Kali Jean Randall, Zeke Best : “Manhunt Ends in Tragedy: Idaho Man Wanted for Homicide Found with Deceased 10-Month-Old Son”

Death – Obituary – Accident and Crime News : SWAN VALLEY, Idaho (Scripps News Boise/Court TV) — The manhunt for a suspect wanted in connection with the disappearance of a 10-month-old boy and the murder of his wife ended tragically on Thursday night in Swan Valley, Idaho. The search came to a devastating conclusion after individuals hunting on Kepps Crossing Road, east of Idaho Falls, made a chilling discovery.

Bonneville County Dispatch received a call from the hunters who had stumbled upon a man lying in a sleeping bag on the side of the road. The man turned out to be 45-year-old Jeremy Albert Best, who was wanted by the Teton County Sheriff’s Office in relation to the homicide that occurred on November 30. Best’s wife, 38-year-old Kali Jean Randall, lost her life in the incident.

After securing Best and placing him in a patrol car, law enforcement officers found his vehicle in a nearby embankment. Tragically, they also discovered the lifeless body of his 10-month-old son, Zeke Best, in the same vicinity.

Following a medical evaluation, Best was taken into custody and transported to Bonneville County Jail, where he will remain incarcerated until his arraignment. Meanwhile, the investigation into the incident continues as authorities work to uncover the motive behind the tragic events.

The manhunt began on Thursday night when the Teton County Sheriff’s Office received a distress call from a residence in Victor, Idaho. Deputies arrived at Randall’s home to find her unresponsive, and she was sadly pronounced dead. The authorities believe that Best murdered his wife before fleeing the scene with their son in a Black 1995 Chevy Tahoe.

In a disturbing incident earlier that same day, Best was spotted walking naked through a local general store. The Bonneville County Sheriff’s Office had previously detained him after this incident, and he was evaluated by emergency medical services before being taken to Eastern Idaho Regional Medical Center.

This heart-wrenching tragedy has left the community in shock and mourning. The authorities are working diligently to gather evidence and bring justice to the victims. The details surrounding this case serve as a chilling reminder of the importance of vigilance and the need for support systems to protect vulnerable individuals.
