In mid-December, the father of Bryan Kohberger, the 28-year-old man accused of slaughtering four University of Idaho students in the early morning on November 13, joined his son for a cross country drive from Idaho to their home in Albrightsville, Pennsylvania.

NewsNation Correspondent Brian Entin tweeted on Monday, "The public defender representing Bryan Kohberger told me Bryan’s dad went out to Idaho and drove back with him to Pennsylvania in the white Hyunda Elantra in mid December."

Police put out a nationwide alert searching for owners of a white Hyundai Elantra on December 13. According to the Daily Mail, the Kohberger father and son pair were seen on December 16 when they stopped at a Pennsylvania car maintenance shop. Their trip was about 2,500 miles in total.

Kohberger's public defender, Jason LaBar, said on Sunday that his client was "shocked" by the four first-degree murder charges and that he "is eager to be exonerated of these charges and looks forward to resolving these matters as promptly as possible." 

Through his attorney, Kohberger has maintained his innocence and said he would cooperate with authorities.

The suspect's family released a statement on Sunday saying, " We will continue to let the legal process unfold and as a family we will love and support our son and brother."

"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. We respect privacy in this matter as our family and the families suffering loss can move forward through the legal process," the statement concluded.

On Saturday, Chief of Moscow Police James Fry, went on Fox News and said, "We truly believe we have the individual that committed these crimes" indicating that he believed Kohberger acted alone.

More information has come to light over the suspect, Kohberger, a graduate student at Washington State University pursuing his PhD in criminology.

Michelle Bolger, a DeSales University Professor who taught Kohberger, described the suspect as a "brilliant student" to the Daily Mail and said, "I'm shocked as s**t at what he's been accused of. I don't believe it, but I get it."

Bolger added, "He was an online student in the criminal justice master's degree program and graduated in June 2022."

The bodies of 20-year-old Xana Kernodle, her boyfriend 20-year-old Ethan Chapin, along with 21-year-old Madison Mogen and 21-year-old Kaylee Goncalves were discovered on November 13. The four lived in a rented home on King Road in Moscow, Idaho along with two other roommates who were not attacked, one of whom called police that morning to report an "unconscious person." Police responded to find the quartet butchered with multiple stab wounds.
