Idaho murders suspect Bryan Kohberger's new defense attorney identified

The suspect arrested in connection with the stabbing deaths of four University of Idaho college students once studied how emotions affect why people decide to commit crimes.

A since-deleted Reddit post by the user Criminology_Student from 212 days ago titled "Research Participation Needed" sought out people

who had recently committed a crime for a research project focusing on the criminals' "thoughts and feelings throughout your experience."

The post said the "student investigator" leading the study was Bryan Kohberger and included his DeSales University email address.

Police arrested Kohberger, 28, on Friday in Pennsylvania, and he is being held on a warrant for first-degree murder,

arrest documents filed in Monroe County say. Court documents obtained by Insider say he will be extradited to Idaho.

At the time of the post, Kohberger was a graduate student at DeSales University.
