Fellow inmate says Idaho murderer suspect taunted guards, exposed himself, sang violent rap lyrics

Suspected Idaho murderer Bryan Kohberger is due back in court in Pennsylvania on Tuesday, and he has definitely made an impression on staff at the Monroe County Jail in Stroudsburg, where he is being held awaiting extradition back to Idaho.

At least, that’s according to another inmate at the facility, who told the Daily Mail the alleged sadistic killer spends his days ranting and singing lyrics from violent rap songs inside his cell.

Valerie Cipollina, 50, who was in jail after getting in a fight with her boyfriend, said the man charged with the brutal murder of four University of Idaho students taunted guards who appeared to be too scared to enter his cell and tried to expose himself.

“I cut them, I’ll cut you,” Kohberger yelled repeatedly, according to Cipollina.

“You come in here and I’ll cut you,” he allegedly yelled at one guard. “I’m going to pee on your face. Do what you want with me, I don’t give a s**t.”

A local reporter shared a photo of the jail facility Kohberger was being held at and said a guard told him at the time that the suspect was “not talking.”

Cipollina said her cell was catty-corner from Kohberger’s and she could only see his upper body clearly through the glass — the British newspaper noted that he was wearing a standard orange prison jumpsuit and not the anti-suicide “turtle suit” he was wearing when his mugshot was taken on Friday.

She told the Daily Mail that he lifted up his shirt repeatedly and she heard the guard tell him several times to put his pants back on. She believes he was trying to expose himself to her.

“I couldn’t see his genitals because the glass wall only went down so far,” Cipollina said, after suggesting that he was trying to expose himself. “I could see him through the polycarbonate glass window of his jail cell. He was standing up right against it, yelling out violent rap lyrics.”

According to the woman, Kohberger yelled out a line from Lil Wayne’s Multiple Flows: “F**k my enemies and foes.” Cipollina said he also sang violent and misogynistic lyrics from Bad Bunny songs.

When a guard told the murder suspect to quiet down, Cipollina claimed he replied, “Come on in motherf***er. You come in here – let’s talk.”

“He then screamed at the top of his lungs: ‘Come in all of you. You scared of me? You should be scared of me,” she added.

“You’re going to do nothing to me because I’m going to cut all of you up,” he allegedly ranted, according to the now-former inmate. “Come into this cell and I’ll show you I’m a creeper. Come in this cell and I’ll cut you up too.”

Kohberger is charged with four counts of first-degree murder and one of felony burglary for allegedly killing Kaylee Goncalves and Maddie Mogen, both 21, and their roommate Xana Kernodle and her boyfriend Ethan Chapin, both 20.

They died in their beds at their home in Moscow, Idaho, in the early hours of November 13 in a killing so brutal that police described the scene as “the worst we have ever seen,” the Daily Mail reported, with the newspaper adding that a “Rambo-style knife was used to carry out the murders.”
