A professor sued a TikTok crime sleuth who claimed she was involved in the mysterious killing of four students from Idaho. This accusation has puzzled authorities for several weeks.
Ashley Guillard, a TikTok personality from Texas, posted several videos on the platform accusing Rebecca Scofield (University of Idaho Assistant History Professor) of being in a relationship with one of the slain students. She also ordered their murders.
These videos have been viewed millions of times.
Schofield refuted the allegations in a lawsuit claiming that she had never met any one of the students.
The investigation into the strange murders of students at a Moscow rental house in Idaho has been widely criticized by law enforcement officials. The investigation into the bizarre murders of students at a Moscow, Idaho rental home has been difficult for police to solve. This led to online sleuths Guillard posting speculations and unconfirmed reports.
Schofield claimed in the lawsuit Guillard was causing damage to her reputation through false accusations.
The lawsuit stated that Guillard’s statements were false. “Professor Scofield was not involved in the murders and had never even met the victims. Guillard’s videos were viewed by millions upon millions, increasing Guillard’s online reputation at the expense of Professor Scofield.
Guillard responded to the TikTok lawsuit with another TikTok video.
She replied, “I am actually gleaming in excitement.” “I am going to immediately begin planning because I cannot wait for my ideas to be presented in court concerning Rebecca Scofield’s role in the assassination of four University of Idaho students.”
She said in a second video that Schofield would regret suing her.
Law enforcement authorities have warned the public to not share or spread alternative theories about bizarre murders.
