Investigators find 'missing' camo jacket, toys at Kunz apartment

DeOrr Kunz Jr. has been missing for more than a year.

A private firm investigating the case DeOrr Kunz, who's been missing for more than a year, says a jacket that he reportedly was wearing on the day he went missing was found at an Idaho Falls apartment complex.

Klein Investigations and Consulting posted on Facebook Sunday a new report "to the people of Idaho" into the Kunz case, which has received national attention.

The firm says investigators searched leftover furniture and clothing at the apartment complex on the 900 block of Ada in Idaho Falls after the couple was evicted for not paying rent. The landlord, the firm says, gave investigators the OK to search the abandoned property.

Found in the search include four matchbox cars that were previously described by the parents as "missing and they did not know where they were," as well as a camo jacket, that boy's parents say he was wearing on the day he went missing, according to the report.

In addition to the toys and jacket, Klein says it found a credit card that was used by a family friend with "seemingly purchases of items unknown to investigators in testimony." An insurance tracking device box along with instructions was also found.

The firm says all of the evidence was turned over to the Lemhi County Sheriff's Office.

Last month, during a five-day search of the area, a trained cadaver dog hit on five different targets, including a site about 3/4 of a mile from the Leodore campground.

"Investigators believe this site may have been a 'holding site' for some type of human body," according to the Klein report. No other evidence was found at the site.

Klein also says that it believes the timeline of events has been moved up to 5 p.m. the day before the 911 call was made.
