Accused killer Bryan Kohberger had photos of Idaho victim on his phone: source

Accused Idaho killer Bryan Kohberger allegedly had multiple photos of one of the female victims on his phone — suggesting that he had been specifically “paying attention” to her, a source connected to the case said this week.

The images were found on Kohberger’s phone when it was seized by investigators after he was arrested in late December for the Nov. 13 stabbing deaths of Kaylee Goncalves, 21, Madison Mogen, 21, Xana Kernodle, 20, and Ethan Chapin, 20, the source told PEOPLE.

Though the source did not identify which of the female victims was in the pictures, they confirmed that Kohberger had “more than one” photo of her.

“It was clear that he was paying attention to her,” they said.

At the time of his arrest, Kohberger, 28, was a doctoral student in criminology at the University of Washington in Pullman, about 15 minutes from the off-campus home where the students were killed.
