POCATELLO -- An Idaho sheriff says searchers have found the body of a missing 23-year-old Pocatello woman.

Bannock County Sheriff Lorin Nielsen told the Idaho State Journal that Angelea Schultz's body was found Friday evening west of the Fort Hall town site where recent construction had taken place on a septic system.

County authorities say her 25-year-old boyfriend, Boede Paul, called the sheriff's office on Wednesday, asked to meet with detectives and confessed to killing Schultz, who disappeared Jan. 6.

Nielsen says Paul pointed out roughly where he buried the body. He had been working on the construction site. Paul then pulled a gun on detectives who were questioning him and died several hours later in a shootout with a SWAT team.

Bannock County Coroner Kim Quick said Friday night that he's declared Paul's death to be suicide by cop.

In addition to Schultz's body, the sheriff says searchers recovered bloody clothing and a baseball bat that may have been used to kill her.
