Bodycam footage of panicked accused Idaho killer Kohberger in car with dad released

Indiana State Police have released bodycam footage of suspected Idaho butcher Bryan Kohberger looking panicked after being stopped by an officer on I-70, just outside of Indianapolis.

Kohberger, who has been charged with the murder of four Idaho University students,  Kaylee Goncalves and Maddie Mogen, both 21, and their roommate Xana Kernodle and her boyfriend Ethan Chapin, both 20, was traveling with his father at the time of the stop.

This was the second time the suspected killer was stopped in Indiana while driving his white Hyundai Elantra. Both stops occurred within a period of 10 minutes and Kohberger was let off with a warning in each time — state police said there was no information available at the time about him being a suspect.

Kohberger, who was driving, seemed to have a look of panic on his face as the officer approached the passenger side window of the vehicle, where his father sat.

The alleged killer’s attorney, Jason LaBar, said the father flew to Washington to help his son make the 2,500-mile drive to the family home in Pennsylvania for the Christmas holidays.

The 28-year-old suspect was seeking a doctorate in criminal justice at Washington State University, which is a short 15-minute drive to the house in Moscow, Idaho, where the four Idaho University students were reportedly stabbed to death with a ‘Rambo-style’ knife.

“The traffic stop happened on December 15 just before 11 a.m. when ISP says the trooper pulled Kohberger over for following too closely. This was the 2nd time he was pulled over. Shortly before, a Hancock County Sheriff’s Deputy also pulled him over for following too closely,” Fox59 reporter Max Lewis tweeted.

“Both times, Kohberger was released with a verbal warning,” he added. “The Hancock County Sheriff also says there was no information at the time about a suspect in Idaho. Sheriff is not releasing its bodycam video because he says it’s part of the ongoing criminal investigation in Idaho.”

Kohberger agreed in court Tuesday to be extradited back to Idaho to face four first-degree murder charges — he denies killing the four students.

The accused killer was seen in court whispering to his family, “I love you.”

“Mr. Kohberger, do you suffer from any mental health diagnosis or take prescribed medication or medication that would impact ability to understand what we are doing here today?” Judge Margherita Worthington asked the suspect, according to the New York Post.

“No,” he answered.

“Do you wish to waive your rights and voluntarily return to the state of Idaho to face prosecution?” the judge asked.

“Yes,” Kohberger responded.
