Print Article

SANDPOINT — Search warrants have reportedly been executed in two northern Idaho locations in connection with the murder of Travis Jay “T.J.” Gillett in Montana.

The Western News reports that the warrants were executed for a residence and vehicle in Ponderay and vehicle in Bonners Ferry. The report does not specify when the warrants were executed, although Lincoln County sheriff’s officials confirmed they were part of the Gillett homicide investigation. Investigators also conducted interviews in conjunction with the warrant executions.

Gillett, 31, was found shot to death in the Yaak River Valley on Jan. 16. He was shot multiple times, sheriff’s officials have said.

Gillett was reported missing in Bonner County on Jan. 14. Two days later, Lincoln County dispatchers received a report that Gillett left Sandpoint on Jan. 13 with someone from Thompson Falls, Mont. They left in a dark blue or green pickup truck to make a delivery somewhere in the Yaak area. Gillett was due back on Jan. 14, but he never returned and was reported missing, according to The Western News.
