Two men were arrested Friday in the slaying of Coeur d’Alene resident William “Bo” Kirk.

The Kootenai County Sheriff’s Office did not release their names or any details about the arrests.

One man is expected to be charged with murder and the other will face related charges, the Sheriff’s Office said. Officials thanked the public for the numerous tips they received during the investigation.

Kirk vanished after he left his job as an X-ray technician at Northwest Specialty Hospital in Post Falls at 7 p.m. Oct. 22. Someone driving Kirk’s truck withdrew cash from his bank accounts at two banks. A second man was visible in the truck in surveillance videos released to the public.

Kirk’s burning truck was found later that evening in the 23000 block of North Rimrock Road.

In the days following his disappearance, Kirk’s friends and family began a frantic search for his body and issued pleas for his safe return.

Kirk’s body was found Tuesday near Hayden Creek in the Coeur d’Alene National Forest.
