Bryan Kohberger, 28, was arrested Friday morning in connection with the murders of four University of Idaho students, who were stabbed to death and discovered on Nov. 13.
Kohberger was located and arrested in Pennsylvania’s Pocono Mountains, according to the criminal complaint, via ABC News.
Law enforcement officials told ABC that they had identified Kohberger as their primary suspect and were able to track him to Pennsylvania. A SWAT team entered his location to take him into custody and arrest him on a warrant for first-degree murder issued by Moscow, Idaho authorities.
The arrest came six weeks after University of Idaho roommates Kaylee Goncalves, Madison Mogen and Xana Kernodle, along with Kernodle’s boyfriend, Ethan Chapin, were all stabbed to death in an off-campus house. Two other people were in the home, presumably sleeping, but were not harmed and were never suspects.

According to police, the two survivors were asleep on the ground floor of the home, while the victims were on the second and third floors.
“Starting Friday morning we’re going to be bringing in a professional cleaning crew to go to the residence,” Moscow Police Chief James Fry said in a video statement Thursday. “Part of the reason we’re doing that is because of the biohazards, as well as chemicals that were used during the investigation.”
However, after the arrest of Kohberger, it appears the planned cleaning of the home has been put on hold.
