Out With the Old

The news was good. The person allegedly responsible for the quadruple homicide of the University of Idaho college students was found in Pennsylvania at his parents’ house. This person was a post graduate student working on his doctorate in Criminal Justice at Washington State University.

At his point everything is based on whatever evidence was recovered that day the four young adults were found, is sealed until he is extradited back to Idaho.

It is hoped that if this is the person responsible, he will be found guilty of murder and justice will prevail. There was a news conference held Friday informing us the public at large that a man by the name of Bryan Christopher Kohberger was arrested for the homicides of November 13th.

Which brings me to the other news I wish to share with my loyal readers. As the old cliché often and truthfully conveys, “truth often is stranger than fiction.” The story also affected me in most extraordinary ways. Moscow, Idaho is only eight miles away from Pullman where I went to college back in the eighties. I went ahead, shelved the Mobley story and began a new story based in part with those murders.

Rather than Moscow, the murderer in this story resides in Bozeman, Montana, home of the Montana State Bobcats and Chrystal Gilderbund’s alma mater. Unlike my killer though, Kohberger allegedly has no motive for killing those students. One has to wonder what is in that sealed affidavit, awaiting the arrested man’s appearance when he is extradited back to Moscow.
