Who is Bryan Christopher Kohberger?
Bryan Christopher Kohberger, 28, was detained after a SWAT team raid in Scranton, Pennsylvania, around 3 a.m. today, according to to arrest records acquired by DailyMail.com. 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, Xana Kernodle, Kaylee Goncalves, and Madison Mogen.
According To the College:
According to the college’s website, the suspect is a graduate student at Washington State University in Pullman, Washington. 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 stabbed multiple times in the body while sleeping with a sizeable fixed-bladed knife between 3 and 4 a.m. Two female roommates still alive on the lowest floor appeared to have slept during the horrifying onslaught.

Responding cops discovered the four dead bodies on the second and third stories.
