The parallels between Two Days Back and the alleged crime of Kohberger
According to Letterboxd media, Two Days Back follows a group of “environmentally conscious students” who travel to a mountainous area to investigate illegal logging. However, over the course of their journey, members of their group begin to disappear as an assassin picks them off one by one. In the film, Amanda Kohberger plays Lori, one of the many young women targeted by the killer.
As netizens dig into the suspect’s life, the film has resurfaced due to alleged similarities to the crime, though the only true similarities are that both the film and the Moscow, Idaho case involved college students being stabbed.
Fox reported that in the Nov. 13 case, the suspect was accused of breaking into the home of University of Idaho students before stabbing the four victims to death in the early hours of the morning. Two roommates, who were also in the house at the time, were not injured in the attack.
The New York Post reported that during the course of the investigation, activity on the suspect’s cell phone indicated that he had been in the area of the victims’ homes at least 12 times prior to the murder. Authorities claimed that he stalked them for days and scouted the surroundings to plan the stabbings.
In an interview with New York Post reporters, Kevin Boon expressed surprise at the connection between the actual murders and his 2011 film.
“Are you (…) kidding. Is his brother his that guy? Damn, man, holy cow.”
Speaking about Kohberger’s sister, Boon said:
“I remember her well. I directed the movie, I wrote the movie, I hired her. She is a lovely woman, which was very nice. I liked her a lot.” In an interview with NBC reporters, Monroe County Chief Public Defender Jason LaBar said the suspect’s family does not believe he is guilty.
“They don’t believe it’s Bryan. They can’t believe this. They’re obviously shocked. This is certainly completely out of line, the allegations, and they’re really just trying to be supportive with the understanding that these four families have suffered loss.”
If he is found guilty of the murders, the suspect could receive the death penalty.
