Idaho College Murders: Accused Killer Bryan Kohberger May Have Targeted Victims As Far Back As 2021: Officials
Authorities have released court documents which appear to show accused murder suspect Bryan Kohberger made contact with the University of Idaho victims on social media as far back as 2021, according to authorities.
A former FBI agent noted search warrants recently executed by Idaho authorities ordered TikTok and Google to turn over user history data dating back to January 2021 of three of the four victims: Madison Mogen, 21, Kaylee Goncalves, 21, and Xana Kernodle, 20, the New York Post reported.
From the court documents, it appears police did not ask to see the history for Ethan Chapin, who, along with the three young women, was brutally stabbed to death in Moscow, Idaho, last November.
Retired FBI agent Jennifer Coffindaffer shared the details on her Twitter, and she pointed out that the warrants suggest police could be looking for a connection between Kohberger, 28, and his alleged victims that dates back before the murders occurred, the New York Post wrote.
Coffindaffer wrote: “Interesting how far the [search warrants] went back in time? Why 1/2021? Did Bryan Kohberger somehow meet Kaylee or Maddie on a possible school visit early on?”

Kohberger was arrested in December for the quadruple murder, but police have not disclosed his possible connection to the victims and no possible motive for the slayings has been disclosed.
The suspect lived just miles away from the University of Idaho off-campus home where the four victims were killed.

Kohberger was a graduate student in criminology at Washington State University before he was arrested, officials said. He has pleaded not guilty to the four murder charges against him.
As Front Page Detectives previously reported, Kohberger is receiving “nonstop” threats from fellow inmates at Latah County Jail and he is receiving weekly one-on-one religious counseling sessions with ministers from Project Hope Idaho.
