But one person’s investigation took things too far – as they’re currently being sued by a University of Idaho professor for defamation!
Based on NBC News, Rebecca Scofield — an associate professor and dean of the school’s history department — filed a lawsuit in the Idaho District Court on Wednesday, alleging TikTok users Ashley Guillard perjured that she planned a murder with another student.

In the videos, Ashley claims Rebecca staged the murders because she was related to one of the victims – believed to be Kaylee. Without providing evidence to back up his claims, TikToker alleged that the student was trying to break up with Rebecca to “avoid going public with the relationship,” KTVB7 report. Ashley stated at one point:
“I don’t care what you say, Rebecca Scofield killed [the victims] and she was the one who initiated the plan…”
She didn’t stop there. Ashley went on to say in another video:
“Rebecca Scofield is going to prison for the murder of four University of Idaho students whether you like it or not.”
However, the professor refused. Rebecca said in the lawsuit that she didn’t even have any of the four victims in her class and that she had never met them. In fact, she claims that she wasn’t even in Moscow on the day of the murder that she was in Oregon with her husband to see some friends. The complaint states:
“Professor Scofield has never met Guillard. She doesn’t know her. She doesn’t know why Guillard chose her to repeatedly falsely accuse her of ordering the tragic murders and involving one of the victims. Professor Scofield knows she has been harmed by fake TikToks and false claims.”
Based on NBC News, Rebecca even asked Ashley to take down the video, and sent a letter asking to stop and cancel on November 29, however, she never did and continued to post the video. When Rebecca’s attorney filed another cease and desist order on December 8, Ashley posted the document on TikTok, saying that Rebecca would have to “submit actual legal documents to federal court” to claim ask her to delete it. Over the next week and a half, Ashley posted 20 more videos accusing her of the crime. Now, the teacher says the accusations have created loads of mental suffering and damaged her reputation. More than that, she fears for her family’s safety:
“She fears that Guillard’s false statements could motivate someone to harm her or her family members.”
In response to the lawsuit, Ashley shared a video on Thursday titled “Rebeca Scofield Will Regret This Lawsuit.” She says in the clip:
“You don’t understand, I went against the big and small, the corporations and the giants, the systemic and racist policies and won. They all regret having turned against me. All of them. Now Rebecca will be added to that list of unfortunate people.”
