Idaho man accused of shooting dead four of his neighbors after one exposed himself to his


An Idaho man appeared in court Tuesday accused of shooting dead his four neighbors after he became enraged at the teenage son of the family performing a sex act within sight of a window.

Majorjon Kaylor, 31, who has ‘savage’ tattooed above his eyebrow, reportedly told police he ‘lost it’, and acted to protect his three young children.

On Sunday evening he became involved in an argument with the teenager’s mother, Kenna Guardipee, 41.

She lived in the Kellogg, Idaho, home with her sons Devin Smith, 18, and 16-year-old Aiken, plus her father Kenneth Guardipee, 65.

Five days before the shooting, police were called to the Guardipee’s home after Kaylor reported Devin Smith had exposed himself to his wife, Kaylie, and daughter.

A family friend of Smith, Katy James, told The Spokesman-Review that Devin Smith had a learning disability and struggled socially, but had been getting help through a program at school.

A classmate, Daisy Sawyer, told the paper he had harassed her at school and was known to be inappropriate.

Kaylor came home from working in a mine Sunday evening and confronted Kenna Guardipee, angry that her son was unlikely to face further punishment for his acts.

Kaylor then shot the mother in the head, as well as her father and two sons.

Police responded to reports of shots fired at a duplex at 515 W. Brown Ave around 7:20 pm on Sunday.

Shortly after the first call, a second call came in reporting that someone had ‘executed his neighbors,’ according to court documents.

Investigators found a .45 caliber Hi-Point semi-automatic pistol with what appeared to be blood on it in a truck parked in the duplex’s driveway, according to court documents obtained by The Spokesman-Review.

Kaylor told police that he ‘snapped’ and ‘lost it’ over the dispute, saying he had spoken to Kenna Guardipee and her father, but was upset that they did not appear to take his concerns seriously.

His wife told investigators he ‘said he did what he had to do, and to tell their kids he protected them.’

She added that she overheard him saying he had killed four people.

A GoFundMe has been started for Kaylie and the three children by Kaylor’s brother Buddy.

‘I am trying to raise money for my sister-in-law and 3 small children for rent groceries and the necessities to live after a tragic event,’ wrote Buddy Kaylor.

‘After enduring continuous unthinkable sexual harassment by a neighbor the current situation has left my brother in jail and the three kids and mom without a provider, thank you for your donations anything helps.’

Kaylor could face the death penalty or life in prison if convicted.

He also faces a separate felony burglary charge, and police said he had a ‘sparse and sporadic’ criminal history for drug abuse, battery and traffic offenses, according to KXLY4 News.

On Tuesday, Kaylor appeared in court in Wallace, Idaho – 50 miles east of Coeur d’Alene – in an orange jumpsuit and handcuffs.

Prosecutor Benjamin Allen said Kaylor confessed to the shooting when interviewed by police.

‘Admissions were ultimately made to the offenses charged,’ Allen said.

Allen said the killings were done in a ‘horrific manner.’

Magistrate Judge Keisha Oxendine did not set bond and Kaylor will continue to be held in jail. Another hearing has been set for July 3.
