Family of Idaho murder suspect releases statement

The family of Idaho murder suspect Bryan Kohberger released a statement pledging to cooperate with law enforcement “in an attempt to seek the truth and promote his presumption of innocence.”

Kohberger was arrested last week at northeastern Pennsylvania for the deaths of four University of Idaho students – Kaylee Goncalves, Xana Kernodle, Madison Mogen and Ethan Chapin — who were found stabbed to death in their bed at an off-campus house in November.

He is currently being held without bail for extradition to Idaho on four counts of first degree murder and burglary.

Sunday his family released a statement to the media who started by saying they care “Deeply for the four families who lost their precious children. There are no words that can adequately express the sadness we feel, and we pray for them every day.

The family went on to explain that they “will continue to let the legal process unfold and that as a family we will love and support our son and our brother.”

According to the statement, the family has “cooperated fully with law enforcement in attempting to see the truth and promote their presumption of innocence rather than judging unknown facts and making faulty assumptions.”

The family then asked for confidentiality “in this matter because our family and the families who suffer loss can move forward in the legal process.”

Investigators believe Kohberger broke into the University of Idaho student house “with intent to commit murder.”

Kohberger’s attorney, chief public defender Jason LaBar, said his client plans to tell a Pennsylvania judge that he will waive his extradition hearing so he can be quickly brought to Idaho to face to the charges and that he wishes to be exonerated.
