A retired Boise Police Captain has been condemned by Mayor Lauren McLean and two local policing organizations after he was linked to posts and a conference known for white supremacist views over the weekend.  Captain Matt Bryngelson, one of several officers who spoke out with complaints against recently resigned Chief Ryan Lee, was on the schedule to speak at a conference in Tennessee put on by American Renaissance under the pseudonym Daniel Vineyard. He describes himself as a “race realist” police officer who retired in a mid-size city. 

Authorities investigating the stabbing deaths of four University of Idaho students as they slept said Tuesday that detectives have looked extensively into information that one of the victims had a stalker and have not been able to verify it.  Investigators have pursued hundreds of pieces of information about Kaylee Goncalves having a stalker but haven’t been able to identify one.

A terminally ill man scheduled to be executed in mid-December for his role in the 1985 slayings of two gold prospectors in Idaho is asking a federal court to block the execution.  Attorneys for 66-year-old Gerald Ross Pizzuto Jr. asked the court in documents filed Monday in U.S. District Court in Idaho for a preliminary injunction halting the state’s death warrant, issued last week.

Three judges in the U.S. Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals heard arguments Tuesday in a case that will determine whether an injunction blocking Idaho’s transgender youth sports law can remain in place.  The Idaho Attorney General’s office and attorneys from the Alliance Defending Freedom filed the appeal in September after U.S. District Court Chief Judge David C. Nye ruled the injunction was still valid.

On a facebook post, the Cassia County Sheriffs office said yesterday morning the Mini-Cassia Drug Task Force issued a search warrant at a home believed to be selling drugs to local residents, including children.  Law enforcement seized $13,000, firearms, a pound of marijuana and concentrated THC vape pens.  The Task Force also seized cocaine, LSD and amphetamines.  The exchange would often occur on social media and even on school property.
