Heartless & Heartfelt Reactions to Professor Wrongly Accused of Moscow Murders
MOSCOW MURDERS update
Moscow, Idaho. It was Sunday, Nov. 13 when four University of Idaho students were found slain in their off-campus residence.
Since then, scarce details regarding the quadruple homicide have left locals astonished and longing for answers. As Moscow Police continue their investigation, speculation grows regarding the killer's identity.
From mainstream media outlets to social media platforms, theories about what happened that night have engulfed the national dialogue. One theory, however, stands out among the rest.
After TikTok user Ashley Guillard shared multiple videos baselessly accusing U of I educator Rebecca Scofield with involvement in the homicides, all hell broke lose. During the days that followed, Scofield's name was raked across the coals in the national spotlight.
In the fight to restore her good name, KTVB reports Scofield has filed a lawsuit against Guillard. The lawsuit was filed after Guillard dismissed two cease-and-desist notifications from Scofield's legal representation.
Moscow Police have since eliminated Scofield as a suspect in the investigation, but her reputation continues to take hits across the internet.
In an interview with the Independent, Wendy Olson, the professor's attorney, addressed the trauma caused by the baseless accusations.
The statements made about Professor Scofield are false, plain and simple. What’s even worse is that these untrue statements create safety issues for the Professor and her family. They also further compound the trauma that the families of the victims are experiencing and undermine law enforcement efforts to find the people responsible in order to provide answers to the families and the public. -Wendy Olson
Idaho's response to the professor's alleged involvement and absolution has been a mixed bag of heartfelt and heartless reactions. While some Idahoans are siding with the professor, others remain weary of the educator despite her corroborated alibi.
Scroll on for a series of Idaho's reactions to the bizarre & disproven Scofield theory.
