Northern Idaho authorities on Wednesday identified a body found in the Coeur d'Alene National Forest as that of a missing father -- and the death is being investigated as a homicide.

Post Falls Police say the body of 41-year-old William "Bo" Kirk of Coeur d'Alene was found Tuesday.

Police say he went missing Saturday after leaving work at 7 p.m., and a few hours later his truck was found on fire near Athol.

Police previously released surveillance video of a masked man in Kirk's vehicle using Kirk's card at several cash machines to withdraw money.
