National interest in the November killings of four Idaho college students has recently centered around the possibility that suspect Brian Kochberger did attend a vigil for the murdered students.
On November 13, the bodies of University of Idaho students Kayleigh Gonsalves, Madison Mogen, Xana Kernodle, and Ethan Chapin were found in a rented house where three young women lived in Moscow, Idaho.
Chapin, Cairnodle’s boyfriend, stayed overnight, according to Fox News report.
As noted New York Post, the university held a vigil on November 30 for students. Since Kochberger’s December 30 arrest, internet detectives have been poring over footage of the vigil, focusing on one man in a blue jacket who was seen walking through the crowd.

Once again, the gym lights bounce off the tops of everyone’s heads/hairs, creating a white blur. It seems like the man might be wearing glasses, which, if it’s Brian, he could wear to look a little different. The man has a very peculiar gait.

The guy in the blue coat at the memorial service for the murdered Idaho college students appears to have the same profile as Brian Kochberger, who is being escorted to court today. The same weak chin, the same long nose, the same sunken eyes and the same height of the hairline. It’s Brian on vigil! #BrianKoberger pic.twitter.com/xxIIZzGcLi

Not everyone agreed.
The guy in the blue coat on vigil is certainly not Brian Kochberger. The guy in the blue coat is very clubfoot, especially in the left leg. Almost like something is wrong.

In December, Steve Gonsalves said Fox News that he postponed the entire funeral for his daughter Kaylie due to fears that her killer might be present.
“It’s almost a fact. Who does something like that and doesn’t tune into the media? Who wouldn’t? It is in his 100 percent selfish interests,” he said.
“He could easily be there, and this is a sick perverted person who will do such nonsense,” he said.
Speaking before Koberger’s arrestMary Ellen O’Toole, a retired FBI profiler, said the “arrogant nature” and “high risk” of assassination made it possible.
“Sometimes offenders show up,” O’Toole said.
“They can take great pleasure in thinking they got away with crime and so go to a service like this where they can go and people don’t understand who they are, which can certainly fuel this kind of selfish behavior.” . answer,” she said.
In terms of public discussion video evidenceExperts noted that the arrest of Kochberger occurred after the police went on the trail technology-based breadcrumbs which they believe links him to the murder, prompting former Los Angeles County Attorney Joshua Ritter to reveal USA today: “I think it just ties into the idea that there are no perfect crimes these days.”

“For the most part, this is a rather circumstantial case. And creating this kind of case requires you to create this kind of tapestry of evidence, which they have done here in a very remarkable way,” Ritter said.
Mary Phan, a professor at the University of Washington School of Law, told the newspaper that the evidence gathered against Kochberger was “a perfect study of modern investigative techniques.”
Howard Ryan, a law enforcement consultant and former New Jersey State Police investigator, agreed.
“You see a combination of the latest, sophisticated technology combined with old-fashioned policing,” he told USA Today.
