Fear For Missing Olathe Woman And Baby As Three Bodies Are Found

May 7, 2013

Identities of three people found murdered on a rural acreage near Ottawa, Kansas remain a public mystery.  Friends of a couple who lived there initially found two bodies.  

The most recent discovery adds up to two men and a woman, dead.

Without names, Franklin County Sheriff Jeff Richards would not say whether the female victim is a missing Olathe woman. 

Olathe Police say 22-year-old Kaylie Bailey and her one and a half year old daughter were reported missing May 3, last seen nearly a week earlier. 

There are reports baby clothing was found near one body. Sheriff Richards was adamant about the subject,“what I’m telling you are the things that I know and not speculation. And so, at this time, I can’t say that those people ever made it to the address in our county.”

The missing woman is the sister-in-law of one of two people of interest, a man wanted for questioning about  the murders, according to the Lawrence Journal World.

Forty investigators are involved, including the Kansas Highway Patrol.  Johnson County Sheriff Frank Denning sent crime scene technicians and offered services of the sheriff’s criminology lab.
