Would there be any reason for the prosecution to offer BK a plea deal to avoid the death penalty? Or do you think they might be absolutely set on pursuing the death penalty and so determined to go to trial?

The trial won’t be done in that area. These detectives and prosecutors don’t seem like the brightest bunch. Experts said that the list that of what was taken from his house was shockingly low. There wasn’t much in the way of evidence. It may come down to the computer.

I had figured he'd take a plea deal to avoid the death penalty, but reading on here about the lack of evidence (like the stuff taken from his house), I'm not sure anymore. He's so arrogant, I do wonder if he'll decide to fire the public defender and take over the case himself, a la Bundy. The spotlight would be on him, and that might be irresistible.

Ashley Banfield show - guy interviewed a former employee of the Mad Greek, where Xana and Maddie worked. This person said Bryan came in and was very specific how he wanted his vegan pizza prepared. They showed a picture of the Mad Greek, a very small space, so if they were working when he came in, he almost certainly would have noticed them. It's like the only place in town that serves vegan food - and it's known for it.
Some news about the gag order being made stronger - so that current employees of the Mad Greek couldn't talk to the press, so it was lucky this reporter found the one who worked there in the past, but when Maddie and Xana worked there and also when Bryan came in.

"It's okay. I'm here to help you". !
The words he said to Xana that Dylan heard before he killed her!
Xana and Maddie were servers at the Mad Greek.
Did Xana say this to Kohberger at the Mad Greek? Did he say this to her as a last taunt so she'd remember who he was, did it refer to something that happened there he was pissed about after she said this to him as a server?
Good god, I suddenly thought of that sentence and realized this might be the meaning of that horrifying sentence.

Back in my day (which was admittedly a long time ago), there was a certain type of socially inept, creeper guy. Often they would have good credentials on paper.
They would tend to go after girls who were cute but not beautiful. (These girls were still out if their league.)
When these girls rejected them, they would get angry. You could almost see them thinking “But you aren’t beautiful! You should be GRATEFUL for my attention!”
Now we have incels, who certainly aren’t accomplished even on paper.
Anyway, I can see BK thinking he was some kind of catch and these cute but chubby, cute but not beautiful girls should be grateful for his attention.
Or maybe there was actually some sort of negative interaction at the restaurant.

^ I was discussing this last night. He ignored the beautiful Dylan, not not these three “all-American” girls who felt attainable to him. He was outraged they wouldn’t respond to him.
I am sure at least the two waitress roommates discussed him because they likely waited on him, and I’m sure he got really fucking weird with them. No idea if all three girls had discussed him following all of them on SM.
He definitely knew how to stay on the right side of stalker laws by only sending “how are you?” The sad and terrifying reality is that a stalker like BK isn’t someone who can be stopped. I’m sure the girls all decided that their only option was to ignore him, which they 100% did, and look where they are. Women should not have to live in fear, I see it as trauma, they know they are sitting ducks for lunatics and that’s a horrible feeling.
The only other thing the girls could have done is block him, go private, or shut down their social media altogether. I think it’s time for law enforcement to start teaching women that if they want to stop a stalker, they’ve got to get off of SM. Stop feeding the beast, you’ve got a shot that they might get bored and move on.

I got blamed on earlier threads for “blaming the victim,” but people (not just women) have to start taking personal safety seriously.
Get off social media or avoid posting anything too personal. Install secularity measures. Even inexpensive bars and latches slow down burglars.
Get plenty of outdoor lighting and use it. Get cameras if you can. If you get cameras, position one of them where the camera can’t be reached. In my area, there was a group of burglars who just sauntered up to Ring cameras and put tape over them.

[quote] Even inexpensive bars and latches slow down burglars.
When my local police department did a security survey of my house they gave this advice. They said if a burglar wants to get into your house, they will. The idea is to make your house less of a target and more difficult to get into so they’ll go to a different house.
For instance, a bush that blocks the view of a burglar from the street by a first floor window. The burglar could sit there all night and work on that window because nobody would see him. Yet if the hedges were trimmed, he may just move on to another.

One thing I found ironic about this case is how Kaylee's family insisted that Kaylee was always careful and hyper aware of safety and her surroundings. Meanwhile, their daughter lived in a flophouse with no security features and all kinds of people coming and going.
Here's a pic of all the roommates. I'm not really seeing how people find them all that attractive. They all look cheap aside from Xana who is the only one who appears remotely natural.

These kids wouldn't have been afraid of burglars because they had so little worth stealing, and their personal possessions were in their rooms behind combination locks. Definitely not a house that would be targeted by burglars, unless someone was under the impression that they had an interesting amount of drugs, and I don't think these girls could afford an interesting amount of drugs.
And if the girls were brought up by MAGA idiots, they probably thought they were as safe as anyone, living in a very white small town. The right wing likes to project all fears for personal safety onto Others, immigrants or POC or drag queens who read stories to kids, and ignore the fact that all-white small towns aren't safe at all. There's lots of crime in white small towns, much of it drug-related, but they still like to believe that crime is an "urban" problem, and assure themselves that white neighbors and guns are enough.

About the online address problem - look, I'm old, and I think the crime rate was even higher back when nearly everybody had their name, address and phone number in the stupid phone book - copies of which were everywhere, like in phone booths and public places.
And many criminals just pick people and places randomly - like Bundy wandering around looking for a girl that was his 'type'.
Whoever said secure your house was right. Cameras in hard to reach places, a dog or two if you can, I checked on "inside burglar bars" once and they weren't too expensive - well, maybe $2k for a 4 bedroom house. Make sure you figure out the possible fire hazard, so that you can open the bars on the inside yourself to get out - you might need a key? Be purposeful and alert when you go anywhere - if you think someone's following you, drive to the police station and not home - etc etc. I'm sure there's more advice online. Or take a self defense class, with or without gun training.

Jackie Fischer, the owner of the Mad Greek restaurant in Moscow slammed a People report where a former unnamed employee claimed that Kohberger had stopped by the eatery twice in the weeks before the killings and ordered vegan pizza.
Two of the victims, Madison Mogen, 21, and Xana Kernodle, 20, worked at the Mad Greek as waitresses. The employee said that the alleged killer’s order was notable because Kohberger, who an aunt told The Post had “very, very weird” dietary restrictions, wanted to ensure that no animal products touched his food.

The biggest issue with all the internet heat around this case is going to be finding some impartial jurors.

We're annoyed because 1) Security equipment is the landlord's responsibility, not the renter's, and 2) the repeated rants over what those kids should have done comes across as victim-blaming, which every decent person loathes.
The nervous nellies can feel free to bore everyone by saying what security measure you're implementing yourselves, and what you think is reasonable for various income levels. If the NNs do that they will still be bores, of course, but they will be much less offensive.

R77, that’s a fascinating post, no sarcasm. I’m the purple-hands troll, & I’m convinced he has OCD and is obsessively washing his hands (maybe the gloves he wore a lot had latex and he’s allergic?? Idk.). I think we can all agree that he is quite extreme, likely neurotic, and for sure neuro-divergent. And hearing how adamant he is about his food (actually a better description is “militant”) I wouldn’t be shocked at all if his diet ties everything together, stagger things have happened. Anything is possible with this guy so far.
I want to point out that while he was indeed a complete moron during the crime in too many ways to list, in other ways, he actually did a decent job of covering his tracks. Right now, aside from minuscule DNA on sheath, the rest is truly circumstantial. Unless they come up with more DNA, this is not a slam dunk. The prosecutor will have a narrow path to victory. And if BK actually fights for himself, and I think he’s going to, he may just wiggle out somehow. Yes, he pinged in the towers that show his route, but there’s nothing that proves he went in that house, especially if the sheath is touch dna. Dylan’s testimony will never be conclusive to a jury. Literally the only case the prosecutor can make is that they must see “the totality of the circumstances”.
The one bright spot is that he followed them on social media. I’m pretty shocked he didn’t have a burner phone, if he had done this using a burner, he would be free, though I have no idea if burners could allow a criminal to surf the web completely undetected? The user would need a VPN scrambler, a Tor browser, and god only knows what else, though I think there has got yo be other methods to track a “dark web burner”, any one know if it’s possible to completely hide your web browsing on a burner phone? If it’s possible to have a second device that can be 100% cloaked, that means there will be a copycat who learns from BK’s mistakes and does exactly that because killers evolve. If the killer uses a burner phone and leaves his cell in the house, they’re home free.

Who says the DNA found on the sheath was “minuscule”? You’re assuming facts.
Second, if your DNA is found at a crime scene where you have never been before and it has no business being there, on a piece of equipment that housed the murder weapon no less, the ballgame is over. A decent prosecutor can get a guilty verdict on that alone, throwing out all the other evidence.

If they have blood, that would be a big deal. However, because it’s a party house, the defense will simply say he had once been there like so many others.

R86, for the life of me I cannot remember the source on a “minuscule” example, I can’t cite a source for that so take it with a huge grain of salt. But let’s pretend just for now that it is true that it is a teeny tiny sample. Would that influence a jury, hmmm? I am saying that I think it could. Soon enough we will know how big that sample was…
R89, what am I missing? It looks highly circumstantial to me. Aside from that single DNA sample, there is no other DNA so far. It is a series of actions that point toward his guilt (I believe he did this FYI), but there are *plenty* of cases where someone was wrongly convicted and later it was proven definitively that the accused was indeed innocent and it was all based on circumstantial evidence. I think it is possible for a lawyer to argue that if we have no other DNA, he must be found innocent because our country has a history of wrongful convictions that occurred in similar cases. “You must err on the side of innocent because tomorrow this could be you on trial”. So what am I missing for real?

I'm a lifelong vegetarian (not vegan) and it's not very weird to ask questions about the kitchen before ordering. For example, a restaurant with veggie burgers on the menu will often cook the patties on the same grill as the beef burgers. It's not really vegetarian if it's cooked in animal fat. I used to ask, but now I just know and don't bother ordering it unless it's a completely vegetarian restaurant. My friends who are vegan and vegetarian tend to ask similar questions or might ask about possible hidden meat sources in the food (e.g. burritos at a Mexican restaurant may have animal fat in the beans or their could be oyster sauce in your veggie Pad Thai).
Maybe servers hate this, but these questions shouldn't come as a surprise and I'm pretty sure they hear it a lot from fellow vegetarians and vegans. It's probably the most normal thing I've heard about BK so far.

R102, I do think it's unusual to request separate pots/pans that have never touched meat, especially if it's not a house BK lived in. But I also have to admit there is a preference among many vegetarians and vegans for the kitchen itself to be all vegetarian or all vegan. It just reduces the possibility of anything touching meat, no risk of encountering anything on a poorly cleaned pan, etc. and that really is a comfort, especially if someone is doing this for animal welfare reasons. It would be a "plus" but not something most would ever ask for.
But if Bryan was willing to eat at Mad Greek then he must have known those pots/pans, plates, and utensils had all previously touched meat. So I'm skeptical of the claim and wonder if he used it as an excuse to not have to eat at his aunt's house or so he could bring in better outside food. If I was arrested for murdering 4 people, I wouldn't expect an aunt to immediately release a statement saying I was an OCD type of eater. I think BK definitely committed the murders but his aunt sounds like a twit.

I'm not r104 - in fact I have posted on all 12 of these threads maybe half a dozen times - but I have certainly read that BK made his uncle and aunt throw out pots and pans and/or buy dedicated pans for his vegan cooking - that doesn't mean that it is true, r106. People post a lot of crap on threads like these, and even in the press when they have nothing else to talk about.
When Anne Heche died, it was printed in many papers that she was probably drunk, because there was a photo of a bottle with a red cap in her car. It was immediately assumed that it was a vodka bottle. Over a month later, the tox report came back - and there was no alcohol in her system. That bottle was never identified, other than it had a red cap on it.
All of that talk - much of it stated as fact - came to nothing. Sometimes crazy people do crazy shit for no reason at all.

What has been said is that BK's aunt and uncle bought him new pots/pans (that hadn't been tainted by meat). Do you suppose his family converted to veganism and also used the new "untainted" OR do you think that they bought them for BK and his diet alone and continued to use their regular pots and pans?
Why is this an issue, you ask? Ask R104, who tried to correct my post at R103. He or she is the person who erroneously stated that BK had people throw away pots/pans instead of simply buying a new set that hadn't been contaminated with meat.

Just a thought, and I'm no psychiatrist but Kohberger has an aversion to meat, does not eat it, wouldn't eat it, did not want to eat off pots and pans that had been used in the cooking of meat. He was not just a strict vegan but it's reported "The former aunt described Kohberger's food restrictions as "very, very weird" and "far beyond vegan." Has been reported by others. In jail he has requested a vegan diet.
Humans ARE 'meat'. Kohberger's last name ends in 'berger' (burger/meat). Does his strict veganism reveal a subconscious hatred of himself, 'KohBERGER'/ 'burger' who is 'meat'?
Well, that's my take on it. Any psychiatrists out there having this thought?

This is a generalization, but of the vegans i know the ones who are most militant were often bullied in school and I imagine felt pretty defenseless. I think "saving the animals" has something to do with feeling helpless as a kid and sort of preyed upon by the bullies. Maybe they wish someone had rescued them? They feel a kinship with these hunted animals so they dedicate their lives to protecting them. Sometimes it feels like there is an underlying hatred of humanity there.

Today's Blind Items - The Detective There is a private detective hanging out in the northwest. Actually, there are several, but, there is one that is not working for the defense or the one that is working for an insurance company. No, this other detective is actually working for a pair of documentary producers who want to see if there is an angle, other than the obvious. These producers specialize in offering alternatives to what everyone thinks are slam dunk cases. The investigator, and his team, probably believe the standard narrative. No one knows though. What everyone does know now though is that one of the parents offered up an offspring for sex for much of their tween years. And another parent sold parent/offspring naked videos. The question is whether the documentary will be finished and aired before trial. Will it sway a jury?

R161 is correct, anything posted by that CDAN creep is 99% likely to be bullshit.
However, since that "blind item" seems to be describing someone nosing around Idaho, looking for any nasty bullshit they can post on youtube rather than facts, there might be a rare grain of truth in the first part. But since he's always liked to post his own jerkoff fantasies about famous women being secret prostitutes, he obviously made up the bit about the poor murdered girl being "offered up". He wishes, the old perv.

Saw that video this morning, the one at r165. I think we already knew that Xana and Ethan were killed after the other two, and that she fought back. The part about her fingers is gross, but probably accurate.
People from the scene said early on that the crime scene was 'chaotic' - I always believed that was Xana's room, left in shambles after she and Ethan tried to fight off their killer. Some of the furniture they removed a few weeks ago, from the house, had noticeable blood stains all over them. I believed these were from Xana's room.
The new item re Ethan's death and where he was found counters what the police reported though. Although I'm inclined to believe what was reported here.

From the video at R165 even though that coroner answered the interviewer's question 'were they found in beds?' as 'uhm, yes' the coroner did not specify 'all' were found in their beds, just answered the question, as 'yes, (SOME) were found in their bed. Was trying maybe to hold back information for the legal process of the courts to review. Same with the knife question, 'were these all puncture wounds?' the coroner's answer was again, not going into the detail of all the wounds but addressing the were they puncture wounds question, 'well it was a pretty large knife so really hard to call them puncture wounds, and they were definitely stabbing' and so she does not say there were NOT slash wounds just that the knife was too large to call them puncture wounds and stabbing wounds.

All this is dying down, understandably, but there's what I think a new detail: Bryan was seen at the Idaho University student union and had stared at a number of women and made them uncomfortable - not breaking eye contact, that sort of thing.
Then this expert says that women have this special "instinct" about whether a person is dangerous and possibly might harm someone and they should report it.
But this guy was looking at women -- wouldn't men also have that "instinct" if some crazed lunatic was giving them intense or murderous glares as well?
Just the whole 4 minute news clip seemed strange. Imagine how cops would feel, especially at a university, if lots of girls started coming in and saying, "I have this great instinct and the way this particular guy stared at me made me think he's dangerous, so do something!" I assume that's what she's suggesting but what law do you break when you glare at someone? Don't autistic people do that all the time, whether it's sexual or not?
And his students at WSU complained about him being a jackass about grading their papers. Is that a red flag too? I guess I just don't understand what's going on with this clip, but it's a new clue that he'd been casing the joint (the Student Union) and it may not have been a case of him running into the Xana and Maddie as waitresses at the vegan restaurant (though that still seems likely) - oh and how did he find the waitresses on Instagram and then find out their roommate Kaylee was on there too?

I read that the Mad Greek was known for having the best vegan food around - though I don't know if it only served vegan food. I doubt it. Though if it was part of their reputation, they may have bragged that they use separate pans to prepare the vegan food, which wouldn't be difficult for a restaurant that served a lot of it. Or maybe Bryan quit worrying about it to that degree.
Someone at one of his jails announced they would not be making his food in specially bought pans. I think they said he was eating peanut butter sandwiches and cereal with almond milk - forgot where I read that. Don't know why I care. Wish they'd just give him gruel - some gross concoction of legumes and barley stirred together into a gross looking stew (is that what gruel is?)

There seems to be a LOT of off-the-record indicators that those girls notified Pi Beta Phi Sorority about what had happened, maybe as early as 8 a.m. on Sunday, and almost certainly by 10 a.m. The frat kids were at that house and around it. Whether Dylan was "petrified" or not, she's got a hell of a lot of explaining to do on the witness stand about that morning, and unless Kohberger pleads guilty, she WILL be the star witness of the whole trial. Bethany too is in hot water. It is inherently unbelievable that those girls slept through what happened. The frat kids came over to the house that morning, cleared drugs out of the house, and THEN called families and the cops. The crime scene is going to be shown to be so polluted with tampering that it just might afford Kohberger a way out of a conviction.

R197, the point you raise IS a huge puzzlement. But there is no doubt in my mind, based on things relatives and friends of the deceased have said, that the killings were known to quite a few people before the police were notified. Indeed, how could somebody have gone into those rooms and removed anything (flushing it down toilets is the most obvious way of getting rid of it), but then then the whole grisly story just doesn't add up. Why weren't there bloody footprints everywhere, how could there have only been one found? People have said that the carnage would have guaranteed that the house would have been reeking of the smell of blood and other things, how did those 2 girls not notice this? Where were they really, was Dylan on the 2nd floor, where it seems that the affidavit indicates she saw the dude in black and a mask go past her, or was she not on the ground floor after all, like everyone speculated to begin with? How could Kohberger have possibly done all of this in 14 minutes, it seems nuts to think that. Did he have an accomplice? Was he the accomplice, getaway driver? The cops know the answers to all this, or most of it, certainly. As far as a trial is concerned, Dylan is going to have to explain a lot of this stuff, on the stand, and being young, and scared, and just a defenseless college girl are not going to shield her from having to answer the questions. Based on what I have seen in various places about this case, it seems clear that the townsfolk of that town are pretty convinced the scene was overrun with college kids before the cops were summoned. We'll see how it turns out. I doubt any evidence is getting released until the preliminary hearing in June (unless it gets postponed, which wouldn't be a big surprise). -R195

If she were truly that scared, WHY didn't she call 911 from inside her locked bedroom? I'm not buying the 'stricken deer in the headlights' claims. I feel the same way about Bethany. I don't believe she slept through what happened. A former tenant of the ground floor has said that you could hear people moving around on the 3 floor from the bottom, and everything else that happened all over the house. A story has been concocted for those girls, just as the police have put out a pretty creative version of nearly all the circumstances about this case so far. Those 2 girls will be raked over the coals when this comes to trial.

Actually, very easily. He could have easily been in and out of there in well under 10 minutes. It would have maybe taken a minute or two to kill the girls upstairs - heavy stabbing and slashing doesn't take that long, a few well-placed stab wounds would have killed either. He then booked it downstairs, and took a few minute to kill X and E. That part might have taken longer, given the fight they put up, but still a minute or two would do it.
It's not like he was standing there, telegraphing his intentions - he came in with a mission to kill, so he came into the bedrooms stabbing like a piston. He didn't want any survivors to ID him, or make too much noise. He took them out quickly.

"I find it intriguing how on Oct 21 he received an email that he wasn’t meeting expectations and coincidentally on that same night, Buddy the dog’s life was brutally taken with a blade 3 miles from where the murders ended up happening on Nov 13..."

Now I'm wondering if moving the car back was the first step in permanently getting out of Dodge. If nothing else, getting dropped as a TA gave him a good excuse for it. If he had been teaching 20 hours/week, he would have lost his full tuition waiver and a roughly $16k stipend, plus medical and dental benefits.
So, did the stress of knowing his free ride was about to end precipitate his rampage, or was this the murder version of someone deciding to take a hotel room's coffee maker, blow dryer, and all the towels because they had no intention of ever returning—never stopping to think that their credit card was on file?

He was just another asshole who blamed women for all of his problems and challenges in life.
I have zero sympathy for this POS, however, I also recognize that many young men have been radicalized online, in the name of an objective, that blames women for all challenges men face as they’re navigating through life.
What’s ironic, is that this type of indoctrination and radicalization into INCEL culture, makes life for young men so much harder, while never addressing that the reasons behind not being socially accepted by women, and not underscoring that incels aren’t really accepted by men who are their peers, too.
Being socially awkward isn’t a sin. There’s nothing wrong with being socially awkward. But if you suffer from shyness, or have a difficult time getting along with others?
Understand that it is YOU who must adjust to others.
And if you choose to not adjust or fit in?
Then fucking good for you!
Go at it from your own, unique perspective and succeed in spite of it.
But the moment you decide to blame others for your issues, without taking an ounce of responsibility, well, that’s when you lose the plot.
YOU are at minimum, 50% or more, responsible for your outcomes in YOUR life, not a group of people who have the right to not want to spend time with you, or who do not want to fuck you.
Incels have been scammed by this bullshit narrative. And plenty of these guys drawn to incel culture are very intelligent, yet they cannot figure out that they’re being manipulated via mainstream, counter culture propaganda.

NewsNation/Ashley Banfield doesn't seem much better than a tabloid. The source for him being fired from his TA position was a TikTok video made by someone with no connection to the case or to either university. It was picked up and rerun by several news stations before anyone flagged it. This is the letter she showed as "proof" in her video.
|by Anonymous||reply 264||February 10, 2023 4:54 AM|
Is this a similar source for all our other details -- that he went upstairs to kill Maddie and Kaylee first, and then killed Ethan in the doorway, and fought with Xana and she had piecings on her hands where she tried to stop the knife? And that he'd been in the neighborhood with his cellphone pinging or whatever, ten or twelve times recently - and that he'd eaten at the Mad Greek?
A bunch of stuff came out from somewhere - then the strict gag order. Then the parents made a fuss about how stringent the gag order was (a Banfield guest 'sleuth' guy found an employee of the Mad Greek who worked there when Bryan came in and at that time, Maddie and Xana worked there, but when the sleuth talked to him, he'd already quit)
Now, after the parents complained the gag order was too broad, we get this about Bryan being reprimanded (and that list Ashleigh had was very specific - which dates he was reprimanded and then when he was finally officially fired as TA at the end of the semester) -- and one of the reprimands was the same day Buddy the dog was killed with a knife.... oh loads of stuff.
Is it all suspect? Or just the latest bit about her yelling? (we'd already heard she'd opened her door three times - I mean how did we get all that granular detail already?) I guess I just assume we have the same type leaks -- lots of reporters swarming to get their few minutes on tv -- didn't Nancy Grace set up a desk outside the murder house lol?? -- I know it's not funny but it's like the "ambulance chasers" you hear about. Daily Mail probably has 20 people assigned to Moscow/Pullman.

And completely agree with R252. If you suck at social situations, you find a way to grow by facing your fears and learning appropriate ways to interact and understand people. Not becoming entitled and dehumanizing women. As a woman I grew up with social anxiety but I didn’t teach myself to objectify and dehumanize others to feel better about myself. I put myself into more and more social situations as a form of exposure and observed, listened, and learned. Small talk is not the terrifying thing it once was to me years ago, although still draining. I developed the skills, though. This guy (and other incels with social awkwardness) skipped all of that self-reflection and took the misogyny koolaid as a shortcut. What a waste of a human life.

Since he only started at WSU in September, October seems very early to be firing him from his position as TA. Without even getting through a full semester? He would probably have had to do something illegal/dangerous to his students to be fired that fast. Normally there's a whole series of procedures to go through, especially since firing him as TA would have implications for him continuing on in the PhD programme. So, consider me sceptical.

R273 The Ashleigh Banfield list (that may have come from a letter?) - or at least the one I saw on her show - said he was fired in December when the semester was ending. He was called in for several meetings and even an "improvement plan" meeting before finally being let go - after all the classes were done for the Fall semester.
I think he may have been spoken to as early as three or four weeks into the semester, in September, but they gave him three or four meetings to discuss things before making the decision to axe him - finally official December 20? something like that. After the murders, November 13, he went back to the university and people remarked on his changed (improved) demeanor. But I guess there were enough problems to still get rid of him, as a TA anyway, and maybe that meant he had to quit due to tuition or whatever.

Being a TA isn't really a job someone is "hired" for. It's a part of one's responsibilities as a student in a PhD program. I don't they can just "fire" someone from a TA position without kicking them out of their academic program. I'm also skeptical.

He may have been on probationary status for his assistantship, like many other (most?) new employees.

R284- That professor, though apparently highly respected in the true crime community (whatever that means), is not an academic by any stretch. Her books are pulpy, true crime drama narratives (though nominally nonfiction) and her claim to fame is corresponding with someone called the BTK killer in prison. PhD programs can be competitive, but there are state school programs where the financial trade-off of getting free TAs in exchange for free tuition is much more balanced in the school's favor than the students'.
i am more curious as to how his professor at DeSales (the pulpy true crime writer) got an academic teaching position with absolutely no academic research credentials, real-world experience in criminology, or peer-reviewed papers.

Sorry, I know this has been publicly debunked, but I can’t shake the vibe of incipient lesbian couple between Maddie and Kaylee. They were hiding in plain sight. I don’t care that they both had boyfriends, that BFF girls pose that way for photo shoots now, etc. There was something more than friendship going on with those two.

He probably stalked the house enough to realize Maddie was on the third floor and would be alone because Kaylee had moved out, but then wasn't smart enough to watch the house a little bit to see if anyone else was awake, or check their socials where he would have probably found out Kaylee was back for the weekend, and he didn't pay enough attention to realize Ethan's SUV was there.

One of the qualities of sociopaths is they lack judgement. They are unable to see themselves as others see them and have a lack of understanding. Poor insight. Kohberger wasn't 'stupid'. He was a sociopath. If you ever want to read an interesting book read Mask of Sanity. Hervey Cleckley (author of The Mask of Sanity)
Hervey Cleckley’s List of Psychopathy and Sociopath Symptoms:
1. Considerable superficial charm and average or above-average intelligence.
2. Absence of delusions and other signs of irrational thinking.
3. Absence of anxiety or other “neurotic” symptoms. Considerable poise, calmness and verbal facility.
4. Unreliability, disregard for obligations, no sense of responsibility, in matters of little and great import.
5. Untruthfulness and insincerity.
6. Antisocial behavior which is inadequately motivated and poorly planned, seeming to stem from an inexplicable impulsiveness.
7. Inadequately motivated antisocial behavior.
8. Poor judgment and failure to learn from experience.
9. Pathological egocentricity. Total self-centeredness and an incapacity for real love and attachment.
10. General poverty of deep and lasting emotions.
11. Lack of any true insight; inability to see oneself as others do.
12. Ingratitude for any special considerations, kindness, and trust.
13. Fantastic and objectionable behavior, after drinking and sometimes even when not drinking. Vulgarity, rudeness, quick mood shifts, pranks for facile entertainment.
14. No history of genuine suicide attempts.
15. An impersonal, trivial, and poorly integrated sex life.
16. Failure to have a life plan and to live in any ordered way (unless it is for destructive purposes or a sham).

Because one parent was on tv every day tirelessly pushing that narrative.
Sure, he would occasionally add a half-assed disclaimer that because the FBI and police were denying him the carte blanche he believed he was owed, he couldn’t say that with 100% certainty. But then he’d immediately follow that by saying he had his own private investigator who was filling him in on everything.
The point he was intent on making was that Kaylee and Madison’s wounds did not match. Our Girl Kaylee had “big, open gouges” denoting anger and targeting, while, I guess, Our Girl Maddie was just delicately poked while she slept. He used language like that in every interview to be sure that everyone knew that Kaylee was #1. And it worked.

Another thing pointed out on Banfield show last night: the first of the twelve times Bryan was in the neighborhood of the murder house as in August. (he had just moved to Pullman to go to school that semester). I think the theory that he saw Maddie at the Mad Greek, perhaps in August, may be correct. And he may have followed her home that night after she got off work.
R324 Last night there was a brief video posted of Ashleigh Banfield and she specifically said it was Maddie; that though Bryan followed both girls on Instagram - he had only "liked" two of Kaylee's posts -- while he had liked every single one of Maddie's. And he had multiple photo of Maddie downloaded on his phone - but none of Kaylee. I can't find the video now of the mess of NewsNation videos but I distinctly remember it - it was about 2 minutes long, and Ashleigh said it was a 'unpdate' to her earlier interview of some expert with sources - who said he knew which girl it was but didn't want to say but he thought it was obvious which one if you'd been following the case. (which I thought was weird because I have been following it!) Ashleigh may not have known either -- but a while later, came back with a video naming Maddie, so maybe she set out to find out who it was, since the guy clearly knew.

R317, thank you so much for posting this.
People who aren’t in law enforcement and/or who aren’t involved in forensic psychology, just do NOT understand what and whom they are dealing with, when an actual psychopath is in their midst.
I believe most people would be horrified if they were able to see how people they’re close to or casually acquainted with, act behind the scenes, when no one else is watching.
REAL psychopaths are usually rare, but they are out there, and some of us know one right now, and haven’t a clue.
Fortunately, most psychopaths are not as smart as they think they are, and are usually sniffed out and caught, because they just cannot help fucking up, due to their lack of impulse control, and (thankfully), modern technology/surveillance.
Yes, infringement on our privacy sucks, but when it comes down to tracking down real predators, I’m willing to give some privacy up, as I myself, am not on the wrong side of the law, and most of the population isn’t, either.
Safety of society FIRST.
It’s a shame it got this far with this asshole, and I’m genuinely sorry that these poor kids died as a result of an unchecked psychopath, however, at least he was pinned Dow downed and caged, before attacking again, which he would have inevitably done so, had he not been apprehended.
BIG props to FBI & MPD for working together and getting this asshole behind bars.
Yep. There are some really shitty cops out there, and thankfully, there are some really good LEOs, too.

R334 Thank you for appreciating my post of 317. I read Mask of Sanity years ago and it’s quite an eye opener. When I read of Kohberger following those kids on Instagram and that he sent them messages like, ‘hi, how are you’ I knew of such messages. I’ve gotten a few and it made me back off Instagram, though I am not on in any capacity but professional. I always delete those comments and block the senders but I saw how just being ‘out there’ can be a real problem. My personal info is not out there, thank god.
I am the one who posted that pic of Kohberger and that funhouse pic from a NJ amusement park. It’s not meant to be funny. I see it as his warped inside cracked self, and I find him frightening. I know that to some sounds ludicrous but I really do.

R336, please humbly allow me to affirm something for you…
Psychopaths like BK EASILY find and target potential victims on social media.
It doesn’t matter if the victims are male or female, a real psychopath will study BOTH via social media.
Interestingly enough, some, like BK, will become optimally physically fit, in order to game for any and all obstacles.
This is why Bryan was able to pull these murders off. He gamed the odds to his favor. He lost weight, became agile and went as far as engaging in boxing lessons, all in the quest to dominate anyone standing in the way of his objective: finding his perfect victim, and murdering her.
BK is absolutely frightening. But it’s better to have the ability to identify a fucked up person BEFORE they strike, and take measures against falling victim to them, than not.
People, particularly women, need to understand that there are men out there who they have no idea exist, who are monitoring their social media and online activities, all in efforts to eventually bring great and/or fatal harm to them. This is also true for some men who might also fall victims to these pieces of excrement.
Be aware. Know what and who you’re dealing with. Be skeptical. Be VERY skeptical.
It’s OK, if it saves your life, and/or the lives of your loved ones.

"Sorry, I know this has been publicly debunked, but I can’t shake the vibe of incipient lesbian couple between Maddie and Kaylee."
They were definitely soul sisters from childhood. I wonder if the psycho killer found their relationship to be erotic, and he actually targeted both, having clearly studied and followed them obsessively.
BTW, I had a similar childhood friend (except that we were both boys). We were inseparable through age 20 and slept in each others' beds together. Lots of cuddling, but no sex - despite my aspirations. He had a girlfriend in high school, but it was understood that we were like twins, and our parents treated each of us like their sons. Small town, 1980. Only a few people suspected that we were a gay couple and it was sort of a joke. His creepy priest would try to seduce us. I was a year older and went away to college. He'd visit and stay in my dorm room on weekends, sometimes with his girlfriend, whom I adored. The plan was for them to transfer to my university and all rent a house together. I finally came out to them. There were absurd attempts to find me a boyfriend. He died in a horrific accident at age 21. It was a fluke that I wasn't with him. 40+ years later, it still feels like half of me is gone. I feel so sad for the parents of those kids.

R347, I'd guess that he was somewhere on the autism spectrum, in addition to being a psychopath.
And that's why psychiatric diagnoses can be based on "Something like 8 out of 12 characteristics on the following list", instead of being straightforward. People can have a personality disorder and have a mood disorder or an autism disorder at the same time, or all three, which is why diagnosing mental illness is so difficult and variable.
|by Anonymous||reply 349||February 24, 2023 11:17 PM|
Yes, R349. Plenty of psychopaths are complete oafs.
I think the key characteristic is a lack of empathy. An incapacity for loving other people - or even considering them worthy of respect as a human being.
I could be wrong, but the level of a different trait - sadism - is what leads some psychopaths to enjoy torture and murder, and others to be satisfied just to lie, cheat, steal their way to win over their rivals (the CEOs of the world). And maybe intelligence means that though they might be happy to kill a rival, they're smart enough to decide that might end up hurting themselves.
Psychology has many levels, and there are categorie or types of people, but at the end of the day, everybody is unique and will have a different set and level of traits than somebody else.

"Imagine his shock and rage when he went out into the real world and other women didn’t think he was Mr. Wonderful."
I had a co-worker like that, years ago, before anyone knew about incels or MRA crazies. He was odd about women, sometimes he pulled this Big Strong Man act and clearly expected the women to look up to him, other times he acted like a child and expected to be spoiled, and he'd get irrationally angry if a woman corrected or even contradicted him. He had indeed been raised with home schooling and several older sisters, expected women to treat him like his doting religious mother had, and got very angry when they didn't. In fact he generally spent his time being baffled by a world he didn't understand, as neither his upbringing or his IQ were any help on that front, but it didn't stop him from trying to play the dominant male.
He got married to some dweeby girl, and all the fraus asked each other why the hell any female would marry him, and then he left for a job in another state. And then we heard that his young wife had died under mysterious circumstances... and we never heard another thing! Except the fraus whispering to each other, while they looked horrified. They all suspected him of murder.

It's uphread somewhere but Bryan had "liked" every Instagram post that Maddie made. And he'd driven on that street, which was sort of out-of-the-way, about a dozen times, obviously casing the joint, as far back as August, which is right after he started at WSU. He may have seen her at the Mad Greek where she worked and he had eaten. I'm pretty sure it was also reported he kept trying to say hello on DMs.
So obsession, stalking, being ignored or rejected online - motive enough. You don't need a motive anyway. Serial killers, mass killers, spree killers, often don't have motives, other than the act of killing for its own pleasure or high - or whatever they get out of it. Maybe not him - but some keep killing over and over, so they must get something out of it. Probably a feeling of power.

FYI - page 118 of Elliot Rodgers' "manifesto" - terrifying.
about how wicked and degenerate women really are. Most of the people on that website have extremely stupid opinions that I found very frustrating, but I found a few to be quite insightful. The website PUAHate is very depressing. It shows just how bleak and cruel the world is due of the evilness of women. I tried to show it to my parents, to give them some sort dose of reality as to why I am so miserable. They never understood why I am so miserable. They have always had the delusion that everything is going well for me, especially my father. When I sent the link of PUAHate.com to my parents, none of them even bothered to look at the posts on there.
After a Spring season spent in absolute despair while other young people lived healthy lives of sexual pleasure, summer arrived. Summer is even worse than Spring, especially in Santa Barbara. Flocks of hot, young girls go out in their shorts and bikini’s, further tantalizing my sex-starved body every time I look at them. Knowing that they gleefully show off their desirable forms, yet they would never give me a chance to be their boyfriend only increased my already boiling hatred towards all women. I could not leave my apartment without seeing at least a few of them. The only place I could go where I could be at peace was the Lake Park in Goleta. I spent a lot of time there, trying to establish a sense peace and serenity whenever my loneliness in Isla Vista became too unbearable. As I looked at all of the beautiful trees around me, and the towering mountains in the background, I wondered how a world so beautiful can be such a dark and cruel place. Indeed, a beautiful environment is the darkest hell if you have to experience it all alone, while other men get to enjoy the company of women.
I had nothing left to live for but revenge. Women must be punished for their crimes of rejecting such a magnificent gentleman as myself. All of those popular boys must be punished for enjoying heavenly lives and having sex with all the girls while I had to suffer in lonely virginity. It was already June, and I had been living in Santa Barbara for two years. Two whole years. I lived in a college town full of young, attractive students who partied and had sex all the time, and I didn’t get to experience any of it. No one invited me to any parties, and in all the times I went out by myself to Isla Vista, none of the beautiful blonde girls showed any interest in having sex with me. Not one girl. These are crimes than cannot go unpunished. The more I thought about all these injustices that were dealt to me, the more eager I became for revenge. It’s all I had left. I didn’t want to die, but I knew that I had to kill myself after I exacted my revenge to avoid getting captured and imprisoned.
For a while, I had been deciding on whether I would exact my Retribution in Isla Vista or at Santa Barbara City College. In both places, I had suffered greatly at the hands of everyone there. I have seen attractive young couples walking around in both places, and those were my targets. I wanted to kill as many attractive young couples as I possibly could.
After a lot of thinking, I came to the conclusion that the Day of Retribution will take place in Isla Vista. On weekend nights, the streets of Isla Vista are always flooded with young couples and good-looking popular kids walking to their parties. What better place is there to exact my Retribution on my enemies? Every time I walked around Isla Vista, trying to meet girls or fit in with popular kids, I’ve only been treated with disdain, as if I’m an inferior mouse. On the Day of Retribution, the tables will indeed turn, I mused to myself. I will be a god, and they will all be animals that I can slaughter.

It came to a point where I had to set a date for the Day of Retribution. I originally considered doing it on the Halloween of 2013. That is when the entire town erupts in raucous partying. There would literally be thousands of people crowded together who I could kill with ease, and the goal was to kill everyone in Isla Vista, to utterly destroy that wretched town. But then, after seeing footage of previous Halloween events on Youtube, I saw that there were too many cops walking around. It would be too risky. One gunshot from a cop will end everything. The Day of Retribution would have to be on a normal party weekend, so I set it for some time during November of 2013.

I read Rodgers whole manifesto a few times - it's pretty wild. My favorite part is when he tells a story about how he got so mad seeing a cute girl and her boyfriend in a parking lot (or maybe sitting at a cafe or something) that he approached them and splashed them with orange juice or orange soda. He started getting really into doing shit like that to girls and sexually successful guys. He had ZERO insight into why people didn't like him - he just couldn't believe they didn't find him to be magnificent and want to follow him. There's not one moment where he asks himself if he's too rude or self-involved or too aggressive or if he is doing something wrong. It's narcissism in it's more pure and hardcore form - his entire sense of good and evil is just based on what validates or submits to him. He doesn't have any other framework for thinking about the world whatsoever.

BTK's daughter seems to be doing fine. Giving interviews as an expert on her father, on the phenom of mass killing, on being a surviving family member... I remember a Ted talk given by the mother of Dylan Klebold. Maybe there's backlash but I don't see much - unless they were involved, like Brian Laundrie's mother who offered to give him a shovel or some such. And even she doesn't seem to really be in any kind of danger - even legal.

Sentiment above is very typical right-wing Trumpy agitprop. This case likely involves the death penalty. There are serious legal requirements in place in most states for every case where the death penalty is, or may become, a consideration. (Hence Kohberger being appointed a second attorney - you have to have at least 2 in death penalty cases, in most states). The court inquired how much time the sides needed to prepare, and responses were given; the date was calendared accordingly. The impatience of the "take em out and shoot em rat now" gang is of no importance. Thank God.

Well she was raised by the same people who produced a Bryan Kohberger, and she had to live with Bryan for over a decade! Of course she's been through some horrific shit!
But if she's studied psychology and become a counselor, that makes it 99% sure that she's trying to both deal with her own trauma and help others, and live a sane, normal, and helpful life.

One of the surviving "basement girls" witnesses has successfully quashed a subpoena for her attendance at Bry's big preliminary hearing (commencing on June 28th). The linked article doesn't say if it's little Dylan or Bethany they're talking about, but I'm betting it's Dyl. She agreed, instead, to be "interviewed" in her home state (unidentified) by the defense, and so she isn't going to be compelled to show her ass at this important criminal proceeding. Somewhat strange, to put it mildly (speaking as an attorney). No other reasons are given.

The preliminary hearing has been cancelled. It seems BK has probably been indicted by a grand jury. We know the prelim next week has been cancelled because that's already showing up on the court schedule, and a reporter just a few minutes ago confirmed the rumor, which was started by News Nation.

If memory serves, he only has a public defender, so he’s likely totally fucked.
If I were working on this case, I would want to stall as long as possible to collect evidence and do all necessary tests, analyses, talk to experts, blahblahblah.

The defendant asks for a preliminary hearing, in order to find out what the evidence is that the prosecutor is holding against him. If he gets out on bond before such hearing takes place, he loses the right to that hearing. Kohberger's lawyers asked for one, as a real necessity in this case, and also knew that asking to get him out of jail on bond was not going to happen in this situation. In the meantime, he was indicted, which obviated the prelim hearing. It was a matter of logistics here: both sides needed a long time to prepare for a preliminary hearing, and so the DA (who certainly did not want to reveal his or her case like this in a "trial run") just blew the whole thing out of the water by getting Kohberger indicted by a grand jury before it would even happen.
Meantime, Bry is being accused of creeping on another woman shortly before these Idaho murders occurred:

R489, several people did preach that he had to have killed before to enter that house and be willing to take out four people.

Also, I say that based on his intelligence as well, plus the fact that he was complaining online about visual snow and feeling like he isn’t human but a creature wearing a skin suit ten years ago…..these all point to him opening his release valve earlier than this Idaho case.
Also, I cannot imagine the Grand Jury would put his parents up on the stand if prosecutors don’t believe they have valuable evidence. It does seem like the family has likely cooperated fully with the investigation, so I am hopeful the parents have useful evidence on the Pennsyltucky disappearance.

I think they can identify psychopaths using an MRI - messed up pre-frontal cortex or amygdala or some such - it fails to light up when they watch a child being tortured - while a normal person's brain would show activity in the centers of empathy. Oh I'm not explaining it well, but it's clearly a physical thing, at least in many cases. And there's often a history of brain injury - so it can be environmentally caused.

The families of Idaho student murders victims released a statement following alleged killer Bryan Kohberger’s indictment and arraignment Monday. Two of the families also filed a notice to reserve their right to sue the city of Moscow over the brutal murders.

On what basis would the families sue the city?

Goncalves and Mogen families filed the notice to sue. Lost wages of the kids ie future earnings. Something about failure to protect the victims. Sounds rather baseless.

[quote]There's a lot to be said for heredity when it comes to psychopathy. Expert Robert Hare estimated that 4% of the population is a psychopath. That's one in every classroom. We've all know them. I mean, just think how large the number of murderers is in this country. I shudder to think.
Most psychopaths aren't murderers though. Hare also said that you need to have negative childhood experiences to become a murderer. Hare claims to be a psychopath himself but says he isn't a killer because he had a good childhood.

Anyone have more information on the dead/missing PA woman?

R497 when you say the son had an alibi you mean Kohberger?

The father did fly from PA to WA to help BK drive his white Hyundai from WA back to PA. At the time, police suspected that a white Hyundai (IIRC) was involved.
The father flying to WA was fishy, IMO. I think the father knew that BK wanted to get his car far away from WA and Idaho. The Four Students Killed in Idaho story was national news and I think the father did know that the shit was about to hit the fan on his son.

Unless the father had been doing the drive every year for the winter break, yeah. It looks fishy.
It's possible the family knew what Bryan was capable of, or feared he was capable of murder. Seriously, I agree with the person who says this probably wasn't his first murder, the cops at his previous places of residence need to start looking at any cold case murders that happened near him, particularly any deaths of young women. Because a lot of murders go unsolved, if a spouse isn't standing over a warm corpse with a gun in their hand, and the local cops don't have CSI and FBI resources, a killer might get away with it.

It’s fascinating / horrifying that he was able to go relatively far in a criminology career. He’s clearly a nutter and comes across that way.

R512, I think this was his first academic year so there hadn't been a previous winter break. He went to school at some college near his home before that.
And there was his "visual film" or whatever going on - unless he'd gotten better. He claimed in a journal or online somewhere that he saw things that weren't there in his peripheral vision, so that might explain dad worrying about him driving 2000 miles or whatever it is.
But it's still pretty wild he'd start with four. But didn't he case the joint twelve times, each time late at night? Maybe he was hoping to catch his target alone and just gave up. I assume he found her the first time by following her home, maybe from that restaurant with the vegan food? -- and he was still only 28. With a quick google search I found this:
"Over the course of his work, which began in 1979, Vronsky has deduced that serial killers generally develop the personality and compulsion befitting a killer when they're young — by the time they're 14, they're basically fully formed; they generally start killing in their late twenties."

No way was he intending to kill 4. He probably thought he’d get Maddie upstairs in her bedroom and then sneak out. He didn’t know Kaylee was there. And then he unexpectedly encountered Xana in the hallway who had just finished eating. And he probably didn’t know Ethan was in her bedroom.

I’m not convinced that Dylan wasn’t an accomplice.

Are you kidding R516? Do you also think Dr. Bill Petit killed his wife and kids? You're literally adding insult to injury. It takes a fucking sociopath freak to murder four people and you think a 21 year old girl, friends with all the vicims, is complicit? My eyes can't roll hard enough.

"But it's still pretty wild he'd start with four."
It's possible, I suppose, he seems to have just been after Madison, and was shocked to find another girl in her bed, and the roommates awake when he tried to leave. He was the one who was armed, sober, and sociopathic, so it's possible that three of the murders were unplanned and he left the house shocked that he'd knifed four people instead of one. But that's not a given, you'd think that someone with no experience with killing would panic at some point and make a bigger mistake than leaving his knife sheath behind.

Good points. But he did drop the knife sheath which is pretty rookie error, especially when it was found next to a female victim upstairs. It might be more understandable if he'd lost it fighting with Ethan. If I remember the timeline, he went to the top floor first, tried one door which was locked, then the other which had the two girls.
I'm surprised he didn't get a gun with a silencer but I guess it has to do with his rage and wanting the visceral sensation of stabbing someone to death. Didn't he ask his "survey" criminals how they "felt" during their crime?
