Investigators Find Chilling Link Between Idaho Murder Victim And Kohberger In His Home During Search: Warrant
An ID connected to someone in the quadruple murders of the University of Idaho students has been found in accused murder suspect Bryan Kohberger’s residence, according to officials.
A search warrant was unsealed earlier this year and officials say police seized IDs from Kohberger’s car, but the report did not specify to whom they belonged, NewsNation reported.
“It’s a big deal. That is a smoking license,” retired FBI agent Jennifer Coffindaffer said, according to NewsNation.
Coffindaffer added, “Just like the sheath was a smoking sheath found next to Maddie with his DNA on that clasp, it’s the same thing in this situation. Why would he have an ID related to one of those people from that house?”
On Nov. 13, 2022, the bodies of Xana Kernodle, Madison Mogen, Kaylee Goncalves and Ethan Chapin were found inside the off-campus rental house they lived in, Front Page Detectives previously reported. All four victims were stabbed to death.
The details of the ID could not officially be confirmed by police since there is a gag order in the case. Attorney Mark Geragos told NewsNation that it would be a “hurdle” for the defense if it was presented in court.

Front Page Detectives previously reported police have evidence connecting Kohberger to alleged cyberstalking of someone from the residence where the four University of Idaho students were killed.
Kohberger was arrested at his parents’ home in Pennsylvania and court records show police used DNA evidence left on a knife sheath at the scene of the crime to link him to the murders, officials said.

NewsNation also reported that police have used cellphone tower data to put Kohberger near the scene of the crime right after the killings took place.
Police, however, have not been able to recover the murder weapon despite Kohberger being seen wearing latex gloves and digging through the trash before he was arrested, Front Page Detectives previously reported.
Kohberger is being investigated by authorities in Pennsylvania for his potential involvement in other outstanding homicides, NewsNation reported.
