A nationwide manhunt is underway for a 60-year-old pilot whom police say is responsible for a gruesome triple homicide in Caldwell, Idaho.
The Idaho State Journal reports that following the identification of 48-year-old Nadja Medley and her 14-year-old daughter Payton, the Canyon County Sheriff’s Office charged Gerald “Mike” Bullinger with first-degree murder for their deaths, as well as that of Cheryl Baker, 56, who was Bullinger’s wife of 10 years.
The Canyon County Coroner’s Office had to use DNA evidence to identify the Medleys after their bodies were left to rot for over a week in a shed on the property Bullinger and Baker allegedly planned to retire to. Baker’s body was next to theirs, all three dead from a single gun shot wound, and covered with a plastic sheet. Police also found several dead birds, dogs and rabbits in the shed, according to The Daily Mail.
