An identity linked to the murdered University of Idaho students has been found in the car of suspected killer Brian Kohberger amid reports he may have been stalking one of the victims online.
Kohberger, 28, is accused of killing Maddy Maugin, 21, Kylie Goncalves, 21, Ethan Chapin, 20, and Zana Kernodel, 20, in their off-campus home in November.
His relationship to the students remains unclear, but an unsealed search warrant states that officers found identification cards in his car six weeks after the murder.
sources said now News of the nation It belongs to a person who lives in the Moscow residence.
A gag order in the high-profile trial means that the police will not confirm who it belongs to.
Kohberger has been linked to the grisly murders by DNA on the knife sheath found in the house and cellphone tower data which also placed him near the crime scene.
Retired FBI agent Jennifer Covindaver said the discovery was a “big deal”.
“This is a smoking license,” she said during an appearance on CUOMO Thursday.
Just like the wrap was a sheath of smoke found next to Maddy with his DNA on that clamp, it’s the same in this case.
“Why does he have an ID related to one of those people from that house?”
Attorney Mark Geragos also said the evidence would be a “hurdle” for the defense if presented in court.
Meanwhile, WhatsNew2Day.com reporter Caitlyn Becker said the identities appeared to be hidden in Kohberger’s car.
She explained in a TikTok video: ‘When these notes were revealed last month, I looked through them, and saw ID cards were taken, but without any other information it wasn’t clear to me.
“But now with a source saying one of those IDs belonged to someone connected to the murders, I went back to look at the details of the search warrant and what I found was kind of crazy.”

indicate that Kohberger intentionally concealed the identifiers.
She added, “My other questions are: Whose identity was it? When did you lose?
If before the murders, could this support the state’s theory of stalking? And if it’s after the murders, are we looking at a potential trophy?
Kohberger was a doctoral student in criminal justice at Washington State University – about 15 miles from Moscow.
Police found an array of disturbing items including a handgun, several knives and a black face mask in his home after the dramatic arrest.
Investigators remained silent about a possible motive for the killing, but revealed in an affidavit that he had visited the home district of Moscow “several times”.
And last week, it was revealed that police had served several search warrants to social media companies including TikTok and Google to see if there was any contact between Kohberger and his victims.
And in February, it emerged that he had multiple photos of one of the girls on his phone when he was being searched by the cops.
Sources told People at the time that he was “clearly paying attention to her” — though they didn’t reveal which of the girls it was.
Kohberger is scheduled to appear in court on June 26. He has yet to file a lawsuit on four counts of murder and one count of felony robbery.
It comes after reports said that authorities in at least two Pennsylvania counties where Kohberger attended college searched cold case files for links.

Northampton County District Attorney Terence Hook, who has asked his staff to research whether Coburger could have links to any unsolved cases in his jurisdiction, said: ‘Your natural question is that you start to wonder, is this man wanted? ”.
Is his name on there? Did he do anything here in (my country)?
Authorities have said in the past that Kohburger had no prior criminal record.
However, since Kohberger was a student at Northampton Community College in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania authorities took a deeper look at the records.
He may have attended classes at a Monroe County college campus. Using the Crime Information Center, authorities in Northampton County searched unsolved case records using Kohberger’s height, weight, posture and other characteristics that could have tipped him off in an unsolved crime.
