Between 4 a.m. and 4:25 a.m. on Nov. 13, roommates Hana Kernodle, Kaylee Goncalves and Madison Mogen, as well as Kernodle’s boyfriend, Ethan Chapen, were stabbed to death at the girls’ home. Two other roommates survived.

One of the survivors told police that night “he heard someone he thought was Goncalves saying, ‘There’s someone here,'” court documents state. But it could have been Kernodle on his phone, as records showed he was on TikTok around 4:12 a.m., the document said.

According to the documents, the woman at the home said she “looked from her room but saw nothing when she heard comments that someone was home.” “He opened the door a second time when he heard Kernodle crying from his room.”

The roommate “then said she heard a male voice saying, ‘It’s okay, I’ll help you,'” the document states.

According to the housemate, she opened the door again when she heard crying, and then she saw a man dressed in black and wearing a mask walking through the house. After her roommate saw her, she locked herself in her room, according to the documents.

Kohberger pleaded not guilty. His next status hearing is scheduled for January 12.
