Idaho ‘murderer’ neighbors reveal his late-night behavior and claim he looked too weak to kill


Suspected Idaho killer Bryan Kohberger ‘never slept’ and didn’t appear to be capable of murder as his downstairs neighbor revealed his odd late-night behaviors.

Kohberger, 28, was arrested at his parent’s home in Pennsylvania on Friday for the quadruple murder of the University Idaho students Kailee Golcalves, 21, Maddie Mogen, 21, Xana Kernodle, 20, and Ethan Chapin, 20.

His neighbor in Pullman, Washington, where Kohberger was a criminology student, recalled the suspected murderer keeping a low profile and appearing too weak to kill.

‘I don’t know how he could’ve killed people because he doesn’t look that tough,’ the neighbor, who asked to remain anonymous told the New York Post.

The neighbor, who is a woman, told the news outlet that she always heard Kohberger up late at night since he moved into the complex in August.

‘He’s normally a very late-night person, going to the bathroom and vacuuming at 1 or 12 in the morning,’ she said.

‘I have kids, so sometimes I thought of speaking to him or complaining, but never did. It seemed like he never slept because he was always doing something all night.’

While Kohberger was never talkative with his neighbors, he occasionally greeted others in passing.

She recalled him bringing a woman home with him one night and hearing them talk through the walls of the complex.

The alleged killer also brought home a woman with him in his white car, but the two immediately parted ways when he parked, according to the neighbor.

His neighbor said she was in disbelief when she learned Kohberger was the suspected killer in the horrific November 13 murders.

‘We are all PhD students here so it takes a lot of hard work and smarts to get to this point,’ she said. ‘You don’t think someone like that could do something like this.’

Students who attended Washington State University with Kohberger were also shocked to learn that the quiet man in their classroom was the prime suspect in the brutal slaying.

BK Norton, who was in the same criminal justice graduate program with Kohberger, said her classmate appeared more animated and talkative following the murders. 

‘He seemed more upbeat and willing to carry a conversation,’ she told the New York Times.

But Norton noted all his enthusiasm would go away and he would become ‘quiet and deadpan’ when the class would discuss the Idaho murder case. 

‘I don’t believe he had any reaction,’ Norton told the New York Post, saying it was odd because everyone else was glued to the case and speculated on the lack of public information. 

‘We had quite a long conversation in class about it too. I don’t believe I remember him commenting about it at all.’ 

Another student, who spoke with the Times under the condition of anonymity, backed up Norton’s claim and said Kohberger didn’t have many friends at the school because of alleged LGBTQ+ remarks he made.

Ben Roberts, a classmate of Kohberger and Norton, echoed the suspect’s usual quiet nature in class but said his demeanor changed after the killings. 

‘He was starting to show up really tired,’ Roberts told the Seattle Times. ‘He’d always have a cup of coffee in his hand, and he kind of looked like he was riding the knife edge between worn out and completely exhausted.’ 

The suspect is believed to have driven some 2,300 miles from Moscow to Pennsylvania. He was attending college in nearby Washington State

Meanwhile, Kohberger’s family addressed the charges, shared condolences with the victim’s families, and asked for people to refrain from judgment.

‘We will continue to let the legal process unfold and as a family, we will love and support our son and brother,’ the family said on Sunday.

‘First and foremost, we care deeply for the four families who have lost their precious children.

‘There are no words that can adequately express the sadness we feel, and we pray each day for them,’ the statement, obtained by TMZ, read in part.  

‘We have fully cooperated with law enforcement agencies in an attempt to seek the truth and promote his presumption of innocence rather than judge unknown facts and make erroneous assumptions,’ the family continued.

Kohberger’s family asked for privacy during this time as they cooperate with law enforcement to get to the bottom of the case. 

‘We respect privacy in this matter as our family and the families suffering loss can move forward through the legal process,’ the family said. 

Law enforcement officials believe Kohberger had been stalking the victims in the weeks leading up to the November 13 slayings.

In addition to stalking the young students and being careful to not leave evidence at the scene, sources say the man wore gloves for weeks after the murders to not distribute DNA. 

Kohberger faces four counts of first-degree murder.
