Bryan Kohberger, the suspect arrested in connection to the murder of the four University of Idaho students was stalking his victims for weeks according to a friend of the cop who tracked him.
The 28-year-old suspected killer also wore gloves in the grocery store weeks after the quadruple murders.
Kohberger was a Ph.D. student in the Department of Criminal Justice and Criminology at Washington State University in Pullman, Washington.
Law enforcement was tracking Kohberger from Idaho to Pennsylvania but the suspected killer was taking extra measures to not leave any fingerprints behind.
Kohberger wore gloves in public at grocery stores after he allegedly committed the quadruple murders.
Kaylee Goncalves’ father said there was a connection between Kohberger and his daughter, however it is unclear what that connection is at this time because he didn’t elaborate.
The friend of the police officer who tracked Kohberger said the suspected killer stalked his victims prior to allegedly stabbing them to death.
The Daily Mail reported:
The man accused of the horrific slayings of four University of Idaho students was allegedly stalking them in the weeks leading up to the murders and wore gloves in public places after the killings.
Bryan Kohberger, 28, was fastidious about not leaving his fingerprints behind after the murders, even wearing gloves when he entered a grocery store, according to a friend of one of the police officers assigned to follow him there.
‘He’s not stupid and has been very careful,’ the anonymous source said.
While Kohberger was under surveillance in Pennsylvania, according to the source, police witnessed him appearing to try and avoid leaving any more DNA or fingerprints behind by taking protective measures in public.
‘A good friend of ours was one of the cops who has been following him the last couple days he,’ the source explained of their connection to the surveillance on Kohberger in Pennsylvania.
‘He followed him into a Giant (local grocery store) and wore gloves the entire time.’
They also allege that the prime suspect was stalking his victims ahead of the murders – with their cell phone locations matching up on several occasions.
‘Not sure if they ever interacted – but his cell phone pings followed their every move for weeks.’
Fellow classmates and people who knew Kohberger described him as an oddball who was bullied and in return bullied others.
According to one report, waitresses at a local brewery in Pennsylvania were creeped out by Bryan Kohberger after he called one of them a “bitch” for rejecting his advances.
Kohberger was charged with four counts of first-degree murder for allegedly fatally stabbing 20-year-old Ethan Chapin of Conway, Washington; 21-year-old Madison Mogen of Coeur d’Alene, Idaho; 20-year-old Xana Kernodle of Avondale, Arizona; and 21-year-old Kaylee Goncalves of Rathdrum, Idaho on November 13.
Kohberger, who was arrested at his family’s home in PA on Friday, is expected to plead not guilty to the charges according to a public defender in Pennsylvania representing the suspected killer during the extradition process to Idaho.
Kohberger plans to waive the extradition hearing which was scheduled for January 3rd, according to Monroe County Chief Public Defender Jason LaBar.
Another classmate from DeSales University said Kohberger often interrupted the professor who was teaching a class on serial killers and believed he knew more than the professor.
