“Killer” Idaho neighbors reveal his nocturnal behavior and claim he looks too weak to kill
Idaho killer suspect Bryan Kohberger “never slept” and appeared incapable of murder when his downstairs neighbor revealed his strange late-night behavior.
Kohberger, 28, was arrested Friday at his parents’ home in Pennsylvania for the quadruple murders of University of Idaho students Kailee Golcalves, 21, Maddie Mogen, 21, Xana Kernodle, 20, and Ethan Chapin, 20 .
His neighbor in Pullman, Washington, where Kohberger was a criminology student, recalled that the suspected killer was keeping a low profile and seemed too weak to kill.
“I don’t know how he could kill people because he doesn’t look that tough,” the neighbor, who asked to remain anonymous, told the New York Post.

Idaho Police said the four University of Idaho students were murdered in their sleep between 3 and 4 a.m. (Picture: victims Kaylee Goncalves, 21, Maddie Mogen, 21, Xana Kernodle, 20, and 20-year-old Ethan Chapin )
The neighbor, a woman, told the news outlet that since he moved into the complex in August, she has heard Kohberger getting up late at night.
“He’s usually a night person, going to the bathroom and vacuuming at 1 or 12 in the morning,” she said.
“I have kids, so sometimes I thought about talking to him or complaining, but I never did. It seemed like he never slept because he was always doing something all night.’
While Kohberger never spoke to his neighbors, he occasionally greeted others in passing.
She recalled bringing a woman home one night and hearing her talking through the walls of the complex.
The suspected killer also brought a woman home in his white car, but the two separated as soon as he parked, according to the neighbor.
His neighbor said she was in disbelief when she learned Kohberger was the alleged killer in the horrific November 13 killings.
“We’re all graduate students here, so it takes a lot of hard work and intelligence to get to this point,” she said. “You don’t think someone like that could do something like that.”

Students attending Washington State University with Kohberger were also shocked to learn that the quiet man in their classroom was the prime suspect in the brutal murder.
BK Norton, who was in the same criminal justice graduate program with Kohberger, said her classmate was more animated and talkative after the murders.
“He seemed more upbeat and ready to have a conversation,” she told the New York Times.
But Norton noted that when the class discussed the Idaho murder case, all his enthusiasm would evaporate and he would become “calm and deadpan.”
“I don’t think he responded,” Norton told the New York Post, saying it was odd because everyone else was sticking with the case and speculating about the lack of public information.
“We talked about it for a long time in class. I don’t think I remember him even commenting on that.’
Another student, who spoke to the Times on condition of anonymity, supported Norton’s claim, saying Kohberger doesn’t have many friends at school because of alleged LGBTQ+ comments he made.
Ben Roberts, a classmate of Kohberger and Norton, echoed the suspect’s usual quiet demeanor in class, but said his demeanor changed after the murders.
“He started to show up very tired,” Roberts told the Seattle Times. “He always had a cup of coffee in hand and looked like he was riding the knife edge between exhausted and completely exhausted.”
The suspect reportedly drove about 2,300 miles from Moscow to Pennsylvania. He attended college in nearby Washington State
Meanwhile, Kohberger’s family addressed the charges, offered condolences to the victim’s families and asked people to refrain from sentencing.
“We will let the legal process continue and as a family we will love and support our son and brother,” the family said on Sunday.
“First and foremost, we care deeply for the four families who have lost their precious children.
“There are no words that can adequately express the sadness we feel and we pray for it every day,” reads in part the statement obtained by TMZ.
“We have cooperated fully with law enforcement to seek the truth and further his presumption of innocence, rather than assessing unknown facts and making false assumptions,” the family continued.

Kohberger was taken into custody in Albrightsville, Pennsylvania, a small town in the heart of the Poconos Mountains more than 2,000 miles from where the gruesome killings took place
Kohberger’s family has requested privacy during this time as they are working with law enforcement to get to the bottom of the case.
“We respect privacy in this matter as our family and families suffering losses may go through the court process,” the family said.
Law enforcement officials believe Kohberger tracked the victims in the weeks leading up to the Nov. 13 killings.
Aside from stalking the young students and being careful not to leave any evidence at the scene, sources said the man wore gloves for weeks after the killings to avoid distributing DNA.
Kohberger faces four counts of first-degree murder.
