Missing Kansas Baby's Body Found But Cops Won't Say Why She Died

Horrifying 5

Kyle FlackIf you've been following the sad story of Lana Leigh Bailey, the 18-month-old baby who went missing in Kansas last week, the news you least wanted to hear is in. Cops have found a baby's body, and they think it's the missing Kansas girl. Considering police had already charged 27-year-old Kyle Flack with killing Lana as well as her mother and two other adults, it was only a matter of time.

The discovery means the case can move forward in court.

It gives the prosecutors more ammunition.

But it doesn't explain anything.

These are the sort of news stories that give me agita. I'm not sure if it's voyeurism or simply a need to have things explained, to have them wrapped up neatly. Or maybe it's because the involvement of a child in crime always puts the mother in me on edge, makes me desperate for information to better protect my own child. 

I know I watched the search for Lana Bailey from afar, hoping that she'd be found alive (even while knowing, with a sinking heart, that it was unlikely).

We see children killed every day, but still we don't like to think of it happening. We can't wrap our heads around it.

And when it happens, we want answers.

Only none are coming out here.

Kyle Flack was arrested last week after the bodies of Lana's mother, 21-year-old Kaylie Bailey, and her friend, 30-year-old Andrew Stout, were found along with that of Stout's roommate, 31-year-old Steven White. But cops refuse to share a motive. They won't even discuss how Flack is connected to the three adults who he allegedly murdered at Stout's eastern Kansas farm.

One of White's relatives surmised drugs were involved in the murders, but the cops won't comment. All that is known about Flack is that he spent time in prison for attempted murder, but he was released in 2009. Since then he seems to have kept his nose clean -- or at least stayed out of jail.

So what gives? Why no motive? Why no connection?

And why has a guy who spent four years in jail on attempted murder for shooting his boss on the day he was fired allegedly escalated to murdering four innocent people, including a helpless child?

There's only one thing we really know for sure: a monster killed that little girl. And that monster must pay.

Have you been following the search for Lana Bailey? What do you think happened here?

child abuse, crime, death

I hope that baby killer gets what's coming to him! Yet another violent offender released back into society and a baby and her family pays the price.

No I haven't been following the story but really he killed other people and he got outb of jail really.What is matter with our justice system,you spend more time in jail for robbery than murder. Wake up stupids once a killer always a killer once a rapist always a rapist,and on and on.They have more rights than innocent people do already. Really ac our elders don't have that free at it. Cable tv, computers privileges wild it really don't sound like a bad place and three meals aday homeless people don't get.I'm so fed up with them treating criminal with more respect than the victim also they get free counseling. Wild wake up stupid again I say this oh also women who are pregnant can give birth in jail and raise there child in there too.OMG!!!! This is my opinion and I have a right to it.

This is in response to Liz549, the guy wasn't released from prison after murdering people. It says above that he spent four years in prison for attempted murder on his boss.. which yes isn't much better when the intent to kill was already there. This story is a little bit closer to home since I live in a neighboring state and have some family that do live in Kansas. This lowlife for some reason, police haven't said yet. Attacked and killed three adults that we had known of, until today no one knew for sure what had happened to the baby. As far as how criminals are treated in prison I am not sure what state would be referring to that gives them all those things you listed. My kids dad is serving some time in a LA facility does not get to watch cable or internet access that doesn't have to do with tests. And in oklahoma infants,children are definitely not allowed to live in any jail. I have known two women in the past year who had to serve time in county that went in pregnant. One was in for three weeks and was between 7 and 8 months and didn't make it out with her baby surviving. The other one was in for about two months and had been 6 months when she went in and also had lost that baby due to other women beating her. From what I have learned here, women who have been incarcerated for long sentences and don't get to see their children do not like for anyone to "rub it in their face that they will get to raise their babies" so take it upon themselves to kill those chances.

Kyle Flack is sub-human. I lived in Ottawa, where this happened, off and on throughout my teenage years through my early 20's. I now live just a town away. Unfortunately, my niece had dated this scum back when he first got out of prison years ago. He was in there for shooting his boss 5 times. His boss didn't die at that time, thankfully, and so Kyle was charged with 2nd degree attempted murder. I can tell you that when I realized just who my niece was dating, I had the presence of mind to sit down and talk to her and tell her that I thought she was making a mistake. I would also like to say that I do realize that there are people in this world who have been in jail, at one time or another, and they have turned their lives around, and that's great and all, but it also has something to do with WHY they're in prison in the first place. Kyle wasn't one of those people. He was hell-bent on destruction, and he destroyed a lot of families by his actions, but I am hoping that the families, and the communities, will work together to heal, and have some closure. One more quick note: Kyle is not remorseful. Not one bit. I thought with his first court appearance, I might have seen something, somewhere in him, that showed some type of remorse, not that it would honestly matter - but I didn't.
