Idaho Murder Updates: All of the Moscow Police’s updates have suddenly come to an abrupt end when a court issued a nondissemination order requiring everyone involved in the case to remain silent.
The murder investigations of Kaylee Goncalves, Madison Mogen, Ethan Chapin, and Xana Kernodle have been regularly updated over the course of many weeks via social media, interviews, and news briefings.
The court order, which was granted by Latah County Magistrate Judge Megan Marshall, prevents law enforcement from disclosing any more information.
Law enforcement expert and former FBI special agent Jennifer Coffindaffer.
“At this point, we’ve entirely changed course since Mr. Kohberger’s arrest. We’ve entered the prosecution phases since his arrest, Coffindaffer stated.
Bryan Kohberger, the suspect, is awaiting extradition back to Idaho so that he may review a sealed probable cause document explaining the circumstances of his detention.
The gag order, according to Coffindaffer, has advantages for both the prosecution and the defence.
From the perspective of law enforcement, she claimed, “they had a cloak of the court surrounding them, telling them don’t worry, you don’t have to put your case in peril longer, there’s no issue.”
It implies that further developments in the case will only be disclosed in court filings.
Because of everything, the court has decided to close the case in the interest of justice for the defendant and the case at large, according to Coffindaffer.
