Zeke Best : “Idaho Baby Found Dead After Amber Alert; Father Arrested in Connection with Wife’s Death”

Death – Obituary – Accident and Crime News : IDAHOFALLS, Idaho (AP) – An Idaho infant was discovered deceased by law enforcement on Saturday, a day after an Amber Alert was issued for the child. The father of the baby has been apprehended on an arrest warrant related to the death of his wife.

The Bonneville County Sheriff’s Office revealed that the lifeless body of 10-month-old Zeke Best was found approximately 24 miles (39 kilometers) east of Idaho Falls after a hunter reported seeing a man in a sleeping bag by the roadside. The individual was identified as Jeremy Albert Best, who was the subject of the Amber Alert issued on Friday due to suspected child abduction in Teton County.

Police officers located Best’s vehicle in an embankment off the road, and tragically, they discovered the deceased baby at the scene. The investigation into the incident is still ongoing, with Idaho State Police and the FBI actively processing the area.

The tragic turn of events is further compounded by the fact that Best was also wanted in connection with the investigation into the death of his wife, Kali Jean Randall. Authorities found Randall’s body at her residence in Victor on Thursday, and the Teton County Sheriff’s Office is treating her death as a homicide.

Best is currently being held in Bonneville County Jail and will remain in custody until his arraignment. The jail administration, when contacted on Saturday evening, was unable to confirm whether a defense attorney had been assigned to Best’s case.

This devastating incident has shocked the community, and authorities are working diligently to gather all the necessary evidence and information to piece together the events leading up to the deaths of both the infant and his mother. The local and federal agencies involved in the investigation are committed to ensuring justice is served and providing closure for the grieving family members.

As the investigation continues, the community mourns the loss of a young life and extends their support to those affected by this heartbreaking tragedy.
