The family of Idaho college murders suspect Bryan Kohberger has not visited him in jail since he was arrested last year in connection with the off-campus stabbing of four students, according to sources.
According to NewsNation, Kohberger's parents, who live in Pennsylvania, have spoken with their son via phone, but they have refrained from making any in-person visits.
Sources reported that Kohberger is generally a well-behaved inmate who normally remains confined to his cell, NewsNation reported.
In November 2022, Kohberger, 28, was studying for a Ph.D. in criminology at Washington State University when police believe he broke into a home in Moscow, Idaho, and fatally stabbed four students — Kaylee Goncalves, 21; Madison Mogen, 21; Xana Kernodle, 20; and Kernodle's boyfriend, Ethan Chapin, 20.
