The FBI discovered four medical-style gloves and a silver flashlight while searching the Pennsylvania residence of the man charged with killing four University of Idaho students.

During the search of Bryan Kohberger’s parents’ residence in Albrightsville on December 30, a buccal swab DNA test was also discovered, according to a search warrant return.

According to court records, investigators were permitted to collect samples from Kohberger.

The return from the search warrant did not specify who the gloves pertain to.

According to the search warrant return, additional items seized included a white T-shirt, a Washington State Cougars sweatshirt, a pair of Nike shoes, a pair of hosiery, black shorts, and black boxers.

Kohberger, who was 28 years old at the time, was caught in Pennsylvania seven weeks after four students were stabbed to death in their beds in a house near the University of Idaho campus. This shocked the small town of Moscow, Idaho, left police puzzled, and led to a search for the killer all over the country.

Kohberger refused to be sent to Idaho, so he is being held in jail there without bail. He has been charged with four counts of first-degree murder and burglary, and if he is found guilty, he could get the death penalty.

Killed on Nov. 13 were Ethan Chapin, 20, of Conway, Washington; Madison Mogen, 21, of Coeur d’Alene, Idaho; Xana Kernodle, 20, of Avondale, Arizona; and Kaylee Goncalves, 21, of Rathdrum, Idaho.

Kohberger lived in a Pullman, Washington, apartment and seemed to be very interested in crime. He had been a Ph.D. student in criminal justice and criminology at Washington State University, which is 10 miles away from the University of Idaho.

A probable cause affidavit from Moscow police said that video surveillance in the area helped investigators link the four murders to Kohberger’s white Hyundai Elantra.

In the affidavit, it was also said that Kohberger was linked to the killings by male DNA found on a knife sheath. But the affidavit didn’t say what made the attack happen.
