The suspect in the murder of four college students in Idaho, Bryan Kohberger, 28, is alleged to have broken into a female colleague’s apartment while she wasn’t home, not taking anything but moving around belongings as part of a ploy to get her to ask for his help. 

According to Dateline, the accused killer befriended the woman at Washington State University in Pullman, Washington, where he was a Ph.D. student. After the break-in, the woman said she asked Kohberger to come over to help her when he suggested that she install a surveillance system. 

He then assisted the woman in putting in the video network, to which authorities believe he could have gained access through her Wi-Fi password. 

“I would expect that he orchestrated the whole thing. He was not looking at her as a potential victim.” Ex-FBI profiler Greg Cooper said of the incident. “But he orchestrated it so that she would come to him and that he would be able to help her. It is another level of power, and domination, and control over another person.” 

Kohberger is suspected of killing Kaylee Goncalves, 21, Madison Mogen, 21, Xana Kernodle, 20, and Ethan Chapin, 20, in their off-campus home near the University of Idaho campus in Moscow, Idaho in November. 

A previous report of cellphone data showed that Kohberger had staked out his victim’s’ home at least 12 times over five months. DNA for the suspect matched the DNA  found on a leather knife sheath at the scene. 

Kohberger graduated in May of 2022 with a Masters of Arts in Criminal Justice from Pennsylvania DeSales University, where he researched to “understand how emotions and psychological traits influence decision making when committing a crime.”
