According to an investigator, a woman who lived in the house where four University of Idaho students were killed claims that she witnessed a man wearing black clothing walk towards her.
According to court documents, the unidentified housemate claimed that she woke up to the sound and cry of a man walking past her on her second floor.
She locked herself in her bedroom after seeing the man.
The male attacker was described by the housemate as being 5ft 10in tall or higher, “not very muscular, athletically built, with bushy eyebrows”, but not hurt in the attack.
She woke up and said that she heard her flatmate say “there’s somebody here”.
Later, she said that she heard a male voice saying something like “it’s okay, I’m going help you”.
Court documents revealed that Bryan Kohberger’s DNA, which is accused of killing Kaylee Goncalves and Madison Mogen, Xana Knodle, and Ethan Chapin was also found on the button of a knife sheath located at the crime scene.
According to the affidavit of Police Corporal Brett Payne, phone data indicated that Kohberger had visited the area around the house where they live about a dozen times prior to the attack. He stated that the apparent visits occurred in the late evening or early morning hours.
Also, the documents stated that video footage showed a white Elantra passing by the house three times during the night of the murders, just like the car registered to Kohberger.
The car was seen departing at a “high speed” approximately 15 minutes later.
