  • It includes knives, a gun, ammunition and books, a laptop and a mobile phone
  • A ‘note from Bryan to Dad’ was also taken, but the contents are unknown

The full list of items seized by Pennsylvania police from the home of Bryan Kohberger’s parents was revealed Thursday and includes several knives, a pistol with ammunition and a black mask.

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

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

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

Bryan Kohberger returns to court in June. He will be taken into custody in January

Police tied him up in connection with the gruesome quadruple murder of four students after they tracked his white Hyundai to the scene. They also matched his DNA to a sample left on a knife sheath found at the scene.

The murder weapon was not found in the home.

But the newly unsealed warrant reveals that police seized three knives from Kohberger’s parents’ property, including one in a different sheath.

Police also confiscated a “black mask,” which bears little resemblance to the black balaclava described by the surviving roommate who saw the killer leave the scene on Nov. 13.

Police seized 63 items from Kohberger’s family home. They contain:

Several items of clothing, books, documents, bills and prescriptions were also seized during the investigation.

Police watched Kohberger for days before raiding the home in the early hours of December 30.

The 28-year-old criminal psychology student must appear in court again in June. He has yet to file a plea.

Kohberger is charged with stabbing Maddie Mogen, Kaylee Goncalves, Xana Kernodle and Ethan Chapin on Nov. 13 in a savage, unexplained quadruple homicide.

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

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

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