A federal judge in Washington has released search warrants used to seize evidence from the home and office of Bryan Kohberger, the 28-year-old accused of killing four University of Idaho students in November, according to documents made public by Law & Crime on Wednesday.
“These official documents and requests were published, due to the difficulties that the investigation had at the time. Since then, the confirmation of the expected amount has been issued in Latah County, Idaho, which has reduced the need to print the Return of Service here in Washington,” the court documents say.

Kohberger faces four counts of first-degree murder in the deaths of Kaylee Goncalves, 21; Madison Mogen, 21; Xana Kernodle, 20; and Ethan Chapin, 20.
The suspect was a student at the Washington State University Department of Criminal Justice and Criminology and was living in Pullman, Washington, at the time of his arrest last month.
The things they found in her house were “very dark red,” pieces of a pillow with a purple stain, and part of a mattress with stains.
Other items listed include black nitrate gloves, store receipts with a Dickies tag, several hair ties, a vacuum cleaner, a Fire TV stick and a computer tower, among others.
There was no mention of what may have been taken from the suspect’s office. It is not yet known if anything else was returned, or if the information about the implementation of the document is still in print.
The victims were found murdered in a house outside the school on November 13, with what investigators believe to be a knife.
Investigators linked Kohberger to the case after DNA on the sheath of a leather knife found near one of the victims was matched to DNA in trash found at Kohberger’s home, according to the affidavit that led to his arrest.
Law enforcement officials also recovered ownership of a white Hyundai Elantra that was seen in the area of Kohberger’s murder, according to two law enforcement sources briefed on the investigation.
A judge last week scheduled a trial for June 26 after Kohberger waived his right to a speedy hearing. He has been held without bail in the Latah County Jail in Idaho since his release from Pennsylvania, where he was held nearly seven weeks after the murder.
Kohberger never made a plea.
