Brian Christopher Koberger, a 28-year-old doctoral student in criminal law and criminology, is the suspect in the massacre in Idaho that stirred up the entire United States - in which a male and three female students were stabbed to death in their beds in an apartment near the university campus.

New details about the suspect paint a picture of a "strange" person, as his acquaintance testified , who was very interested in crime. According to reports in American media, Coberger recently lived in an apartment in the city of Pullman, Washington, and it seems "because he expresses a great interest in crime".

Ben Roberts, a criminal justice student at the University of Washington where Koberger did his doctorate and served as a teaching assistant, told Sky News that Koberger appeared to be a confident man, but also seemed like "he was always looking for a way to fit in."

According to him, he was a person with "very embarrassing" behavior.

"My name is Brian, and I invite you to participate in a study that seeks to understand how emotions and psychological traits affect decision-making when committing a crime," wrote Koberger in a post he published on Reddit about six months ago in an attempt to obtain information for a study he conducted about ex-prisoners.

"Emphasis, the research tries to understand the story behind your last criminal offense, emphasizing thoughts and feelings throughout the experience (at the time of the offense)," he added.
