Three Found Murdered

A young couple and their 17-month-old daughter have been murdered. Sheriff Dean Finch released the information Monday morning. One person is in custody.

Information released by authorities is very little at the current time. Sheriff Finch said more information will be released when formal charges have been filed.

Harley Million

Samara Kitts

Willa Million

The dead have been identified as 24-year-old Harley Million, 23-year-old Samara Kitts, and 17-month-old Willa Fontaine Million.

The case is being investigated by the Wayne County Sheriff’s Department, the Butler County Sheriff’s Department, and Missouri State Highway Patrol’s Division of Drug and Crime and Control.

On Sunday, authorities had issued an endangered persons advisory for the family that lived between Mill Spring and Ellsinore.

This story will be updated as more information becomes available.

    Prayers for the families of these victims. I can not even begin to imagine their horror while receiving the news of such a senseless act of violence. Hopefully, law enforcement can solve this crime quickly and proper sentencing served to the guilty. I left the community years ago, but I know y’all will support the ones left behind grieving.

      They had a Route 1, Mill Spring address. I believe they considered themselves Ellsinore residents.

    Such a sad story.
    Why would someone want to shoot a baby??? Why didn’t they just put her at a door step or hospital or even a gas station????
    May God punish them for their deeds.
    So very very sad.

      Alice Boekemier, no one said anything about shooting or whether a firearm was involved; you seem to know more of the incident than what’s been released. Maybe you should come down to the sheriff’s department and speak with detectives,🤔.

        There was another police report released. The parents were both stabbed to death. The killer then put the baby in a room alone with their family dog/dogs. Once he had the parents bodies loaded in the bed of their own truck. He took the baby and shot her.

      Let’s not think god is going to punish anyone. He let it happen. Maybe he was punishing the victims by your logic.How would anyone know it was a gun that killed them? I didn’t read that. The world is fucked up.
