OTTAWA, Kan. (AP) — The bodies of a woman and two men who were found slain on an eastern Kansas farm were those of a young mother who went missing last week with her 18-month-old daughter and two men who lived there, authorities said Wednesday.
Investigators are still searching for Kaylie Bailey's daughter, Lana Bailey, and were questioning a man Wednesday who they picked up in Emporia, a community about 50 miles southwest of the Ottawa area farm where the bodies were found. Authorities said they also found Bailey's vehicle in Emporia late Tuesday, but they didn't say whether the man they were questioning had been driving it.
The Franklin County Sheriff's Office didn't identify the man being questioned, but in a statement Wednesday said detectives had wanted to speak to him as part of the investigation into the disappearance of Bailey, 21, and her daughter, who lived in Olathe.
Sheriff Jeffrey Richards said at a news conference Wednesday that the two men found slain on the farm were 30-year-old Andrew A. Stout and 31-year-old Steven E. White. He didn't say how any of the victims were killed.
Friends of Bailey have said she and Stout had a relationship and that on the day she disappeared, she had planned to drop her daughter off with him for the day.
