Justin Honken, 21, Justin Luhr, 34, Caitlin Breeze, 21, dead and multiple injuries reported in boating accident on Lake Coeur d’Alene in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho
A promising rodeo cowboy, a Gonzaga student and a loving father are presumed to have drowned following a boat crash on Lake Coeur d’Alene.
Authorities still have not located their bodies. The families of the victims have asked for their privacy.
The Kootenai County Sheriff's Office says in a statement late Wednesday that a dive team pulled the bodies from Lake Coeur d'Alene following the Saturday night crash.
Loved ones of the deceased are now rallying around the families. Here is how you can help:

Until this case can be fully reviewed by the Kootenai County Prosecutor’s Office, it will remain classified as "Active." Additional information and details will only be released upon the final determination of formal charges to be decided by the Kootenai County Prosecutor/Kootenai County Sheriff's Office news release.
The Sheriff's Office has sent their findings to the Kootenai County Prosecutor's Office for consideration on a variety of criminal charges. The Sheriff's Office wouldn't elaborate on the exactly which charges they are asking the Prosecutor's Office to consider.
Another family has filed a lawsuit against Dennis Magner, a prominent North Idaho businessman who they believe was driving the boat that crashed into another boat, killing three people on board last August.
Two Spokane men, including advertising executive Dennis Magner, pleaded not guilty Friday in the deaths of three people killed in a boat crash last year on Lake Coeur d’Alene.
According to the court schedule, Magner’s trial is overseen by Idaho 1st District Court Judge Cynthia K.C. Meyer and is scheduled into next week.
