Man's remains believed found 14 years after disappearance

CHICAGO (WLS) -- Detectives with the Idaho State Police found dismembered skeletal human remains in a remote cabin and the property surrounding it in Boise County while executing a search warrant Tuesday.

Detectives say they recently received information that led them to the cabin and property in search of the body at 13 Betty Lane in Boise County.

Police say the remains are believed to be those of Joshua James Reddington, who has been missing since May 26, 2000. Reddington, of Salmon, Idaho, was 25 at the time of his disappearance and was last seen in Idaho City.

The investigation continues and a cause of death has yet to be determined, police say, but added it appears to be a homicide.

The Chicago Tribune reports Reddington was last seen with Michael Dauber, the son of Chicago mob hitman William Dauber.

Michael Dauber was charged in March with the 2007 murder of Steven Kalogerakos in Idaho. On March 12, Idaho State Police arrested Michael S. Dauber in Nampa, Idaho, for the murder of Kalogerakos, a former Idaho City resident. Kalogerakos was reported missing in January of 2008, Idaho State Police said.

William Dauber, a street tax collector, and his wife Charlotte, were themselves among the murder victims on which 2007's infamous Family Secrets trial was based.

Anyone with information about Reddington's disappearance or death is urged to contact the Idaho State Police at 208-846-7550. Callers may remain anonymous.
