Did Idaho Dad Go Too Far in Executing Pedophile Peeping Tom’s Entire Family?

'This dude was staring out the window directly at my girls and I and beating his d#$% off...'

(Headline USA) A mass-shooting incident in Idaho on Father’s Day raised difficult moral questions over how far would be too far in protecting one’s young daughters against an alleged pedophile, who also happened to be one’s neighbor.

Idaho State Police said Monday that they were investigating a shooting that left four people dead in the small city of Kellogg. One person was in custody, according to police.

Around 7:20 p.m. on Sunday, the Shoshone County dispatch center received a 911 call indicating that multiple people had been killed inside a residence in Kellogg, state police said Sunday night in a news release.

Law enforcement officers found four people dead when they arrived and detained a 31-year-old male believed to be connected with the deaths, according to the release.

“Detectives arrived late last night. … They are continuing to work and process the scene,” a state police spokesperson said in a text message.

Crime scene tape on Monday blocked off parts of an apartment complex in Kellogg, about 36 miles east of Coeur d’Alene, KXLY-TV reported.

The shooting occurred at multi-dwelling units behind the Mountain View Congregational Church on Sunday, The Shoshone News-Press reported on the newspaper’s Facebook page.

Law enforcement had not yet identified the victims or the suspect, but the Idaho Tribune identified 18-year-old Devin Smith as one of the victims. The others are believed to be Smith’s family members, including a teenage brother.

According to its report, his assailant, “Major” Jon Kaylor was the father of two young daughters who lived in the upstairs apartment of a split-level house where Smith and his family had recently moved in downstairs.

A lengthy Facebook post attributed to Kaylor’s wife, Kaylie, accused Smith of twice being caught masturbating in the nude while looking out the window at the two underage girls.

“This dude was staring out the window directly at my girls and I and beating his d#$% off,” she wrote. “I saw his naked body jump up on his bunk bed and scoot back.”

Although the Kaylors had filed a police report roughly a week prior to the shooting, police were unable to verify the allegation and dismissed the complaint as a quarell between the neighbors.

However, the Tribune said that after the shooting several of Smith’s former classmates shared stories accusing the recent graduate of similarly inappropriate behavior, including using school devices to look up child pornography.

The Shoshone County Sheriff’s Office, which said in a Facebook post that it responded to the scene with the Kellogg Police Department, said the four people died of gunshot wounds.

The Kellogg Police Department did not immediately respond to an email from The Associated Press seeking additional information.

Law enforcement believes that there is no additional threat to the community, state police said.
