The family of Nadja and Payton Medley have released a statement following the release of their names as the second and third victims of a triple homicide in Caldwell.

It reads:

""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 Canyon County Coroner’s Office positively identified them as 48-year-old Nadja Medley and 14-year-old Payton Medley Tuesday. The third victim, Cheryl Baker, age 56, also of Ogden, was identified on June 30th through dental records.

A federal warrant has been issued for Gerald "Mike" Bullinger, who authorities believe shot and killed all three women.

The felony homicide warrant is in addition to the outstanding felony warrant for failure to report a death. Both are no bond, nationwide extradition warrants.
