Fam of missing man hints at death

As North Idaho authorities prepare to release new information Wednesday about the disappearance of Coeur d’Alene father and X-ray technician William “Bo” Kirk, some members of Kirk’s family are expressing grief and anger on social media about his apparent death.

Post Falls Police Chief Scot Haug and Kootenai County Sheriff Ben Wolfinger plan to give an update on the case at 1 p.m. Wednesday at the Post Falls police station. The sheriff’s office on Tuesday responded to a report of a deceased male found in the woods a few miles from where Kirk’s pickup truck was found on fire Saturday night, after Kirk failed to arrive home after a work shift in Post Falls.

Cynthia Bogner, one of Kirk’s sisters, posted Wednesday morning on Facebook, “Their is a special place in hell waiting for you you monster. You will get what you deserve! How dare you take my brothers life! Do you care that you have deprived his children of their father? His wife out of her rock and soul mate?”

Bogner continued, “Please if you have any clue who this Murderer could be, please do not hesitate to report it to the authorities! Catching this horrible man won’t bring my brother back, but it will give me some peace of mind to know that this waist of human life will never be able to destroy another family again.”

Laura Filipowicz, a cousin of Kirk’s, also took to Facebook to express her emotions and to thank people for their support of the family/Scott Maben, SR. More here.
