The Truth About the Treatment of the Suspected Idaho Killer in Jail
The 28-year-old man suspected of brutally murdering four University of Idaho students is not receiving any special treatment while being held in jail, contrary to popular belief.
The suspect, whose name we will not mention in order to deny him the notoriety he craves, is currently awaiting trial on murder charges. He allegedly took the lives of Ethan Chapin, Kaylee Goncalves, Xana Kernodle, and Madison Mogen on November 13, 2022.
Contrary to rumors, the suspect is not receiving any preferential treatment. As NewsNation’s Brian Entin pointed out on the show “Banfield,” the suspect has limited access to a computer, but no internet access. This allows him to review case-related documents, a privilege granted to other inmates as well.
Previous reports suggested that the jail was accommodating the suspect’s vegan diet, and it seems that this is still the case. According to Entin, the suspect is only being served rice and beans.
For the safety of both the suspect and other prisoners, he is being kept isolated from the general population, as reported by NewsNation.
Delayed Trial and Incriminating Evidence
The accused does not have a set trial date yet, as the original October start date has been postponed.
Court documents reveal that DNA found on a knife sheath left at the crime scene matches the suspect’s DNA, providing strong evidence against him.
An Alibi and Surveillance Footage
In an attempt to establish an alibi, the suspect’s attorneys claimed that he was out driving alone on the night of the murders. However, they were unable to provide a specific location or witness to support this alibi.
Surveillance footage played a crucial role in the suspect’s arrest. The footage captured a white Hyundai Elantra without a front license plate, which was seen multiple times near the off-campus residence where the murders occurred. The vehicle was later observed heading towards Pullman, Washington, where the suspect attended Washington State University.
Additional footage from the WSU campus showed the same vehicle leaving the area and heading towards Moscow, Idaho, further linking it to the suspect.
Vehicle Registration and DNA Claims
Police discovered that the suspect owned a white Hyundai Elantra registered at WSU, matching the vehicle seen in the surveillance footage. They also found that the suspect had registered his car in Washington and received Washington plates just five days after the murders.
In an attempt to cast doubt on the evidence, the suspect’s defense attorneys suggested that the DNA found at the crime scene may have been planted by the police. They questioned the integrity of the investigation, considering the involvement of numerous law enforcement members and an unnamed lab.
Despite these claims, the evidence against the suspect continues to mount, painting a compelling picture of his guilt.
