Three weeks before the four Father’s Day murders, the small town of Kellogg, Idaho, became a landmark in the world. culture war.
That was in early June, after 18-year-old Travis Lohr was told he would not be allowed to walk during the upcoming term of his local high school. Graduation for one of his remarks at a conference where seniors were invited to impart words of wisdom to younger students.
He famously said, “A boy is a boy and a girl is a girl. “There’s no in between.”
News of the Kellogg High School sanctions quickly spread on social media and beyond. Local police chief Holly Lindsey, who happens to be the first woman to hold the position and also happens to live with a female teacher at the same school, has warned administrators of the possibility of protests. Lohr’s pro-Lohr masses and the accompanying troubles.
“The Shoshone County Sheriff’s Office has notified the Kellogg School District of concerns regarding the safety of students, staff, and families raised by a number of outside groups and agitators,” the school district said. chief notice. “Based on the information provided, the decision has been made to postpone the graduation ceremony scheduled for June 3, 2023. When it is determined that the ceremony can be safely held, that information will be to shared. We regret having to make this very difficult decision but the safety of our staff, students, their families and local law enforcement is our top priority.”
As it happened, the only protest was 100 locals who gathered outside the school for an hour and a half. An off-duty school bus driver was fired after he joined them, waving an American flag. Graduation took place at the school’s gymnasium on June 3, as originally planned, although Lohr was still not allowed to walk.
But there is actually a serious danger lurking in Kellogg with regard to sex crimes and guns, and nothing to do with transgender children and megalomaniacs and protestors. A senior person used to be Allowed to join the parade was 18-year-old Devin Smith, although many classmates testified that he had a long history of inappropriate behavior and harassment with girls at Kellogg High School. The school seems unable or unwilling to address the ongoing problem.
“He is a child. He needed help and he didn’t get it,” Amanda Rae Hooker, the mother of a classmate, told The Daily Beast.
Devin then took a family photo with his 41-year-old mother, Kenna Guardipee; his 16-year-old brother, Aiken Smith; and his grandfather, Kenneth Guardadipee, 65 years old. Devin wears a black cap and cape, and a yellow shawl with the words “2023” on one end and the school logo, a wildcat, on the other. He holds a diploma in his left hand.
Just before graduation, the Devin family moved into a lower apartment in a two-family home on West Brown Avenue in Kellogg, across from the assisted living facility where his mother worked as a cook. The apartment above has long been owned by Majorjon Kaylor, 31, his wife Kaylie Kaylor, two teenage daughters and a younger son.
“We share a backyard,” Kaylie posted on a Facebook page she has since made private. “My children are on their side but they are out there a lot. They jump on a trampoline with water jets. Almost every time the eldest son went out on his porch and seemed to be watching them. I tried to brush it off because it was their yard too but my biological mother couldn’t shake it off.”
On June 13, 10 days after graduation, Kaylie called the police to report that Devin had been in contact with her girls. She then posted an account of the incident on Facebook. She said she was outside with the girls when one of them said she saw a boy in the window downstairs.
Kaylie wrote: “I said yes, it’s their home, it’s okay and she won’t be a mother, the boy is shaking his penis!,” Kaylie wrote. “This guy is looking straight out the window at me and my girls and beating him d#$%. I saw his naked body jump onto my bunk bed and back.
“I immediately ran to call the major down to knock on the window, the major was away, so the major went to the front door and knocked a few times before seeing the door open. I am distraught.
She wrote that she and her husband called the police.
“I don’t take things like this lightly,” her post continued. “I just wanted to protect my kids but everyone always acts like you’re acting… Now my kids can’t play outdoors like they could for years when only a sweet old lady lived. below us.”
Kaylie added that when the police arrived, Devin started crying and insisted that he had just gotten dressed.
Kaylie wrote: “Never in my life have I seen someone dressed like that. He knew what he did and so did we.
Police took the case to the Shoshone County Prosecutor with a recommendation that Devin be charged with indecent contact. Nothing was done for reasons only the prosecutor’s office could explain, and so far not. In the meantime, Kaylie cut and pasted an image of Devin wearing a cap and gown from her graduation that has caused an uproar on social media about all things transgender.
“This is the sick guy who made eye contact with my daughter while masturbating and exposing himself,” she wrote. Half a dozen of Devin’s former classmates responded that he had behaved similarly at school for years. No transgender child is known to have ever hurt a child at Kellogg High School. This offending child is a completely different story, one that the powers have failed to deal effectively with year after year.
Farren Fields writes: “I went to kindergarten with him until my sophomore year. “He’s a scary guy and won’t stop. He did this for a long time. The police department had to lock him up for life. Is he disgusting?
Scott Schultz wrote: “I went to the same school as him and can absolutely attest that he is a scary guy. “There definitely needs to be something done about him.”
“I also had issues with him before,” wrote Savannah Higgins. “I tried to ask the school to do something about it, but all they did was slap him on the wrist… He took pictures of the girls at our school and worse. It’s scary and unsettling, especially now that he’s out of society. Keep your kids safe. I tried to get a restraining order against him years ago when I first had a problem with him and it was denied because I couldn’t ‘deny a child’s right to go to school’. Keep safe.”
On June 18, Kaylie posted a will for her husband, who is spending Father’s Day working underground as a miner.
“Happy Father’s Day to the most amazing dad. I see everything you do for your children and me. You work hard and stand your ground and don’t give up. You are exactly the person I want our kids to admire. Our life together is the best and I am so lucky to have someone like you as the father of my children. The kids and I love you. Can’t wait for you to come home from work. [heart emoji]”
An affidavit from state police said that when Majorjon arrived home, he entered the family’s upstairs apartment and showed up with a .45 Hi Point caliber semi-automatic pistol in a holster in a holster. worn on the side. Kellogg is about to become a landmark in a gun violence story shrug off from those who call themselves pro-life and are angry about people choosing their preferred pronouns.
After shooting, Majorjon called the police.
“[Kaylie] overheard him on the phone, saying he had killed four people,” the affidavit said. “[He] Give her his phone, keys and wallet and ask her to keep them. [He] said he did what he had and told their kids he protected them.
When police arrived at 7:24 p.m., Majorjon had holstered the pistol, unbuckled his belt, and put it in his black Dodge pickup.
“There was what appeared to be blood and tissue on the pistol,” the affidavit noted.
There was one bullet in the chamber and five in the magazine, meaning he had to reload at a time. The affidavit says that Majorjon told police that during the argument before the shooting, he became “resentful because they didn’t seem to take his concerns with Devin Smith seriously.”
“[Majorjon] said he ‘grabbed it’, ‘lost it’ and ‘did something with it,’,” the affidavit said. “[Majorjon] calling Devin Smith a pedophile.”
Majorjon was arrested and charged with murder and ordered to be held without bail. His next hearing is on July 3. The prosecution has filed court papers stating they will not seek the death penalty.
Nowhere in the affidavit does Majorjom express remorse for killing Devin’s brother. Aiken is appreciated as much as Devin dislikes. Aiken reported in a social media post late last year that he was a member of his school’s Marine Corps Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps.
A friend reported online that he spoke to Aiken shortly before the shooting. The friend said Aiken talked about how bad his brother was. The other kids talked until it all ended the way things usually do when guns are involved.
On Friday, Amanda Rae Hooker, whose daughter graduated with Devin in a delayed ceremony that briefly made Kellogg the focus of culture wars, shed blood on Father’s Day for an owner. Righteous gun ownership is forced to stand up against lawlessness and leftist grooming and indoctrination. Instead, Hooker is about a kid in need of help he never got.
“But that’s no reason to kill four people,” she said.
