A suspect has finally been arrested for the brutal murders of four University of Idaho students over six weeks ago.

In the early hours of November 13, four University of Idaho college students were brutally murdered in Idaho with a hunting knife in their off-campus home. For weeks police were baffled by the seemingly senseless murder.

Finally, in a hopeful turn in the tragic case, a suspect has been apprehended and is being held for extradition in connection to the murders of the four students.

The suspect is 28-year-old Bryan Christopher Kohberger, a Washington State criminology graduate student. His school is just a 15-minute drive from where the murders were committed.

Kohberger was arrested by SWAT in Scranton, Pennsylvania around 3 am Friday morning.

Police also recovered a white Hyundai Elantra from the home where the suspect was apprehended, matching the vehicle that authorities had been searching for in connection with the murders.

On November 13, local police were called to an off-campus residence at the University of Idaho where four students had been fatally stabbed. There was no evidence of forced entry at the residence.

The victims were Kaylee Goncalves, 21, Madison Mogen, 21, Ethan Chapin, 20, and Xana Kernodle, 20.

Moscow police reported that an “edged weapon such as a knife” was used in the killings. However, no murder weapon was recovered.

Police also reported that the victims were likely asleep before they were attacked. Surprisingly, the two other roommates in the home were left untouched and did not hear any commotion at the time of the murders. The two roommates were ruled out as suspects by the police.

Moscow police received nearly 20,000 tips and conducted over 300 interviews related to this case. Their most promising lead was the 2011-2013 white Hyundai Elantra that was reported to be in the immediate area of the home during the time of the murders. This matches the description of the vehicle police recovered from the home where the suspect was arrested.
