Authorities in Idaho have a felony warrant out for the arrest of 60-year-old Gerald "Mike" Bullinger after finding the bodies of three women covered up in a shed on his property in Canyon County, Idaho.
Canyon County Sheriff's office spokesman Joe Decker told CNN that when authorities discovered the bodies on June 19 they were already badly decomposed and could have been there for several weeks before they were discovered.
"We discovered the people during a welfare check. Based on the decomposition, it has taken us 10 days to identify one of the victims and we had to do that through dental records," Decker told CNN.
Friday afternoon, the Canyon County Coroner's Office identified one of the bodies as Bullinger's wife, Cheryl Baker. In a news conference, Canyon County Sheriff Chief Deputy Marv Dashiell said the other two bodies "appear to be similar in age and physical stature" of two females who had been living at the home. All three, according to Decker, appear to have died from a single gunshot wound.
Bullinger, who is wanted for failing to report the deaths of the three women, was last seen on June 11 in Ogden, Utah. The Salt Lake City division of the FBI told CNN their office his working with authorities in Idaho to track Bullinger down.
