The Murders of the four Idaho University Students

November 13, 2022 was the night of the 4 murders in the State of Idaho. The victims are Kylee Goncalves, she was 21 years old, born in Rathdrum, Idaho. Madison Mogen she was also 21 years old, born in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho. Xana Kernodle, 20 years old, born in Post Falls, Idaho. Ethan Chapin is also 20 years old, born in Mount Vernon, Washington. More than 6 weeks after the four University of Idaho students were mysteriously stabbed to death in a house near the Moscow, Idaho, campus, a suspect was identified, named Bryan Kohberger and was taken into custody. Kohberger was identified as the person who committed this horrible crime, the police identified him because of his white Hyundai Elantra which was seen in a surveillance video after the murders. The Moscow police department said that Bryan Kohberger went by the victim’s house three times, before entering the area a fourth time at 4:04 a.m. Kohbergers phone showed that he was heading to Moscow before the murders, his phone was off from 2:47 a.m to 4:48 a.m, the affidavit said that ‘’is consistent with Kohberger attempting to conceal his location during the quadruple homicide.’’ Kohbergers phone records indicate that he went back to the house after 9 a.m., just five hours after the homicide murders; this is based on what the affidavit showed. The victims were stabbed multiple times, some of them had defensive wounds, and there was no sign of sexual assault, police said. Kohberger is facing four counts of first-degree murder in the fatal stabbing of three women and one man. 

At this point know one knows if Kohberger knew the victims but we do know that he followed them on Instagram but none of the victims followed him back. Bryan Kohberger is a 28-year-old man, studying Ph.D. in criminology, and was teaching assistant in the Department of Criminal Justice at Washington State University. Until this day we don’t know the reason/reasons why he killed four beautiful souls. Goncalves and Mogen were lifelong, best friends to the point that they went to the same high school, they graduated together, and they even went to the same University. They lived in the same house and they both were found in the same bed, both girls died together, Alivea Goncalves Kylee Goncalves’s sister stated that ‘’These girls were ultimate best friends’’ 

Meanwhile, we know so far that there were 2 other roommates living in the same house. We also know that the 2 two surviving roommates called friends over November 13, because they thought one of the victims on the second floor had passed out and wasn’t waking up. At 11:58 a.m. the roommate’s call 911 requesting help for an unconscious person, police said. Authorities said that they do not think anyone at the house was involved in these murders at the time of the 911 call.
