Idaho Murders Suspect Bryan Kohberger’s Family Issues Statement
The family of Bryan Kohberger, the suspect charged in the murder of four University of Idaho students, has released a statement saying they care deeply about the victims and will continue to love and support their son.
NewsNation reporter Brian Entin posted the statement from Kohberger’s family on Twitter on Sunday.
The family statement read: “We care deeply about the four families who have lost their precious children. There are no words that can adequately express the grief we feel, and we pray for them every day.
He continued: “We will continue with the legal process and as a family we will love and support our son and our brother. We have fully cooperated with law enforcement in an effort to seek the truth and promote one’s presumption of innocence rather than judging unknown facts and making false assumptions.”
Police arrested 28-year-old Kohberger at his parents’ home in Chestnuthill Township, Pennsylvania on Dec. 30. He is charged with the murders of college students Kaylee Goncalves, Madison Mogen, Xana Kernodle, and Ethan Chapin in mid-November.
Police believe Kohberger broke into the students’ shared living space “with the intent to commit murder” before traveling across the country to visit his parents in Pennsylvania, where he was eventually arrested.
