Carnival workers charged with murders of 2 Kansas vendors
3 suspects held in Arkansas
TOPEKA, Kan. — Authorities in Kansas have charged three carnival workers with killing two vendors whose bodies were found in Arkansas days after they disappeared from a fair in Kansas.
The Kansas Attorney General says 52-year-old Kimberly Younger, of McIntosh, Florida, 54-year-old Michael Fowler Jr., of Sarasota, Florida, and 35-year-old Rusty Frasier, of Aransas Pass, Texas, face charges that include capital murder. They are jailed on $1 million bond in Arkansas while awaiting extradition to Kansas.
Two others are charged with obstructing apprehension.
The charges stem from the deaths of Alfred “Sonny” Carpenter and Pauline Carpenter. The Wichita couple was killed in July at the Barton County Fair. Their bodies were later found buried in shallow graves next to a creek bed outside the small community of Natural Dam, Arkansas, in the Ozark National Forest.
