MOSCOW, IDAHO: On January 5, Bryan Kohberger, the suspect accused of four counts of first-degree murder and felony burglary, made his initial court appearance. On November 13, Kohberger was apprehended for the fatal shootings of four University of Idaho students: Kaylee Goncalves, Madison Mogen, Xana Kernodle, and Ethan Chapin. The circumstances surrounding the students’ deaths have generated a lot of online rumor since the brutal killings.
A Twitter user recently made assumptions about the caller who dialed 911 on November 13 to report an unconscious person. The user questioned if Bethany Funke, who saw “Dylan passed out,” was the one who dialed 911. According to the police affidavits, Dylan Mortensen saw a man “with bushy eyebrows” inside their house who was likely the suspect, Bryan Kohberger.
In a 1989 column titled “Is taking human life OK?” Bryan Kohberger’s mother argued against the death penalty for Ted Bundy.

The user continued, “Let’s not forget the only person at fault here is Bryan. Was it Bethany who called police at noon because she was the one who discovered Dylan passed out from all the shock, and Bethany didn’t know what happened until later?” Idaho Four, Moscow Whodunit, Idaho Students
Was it Bеthany who dialеd 911 at noon sincе shе discovеrеd Dylan unconscious from thе shock and didn’t rеalizе what had happеnеd until latеr?
Lеt’s not forgеt that Bryan is thе only onе rеsponsiblе for this. #IdahoFour #Moscow #moscowhomicidе #IdahoStudеnts
