Grim Discovery: 2 Bodies Found in Missing Kansas Moms Case

Police discovered two dead bodies in rural Texas while investigating the abduction of two Kansas mothers who went missing in Oklahoma, police revealed on Sunday.

The bodies will be “transported to the Office of the Oklahoma Chief Medical Examiner to determine identification and cause and manner of death,” according to a statement on X by the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation, the FBI, and the Texas County Sheriff’s Office.

Authorities have yet to identify the deceased.

Moms Veronica Butler, 27, and Jilian Kelley, 39, both of Hugoton, Kansas, have been missing since March 30. The missing women’s last known location is Oklahoma, where they were heading to pick up Butler’s children for a birthday party in Kansas.
