Pennsylvania unsealed search warrants that revealed a number of items seized by law enforcement from Bryan Kohberger’s parents’ home during a December 30 raid.
Authorities seized black gloves, a Glock, a knife (possibly the murder weapon?), black face masks, ‘green leafy substance’ in a plastic bag and other items (photo of list below).
Another peculiar item seized was a “book with underlining on page 118.”

Police also seized parts of Bryan Kohberger’s white Hyundai Elantra.
Tire irons, a shovel, floor mats, a door panel, seats and seat cushions, headrests, seatbelt, brake pedal, gas pedal, a band-aid and other items were seized from the vehicle.
The FBI seized a number of items from Kohberger’s parents’ home, including four medical style gloves, a pair of black Under Armour socks and size 13 black and white Nike sneakers.
According to the court documents, Kohberger’s DNA was found on a tan leather knife sheath left behind on Maddie Mogen’s bed on the 3rd floor at the King Road Residence.
“The sheath was later processed and had ‘Ka-Bar’ ‘USMC’ and the United States Marine Corps eagle globe and anchor insignia stamped on the outside of it,” Idaho police officer Brett Payne wrote in the 19-page affidavit. “The Idaho state lab later located a single source of male DNA (suspect Profile) left on the button snap of the knife sheath.”
According to People, Kohberger had “more than one picture” of one of the female victims stored on his phone.
Kohberger also reportedly messaged one of the female victims on Instagram two weeks before the murders.
Kohberger could face a firing squad if convicted since a GOP state lawmaker introduced a new bill that would bring back the method of legal execution.
