A former FBI investigator has suggested that Brian Kohberger, who is accused of killing four Idaho college students, joined online groups discussing the killings.
Jennifer Coffindaffer said she was following comments from a Facebook user with the handle Pappa Rodgers, who along with a redditor with the handle InsideLooking, offered chilling speculation about the murders that turned out to be true.
In a compendium about two online personalities who frequently discuss the brutal murders, both users accurately pinpoint the timeline of the murders and the fact that police found a knife sheath, all of which details have not been publicly disclosed. before.
Both users appeared to repeatedly insist that their speculations were accurate, and both were accused of being the real killer in their respective groups.
Coffindaffer appeared to take the side of those who believed at least one account—the 28-year-old Kohberger’s—maintained his innocence.
He wrote in a tweet, ‘He drives his own car, carries his phone with him and doesn’t clip it tightly enough in his holster, so I believe he can leave a digital trail.’ ‘He was a hot mess. Intelligence without common sense is like catching a criminal.’
Online discussion groups came under scrutiny after Kohberger was denied bail, while prosecutors revealed that his DNA was found on knife sheaths lying next to the victims’ bodies.

Coffindaffer believed that given the evidence against Kohberger, it was not far-fetched to believe that the criminology student withheld a digital test.
Coffindaffer is among many who think Kohberger used the Pappa Rodgers handle on Facebook to talk about the killings.
In the popular r/MoscowMurders Reddit group, user InsideLooking posted a number of speculations about the murder as police remained tight-lipped about the full details of the murders.
One post read: ‘The killer parked behind the house. Access to property through tree line. Entered the sliding door and left it open.

The prints did not match those of the victims or anyone in the household, leading investigators to believe they were left by the killer.
The user also insisted that the white Hyundai Elantra would be the key to solving the case, predicting that it would lead the police to the suspect.
Amidst his speculations, InsideLooking drew attention to his detailed post with several comments.

A similar incident happened to Facebook user Pappa Rodgers, a member of the Idaho Murders-Cases Discussion Group.
In a post to the group flagged by coffindaffer, Rodgers wrote: ‘In the evidence released, the murder weapon has been consistent as a large fixed blade knife. This makes me believe that they found the sheath.
Rodgers appeared to insist that the sheath was real and even gushed about it to other members, who accused him of communicating ‘like a serial killer’.
An administrator of the group later clarified that, despite Rodgers’ apparent authority in the group, he was never an administrator or moderator.
Christine Cameron wrote: ‘He was on it and argued with people constantly and did some really creepy things and posted questions similar to Brian’s guilt questions.
‘We removed Pappa Rodgers at 7:10 p.m., before Brian’s arrest. He created a group page and there were 6 people in it.
‘No one has heard from Pappa Rodger since his arrest.’

An administrator of the group said Rodgers has been silent since Kohberger’s arrest.
Kohberger, 28, was charged with the murder of Ethan Chapin, 20, Kaylee Goncalves, 21, Zana Kernodle, 20, and Madison Mogen, 21, and was being flown to Moscow, where the student was found dead at his off-campus home Had gone. ,
Kohberger was seen smiling during a brief court appearance on Thursday in which police and prosecutors revealed their bomb case against him, including how his DNA was found on a knife sheath at the scene.
He was denied bail on Thursday during a brief court appearance in Moscow shortly after an affidavit of prosecutors’ case against him was shared online.
Kohberger spent most of the 10-minute hearing looking directly at Judge Megan Marshall as she read him his rights and the five counts and answered “yes” when asked if he understood each count.
At one point, Kohberger was pictured smiling at his attorney, Anne Taylor. It’s not clear what’s causing the grin six days after he became infamous as America’s most infamous alleged mass murderer.
Kohberger remained emotionless throughout, but briefly rocked back and forth when the judge told him he was facing the death penalty. He will return to court on January 12 for a status hearing.
The manner in which the killer entered the three-storey house in the early hours of November 13 to kill four students sleeping in different rooms and floors has raised questions about his motives.

Court papers included details of how Kohberger’s DNA was found on knife sheaths close to the bodies of Maddie Mogen and Kaylee Goncalves.
The documents also described how a surviving roommate, Dylan Mortensen, came face-to-face with a masked man, believed to be Kohbegger, in the hallway of their shared home shortly after 4 a.m. on November 13 at the time of the murders.
Mortensen heard what she believed to be her roommate’s cries, left her room and saw a man with bushy eyebrows in a black mask. She froze in fear, watched him pass, then waited six hours before calling the police.
More details were shared about Kohberger allegedly stalking his victims. His phone was found in the vicinity of his Moscow home 12 times before the November murders, starting in mid-August.
Kaylee Goncalves’ family was also in court, with her mother shaking her head and crying as the murder charge related to her daughter was read.
