IDAHO FALLS — A private investigator who was hired by the family of DeOrr Kunz Jr. to help find the missing toddler in planning to release his interviews after a lawsuit brought by the family against him was dismissed, according to East Idaho News. 

A judge dismissed the last part of a lawsuit that was filed by Dennis “DeOrr” Kunz, DeOrr’s grandfather, and Vernal Kunz, DeOrr’s father, in 2017. 

The lawsuit against Philip Klein was filed for what the family said was a breach of contract, infliction of emotional distress, libel, slander and fraud.

In February, a judge dismissed most of the case and last week the remaining part was dropped.

Klein said in a news that his prayer was that DeOrr is found and their investigation is wrong.

“Unfortunately, it is my belief that our investigation is correct and the proper suspects have been named,” said Klein.

Klein made statements to news outlets concerning his investigation into toddlers disappearance, including inconsistency in the family’s stories and blood found on the tire of a truck.

Klein also said Vernal failed multiple lie detector tests. It is Klein’s belief the child is dead.

The family claimed Klein’s statements were defamatory and violated the confidentiality portion of the contract.
