(WASHINGTON EXAMINER) – Police have cleared an Idaho University professor as a suspect in the murders of four students last month, noting they do not believe she had any involvement despite videos being posted on TikTok that theorize the history teacher was responsible for the killings.
“At this time in the investigation, detectives do not believe the female associate professor and chair of the history department at the University of Idaho suing a TikTok user for defamation is involved in this crime,” the Moscow Police Department said in a statement on Tuesday.

The update comes after Rebecca Scofield, a history professor at the University of Idaho, filed a lawsuit last week accusing TikTok user Ashley Guillard of defamation after she posted videos claiming the professor planned and carried out the unsolved murders. Guillard’s videos have garnered millions of views on the platform and feature the TikToker claiming to solve criminal cases by using Tarot cards and other cartomancy readings.
