Idaho Arrest Affidavit Traces Path Of Suspected Killer of 4 Students
Homicide detectives and even killers categorize the slain four University of Idaho students as “shiny” victims.
They were young, innocent, and attractive.
John Moriarty, the former Inspector General of the Texas Department of Criminal Justice, says such cases motivate investigators to go the extra mile to solve the crime.
“It’s the ultimate good versus evil,” said Moriarty.
Investigators used sophisticated techniques detailed in an arrest warrant affidavit, including DNA, cell phone data, and ubiquitous video surveillance cameras, to charge 28-year-old Bryan Kohberger with murdering four University of Idaho students in their off-campus home on November 13, 2022.
If Kohberer, a Ph.D. criminology student at the University of Washington, is convicted, it will prove the old adage that some criminals return to the scene of the crime.
In this episode of True Crime Reporter®, John Moriarty and investigative reporter Robert Riggs walk listeners through details contained in the arrest warrant.
Moriarty, the former Inspector General of the Texas Department of Criminal Justice, used the same means to hunt down fugitives wanted for murder and violent crimes.
Plus, he wrote countless arrest and search warrant affidavits, and Riggs relied on such affidavits as the factual basis for his crime reporting.
You may recall that Moriarty, a transplanted Irish cop from New York City, is featured in True Crime Reporter®’s series about serial killer Kenneth McDuff and the Telly Award-winning television documentary on Fox Nation streaming titled Freed To Kill.
Kohberger made a brief court appearance on January 5th of 2023, with cuts on his face raising questions if the suspect’s alleged victim’s had fought back.
Based on the review of the arrest warrant affidavit by Moriarty and Riggs, you will hear their thoughts about a possible motive for the murders.
