncalves and Kernodle lived in the three-story rental home with two other roommates. Kernodle and Chapin were dating and he was visiting the house that night.

Autopsies showed all four were likely asleep when they were attacked. Some had defensive wounds and each was stabbed multiple times. There was no sign of sexual assault, police said.

The stabbing deaths shook the small town of Moscow, Idaho, a farming community of about 25,000 people — including roughly 11,000 students — tucked in the rolling hills of the northern Idaho’s Palouse region.

Fears of a repeat attack prompted nearly half of the University of Idaho students to switch to online classes for the remainder of the semester, abandoning dorms and apartments in the normally bucolic town for the perceived safety of their hometowns. Safety concerns also had the university hiring an additional security firm to escort students across campus and the Idaho State Police sending troopers to help patrol the city’s streets.

Monroe County is located in eastern Pennsylvania in the Pocono Mountains. The county seat, Stroudsburg, is about 100 miles (161 kilometers) north of Philadelphia.
