The chancellor of Washington State University’s Pullman campus and WSU provost released this statement regarding the arrest of WSU graduate student Bryan Christopher Kohberger in connection with the November murders of 4 University of Idaho students.

Bryan Christopher Kohberger, a graduate student at Washington State University, was taken into custody in Pennsylvania by law enforcement officers in connection with a quadruple killing that occurred in Moscow, Idaho in November. The homicides took place in November.

“On behalf of the WSU Pullman community, I want to offer my sincere thanks to all of the law enforcement agencies that have been working tirelessly to solve this crime,” said Elizabeth Chilton, chancellor of the WSU Pullman campus and WSU provost. “This horrific act has shaken everyone in the Palouse region.”

“We also want to extend our deepest sympathies to the families, friends, and Vandal colleagues who were impacted by these murders,” Chilton said. “We will long feel the loss of these young people in the Moscow-Pullman community and hope the announcement today will be a step toward healing.”

This morning, officers from the Idaho Department of Law Enforcement requested assistance from the Washington State University Police Department in the execution of search warrants at Mr. Kohberger’s residence and office, both of which are located on the WSU Pullman campus. As the investigation moves forward, the WSU Police Department is maintaining close collaboration with authorities from other law enforcement agencies located locally, statewide, and federally.

A little earlier this month, Kohberger had finished his first semester as a PhD student in the criminal justice program at Washington State University.
