Police Found Kohberger’s DNA Left On Button Snap Of Knife Sheath

  • Male DNA left on a button snap of a knife sheath was used to link a doctoral student in Washington state with the slayings of four University of Idaho students in November — and a surviving roommate came basically face-to-face with him the night of the killings, according to court documents unsealed Thursday.
  • A probable cause affidavit by Moscow, Idaho, police Officer Brett Payne lays out how investigators used video surveillance in the area to connect the quadruple homicide with a white Hyundai Elantra driven by Bryan Kohberger, 28.
  • After arriving at the off-campus apartment house on Nov. 13, Payne wrote that he noticed a tan leather knife sheath laying on the bed next to one of the victims, Madison Mogen.
  • “The sheath was later processed and had ‘Ka-Bar’ ‘USMC’ and the United States Marine Corps eagle globe and anchor insignia stamped on the outside of it,” Payne wrote. “The Idaho state lab later located a single source of male DNA (suspect Profile) left on the button snap of the knife sheath.”
