An ex-professor of Bryan Kohberger’s has called the accused murderer “one of my greatest students, ever,” adding that he was one of only two students she recommended to a Ph.D. program while they were both in her classes.
Kohberger, who was arrested in the deaths of four students at the University of Idaho, was praised as a “wonderful writer” and “bright student” by Michelle Bolger, 33, an associate professor at DeSales University in Pennsylvania, according to the Daily Mail.
He was one of just two students I’ve ever recommended to a Ph.D. program in my ten years of teaching. He consistently ranked as one of my top students. She told the newspaper, “Everyone is in shock over this,” and that he was “always totally professional” with her.
A former student of associate professor at a private Catholic university in Center Valley, Pennsylvania, has been accused of the heinous act, and she is shocked. I can’t believe he’s been charged with that! Bolger responded, “I don’t think it, but I get it.
The news is disturbing. As soon as I learned about Bryan, I couldn’t sleep. According to Bolger’s statements to the media, she instructed Kohberger in an online class and assisted him with his master’s thesis research and writing when he attended DeSales University last year.

My only contact with him was through email and Zoom, so I don’t know his physical characteristics. Bolger told the Daily Mail, “I had no idea whether or not he was married, had a girlfriend, etc.
I barely knew him from educating him online, but he appeared normal. I was unaware of any of his private details. “I think he worked full-time like most of our graduate students do,” she continued.
Bolger claimed that she helped Kohberger with his thesis, which involved interviewing criminals to learn more about their motivations and state of mind. “I was a professor who advised Bryan on his proposal for his master’s thesis.
He sent out a standard questionnaire to gather data for his thesis. From what I’ve heard, it has an odd appearance. However, she assured the Daily Mail that this was parred for the course in criminology.
She said that this concept was part of a well-established theory in the field of criminology and that it explained why and how criminals acted. Kohberger is currently a Ph.D. student at Washington State University in Pullman, roughly 15 miles from Moscow. He graduated from DeSales University last year.
