Bryan Kohberger’s Childhood Friend Reveals New Details About Idaho Killer

The 28-year-man charged with the brutal murders of four University of Idaho students as they were sleeping is due in court on Tuesday.

Bryan Kohberger now faces four counts of first-degree murder. He was arrested on Friday in Pennsylvania, thousands of miles from the crime scene.

His attorney said he’ll waive his extradition hearing because he’s “eager to be exonerated.”

Now, a childhood friend is revealing new details about the 28-year-old graduate student accused in the brutal stabbings.

Kohberger’s childhood friend, Thomas, spoke to ABC News, describing the Idaho murder suspect as “mean” in high school, saying Kohberger was eager to be seen as dominant.

“He would, like, grapple me and like, put me in headlocks and arm bars and stuff like that,” Thomas said.

Kohberger’s family released a statement, which reads:

“First and foremost we care deeply for the four families who have lost their precious children. There are no words that can adequately express the sadness we feel, and we pray each day for them. We will continue to let the legal process unfold and as a family we will love and support our son and brother. We have fully cooperated with law enforcement agencies in an attempt to seek the truth and promote his presumption of innocence rather than judge unknown facts and make erroneous assumptions. We respect privacy in this matter as our family and the families suffering loss can move forward through the legal process.”

The small community in Moscow, Idaho, has been terrified for weeks after roommates Kaylee Goncalves, 21; Madison Mogen, 21; Xana Kernodle, 20; and Ethan Chapin, 20, were found stabbed to death in their off campus residence in November.

Kohberger’s lawyer said Bryan’s father flew from his home in the Poconos to Washington state for a pre-planned cross country road trip back home to Pennsylvania in that white Hyundai Elantra.

“Driving cross country took them about two and a half days. Mr. Kohberger indicated that Bryan was acting normal and not out of character during that drive from Washington,” the lawyer said.

The car seized from the Kohberger’s home after Bryan was arrested early Friday morning.

The Monroe County chief public defender said Kohberger is eager to return to Idaho and to be exonerated.

However, police in Moscow said they are confident they’ve arrested the only person responsible for the murders. Still, they are searching for a murder weapon they describe as a fixed blade knife. The police chief said now that the community has a name and a face, they are hoping more people will come forward with information.

“We have a lot of work to do still, that’s why were asking people if you knew this individual contact us,” he said.

    In regard to the weapon…There used to be a woman from St Louis that was a psychic that helped police departments. I don’t know if she is still alive but her success rate was amazing. As I recall, she used maps to locate both people and evidence.
    I am sure the St Louis detective department will know of her.

    WE NEED A MAJOR COMEBACK WITH THE DEATH PENALTY. WE SHOULD BE KILLING THESE MURDERERS, MOLESTERS, TERRORISTS, DRUG DEALERS DAILY.

    Look deeper into the family. These type of families breed monsters.
    I say this because of the above statement from the family which is suffering
    from a nation wide pandemic of “DD” (Denial Disease). This is brought on by
    taking God out of your life. Dems, WOKE-a-dopers, perverts and no bail
    money have encourage this. And it’s not going to stop.

    Chaos, denial, cover up, Dems are the order of the day.
