Suspect Arrested in Killing of 4 University of Idaho Students

31 December 2022, Saturday
Bryan Christopher Kohberger, 28, was apprehended by the authorities on Friday, as a potential perpetrator in the murders of four University of Idaho students. This arrest provides progress in a case that was difficult for investigators to wrap their heads around as it took weeks for them to locate a murder weapon or reach out for assistance from the public.

On Sunday, Nov. 13, police responded to reports of an unconscious person and later discovered four students - Ethan Chapin, Xana Kernodle, Madison Mogen and Kaylee Goncalves - dead at an off-campus home. Tyler Kohberger has been arrested and is facing four counts of first-degree murder and one felony burglary charge in relation to their deaths.

At a Friday press conference, the officials declared that they wouldn't make any further comments to the public until the inquiry progresses.
"This is not the end of this investigation, but rather, the start of a new one," Bill Thompson, the prosecutor of Latah County where the University of Idaho lies, declared. "You all now know the name of the person who's been charged with these offenses."

The population of Moscow, Idaho, a college and agricultural town, was shocked by the incident that took place there. Approximately 25,000 people reside in this small town; of them, 11,000 are students. Chief of Police James Fry gave his thanks to the Idaho community and those across the country who gave information for the investigation of the murders. He expressed his appreciation for the support.

"It won't ever bring these kids back," Fry commented. "But we do trust that justice will be served by the legal process."
No further information was given about a potential cause.

Ethan Chapin, a freshman from Mount Vernon, Wash. and member of the Sigma Chi fraternity at the University of Idaho, was one of the four victims publicly identified by the Moscow Police Department. He was majoring in recreation, sport and tourism management.
