Police chief investigating Idaho murders says he believes suspect Bryan Kohberger acted ALONE – after alleged killer asked cops if they’d apprehended anyone else on being arrested
- Chief James Fry said police believed they have the ‘individual who committed these crimes’ in custody
- Bryan Kohberger, 28, a criminology student, was arrested on Friday in PA for the murder of the four University of Idaho students
- Victims Kaylee Goncalves, 21, Maddie Mogen, 21, Xana Kernodle, 20, and 20-year-old Ethan Chapin were killed on November 13
The Moscow Police Chief said he believed the murder suspect acted alone despite the alleged killer asking cops if they had apprehended anyone else.
Bryan Kohberger, 28, a criminology student at Washington State University, was arrested on Friday in Pennsylvania, more than 2,000 miles from where four university students were killed in their beds.
Victims Kaylee Goncalves, 21, Maddie Mogen, 21, Xana Kernodle, 20, and 20-year-old Ethan Chapin were killed on November 13.
After being arrested, Kohberger asked police if they had apprehended anyone else for the murder.
However, Moscow Chief James Fry said he believes ‘we have the individual that committed these crimes.’
Although Fry could not comment on whether or not Kohberger had ‘targeted’ the group of students, who did not live far from him, or if the murders were ‘premediated.’
Fry could not reveal much about the case, as Idaho state law prohibits officers from releasing information until the criminology student has made his first court appearance in Idaho.
He did, however, say it was ‘disappointing’ to learn that the alleged murderer was a studying criminology, as this is ‘not something we want in our profession.’
‘We hold ourselves to a higher standard, we hold ourselves to an ethical standard,’ he told Fox News. ‘But we can’t pick and choose what people study.’
Kohberger has agreed to be extradited to Idaho from Pennsylvania. His attorney said he is shocked by the arrest and plans on denying the murders.
Since the 4pm press conference yesterday, Fry revealed the department received more than 400 tips about the case.
