Indiana cops ‘deliberately pulled over Idaho murder suspect Bryan Kohberger at FBI request’
An FBI surveillance team that brought suspected quadruple killer Bryan Kohberger back to his parents’ home in Pennsylvania asked Indiana police to stop him, sources said.
The team attempted to get video images of Kohberger and his hands, with the alleged killer and his father being stopped twice in Indiana on December 15 on their 2,500-day overland trip.
It comes as a new mugshot of Kohberger was released after he arrived in Idaho and was transferred to the Latah County Jail.
The killer spent several hours on a flight escorted by law enforcement agencies and landed at Moscow’s Pullman Regional Airport on Wednesday evening.

A law enforcement source told Fox News that the FBI team wanted pictures of Kohberger’s hands to see if he had any injuries.
From the footage, it doesn’t look like the quadruple killer has any leads, though web investigators are zooming in to try to find any evidence of an injury.
Investigators were reportedly still working on their case when Kohberger was arrested, 15 days before his final arrest.
Authorities tried to link him to the case after finding his FBI in the “murder house,” with genetic genealogy playing a major role in catching the alleged killer.

Both time officials only let him go with a warning, with Kohberger looking visibly more concerned during the Indiana State Police second stop on Dec. 15. He appeared to have no injuries to his arms or hands
He was escorted on the long flight west by four armed officers from the Pennsylvania State Police and met by officers from the Moscow Police Department and the Idaho State Police.
Authorities have released footage of the first time suspected quadruple killer Bryan Kohberger was pulled over – for driving too close to the van in front of him.
The Hancock County Sheriff’s Department confirmed that Kohberger was pulled over by a deputy at approximately 10:41 a.m. on December 15.
Police bodycam footage captured the moment an officer approached the 28-year-old in his limousine on December 15 on I-70 just outside Indianapolis.
He and his father, Michael, told the officer there was a “mass shooting” at his university, before his father added that a “SWAT team” had come to campus.
Michael then described the shooting as “horrific” just days before his son was apprehended by another SWAT team who swooped down on their home.
Kohberger appeared in court on Tuesday and waived extradition during a brief court hearing
The crime happened six weeks ago, 2,500 miles from where Kohberger was arrested. His father flew to meet his son in Washington and drove him back to their home in Pennsylvania
The criminal justice graduate sat next to his father Michael in the driver’s seat during the stop and then handed over his driver’s license.
Michael was quick to tell officers where they had traveled from, explaining that they left Washington State University to return to Pennsylvania.
Kohberger himself speaks calmly to officers, explaining that they drove “for hours” after a SWAT team descended on WSU.
He then appears to be trying to lie to the officers by claiming they are eating “Thai food” before his father steps in to say they are on their way home to Pennsylvania.
The incident, which has been linked to a campus shooting, was oddly addressed by Kohberger after the officer asked where they were from.
Kohberger was pulled over twice in nine minutes on I-70 in December.

He was verbally reprimanded both times, with Kohberger and his father both appearing more concerned the second time they were pulled over.
The Idaho Police Department first requested information about a white Hyundai Elantra on Dec. 7 — a week before the Indiana traffic stop.
Kohberger was eventually arrested on December 30 at his parents’ home in Pennsylvania for the November 13 massacre of four University of Idaho students.
The footage was released hours after Kohberger began his extradition proceedings to Idaho after leaving Pennsylvania around 6 a.m. yesterday.
Kohberger left the Monroe County Correctional Facility after waiving his right to extradition in a hearing Tuesday.
He is expected to appear in court in Moscow sometime today when the affidavit on the probable cause of his arrest is unsealed.

The 28-year-old Washington State University criminology student was arrested at his family’s home in Chestnuthill Township in Monroe County, Pennsylvania
The killer was arrested Friday in connection with the murders of Kaylee Goncalves, 21, Xana Kernodle, 20, Madison Mogen, 21, and Ethan Chapin, 20.
Kohberger was charged with four counts of first-degree murder and one count of burglary.
Monroe County’s first assistant district attorney, Michael Mancuso, confirmed yesterday that they believe Kohberger is desperate enough to return to Idaho to find out the contents of the affidavit.
An Idaho judge has issued a gag order on Moscow police and legal teams over the case, barring anyone connected to the case from speaking out.
Latah County Prosecutor Bill Thompson said: “Once he gets here he will have a first appearance with our judge.
“They will deal with issues such as ensuring that competent counsel is representing him and the case will be scheduled for hearings.”
Kootenai County’s lead defense attorney, Ann Taylor, will represent Kohberger Idaho, however a five-person team of investigators hired by his defense team was dispatched to the home where the quadruple homicide took place.
It is unusual for state-paid criminal defense attorneys to create a crime scene reconstruction.
