Mystery as teen found dead inside her car just days after boyfriend’s body discovered next to abandoned church

MYSTERY surrounds the death of a teen girl discovered inside her car, days after her boyfriend's remains were found near an abandoned church.

Investigators in Wichita are puzzled about the double fatalities of Kaylah Blackmon, 18, and Michael Beasley, 17.

In a tweet on February 2, cops said they were seeking "help locating 18-year-old Kaylah Blackmon of Wichita and her grey 2005 Ford Escape with Kansas license plate 566NPK in connection to a homicide investigation.

"Call 911 immediately with any information."

Before leaving home at about 5.30pm last Sunday, Kaylah had told family she would return straight away to help bathe her newborn sister, reported the Wichita Eagle.

But, she didn't return, and cops were called to the body of her boyfriend, Michael, on Monday morning, next to an abandoned church at Ninth and Ash.

Michael had been discovered unresponsive on the ground, prompting a concerned passerby to see whether he needed help.

First responders said he had died at the scene.

Then, on Thursday, February 4, a Wichita police lieutenant patrolling a parking lot found Kaylah dead in the missing Ford Escape.

In a statement, cops said her remains were discovered near an apartment complex in the 500 block of West 27th Street South.

“I will forever have a hole in my heart,” Kaylah’s devastated mom, Angelia Stephen, told the Wichita Eagle.

She added: “But [I] will tell lots of stories to keep her memory alive so her baby sister will know who she was.”

An aunt added: “She was just a typical, funny kid growing up, cracking jokes, spending time with family.”

Police have not released details about how Kaylah or Michael died.

Anyone with additional information can call WPD detectives via 316-268-4407 or Crime Stoppers at 316-267-2111.
