Idaho ‘killer’ Bryan Kohberger stalked victims’ home at least TWELVE TIMES before murders: Cellphone data pings reveal he turned his phone off for two hours during quadruple slaying – and returned to the area twice later the same day

  • Police believe that Bryan Kohberger stalked the home of his four victims 
  • He was tracked outside of the property at least 12 times in the months before
  • Kohberger is accused of turning his phone off in the hours he killed the students
  • Officers linked him to his number after discovering a traffic stop in August 

Suspected Idaho killer Bryan Kohberger staked out his victim’s home twelve times before brutally murdering them, a police affidavit reveals.

Authorities have released the probable cause affidavit ahead of the 28-year-old hearing in Moscow, Idaho, later today.

It reveals how Kohberger turned his phone off on the night of the murders in an attempt to cover his tracks before the murders – turning it off before getting too close to the property. 

Twisted Kohberger even returned to the scene of the crime at 9am on November 13 – just hours after he allegedly committed the quadruple murders.  

Kohberger stalked the house of his four victims on twelve occasions before killing them

The documents say that the criminal justice graduate stalked the property in the late evening and early morning on each occasion – bar one.

Officials have not revealed the exact dates that he canvassed the three-story property but confirmed that in August, he was pulled over just two minutes after leaving the area covered by the cell phone tower closest to the home.

A Latah County Sheriff’s deputy pulled him over on August 21 at 11.37pm as part of a traffic stop – in which he provided his number.

During the stop, which was recorded on the officer’s body cam, Kohberger was driving his white Hyundai Elantra.

IDAHO MURDER DEVELOPMENTS

  • Idaho murders suspect Bryan Kohberger’s DNA was found on knife sheath that was left lying next to one of the victims’ bodies
  • Bryan Kohberger applied for internship at Pullman Police Department and wrote essay saying he wanted to help rural cops
  • Surviving Idaho roommate heard killer say ‘it’s okay, I’m here to help you’ before she SAW man with ‘bushy eyebrows’ and mask

Because of the series of traffic stops, officers were able to link both the car and the phone number to Kohberger – and look up each time his device pinged the tower closest to the property.

On the night of the murders, Kohberger’s phone pinged a cell tower close to his apartment in Pullman, Washington.

It then is seen leaving the area of his residence at 2:47am and traveling south through Pullman – which cops have confirmed lines up with the movements of his white Hyundai caught on camera.

His phone then stops reporting to the network, with FBI experts confirming that it is consistent with the phone being turned off, on airplane mode or in an area without phone coverage.

Court documents show that his phone is not active again until 4.48am, in the southbound lane of Highway 95 just south of Moscow.

Kohberger then travels towards Genesse, Uniontown and eventually back to Pullman between 4:50am and 5:26am.

The cell phone data then pings when he returns to his property, which is again caught on camera when the Elantra drives north on Stadium Drive at 5.27am.

His phone then left his apartment again at 9am and traveled towards Moscow, back towards the King Road residence and arrived between 9.12am and 9.21am.

Police were on the hunt for Kohberger’s white Hyundai Elantra, which officials began tracking in November after identifying that it was in the area of the killings 

Police believe that Kohberger deliberately tried to hide his location during the murders

Twisted Kohberger even returned to the scene of the crime at 9am on November 13 – just hours after he allegedly committed the quadruple murders 

Kohberger then returned home to his apartment in Pullman at 9.32am, with further analysis showing that Kohberger stopped to have a coffee at 12.36pm after the murders.

He then went grocery shopping in Washington at 12.46pm, leaving at Albertson’s grocery store at 1:04pm.

The suspected killer was in the Johnson Idaho, between 5.32pm and 5.36pm – before appearing to be turned off again until 8.30pm.

His phone has remained off or not connected to the network since November 14. 

The affidavit, written by peace officer Brett Payne, adds: ‘Based on my training, experience and facts of the investigation thus far, I believe that Kohberger was likely the driver of the white Elantra that is observed departing Pullman, WA and that this vehicle is likely Suspect vehicle 1.

‘Additionally, the route of travel of the phone during the early morning hours of November 13 and the lack of phone reporting to the tower between 2.47am and 4.48am is consistent with Kohberger attempting to conceal his location during the quadruple homicide that occurred at the King Road Residences.’
