  • Bryan Kohberger, the criminology Ph.D. student accused of ambushing a group of University of Idaho undergrads in November, allegedly sent one of the four victims a series of private messages on Instagram before the slayings, according to a new report.
  • “He slid into one of the girl’s DMs several times, but she didn’t respond,” an unnamed investigator told People. “Basically, it was just him saying, ‘Hey, how are you?’ But he did it again and again.”
  • The FBI, which assisted Moscow, Idaho, police in trailing Kohberger from his apartment in Pullman, Washington, to his parents’ house in Pennsylvania’s Poconos Mountains, did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
