Authorities have yet to divulge essential details in the case three days after the arrest of a suspect in the deadly stabbing of four University of Idaho students, from whether the culprit knew the victims. The deaths shocked Moscow, Idaho, a college town that hadn’t seen a murder in seven years. Some residents became upset with the minimal information officials released as their investigation progressed. James Fry said Friday, the day authorities reported Kohberger’s arrest in his home, that this was partly due to state legislation, which limits what information authorities can divulge before the suspect makes an initial appearance.

Relationship of the Suspect to the Victims:

Authorities have not disclosed whether Kohberger knew any of the victims, who were discovered dead hours after a Saturday night out: According to sources, Chapin and Kernodle had gone to a party on campus earlier that night, while Mogen and Goncalves went to a downtown pub before getting food from a late-night food truck. Fry said on Friday that Kohberger lived nearby: He was a student in the criminal justice programme at Washington State University’s Pullman campus, roughly 15 minutes west of Moscow. Washington State University acknowledged Kohberger was a graduate student there in a statement last week, adding that the school’s police department assisted Idaho law enforcement in executing search warrants.

The Alleged Motive of the Suspect:

Investigators have also not revealed why Kohberger allegedly carried out the stabbings. A former senior FBI profiler described Kohberger’s criminal justice and criminology studies as a Washington State University student “extremely interesting” in the days following his arrest. “In other situations, perpetrators were in areas of study that more or less prepared them to commit a crime,” Mary Ellen O’Toole. If he’s guilty, Kohberger’s “field of study is not a result,” she said, emphasising that studying the criminal mentality did not “lead him to do this.”

How the Suspect Escaped After Seven Weeks?

It’s also unclear why Kohberger wasn’t apprehended until more than six weeks after discovering the victims’ bodies. Fry would specify when Kohberger came into police enforcement’s radar on Saturday, saying facts in the case would be released in due course. Kohberger returned to Pennsylvania for the holidays, according to public defence Jason LaBar, who added that the suspect and his father accompanied his son on the cross-country drive. Another law enforcement source told CNN that the suspect drove the car to his parents’ residence and that “we were zeroing down on him being in or heading to Pennsylvania sometime before Christmas.”

“We’re going to stare this person in the eyes. “Goncalves said, adding that he planned to attend the suspect’s court appearances. “He hasn’t dealt with us, and it will not stop.” Authorities continue to seek information from the public. According to Fry, authorities received 400 calls within an hour of announcing the arrest. “We want information on that person,” Fry said on Saturday. “We need up-to-date information to start putting together that picture immediately. Every tip counts.”
