The full list of items seized by Pennsylvania police from Bryan Kohberger’s parents’ house was revealed on Thursday and includes multiple knives, a handgun with  ammunition and a black mask. 

Police also seized a shovel from the accused murderer’s white Hyundai Elantra, along with multiple ZipLock bags, hiking boots and a wrench. 

They removed the car seats, a door panel and the brake and gas pedals from the vehicle for testing too.  

Kohberger was arrested at his parents’ home in Albrightsville on December 30 after driving from Idaho to Pennsylvania with his father. 

Bryan Kohberger will return to court in June. He is shown in custody in January 

Cops tied him to the gruesome quadruple murder of four college kids after tracking his white Hyundai to the scene. They also matched his DNA to a sample that was left on a knife sheath found at the scene. 

The murder weapon was not recovered at the house. 

But the newly unsealed warrant reveals cops seized three knives from Kohberger’s parents’ property, including one in another sheath. 

Police also seized a ‘black mask’, which is not dissimilar to the black ski mask described by the surviving roommate who saw the murderer leave the scene on November 13. 

Police seized 63 items from Kohberger’s parent’s house, including multiple items of clothing, books, documents, bills and prescriptions.

Police had been watching Kohberger for days before they raided the house in the early hours of December 30. 

The 28-year-old criminal psychology student is due back in court in June. He is yet to enter a plea. 

Kohberger is accused of stabbing Maddie Mogen, Kaylee Goncalves, Xana Kernodle and Ethan Chapin on November 13 in a savage, unexplained quadruple murder. 

The off-campus house where the killings took place is soon to be demolished. 

Police say they not only traced his car to the scene, but that they also matched a DNA sample to Kohberger’s. 

Another search warrant that was unsealed earlier this week revealed cops also took a flashlight, medical gloves and Kohberger’s underwear.
