After Bryan Kohberger’s arrest on December 30, a lawyer for one of the Idaho murder victims’ families has spoken out. Shanon Gray, who represents Kaylee Goncalves’ family, has now stated that the accused was unknown to any of the four students killed.
Gray claims that suspect Bryan Kohberger has no ties to any of the four students accused of murder. Kohberger is suspected of murdering Madison Mogen, Xana Kernodle, Ethan Chapin, and Kaylee. The 28-year-old suspect is accused of stabbing them to death while they slept in the early hours of November 13. The PhD student was charged with four counts of first-degree murder and one count of felony burglary, after his arrest. Kohberger faces the death penalty.
DNA from the scene matches a sample taken from his home, but he denies the charges and says he will prove his innocence in court. Despite the fact that the police have presented some of their evidence against him, no motive for the killings has been suggested.
The DNA evidence against Kohberger was their smoking gun; a sample found on the button snap of a knife sheath left at the scene matched the DNA taken from his family home, which could only belong to him or his father.
Kohberger was studying at the University of Washington’s School of Law when the murders occurred in November at the Pullman complex. His white Hyundai Elantra also matches the car seen driving in the area the night of the attacks, and police say he turned off his cell phone suspiciously in the hours before the attack in an alleged attempt to avoid detection.
According to the attorney representing Kaylee’s family, Kohberger did not know any of the victims. However, the probable cause affidavit filed in court last week said Kohberger paid multiple visits to the students’ home.
Kaylee’s family previously disclosed her concerns about being stalked, but no stalker has ever been identified. Kaylee’s father, Steve Goncalves, previously stated in an interview that he saw a “link” between Kohberger and the victims, but he did not elaborate.
Kohberger is scheduled to appear in court again on Thursday. Following his extradition from Pennsylvania, where he was arrested, he was denied bail in Idaho last week after a brief hearing. Kohberger has not yet entered a plea or filed a full defense, but his public defender in Pennsylvania stated that he is eager to prove his innocence. He continues to have the support of his family, who were present in court for his first appearance.
