According to the affidavit, Kohberger’s cellphone did not disclose its position to its service provider for around two hours on the night of the murders.
According to the affidavit, Kohberger offered the cellphone number to a sheriff’s deputy during a traffic check in Moscow in August. Police discovered on December 23 that Kohberger was registered as the number’s subscriber.
According to the affidavit, between 2:47 a.m. and 4:48 a.m. on November 13, the phone did not disclose its position to AT&T. The police believe the murders occurred between 4:00 and 4:25 a.m.
According to the affidavit, the phone contacted cellular networks at around 2:47 a.m. while passing through Pullman, Washington, where Kohberger resided. At around 4:48 a.m., the phone reported to the network that it was south of Moscow, near Blaine, Idaho.
According to the affidavit, the phone followed a trajectory that terminated in Pullman for the next 35 minutes.
In the affidavit, Cpl. Brett Payne of the Moscow Police Department stated that the pattern was consistent with the perpetrator “attempting to conceal his location during the quadruple homicide.”
According to the affidavit, between 9:12 and 9:21 a.m. on November 13, the phone pinged cellular resources in the vicinity of the victims’ residence.
