HAYDEN, Idaho -- Kootenai County Sheriff’s deputies are investigating a deadly crash off E. Hayden Lake Road.
Deputies found 61-year-old Thomas McLennon’s body inside his Jeep that had crashed into a hillside and some trees before catching fire.
Authorities responded to McLennon’s home Tuesday evening after his fiancé reported him missing. The fiancée said McLennon hadn’t come home from work, but did not know how long he had been missing -- possible since Monday night.
Deputies retraced his usual route from McLennon’s work to his house and found his Jeep Commander about ½ mile from E. Hayden Lake Road near his long, winding driveway.
The Kootenai County Sheriff’s Traffic Investigation Team is investigating.
No other details were immediately available.
