Kunz family fires private investigator Klein
Published at | Updated at
The following is a statement from private investigator Philip Klein, the man hired by the family of DeOrr Kunz Jr. to investigate the toddler’s disappearance.
At 5:28 p.m. today – KIC Texas received a fax letter reported to have come from Dennis Deorr Kunz of Idaho Falls, Idaho. Mr. Kunz has released (fired – his term) our firm from the missing person case regarding Deorr Kunz.
This action taken by the Kunz Family is the same action they took with Frank Viltz (sic) – the former investigator – as it was reported that he too came to the same conclusion in his limited time on the case. This is a pattern of behavor it seems.
Accordingly we have received a request to continue this case from two interested parties who wish us to continue. We are vetting those two requests as we speak.
I want to assure you in Idaho that we are not leaving the case.
Further, it is our opinion that Dennis Kunz is a wonderful man, however, we believe he is being misled. We wish Mr. Kunz nothing but the best from all of us at KIC Texas.
Thank you again for the very nice comments. Our committment is only to finding Deorr Kunz and not any other side shows.”
The firing comes one day after Klein spoke with EastIdahoNews.com and revealed his findings on the case.
