Idaho Murders suspect Bryan Kohberger may have followed three of the victims on Instagram before the quadruple stabbing in November, according to a new report.

A now-deleted account that allegedly belonged to Kohberger reportedly followed the female victims Kaylee Goncalves, Madison Mogen and Xana Kernodle, People reported.

None of the victims followed the suspect back, the outlet said. Kernodle's boyfriend and one of the victims Ethan Chapin, meanwhile, had a private Instagram account.

Kohberger is currently facing four charges of first-degree murder and one charge of felony burglary in relation to the gruesome stabbing of the four University of Idaho students.

After the 28-year-old's arrest in his parent's home in Albrightsville, Pennsylvania, numerous Instagram accounts using Kohberger's name reportedly appeared on the platform. The accounts are likely just poser or fake accounts since Kohberger has been held without bail since his arrest on Dec. 30.

According to a report by Fox News, at least one account with Kohberger's name that followed Goncalves, Mogen and Kernodle appeared to be inactive. Three others were reportedly still online when checked Thursday afternoon.

Instagram usually takes down accounts linked to murder suspects.

Earlier, People reported that Kohberger messaged at least one victim numerous times on Instagram but never received a response.

"He slid into one of the girls' DMs several times, but she didn't respond," an investigator familiar with the case reportedly told the outlet. "Basically, it was just him saying, 'Hey, how are you?' But he did it again and again."

Authorities believed that Kohberger sent a greeting to one of the female victims, according to People's source. He reportedly proceeded to send more messages when he did not receive a response

"She may not have seen them, because they went into message requests," the source told People. "We're still trying to determine how aware the victims were of his existence."

Kohberger is currently being held without bail at the Latah County jail in Moscow, Idaho. His next court appearance will be on June 26 after his attorney asked the court to delay the hearing to further review discovery.
