Source says suspect followed Idaho students’ ‘every move for weeks,’ wore gloves to cover his tracks: ‘So freaking scary’

Disturbing details about Bryan Kohberger, the suspected monster behind the massacre of four Idaho students, are emerging, with one source saying the criminology PhD candidate tracked his victims “for weeks” before making his deadly move.

According to a friend of a police officer assigned to follow Kohberger in Pennsylvania, where he was at last arrested, Kohberger even donned gloves to enter a grocery store, so as not to leave fingerprints behind after the murders.

“He’s not stupid and has been very careful,” the anonymous source said, according to the Daily Mail.

The source explained that their “good friend” was “one of the cops” tasked with following the suspect “the last couple days.”

“He followed him into a Giant (local grocery store) and he wore gloves the entire time,” the source said.

In a bone-chilling twist, the source claims Kohberger stalked his victims using his cell phone.

“Not sure if they ever interacted – but his cell phone pings followed their every move for weeks,” the friend of the officer stated.

As BizPac Review reported, authorities announced on Friday morning that police and the FBI raided a Chestnuthill Township home in Monroe County, Pennsylvania, in connection to the brutal deaths of Kaylee Goncalves, Maddie Mogen, Xana Kernodle and Ethan Chapin.

Kohberger, 28, was apprehended and charged with felony burglary and four counts of first-degree murder.

The arrest took place just 40 minutes from the source’s home, the Daily Mail reports. The Pocono Mountains town in which Kohberger’s family lives is small, and the source claims he lives near their uncles and aunts and attended school with their cousins.

“So freaking scary and disturbing!” the source said. “I’ve been so invested in this case the last 6 weeks, and to find out how close he is to us – and that one of our friends found him and arrested him is just crazy.”

In the days following the November murders, a cool Kohberger returned to teaching criminal justice and criminology classes at the University of Washington.

According to multiple students in the program, his demeanor in class didn’t change after the murders.

Ben Roberts, a graduate student at WSU, told Fox Seattle that Kohberger was “confident” and “outgoing,” but “was always looking for a way to fit in.”

“It’s pretty out of left field,” Roberts said of Kohberger’s arrest. “I had honestly just pegged him as being super awkward.”

“One thing he would always do, almost without fail, was find the most complicated way to explain something,” Roberts added.

Former fellow Pennsylvania classmates of the suspect described Kohberger as a shy genius who was often bullied at school, Fox News Digital reports.

“It was bad,” said Sarah Healey, who attended Pleasant Valley High School with the suspect. “There was definitely something off about him, like we couldn’t tell exactly what it was. I remember one time when I was walking in the hallway, and he stopped me and was like, ‘Do you want to hang out?’”

Healey noted that, at that time, she and Kohberger didn’t run in the same social circles and were strangers to each other.

“It was just weird,” she said. “But Bryan was bullied a lot, and I never got a chance to say something to defend him, because he would always run away.”

The former classmate said she could recall hearing other girls tell the introvert to “go away, creep” or “I don’t want to hang out with you.”

“I honestly think that’s what led up to this, because he didn’t get the proper help, and it was mainly females that bullied him,” Healey said.

Kohberger, who is awaiting extradition to Idaho, denies the charges and, according to his lawyer, “looks forward to resolving these matters.”

“Mr. Kohberger is eager to be exonerated of these charges and looks forward to resolving these matters as promptly as possible,” said Monroe County Chief Public Defender Jason LaBar, who is only representing the suspect until he is handed off to Idaho.
