WEBER COUNTY, Utah (ABC4 Utah) The family of the woman and teenager identified as victims in Idaho triple murder has released a statement.
Nadja Medley, 48, and Payton Medley, 14, were identified Tuesday after their bodies were found covered in a shed in Caldwell, Idaho in June.
The Medley family released the following statement Wednesday:
“Nadja & Payton Medley were tragically taken from us this summer and everyone impacted by this, both family and friends, are staying close to one another, encouraging one another and supporting the local and federal authorities. Collectively, we are praying that the truth will be revealed and we will be able to begin the road to healing. Though we have wanted to publicly address this situation for some time, we chose to respect the direction of the investigators in this case by avoiding making any public statements. We have been working closely with the authorities throughout this time, and will continue to do so, but we ask that you honor our request for privacy during this difficult time as we mourn and grieve. Thank you for your prayers and well wishes, and we greatly appreciate your continued support.”
The third victim, Cheryl Baker, 56, of Ogden, was identified in June.
Prosecutors in Idaho have confirmed they intend to charge Gerald Michael Bullinger, 60, in the case. Bullinger has not been seen since before the bodies were found on his property.
