The accused killer is Brian Kohberger
Pennsylvania sealed another search warrant a day later after the warrant revealed several items law enforcement seized from Brian Kohberger’s parents’ home during a Dec. 30 raid.
Brian Kohberger, 28, accused of fatally stabbing Ethan Chapin, 20, of Conway, Washington; 21-year-old Madison Mogen of Coeur d’Alene, Idaho; Xana Kernadle, 20, of Avondale, Arizona; and Kaylee Goncalves, 21, of Rathdrum, Idaho, on Nov. 13.

Police recovered parts of Brian Kohberger’s white Hyundai Elantra.
Tire irons, shovel, floor mat, door panel, seats and seat cushions, headrests, seatbelt, brake pedal, gas pedal, band-aid and other items were seized from the vehicle.
The FBI seized several items from Kohberger’s parents’ home, including four medical-style gloves and a pair of black Under Armor socks.
However one item has the legal eagles talking – a pair of size 13 black and white Nike sneakers.
A men’s size 13 shoe is unusual.
A probable cause affidavit previously disclosed that police found a “latent shoe print” in blood at the crime scene.
According to court documents, Kohberger’s DNA was found on a brown leather knife sheath left on Maddie Mogen’s bed on the 3rd floor of the King Road residence.
“The membrane was then processed and ‘Ka-bar’ ‘USMC’ and the United States Marine Corps eagle globe and anchor insignia were stamped on its exterior,” Idaho police officer Brett Payne wrote in a 19-page affidavit. “An Idaho State lab later found a single source of male DNA (suspicious profile) left on the button snap of a knife sheath.”
According to PEOPLE, Kohberger had “more than one picture” of one of the female victims on his phone.
Two weeks before the murder, Kohberger reportedly messaged one of the female victims on Instagram.
Police executed a search warrant at the Kohbergers’ Pullman, WA apartment, about 10 miles from the crime scene.
Police found a nitrite-type glove, 13 possible hair strands (one possible animal hair strand), 1 dark red spot (possible blood), 2 cut red/brown stains (possible blood) among other evidence.
Kohberger faces a firing squad since GOP state lawmakers introduced a new bill that would bring back the legal death penalty.
