Authorities in Pennsylvania say that when police arrested Idaho University murder suspect Bryan Kohberger in his parents’ home two months ago, he was wearing latex gloves and separating his personal trash from the family’s kitchen garbage, placing his own refuse into several sealable plastic baggies.

Kohberger faces first-degree murder charges in the November 2022 deaths of four students: Ethan Chapin, 20, Xana Kernel, 20, Kaylee Goncalves, 21, and Madison Mogen, 21. Each of the four was stabbed to death at an off-campus house located on King Road in the early morning hours of Nov. 13.

While Magistrate Judge Megan Marshall of Latah County, Idaho, issued a sweeping gag order preventing investigators, witnesses, and attorneys for both sides from publicly discussing any aspects of the case, prosecutors in Pennsylvania — where Kohberger’s parents live — offered new details about the investigation in an interview with local news outlet BRC-TV last week.
