Murder is Really Rare in Idaho...

But when we have them, they are...unique.  From April 10, 2014 KBOI:
The Boise County Sheriff's Office says Michael Dauber of Nampa was arrested in March for murdering Steven Kalogerakos of Idaho City. Officials had originally believed Kalogerakos went missing.

According to court documents, Dauber shot and killed Kalogerakos on or near December 27, 2007 with a pistol. But in Boise County Court on Thursday morning, prosecutors said Kalogerakos's body was dismembered....

"Mr. Dauber, in this case, as an aggravated factor also admitted to dismembering the body of Steven Kalogerakos with an ax and a bone saw," Gee said. "The forensic evidence in this case supports that admission. The fact that he then took those body parts, put them in a plastic bag in a rough sack and dumped them in a shallow grave."
The local paper, the Idaho World, reports that Dauber is the son of a Chicago mob boss.


  1. The murder happened 7 years ago, and he is brought to trial now?

    I guess there's a good reason that statutes of limitations aren't usually attached to murder.

    On another point, "son of a Chicago mob boss" helps explain the dismemberment.

  2. The prosecutor's claim is that the defendant talked about the murder and dismemberment to at least three people whom he was trying to intimidate as part of drug dealing.
