The F.B.I. and the Idaho Dispatch

By • December 8, 2021

Several people have inquired about a rumor that F.B.I. agents had visited my home.

I can confirm that two agents did indeed visit my home recently. The agents were inquiring about the Boise Towne Square Mall shooting.

I believe this was a result of our live stream coverage on Fry Street, which was where the home of the suspect, Jacob Bergquist, had lived. At the time, it was not publicly known that the Fry Street location was Bergquists’ place of residence. Still, Idaho Dispatch had received a tip from a reliable source who had disclosed to us that numerous police officers and federal agents had swarmed an area where he lived several hours after the shooting ended.

The individual had given Idaho Dispatch enough details that we felt confident the Fry Street location where Bergquist lived. So we did the live stream, which you can see here for reference (story continues below).

Shortly after Idaho Dispatch aired the video from Fry Street, police confirmed they had searched a trailer home in the area. The location was ultimately proven to be that of Bergquist.

When the F.B.I. agents came to my home, they were following up on some leads and were told that I may be of some assistance to them. I told them I could not disclose my source, and one of the agents said they were not requesting to know the source, but I did tell them I would ask my source if they were willing to talk to the F.B.I. about the case.

The Idaho Dispatch source said they had been in touch with law enforcement previously and that they were willing to talk to the F.B.I. if needed.

That was the context of the F.B.I. visit to my home last week. If you have any additional questions please feel free to reach out to me.

Thank you,

  1. wow that was completely pointless story, im still waiting to hear what the shooters motives where? why is the FBI involved but we will never know. because youre not actual journalist.

    1. I think we’re all indebted to Trevor for clearly stating what needed to be said. I’m particulary glad that these lovely children were here today to hear that speech. Not only was it authentic frontier gibberish, it expressed a courage little seen in this day and age.

    2. Wow….so who is an “actual journalist?” We are sick of the lies and omissions of the Legacy Media and Greg does the groundwork that we want in order to uncover the truth. I’ll take his work over KGBTV et al any day. I also question that you actually want to know the shooter’s motives and just want to troll this publication.

    3. Dearest Trevor, Do you remember: Stephen Craig Paddock (April 9, 1953 – October 1, 2017) was an American mass murderer who perpetrated the 2017 Las Vegas shooting. Paddock opened fire into a crowd of approximately 22,000 concert-goers attending a country music festival on the Las Vegas Strip, killing 60 people and injuring 867 (411 of whom were wounded by gunfire). Paddock committed suicide in his hotel room following
      Did the FBI of infamous fame ever find out the motive?????????? Hell NO. Why??
      Join the FBI and find out.

      1. yes i remember, i remember how the largest mass murder in history was never assigned a motive and completely disappeared from the media in a week

  2. Greg is the ONLY news entity that is staying on this story. There are many questions about the shooter that we need answered. The only narrative that I expect from Legacy Media is a politically loaded one. The entire back story of this Bergquist guy is suspect to me. He seems too much like a cut out character. He makes a big deal out of his quest to get gun rights for ex-cons, then acts a fool at the mall, then commits murder with a gun. Perfect fodder for Bloomberger’s who need a poster child for attacking Idaho gun owners’ rights.
