From the Complaint in Scofield v. Guillard (D. Idaho), submitted yesterday:
In November 2022, four pupils at the College of Idaho were being murdered at a home in the vicinity of the campus. The tragedy has garnered attention, and inflicted terrific sorrow, during the University, the Point out, and the place. Defendant Ashley Guillard—a purported web sleuth—decided to use the community’s discomfort for her on the net self-advertising. She has posted many films on TikTok falsely stating that Plaintiff Rebecca Scofield (a professor at the University) participated in the murders because she was romantically included with one of the victims. Guillard’s statements are false. Professor Scofield did not participate in the murders, and she experienced under no circumstances achieved any of the victims, let by yourself entered a passionate relationship with them. Guillard’s videos have been considered thousands and thousands of instances, amplifying Guillard’s on line persona at the cost of Professor Scofield’s popularity. Professor Scofield now sues Guillard for defamation….
None of the four learners who were being murdered at any time took a course from Professor Scofield. While the University of Idaho is a fairly small college, she does not remember ever assembly any 1 of these students….
Ashley Guillard promotes herself on Amazon and TikTok as an Internet sleuth that solves large-profile unsolved murders by consulting Tarot cards, and undertaking other readings, to attain facts about the murders. She has purported to clear up the murders of musician Kirshnik Khari Ball (a.k.a. Takeoff), Shanquella Robinson, Tiffany Valiante, Kevin Samuels, and the November murders at the College of Idaho.
