Wichita police say that Emily Glass, questioned in the disappearance and death of 5-year-old Lucas Hernandez, was found dead early Friday morning.
Police spokesman Charley Davidson said Jonathan Hernandez -- Lucas' father and Glass' live-in boyfriend -- called police just before 2 a.m. to say his girlfriend had committed suicide. Davidson said Hernandez had just returned to the home near Kellogg and Edgemoor.
"Officers discovered a rifle at her feet and three suicide notes in the residence," Davidson said.
He said the coroner will determine the cause of Glass' death and that the investigation into her death is continuing.
Glass reported Lucas missing in February, telling police the boy was gone after she woke up from a nap. Hernandez was out of town at the time, and Glass was watching Lucas and her daughter.
An extensive search by police and community volunteers failed to find Lucas, whose face appeared on billboards across town and on social media.
