Authorities in Idaho are investigating after a man allegedly killed his pregnant wife on Thursday at their home and then kidnapped their 10-month-old son. The boy, Zeke Gregory Best, was found dead Saturday in a black Chevy SUV with his naked father nearby, deputies said.

The tragic situation began just before noon Thursday when the Bonneville County Sheriff’s Office was called to the Swan Valley General Store after a man, later identified as Jeremy Albert Best, was naked and walking through the store, according to a press release. Video obtained by EastIdahoNews.com showed the man identified as Best slumped over a counter before being escorted out of the store. An ambulance took Best to a hospital for medical and mental health concerns, deputies said.

He was not arrested. A hospital spokesperson told EastIdahoNews.com that Best was later discharged. Authorities said they later arrested Best Saturday and found Zeke’s body after hunters spotted the defendant nude on the side of a road.

Around 11:40 p.m. Thursday, the Teton County Sheriff’s Office received a 911 call where dispatchers heard a “disturbance” over the line, a press release said. Deputies responded to the home in the 4600 block of Skyline Loop in the city of Victor, which is near the Idaho-Wyoming border, and found a woman later identified as Kali Jean Randall, 38, “non-responsive.” First responders pronounced her dead on scene and consider her death a homicide, deputies said.
