Bryan Kohberger Stories Offer Different Images of Idaho Murder Suspect

After he was charged with four counts of first-degree murder, many former students, neighbors and a teacher came forward to speak about their different experiences with Bryan

Kohberger, offering many different perspectives of him. Kohberger, 28, was a Ph.D. student in the criminology department at Washington State University when four University

of Idaho students—Kaylee Goncalves, 21, Madison Mogen, 21, Xana Kernodle, 20, and Ethan Chapin, 20—were fatally stabbed in an off-campus residence on November 13. Over a month

later, Kohberger was arrested on the murder charges, as well as on one count of felony burglary. After he was arrested at his parents' residence in Pennsylvania, Kohberger's

former lawyer Jason LaBar, who represented him in extradition proceedings, said that his client was "eager to be exonerated." Earlier this month, Kohberger waived his right

to a speedy preliminary hearing, which scheduled his court date for June 26. In the days and weeks following his arrest, many speculated on a possible motive, although none

has been revealed at this time. However, several others, such as Kohberger's former students while he taught as a TA and neighbors spoke about their experiences with

him. Hayden Stinchfield, a student at Washington State University who had Kohberger as a TA, said that following the murders, the 28-year-old appeared to be

"preoccupied." "The couple times that he did come after, or around that time period, he had a little more facial hair, stubble, less well-kept. He was a little quieter,"

Stinchfield told CNN earlier this month.
