Search Warrant Released in Idaho Student Murders Suspect Case: According to documents made available to the public by Law & Crime Wednesday, a Washington court declassified search warrant records used to extract evidence from Bryan Kohberger’s home and workplace. Kohberger, 28, is suspected of killing four University of Idaho students in November.
“These warrants and related applications were sealed since the inquiry was so sensitive at the time. According to the court papers, the requirement to fill the Return of Service here in Washington has been eliminated since a detailed probable cause affidavit was unsealed in Latah County, Idaho.
In connection with the deadly stabbings of Kaylee Goncalves, 21, Madison Mogen, 21, Xana Kernodle, 20, and Ethan Chapin, 20, Kohberger is charged with four counts of first-degree murder. At the time of his arrest last month, the suspect resided in Pullman, Washington, and was a graduate student at the Department of Criminal Justice and Criminology at Washington State University.

“A collection of dark red” pillow cuts with a reddish-brown stain and a portion of a mattress cover with colors were among the items taken from his home. A black glove that resembles nitrate is among the additional objects reported, along with retail receipts, a Dickies tag, a few hair strands, vacuum-cleaner dust, a Fire TV stick, and a computer tower.
Nothing about possible things taken from the suspect’s office is mentioned. It is still unclear whether anything was found or whether the information related to the search warrant’s execution is still secret. According to investigators, the victims were discovered dead on November 13 at a residence outside campus, having been stabbed.
According to the probable-cause document that led to Kohberger’s arrest, investigators connected Kohberger to the crime scene after DNA on a tan leather knife sheath discovered near one of the victims was related to trash removed from Kohberger’s family home. According to two law enforcement sources briefed on the investigation, Kohberger was also the owner of a white Hyundai Elantra seen in the vicinity of the killings.

After Kohberger forfeited his right to a prompt hearing, a judge set a preliminary probable cause hearing to begin on June 26 last week. Since his extradition from Pennsylvania, where he was detained about seven weeks after the murders, he has been imprisoned without bond in the Latah County jail in Idaho. Kohberger hasn’t yet admitted guilt.
