Transgender woman guns down ‘parents’ in Utah home, sparking massive manhunt: police

A transgender woman allegedly gunned down her parents inside their Utah home Tuesday night, according to police and reports.

Mia Bailey — whom police said wears wigs and changes her appearance frequently — was cornered and arrested Wednesday after an extensive manhunt that spanned several hours.

Cops warned she was to be considered “armed and dangerous” while she was still on the loose.


“We have the suspect in custody. Everyone is safe. No one else was injured.”

Bailey, 28, was immediately identified as the primary suspect after gunfire erupted around 7 p.m. in a home in Washington in southwest Utah near the Arizona border.

The bodies of a woman and man, both suffering gunshot wounds, were found in the living room, according to Washington City Police.

Investigators launched a manhunt for the suspect, who fled in a yellow Kia Soul.

After several hours on the loose, Bailey was cornered in the St. George neighborhood, roughly 7 miles from the home where the murders took place.


Although police did not make clear the relationship between the deceased and Bailey, records show that Bailey shared the home where the slaughter occurred with a Joseph and Gail Bailey, ages 70 and 69.

Gail’s brother took to social media to confirm that the pair’s killer was their child.

“My sister Gail and her husband Blue Bailey were shot dead tonight. I’m numb,” he wrote in a post seen by the Daily Mail.

“Their own son killed them. My poor mother has lost 3 of her 5 children. You always think it only happens to someone else. Give your brother or sister a call. Stay in touch.”

Few details about the killings — including a motive — have been revealed.
