One of the Idaho murder victim’s surviving roommates stated that she heard a cry the night of the murders, and quickly opened the door to see what the commotion was about. That’s when she saw a man wearing a black mask, according to an unsealed filing that was just released. The roommate, who is identified only as D.M. in the document, said she awoke at 4 a.m. on November 13th. She initially thought the sound was Kaylee Goncalves playing with her dog Murphy on the third floor.

A short time later, she said she heard what she thought was Goncalves saying, “there’s someone here.” D.M. quickly looked out of her second-floor bedroom window but didn’t see anyone. The roommate opened the door when she heard crying coming from Xana Kernodle’s room on the second floor and a male’s voice saying, “It’s OK, I’m going to help you.” 

 The document also says a security camera that was located on a nearby property just 50ft from Kernodle’s bedroom captured “distorted audio of what sounded like voices or a whimper followed by a loud thud”  at 4:17 am. The dog also began to bark numerous times.

That’s when one of the roommates opened her door again and saw a “figure clad in black clothing and a mask that covered the person’s mouth and nose walking towards her,” according to Moscow police officer Brett Payne. “The male walked past D.M. as she stood in a ‘frozen shock phase.’” The man went on to walk by her and exit out of the second-floor sliding glass door.

Scared, the roommate went ahead and locked herself in her room. Eight hours later, a call was then placed by police from one of the surviving roommates to cell phones reporting an unconscious person.

Investigators believe the man is Bryan Kohberger, who is charged with fatally stabbing Goncalves, Kernodle, Madison Mogen and Ethan Chapin.  The shocking revelations were revealed in a probable cause affidavit which was unsealed Thursday just before Kohberger made his initial appearances in Lath County Court.
