An inmate housed in Pennsylvania’s Monroe County Correctional Facility, threatened the man accused of killing four college students in Idaho, according to a NewsNation source.
The NewsNation report described the holding area for Bryan Kohberger, 28, while detained prior to an extradition hearing. Kohberger was housed in a cell behind a glass door with a blurred strip running along the middle of it.
Another inmate reportedly gestured at Kohberger with his middle finger, saying “F— you, I’m going to kill you,” according to the report. It is unclear if the inmate who gave the finger to Kohberger was the source referenced by NewsNation.
The murder suspect appeared “creepy,” the source reportedly said adding, Kohberger did not appear remorseful or distressed during his five-day stay in the jail. He did talk to other people in the facility, the report added.
Kohberger was reportedly asked why he killed the four students.
“I didn’t do anything,” the graduate criminology student responded. The report noted the murder suspect was asked why he traveled to Moscow, Idaho, since he was studying at a college in Pullman, Washington.
He reportedly replied: “The shopping is better in Idaho.”
While imprisoned in Pennsylvania, Kohberger was dressed in a “suicide smock,” used to prevent prisoners from committing suicide in prison. His handcuffs were reportedly removed to allow him to shower every day he was in the prison, but his leg shackles were not unfastened. After his shower was completed, he was handcuffed again.
The report noted Kohberger’s request for vegan meals was granted during his Pa. stay. His meals included peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, apple sauce, vegetables, beans, rice, cereal and perhaps potatoes, according to the NewsNation report.
Kohberger was extradited to Idaho Wednesday and booked into the Latah County Jail, according to an NBC News report. He faces four homicide charges for the November 13 deaths of Kaylee Goncalves, 21; Madison Mogen, 21; Xana Kernodle, 20; and Ethan Chapin, 20.
The suspect was also charged with one count of burglary in relation to the stabbing deaths of the University of Idaho students in their King Road residence.
Kohberger appeared in an Idaho court Thursday, according to a New York Post report. That appearance allowed Idaho law enforcement to unseal the probable cause affidavit that supported their request for an arrest warrant.
