Missing since Sept. 24, the body of the 18-year-old Boise State student was discovered in a remote area of Boise County on Oct. 22. An outpouring of grief on the Boise State campus followed news of Bush's death, but many questions remained about how the well known and highly regarded student had gone missing and what might have been the cause of death.

- Bruce Marchant was arrested in Boise in August 2014, charged with a count of misdemeanor battery. The charge was later dropped.
Detectives said they issued an arrest warrant for Marchant's capture Dec. 6, following weeks of investigation that included nearly 200 interviews. Boise police received information Dec. 7 that Marchant was in a New York hospital, prompting detectives to fly east to assist in his arrest.
Police said Bush's disappearance had been suspicious from the beginning, triggering a major investigation and countless tips to the Crime Stoppers hotline.
Boise police said the exact timing of Marchant's extradition to Idaho would be "handled by the appropriate courts." The case has been assigned to the Ada County prosecutor's office.
