Kaylie Bailey left behind a paper trail of her last day that investigators retraced from her body in Ottawa.
Bank statements, receipts and a Burger King kid’s meal wrapper were among the items investigated by law enforcement in May 2013, according to testimony Thursday at the jury trial of Kyle Flack in Franklin County District Court, 301 S. Main St., Ottawa. The trial began Monday.
Bailey and her daughter, Lana, were among the victims Flack is accused of killing, along with Bailey's boyfriend and his roommate. Prosecutors said the four people were killed at a modular home at 3197 Georgia Road in rural Ottawa between April 20 and May 1, 2013.
Flack, 30, a friend of the three adults, was detained May 8, 2013, as the suspect in their killings. He is charged with capital murder in the deaths of Bailey, 21, and her 18-month-old daughter, Lana. He also is charged with premeditated first-degree murder in the deaths of Andrew Stout, 30, and Steven White, 31, criminal possession of a firearm, and misdemeanor sexual battery against Kaylie Bailey.
On May 1, 2013, Bailey made several stops with Lana before arriving at the Ottawa residence, which was her boyfriend Stout’s home, Tammy Alexander, Franklin County Sheriff’s Office detective, said. Prosecutors argue Bailey and Lana were killed there that day.
After leaving her home in Olathe that morning, Bailey withdrew money from an Olathe bank, then purchased fuel at gas station and finally bought cheeseburgers and a kid’s meal from Burger King in Ottawa.
Two friends of Kaylie who had known her since high school — one working the drive-thru, the other in line behind her — testified that they saw her at the lunch hour on May 1, 2013.
The defense contested that there is no way to prove whether the modular home was her next stop. But 3197 Georgia Road was where her body was found in the master bedroom beside Stout’s body, Alexander said.
Kaylie Bailey was wearing a pink tank top when she was found, Alexander said, which is the same outfit she is wearing in the bank’s surveillance video shown Thursday.
Also identified in the home by investigators was a Jurassic Park-themed kid’s meal wrapper from Burger King, bought by Kaylie for Lana earlier that day, strewn near the garbage cans in the kitchen.
Photographs of the kitchen as it was found when the bodies were found May 6, 2013 were presented Thursday.
Rebecca Vincent Giles, a Johnson County Sheriff’s Office deputy in 2013, testified that she was the first crime scene investigator inside the home. At that time, Lana Bailey was still missing.
In addition to a photo of the garbage cans, a photograph was shown of towels covering the kitchen window. Witnesses who went looking for their friends at the property have testified that towels and sheets were draped on the windows in the days before the bodies were discovered.
Kaylie Bailey’s mother, Lisa Smith, said she last saw her daughter the morning of May 1 at their home in Olathe. She testified Wednesday that her daughter was heading to Stout’s residence in Ottawa, where his friend was expected to look after Lana while Kaylie was at work.
Kaylie Bailey did not show up for work 11 p.m. May 1 as a security guard at American Eagle Outfitters Distribution, her former boss testified Thursday.
The prosecution said physical evidence will begin to be presented Friday 9 a.m. in Franklin County District Court.
