Standoff in Idaho ends in suicide

Law enforcement officers in Eastern Idaho found themselves involved in a standoff late last week that ended in tragedy.

At about 630 on Friday evening, March 10th the Teton County Sheriff’s Office was involved in a pursuit of a vehicle driven by 36-year-old Kevin William Bosch, of Victor, Idaho.


Bosch allegedly had a felony warrant for Stalking in the First Degree. The pursuit chase that sometimes reached speeds of 85 MPH, went into Fremont County Idaho towards Ashton, Idaho.where the vehicle was stopped by spike strips laid across the road by a Fremont County deputy and an Ashton Police Department officer

Units from Bonneville County, Fremont County, Idaho State Police and Ashton Police Department secured the scene while the Fremont Sheriff’s Special Response Team was dispatched.

Negotiations began for Bosch to turn himself into custody and lasted for the next several hours. Bosch ended negotiations at approximately 3:28AM when he died from an apparent  self-inflicted gunshot wound. 

No further information is planned to be released at this time.
