Accused Idaho killer Bryan Kohberger ‘never slept’: Neighbor
PULLMAN, Wash. — Bryan Kohberger’s downstairs neighbor says the alleged four-time killer “never slept” — and looked too weak to kill.
The neighbor, who asked to remain anonymous, told the Post on Sunday that Kohberger usually stays alone but can still be heard at odd hours.
“He’s normally a very late person, going to the bathroom and vacuuming at 1 or 12 a.m.,” she said. “I have children, so sometimes I thought about talking to him or complaining, but I never did.
“It looked like he never slept because he was always doing something all night.”
She and her husband were in shock when their upstairs neighbor was named a suspect in the brutal University of Idaho murders that rocked the community.
“I don’t know how he could kill people because he doesn’t look so tough,” she said. “We’re all PhD students here, so it takes a lot of hard work and smarts to get here. You don’t think someone like that could do something like that.
Kohberger, who was studying criminology at Washington State University’s Pullman, lived in student housing that was typically intended for doctoral students with families. He moved there in August, the neighbor said.
“At first he moved in on his own and we thought his family would come later, but he lived there alone,” she recalls.
She said she once saw someone who looked like another young student get out of Kohberger’s white car, but they split up and went to their own apartments.
The neighbor, also a graduate student, said she and the accused killer would say hello as they passed, and she once heard Kohberger bring a woman home. She didn’t see the woman, but the walls are thin, so she heard Kohberger and the woman talking.
Some residents who lived nearby told Fox News he was keeping a low profile.
“I saw him going to check his mail, that was all. Other than that, I’ve only seen him twice the whole time, and I’ve been living here since July 2021,” said Justin Williams, a 34-year-old WSU employee who lives in a building adjacent to Kohberger. FoxNews.
Police believe the accused killer acted alone, but details about what led law enforcement to him remain scarce.
Kohberger is currently in jail in Pennsylvania following his arrest at the relative’s home on Friday.
Once he appears in court in Idaho, officials can legally release Kohberger’s probable cause affidavit, which should shed light on how he was arrested nearly seven weeks after the murders. by shock.
Kohberger “looks forward to being cleared of these charges and looks forward to resolving these matters as soon as possible,” his public defender Jason LaBar said in a statement.
His family on Sunday, in a statement released by LaBar, said they are supporting their son in an effort to “promote his presumption of innocence.”
Kohberger is accused of fatally stabbing college students Kaylee Goncalves, Madison Mogen, Xana Kernodle and Ethan Chapin on November 13. Police said they have yet to locate a murder weapon.
