MOSCOW, Idaho (NewsNation) — A source with knowledge of Bryan Kohberger’s stay in Latah County jail said he’s being held in maximum security and doesn’t socialize with other inmates.

Jail officials accommodate Kohberger’s vegan diet, according to our source. He’s usually served vegetables or rice and beans.

Portions are reportedly small, and Kohberger eats every meal alone in his jail cell.

There are apparently four cells for the “maximum-security” inmates, and three of those cells are empty.

Kohberger is facing charges for the stabbing deaths of University of Idaho students Kaylee Goncalves, Madison Mogen, Xana Kernodle and Ethan Chapin in November 2022. Kohberger, 28, was a criminal justice graduate student at nearby Washington State University.

NewsNation’s source said that Kohberger is searched whenever he leaves or enters his cell. He’s apparently cooperative and doesn’t cause any trouble.

He has one hour of isolated recreation time, and he has to choose between the library or outdoor time.

Kohberger is permitted to use headphones when he makes calls for privacy, according to our source.

Fellow inmates are very curious about Kohberger, but they’re reportedly relieved that he keeps his head down.

One source said Kohberger is very polite and “he does not seem like a psychopath.”
