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.
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.
