Police: Idaho student murder suspect had a gun, knives, masks and gloves at family home

A handgun, knives, black face masks and gloves.

Those were among the dozens of items seized from the family home of Idaho student murder suspect Bryan Kohberger, according to a search warrant unsealed Thursday.

Court documents show that Pennsylvania State Police investigators found a Glock 22 handgun with three empty magazines, a knife and a Smith & Wesson pocketknife in an overnight raid on the house of Kohberger's parents when he was arrested Dec. 30.  

His arrest came more than three months after students Ethan Chapin, 20, Madison Mogen, 21, Kaylee Goncalves, 21, and Xana Kernodle, 20, were killed in the Nov. 13 attack in Moscow, Idaho, that created weeks of panic, confusion and frustration in the small college town.

Authorities charged Kohberger, a former doctoral student in the criminal justice and criminology department at Washington State University in Pullman, about 10 miles away, with four counts of first-degree murder and a count of felony burglary on suspicion of entering the house with intent to commit murder. Each of the students was stabbed while sleeping.

Kohberger became the prime suspect through a combination of DNA evidence on a large knife sheath found at the scene, trash collected from his parents' Pennsylvania home, surveillance video, cellphone records and license-plate readers that tracked his car on a cross-country drive, authorities say.

The warrant unsealed in Monroe County, Pennsylvania, on Thursday  comes two days after another warrant was unsealed revealing law enforcement seized some of Kohberger's clothes and took a cheek swab from the suspect. 

The newest warrant made public shows investigators took a door panel from the car Kohberger was driving when he was arrested in Pennsylvania, along with seat cushions, headrests, a seatbelt, visor, brake, gas pedals and several documents.

Additional items seized include a cellphone, a cell phone bill, a laptop, a “green leafy substance" in a plastic bag, books – including one titled "criminal psychology" – along with a black hat, hiking boots and other dark-colored clothing.

Last week, University of Idaho President Scott Green said the house where the students were stabbed will be demolished later this semester. Green said the razing of the multi-story rental home in Moscow, Idaho, will be "a healing step" for the campus and community.

Investigators collected more than 100 pieces of evidence and took thousands of photographs and multiple 3D scans. 

Kohberger's phone had been tracked near the Idaho house at least 12 times in the six months before the murders, authorities say, and he may have returned to the crime scene hours after the killings.

Kohberger's DNA was also found at the house, authorities said.

Kohberger, who is in custody in Idaho, waived his right to a speedy trial in January. He has not entered a plea and is scheduled to have a preliminary court hearing in June. A judge will then determine if there is enough evidence to proceed to trial.
