Idaho professor discussed shooting
students before killing graduate

University professor
committed suicide
after killing 22 year
old he dated
BOISE, Idaho (AP) - A Uni-
versity of Idaho professor who
committed suicide after killing
a graduate student he had dated
previously talked about shooting
students in his classroom and was
targeted in a complaint alleging
he was engaging in "sex orgies"
with students, according to newly
released documents.
The slain graduate student,
Katy Benoit, 22, complained to
university officials in June that
assistant psychology professor
Ernesto Bustamante had pointed
a gun at her three times. Benoit
was urged to take safety precau-

tions and go to police.
Another student evaluating
Bustamante last fall complained
his teaching was erratic and thathe
had discussed shooting students. In
December, a complaint called into
a university hotline accused Busta-
mante of having sex with students
and coercing one into having sex
with him and others.
University officials have
defended their response to Ben-
oit's complaint, saying they
contacted Moscow police imme-
diately after she came forward.
They told law enforcement that
a student had been involved in a
domestic violence issue but did
not detail Benoit's allegations.
University spokeswoman Tania
Thompson said under school poli-
cy, Bustamante first had a chance
to respond to the complaint,
which he was served in early July
after university officials received

permission from Benoit.
"He, at that point, has a right
to respond to those allegations,"
Thompson said.
Bustamante denied Benoit's
allegations and told administra-
tors that they had a friendship
that had dissolved after she stole
prescription pills from him. Ben-
oit later told university officials
she "screwed up" the relationship
by stealing the pills, but she was
really scared after he threatened
herwith agun.
Bustamante resigned his posi-
tion effective Aug. 19, and three
days later, police said he shot Ben-
oit nearly a dozen times outside
her Moscow home. Bustamante
committed suicide in a hotel room
shortly after shooting Benoit and
was found with six guns and med-
ications for bipolar disorder and
severe anxiety, police said.
Bustamante, who had been
known to alternately refer to
himself as a "psychopathic kill-
er" and "the beast," disclosed he
took medication for bipolar dis-
order shortly after he was hired
in 2007. As early as the fall of
his first semester, three or four
students went to psychology
department chairman Ken Locke
to express concerns about Busta-
mante's behavior, saying he was
"flirtatious" and showed favorit-
ism to students.
Benoit had met Bustamante in
the fall of 2010 when she took a
psychology course he was teach-
ing, and by the end of the semes-
ter, they were dating.
During student evaluations
of Bustamante that fall, another
student complained about the
professor's behavior.
"He talked about shooting
students, which was disturbing,
and implied that he was (and we
should be) drunk and high every
other day," said the student, who
is not identified in the teaching
In December 2010, Bustaman-
te met with administrators to
discuss a complaint that an anon-
ymouscaller put into a univer-
sity hotline, saying Bustamante
was having sexual relationships
with students.
