IOLA, Kan. (KAKE) -
Authorities are asking for the public's help after a man and his daughter were found dead in their eastern Kansas home.
The Kansas Bureau of Investigation said Iola police responded just after 5 p.m. Thursday to a report of two people found dead at 114 South Kentucky. The Iola Police Department then requested the KBI's assistance.
The victims were identified as 36-year-old Molly Wilson and her father, 69-year-old John Tadlock. The KBI has not said how they died, but their deaths are being investigated as homicides.
The KBI said in a news released that 38-year-old Ben Converse is a person of interest in the two deaths and they're working to locate him. He stands 5-foot-9 and weighs 175 pounds. He may be driving a maroon 2011 Kia Forte with Kansas plate 509 KZS.
Converse could be in the Oklahoma area. Anyone who sees him should not approach him and call 911 right away. Those with information can also call Iola police at (620) 365-4960.
Wilson's Facebook profile photo shows her with Converse. In a December 21 post, she said "you will get so caught up in all your love affairs and when you do I hope it DESTROYS YOUR LIFE like your trying to do ours."
Kansas Department of Corrections records show Converse has prior burglary and drug convictions.
Thoughts? As of this posting date (12/28/2018), Converse is only wanted for questioning. That could always change later based on how these things usually work, but for the time being it's imperative to locate him to get the bottom of getting justice in this very tragic case.
