Bodies on Kan. farm were missing mom, 2 residents

OTTAWA, Kan. (AP) — Authorities have identified the woman and two men who were found slain on an eastern Kansas farm earlier this week.

Franklin County Sheriff Jeffrey Richards said at a news conference Wednesday that the two men lived at the farm in Ottawa, a community about 50 miles southwest of Kansas City. They were 30-year-old Andrew A. Stout and 31-year-old Steven E. White.

He says the other victim was 21-year-old Kaylie Bailey, an Olathe woman who was last seen with her 18-month-old daughter at the farm May 1. Friends have said Bailey and Stout were dating.

Authorities haven’t said how the victims died. Richards says investigators are still trying to find Bailey’s daughter, Lana.

Authorities found Bailey’s vehicle in Emporia on Tuesday and have been questioning a man they picked up there. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
