Unsealed documents shed new light on Bo Kirk investigation

COEUR D'ALENE, Idaho -

Unsealed court documents are shedding new light on the murder of Bo Kirk. 

The Hayden man was found shot to death in late October. In the weeks that followed detectives arrested David Hutto and a second unidentified man. On Monday, a judge in the case unsealed documents that are shedding new light on both the identity of that second person and what led investigators to David Hutto in the first place. KHQ has been going through a recording of a hearing from October 30th.

Based on the audio from that recording we've learned that investigators say they learned about David Hutto from a man named Justin Booth.

We told you about Justin Booth last week. He was living with Hutto in Hayden and was arrested the same day Hutto was. He's in Bonner County Jail on a federal hold charged with being a felon in possession of a firearm.

So far we haven't heard if Booth is that second person authorities arrested in connection to Bo Kirk's death, but based on the recording, Booth is without a doubt involved. Also according to the recording, Hutto admitted he was there when Kirk was killed. He did not admit to killing Kirk, but when asked about a possible third suspect Hutto cleared that person's name. When investigators asked Hutto how he was so sure that third person wasn't involved, he said "I was there."

We are still going through these recordings and will post any updates as soon as we have them.
