Idaho murders suspect Bryan Kohberger was pulled over twice as he made a 2,500-mile cross-country car journey from Washington state to Pennsylvania, it has been revealed. The 28-year-old, who stands accused of killing Kaylee Goncalves, Maddie Mogen, Xana Kernodle and Ethan Chapin, drove from his student accommodation in Pullman, Washington, to his home state for Christmas.
Kohberger’s extradition lawyer, Jason LaBar, spoke to NBC about the traffic stops.
LaBar isn’t sure if a ticket was issued … but adds: “I just know they were pulled over in Indiana almost back to back. I believe once for speeding and once for following too closely to a car in front of them.”
The attorney previously said Kohberger’s father had gone out to meet him in Washington and they had headed home together.
Express.co.uk reached out to Indiana State Police for further comment.
An Indiana State Police spokesman said: “There are a number of law enforcement agencies operating in the State of Indiana and we do not have access to local records.”
LaBar did not immediately clarify which jurisdictions the stops happened in.
An Indiana State Police spokesman told Fox News Digital on Monday that he could not find evidence of any such encounters.
“We have examined records and do not find any record of any traffic stops or any interactions involving Bryan Kohberger, his father or any Kohberger,” Sgt. Glen Fifield said.
