Authorities launch manhunt for armed suspect in kidnapping, homicide case

VICTOR, ID – A tense situation is unfolding in Idaho as law enforcement officials are in pursuit of a suspect, considered armed and extremely dangerous, linked to a kidnapping and a murder case. The suspect is implicated in the abduction of a 10-month-old baby from a Victor residence.

Teton County authorities have triggered an Amber Alert in Idaho and Wyoming, in a bid to find the missing baby, Zeke Gregory Best. The person of interest, Jeremy Albert Best, is reportedly behind the wheel of a black 1995 Chevrolet Tahoe SUV, bearing Idaho license plates 1T39349.

Late Thursday night, Teton County Sheriff’s Office was summoned to a house on the 4600 block of Skyline Loop following a 911 call about a disturbance. Responding officers discovered a lifeless woman, later identified as the baby’s mother, Kali Jean Randall. The 38-year-old’s death is being probed as a homicide, with 48-year-old Jeremy Best emerging as a potential suspect.

In a recent press statement, Teton County officials emphasized the potential threat posed by the suspect. They cautioned the public against any attempts to approach or confront the suspect, who is believed to be armed and highly dangerous.
