PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — A lawyer for the Tigard man named as a suspect in the disappearance of a 19-year-old Brigham Young University student filed court papers Thursday that appeared to validate his claim of innocence.

On the morning that Brooke Wilberger disappeared from a Corvallis apartment complex, Sung Koo Kim was 80 miles away, at home with his family, making online stock trades via Ameritrade, according to the memorandum filed Thursday by his lawyer, Janet Lee Hoffman of Portland.

Kim was the only one who had access to the private investment account he was using, and Ameritrade submitted a letter and a transaction record verifying that he was online at the time, the memorandum states.

He is being held in Multnomah County on $10 million bail.
