The Sheriff involved in the missing Deorr Kunz case gave a bombshell interview on HLN’s Dr. Drew last night. 2-year-old Deorr went missing a little over a year ago, in July 2015. He was reportedly last seen at a campground while with his family. You can read my prior post about Deorr HERE.
Back when Deorr went missing, his parents gave interviews to reporters and told them that they thought Deorr was with his great grandpa, and that the great grandpa had thought he was with them. It was a nightmare situation and you couldn’t help but feel so bad for the parents, who seemed desperate to find him.
As time went on, however, rumors and doubts about what really happened to Deorr started to hit the internet, and in January, Lemhi County Sheriff Lynn Bowerman told reporters that Deorr’s parents are now considered suspects.
He continued to imply as much during yesterday’s interview with HLN’s Lisa Bloom.
Sheriff Bowerman told Bloom that he’s moving more and more towards Deorr’s disappearance being a homicide, and that he thinks Deorr was never even at the campground. He said they ruled out abduction, ruled out wild animals attacking him, and if there had been some sort of accident, there would have been no reason to not come forward with that info.
Sheriff Bowerman then said that Deorr’s family had said Deorr had been wearing his favorite cowboy boots, which were three sizes too big for him. If he had been taken by someone or by a wild animal, Sheriff Bowerman firmly believes they would have found those boots. He reiterated that there has been no credible witness to confirm that Deorr had ever been at the campground.
Those are some pretty damning statements against Deorr’s family, since they were the ones who said he was at the campground.
Bloom also interviewed the private investigator the family hired (who also announced that he thinks Deorr’s family knows more than they are saying), as well as the parents’ attorney. I couldn’t find video for those interviews but CNN posted the transcript, which I have posted screenshots of below:
This is the kind of case that sadly makes me wonder if it will ever be solved.
