Idaho Murders: Authorities have arrested a 28-year old man in the Pocono Mountains in connection with the Moscow, Idaho college murders
Idaho Murders: A 28-year old man has been arrested in Pennsylvania in connection with the stabbing deaths of four University of Idaho students last month.
Suspect Arrested in the Poconos for Idaho Murders
In case you’ve been living under a rock, four friends, 21-year-olds Madison Mogen and Kaylee Goncalves, and 20-year-olds Xana Kernodle and Ethan Chapin, were found brutally stabbed to death in their college home in Moscow, Idaho on November 13th.
We discussed it in detail on the Grease the Poles Podcast around the time of the murders.
Until today, no suspect has been named and very little information regarding the case has been released since.
According to reports, a 28-year old man was taken into custody by local police and the FBI at 3AM in Scranton, Pennsylvania, law enforcement officials announced Friday morning. The suspect is a college student but does not attend the University of Idaho. A press conference is scheduled in Moscow, Idaho at 1PM local (4PM here) to announce the major break in the case.
Update: Bryan Kohberger, DOB 11/21/94, has been arrested by Pennsylvania State Police and the FBI in connection with the Idaho murders. Kohberger appeared before a judge in Pennsylvania today and will be extradited to Idaho where he will face criminal charges.
Over the past few weeks while true crime influencers on social media were speculating on the killer, it was believed that officials were going to track down suspect soon and there was good reason they were providing little-to-no information on the case.
Now, we have our first suspect found in the Pocono Mountains near Scranton, Pennsylvania. Absolutely insane.
We’ll be back with more information following the 1PM local (4PM here) press conference.
