Nancy Grace expands on ‘haunting question’ alleged Idaho killer Bryan Kohberger asked cops after arrest

The arrest of Bryan Kohberger for the murders of four University of Idaho students — Kaylee Goncalves, 21, Maddie Mogen, 21, Xana Kernodle, 20, and Ethan Chapin, 20 — has for the time being only inspired more questions, not answers.

Complicating the matter is what Kohberger reportedly asked investigators when they arrested him. According to Brian Entin of NewsNation, he asked them whether anyone else had been arrested for the murders. But why on Earth did he ask this?

Speaking on Fox News’ “Hannity” this Friday, legendary crime journalist Nancy Grace admitted that his question would “suggest that there is an accomplice.”

However, she expressed her sincere doubt that Kohberger had indeed had an accomplice.

“Forensically, it appears that there was only one type of weapon used. So what am I supposed to think? They handed the knife off to each other? No. But could someone have been a lookout? Did someone help plan it? Possibly. Possibly. But in my mind, highly doubtful,” she said.

Moscow Police Department Chief James Fry also believes Kohberger acted alone.

“We truly believe we have the individual that committed these crimes,” he told Fox News.

Not much is known yet about Kohberger, except for the stunning fact that he isn’t even a University of Idaho student.

“Kohberger is a graduate student at Washington State University’s Department of Criminal Justice and Criminology. … In a Friday evening statement, the university confirmed Kohberger finished his first semester as a PhD student in the school’s criminal justice program earlier in December,” according to CNN.

“University police assisted authorities in executing search warrants at his office and apartment, both located on the school’s Pullman campus. … A CNN team earlier had filmed law enforcement agents outside a WSU graduate residence in Pullman that authorities said was connected to Kohberger. Pullman is about a 15-minute drive from Moscow, where the killings took place,” CNN reported.

That’s right, the alleged killer had been studying criminology …

Moreover, he’d reportedly been studying criminology under a famous criminologist.

He “took courses by the famed forensic psychologist Katherine Ramsland, whose 68 books include ‘How to Catch a Killer,’ ‘The Psychology of Death Investigations,’ and ‘The Mind of a Murderer,'” according to The Daily Beast.

According to one of his former classmates, he’d been a “very intelligent” and “well spoken” but “seemingly detached” guy.

“He was very leveled and somewhat imposing. There wasn’t much emotion displayed by him. He took care with how he spoke,” the classmate said to The Daily Beast, adding that Kohberger had an “intense stare.”

As for the motive, it remains unknown, though according to Grace, it’s clear that he’d been intent on murder — not theft or rape or whatever else.

“He didn’t go in to steal. He didn’t go in to rape anybody. He went into that home with the intent to kill. Take a look at this guy. Would it surprise you to see him, that face staring in your bathroom window? Because it would not surprise me,” she said Friday.

She also talked about his study of criminology and his obsessive veganism.

“This guy has got a master’s degree in criminology. He’s currently working on a Ph.D. in criminal justice. Yet he drove the getaway car all the way and parked it outside of Mommy’s house. Are you kidding me?” she said.

“Another thing we know about this guy. He has been described as obsessively vegan to the point that he made his parents get rid of their pots and pans. He is obsessive. He is fastidious. He’s about six feet tall. He’s socially awkward. He planned this whole thing,” she added.

Grace suspects Kohberger might be an “incel,” which is short for involuntarily celibate.

“From the get-go, we said a male between 25 and 38 to 40. A white male, because people normally kill within their own race. Single, which he is. As a matter of fact, there’s no indication of a girlfriend and ex-fiancee. Even a high school girlfriend hasn’t been dug up yet. So is this guy an incel? What was his motivation?” she said.

Concluding her remarks on Fox News, she said that sadly, there will likely never be true “closure” for the victims’ families.

“There’s no such thing as closure. This guy will probably end up with a life sentence unless a jury comes to their senses and gives him the death penalty. These families, and I know as being a victim of violent crime, you get a life sentence for the rest of your life wondering what your loved one went through at the time of their death,” she said.

“It will never be over for them. There is no closure for these families,” she added.
