Former assistant FBI Director Chris Swecker said Tuesday the man charged with murdering four Idaho college students has probably killed before.
“I hate to say this because it sounds so grim, but I don’t think this is the first time he’s ever killed,” Swecker said about accused killer Bryan Kohberger on the John Solomon Reports podcast. “I think the FBI is probably scouring the area around Pennsylvania where he spent a lot of time.”
The 28-year-old Kohberger was arrested at his parents’ house in eastern Pennsylvania and charged with first-degree murder in connection with the Nov. 13 deaths of four University of Idaho students: Kaylee Goncalves, Maddie Mogen, Xana Kernodle and Ethan Chapin.
He was at the time of the killings pursing a doctorate degree in criminology and forensics at Washington State University.
Kohberger’s family released a statement this weekend asking for the legal process to play out.
“We have fully cooperated with law enforcement agencies in an attempt to seek the truth and promote his presumption of innocence rather than judge unknown facts and make erroneous assumptions,” the statement read.
