Idaho Parents Deny Involvement in Son’s Disappearance
IDAHO FALLS, Idaho (AP) — The parents of an Idaho boy who went missing during a family camping trip have denied any involvement in their son's disappearance. Jessica Mitchell and Vernal Kunz told KIFI-TV they last saw their 2-year-old son, DeOrr Kunz, on July 10.
The parents spoke publicly for the first time since Lemhi County Sheriff Lynn Bowerman named them as suspects in January. Bowerman believes the couple knows more about what happened to the boy.
No arrests have been made in the case. KIFI-TV reports the parents denied murdering their son and say there was no accident. The boy was last seen on July 10 at his family's campsite at Timber Creek Campground, just south of the town of Leadore near the Montana border.
