New details continue to emerge on Idaho killer, including talk of ‘cannibalistic urges’

Details behind the grisly murder of four University of Idaho students continue to emerge, including reports that suspected killer Bryan Kohberger’s DNA was reportedly found on a knife sheath at the Moscow, Idaho residence where the murders took place.

Another frightening detail that emerged this week is that one of the two surviving roommates encountered the killer at the house. According to a police affidavit, Dylan Mortensen heard what she believed to be one of her roommates crying. She left her room and that’s when she saw a man in black clothes and a mask, freezing with fear as he walked past — she would not call the police for six hours.

Fox News host Laura Ingraham featured an expert criminal profiler on “The Ingraham Angle,” who offered his take on why the killer spared Mortensen by suggesting that he likely wanted to “get out of Dodge” after killing the other four students.

“I think he was in a rush to get out of the house,” criminal profiler John Kelly told Ingraham when she asked why a murderer would want to leave a surviving witness.

“Usually with these types of killers, at a certain point — don’t forget, he’s tired. He’s killed a number of people already. At this point in time, maybe something’s getting to him and he just wants to put himself between him and the bodies as quick as possible,” Kelly explained. “He just wants to get out of Dodge as fast as he can.”

Kelly added that the killer probably “had his fill for the night and wanted out of there,” and suggested that he had a “volcanic rage inside that’s going to explode on his victim of choice.”

Ingraham commented on Kohberger’s “cannibalistic tendencies,” citing a Newsweek story in which a forensic psychiatrist spoke about the suspect’s “obsessive-compulsive eating habits.”

“He had a bizarre approach to eating,” she said. “A forensic psychiatrist said that he reported compulsive obsessive compulsive eating habits indicating he was afraid he’d be addicted to meat if he ate it… and it represented his struggle against his cannibalistic urges.”

Calling the report “freakshow central,” she gave Kelly the floor to respond.

“Yeah, this is central freak show. You’re absolutely right. I mean, I don’t know what I’m going to hear next,” he said. “Bottom line is when you look at this obsessive-compulsive behavior, if you look at every serial killer — and we’ve done research on this — you will find that they have some type of obsessive-compulsive behavior.”

“And like Dahmer, cannibalism is up for grabs. You know, it can happen,” Kelly added.

Another damning detail learned Thursday was that FBI agents watching Kolberger at his parents’ home in Pennsylvania saw the suspect emerge from the house at 4 am wearing surgical gloves. He was taking out the trash, but put the bag in the neighbor’s bin, according to the Daily Mail. He was reportedly seen cleaning the inside and outside of his car as well, with a source saying he didn’t “miss an inch.”

An FBI surveillance team was watching him for four days prior to his arrest, tasked “with tracking Kohberger so they could arrest him as soon as a warrant was issued as well as trying to get hold of an object to compare DNA to a sample found at the scene,” the British tabloid reported.

The DNA found on the sheath was compared to the DNA of Kohberger’s father, with a 99.9998 percent match, according to unsealed court documents.

Once a warrant was issued, a SWAT team employed a rare tactic known as “dynamic entry,” the Daily Mail reported, this involving breaking down the doors and windows to quickly gain entry because the suspect was considered “high risk.”
