The prime suspect in the murder of three school-age children was transported to a Kamloops hospital from RCMP cells in Merritt yesterday morning.
At press time, Allan Schoenborn, 40, remained under a physician’s care at Royal Inland Hospital, confirmed Darshan Lindsay, spokeswoman for Interior Health.
Schoenborn is the RCMP’s only suspect in the deaths of his three children.
He was captured, hungry and dehydrated, Wednesday morning by local hunter Kim Robinson.
He had spent 10 days alone in the bush with only his dog for company.
“He was a little bastard that hadn’t ate for 10 days,” Robinson said yesterday. “There was nothing to the guy.”
Upon his arrest, Schoenborn was transported to Nicola Valley Health Centre, treated for dehydration, and held in RCMP cells in Merritt.
Early yesterday morning a decision was made to transport him to the larger hospital in Kamloops.
Schoenborn has not been charged with the murders, but is charged with uttering threats stemming from an incident at a Merritt school two weeks ago.
