The man accused of murdering his 22-year-old son in an Idaho park has died in hospital, authorities said on Thursday.
Daniel Bostwick, 46, died in an intensive care unit at the Salt Fork Lodge in Idaho, the Idaho Department of Public Safety said.
Bostwick was arrested in June after authorities found the body of his son, Daniel Anthony Bostwick, inside a tent at the lodge, a park spokesman said.
Bostws son was taken to hospital after he was found in a tent with gunshot wounds.
He had been in custody since August and was facing murder charges, according to a statement from the Idaho Attorney General’s Office.
“He was found dead inside the Salt Fawn Lodge on Tuesday, August 25, 2018,” the statement said.
The Idaho State Police said Bostworth had a history of mental illness and that he had a warrant out for his arrest.
In August, Bostwig was charged with two counts of first-degree murder in the death of his two young children.
Bostwicks son was among the five people killed in the July 28 attack in Salt Fork, Idaho.
Authorities found the bodies of two other children at the park after the attack.
The man was arrested for the deaths of the three children and a pregnant woman.
