Boise Shooter and Inmate Linked to 2 Recent Homicides in North Idaho

The police report sent out by Idaho State Police plays out like a Hollywood movie. After Nicholas Umphenour arrived at St. Alphonsus Medical Center in Boise in a stolen Honda Civic, he shot 2 Idaho Department of Corrections officers and helped Skylar Meade escape.

It is believed that they then traveled north to Juliaetta, ID, and stole the vehicle of 83-year-old James Mauney while he was out walking his dogs. They also took his dogs and Mauney was later found dead by police near the abandoned Honda a few miles east in Leland. Police believe Mauney was an innocent victim who did not know the criminals.

Umphenour and Meade continued east to Orofino, ID, where it is now believed they killed a second man, 72-year-old Gerald Henderson. The dogs of Mauney were found at the Orofino residence along with a pair of shackles believed to be left by Meade. The dogs were returned, unharmed, to the family of Mauney.

Henderson may have had previous interactions with Meade and Umphenour.
