Shocking new details on the final moments of Idaho murder victim Xana Kernodle as she tried to stop Bryan Kohberger
Startling new details have been revealed about a University of Idaho student before she was brutally killed.
The deaths of the four victims of the Idaho murders are still under investigation by police after alleged killer Bryan Kohberger was arrested in December.
Sources close to the investigation reportedly revealed victim Xana Kernodle’s horrifying final moments.
Kernodle was reportedly the last of the four students to be killed in the bloody rampage, and she fought to the end.
The unnamed source told News Nation: “Xana Kernodle was engaged in a fierce struggle when the attacker lunged at her and repeatedly grabbed the attacker’s knife.
“So much so that she severely cut her fingers and almost had her fingers severed.”
Best friends Kaylee Goncalves and Madison Mogen were killed first by the attacker before the noise alerted others to the intruder, reports said.
Ethan Chapin, Kernodle’s friend, was knocked out in her doorway after going out to see what the noise was.
Kernodle’s father Jeffrey said in November his late daughter was a “tough kid”.
He said: “Bruises, torn by the knife. She’s a tough kid. Whatever she wanted to do, she could do it.”
The suspected killer Kohberger, 28, was arrested after a police search of his parents’ home in Scranton, Pennsylvania, which lasted more than a month.
On the night of the murders, Kaylee and Maddie, both 21, were spending their evening about a mile and a half away at the Corner Club, a student hangout in the center of town.
They returned home around 1:45 a.m. and shared a bed on the third floor while Kaylee called an ex-boyfriend.
Roommate Xana and her boyfriend Ethan, both 20 years old, had been to a party at a fraternity house.
They, too, returned in the early hours of the morning and went to bed in Xana’s room on the second floor.
Moscow, a college community of 25,000 near Idaho’s Washington state border, remained eerily quiet.
A rural and friendly town that hadn’t had a murder in seven years.
Sources with knowledge of the matter told PEOPLE that Kohberger messaged one of the female victims multiple times on Instagram but never received a response.
According to the source, Kohberger followed Madison, Kaylee and Xana on Instagram.
