Disney’s ABC News Studios has announced a brand new documentary special, “Horror in Idaho; The Student Murders”, which is about what happened when terror gripped the rural town of Moscow, Idaho, when authorities found four University of Idaho students ― Ethan Chapin (20), Madison Mogen (21), Xana Kernodle (20) and Kaylee Goncalves (21) ― stabbed to death in an off-campus house in November. The case quickly made national headlines as police worked to identify a suspect and piece together answers to the puzzling crime. Just weeks ago, a shocking break in the case occurred when authorities arrested Bryan Kohberger, a 28-year-old Ph.D. student at Washington State University, as the primary suspect and charged him with four counts of first-degree murder and felony burglary. Although Kohberger has yet to enter a formal plea, his public defender noted that he is “eager to be exonerated.”
A new two-hour “20/20,” with reporting by ABC News correspondent Kayna Whitworth, provides a comprehensive look at the case and covers the latest details, including a deep dive into the recently unsealed affidavit. The episode also includes exclusive sit-down interviews with parents and loved ones of the victims and interviews with those who knew Kohberger.
“Horror in Idaho; The Student Murders” will be released on Friday, 13th January 2023 (9:01-11:00 p.m. EST), on ABC, and it will be available the next day on Hulu. Many of the 20/20 documentaries are also released internationally on Disney+ as Star Originals, but no release details have yet been confirmed.
