Items taken from Brian Kohberger’s apartment included a stained pillow. A disposable glove and receipts.
A pillow with “red/brown spots”. A “collection of dark red spots.” A disposable glove. At least a dozen strands of hair.
The apartment of former doctoral student Brian Kohberger, 28. Accused of killing four University of Idaho students. According to a search warrant released Wednesday.
Items taken from Kohberger’s apartment in Pullman, Washington included a stained mattress cover. A computer tower, various receipts, a dust container from. A “Bissell Power Force” vacuum cleaner, a “Fire TV” stick. with a cord and plug and described as “probably a strand of animal hair”.
Other hair samples were not specifically identified as human in the warrant. Signed by Washington State University Assistant Police Chief Don Daniels. The document does not reveal whether anyone was tested.
Investigators say it’s possible the man. Who killed the four students may have been bloodied. After the Nov. 13 massacre in the small college town of Moscow, Idaho.
Four days later Ethan Chapin, 20; Madison Mogen, 21; Xana Kernodle, 20; and Kaylee Goncalves, 21.
Police also searched Kohberger’s office at WSU, where he was working on a Ph.D. on criminal trial. And was a teaching assistant, but made no arrests, the documents reveal.
The quadruple murder shocked the nation. And baffled police for seven weeks before Kohberger was arrested.
He has not applied yet. Four counts of first-degree murder carry penalties. That can range from life in prison to the death penalty.
The document describing physical evidence seized from Kohberger’s apartment follows revelations. That police used the man’s DNA on a leather knife sheath found at a crime scene. And matched samples from the trash at the suspect’s family home in Pennsylvania — to link him to the murder.
The police could not believe that it was the murder weapon. Nor did they reveal possible motives.
