According to a source close to the investigation, the student “put up a fierce fight when the attacker set upon her, repeatedly grabbing the attacker’s knife, so much so that she sustained deep cuts to her fingers and that her fingers were nearly severed.”

Sources stated that she was the last of the four students to be killed at the off-campus home in Moscow on November 13th. Childhood best friends, Madison Mogen and Kaylee Goncalves, who were sleeping on the same bed, were the ones to be killed first.

Xana Kernodle Fought Off Alleged Killer Bryan Kohberger

Chapin had appeared to partially step out into the hallway where the second-floor attack began. Sources said that Chapin suffered a slash to the neck and was killed in the doorway of Kernodle’s room.  That’s when the suspect allegedly set his sight on Kernodle who fought until her death. Jeffrey Kernodle, father of Xana, went on to confirm the statement, saying “Bruises, torn by the knife. She’s a tough kid. Whatever she wanted to do, she could do it.”

Two other roommates were in the house at the time of the attack but were not targeted. One of the women, Dylan Mortensen, told investigators that she came face to face with a man who had “bushy eyebrows,”  which was an attribute that helped investigators nail him down before he walked out the door. The investigative sources went on to release the explosive details despite there being a court-mandated gag order that prevents anyone involved with the case from speaking to the public or the media.

A judge had issued the order back in January in order to protect Kohberger’s rights to a fair trial. But, Goncalves’ family filed an appeal on Friday on the order are you in that it is “facially overbroad and vague.”

The family went on to argue that they shouldn’t be restricted by the order since they are not parties in the case against Kohberger, according to the filing that was obtained by Fox News.

Just this week, three University of Idaho students said that they frequently saw the suspect walking around Moscow campus. They stated that he was a creepy loner who had a habit of staring at people. “He wouldn’t look away if you caught him staring. Like he wanted you to notice that he was looking at you,” one student stated.

“He didn’t smile, didn’t nod, didn’t say anything. Just stared.”
