The man wanted in connection with the deaths of two women and a teen girl in Idaho in June hasn’t been seen in over a month. During a nationwide manhunt for the suspect, authorities recently determined the a car registered to one of the victims had been parked at a national forest for weeks.
According to the Teton County, Wyoming, Sheriff’s Office, authorities located an abandoned vehicle registered to one of the homicide victims on July 12, at the Bridger-Teton National Forest, in a remote camping area, close to Grand Teton National Park. It’s still unclear which victim the car, a white Ford Focus, belonged to.
According to detectives, someone called the police after the vehicle sat empty and unmoved for weeks. The bodies of Cheryl Baker, 54, Nadja Medley, 48, and Payton Medley, 14, were found on June 19, on suspect Michael Bullinger’s property in Ogden, Idaho. It’s possible that Bullinger arrived at the campground in the victim’s car within days of the murders, but at this point, there is not enough information to confirm.
Despite finding the car, Bullinger remains elusive. Police brought in cadaver dogs to search the campground and surrounding areas, and numerous agencies are assisting in the search, including the National Park Service, Teton County Wyoming Emergency Management, U.S. Forest Service, and the Wyoming Game and Fish Department.
Bullinger, a former pilot for Classic Aviation Services in Utah, is said to be trained in outdoor survival. He stands 6- feet-1 inch tall, weighs about 240 pounds, and has gray hair and brown eyes. Anyone with any information should call 911 immediately or the Teton County Sheriff’s Office at 307-733-2331, or the Canyon County Sheriff’s Office at 208-454-7510.
