A pregnant mother and her two young sons were discovered deceased in an RV near a motocross track in Kansas on September 16, according to authorities and a GoFundMe page for the family’s funeral costs.
Deputies from the McPherson County Sheriff’s Office responded to a complaint of “three deceased persons in a camper” at the Inman Motocross track in Inman, according to a Facebook post from the sheriff’s office at the time.
“The Sheriff’s Office and the Inman Police Department are investigating this tragedy,” the sheriff’s office stated.
On social media, the deceased were identified as Felecia Richey, a mother of four, including an unborn child, and two of her sons, Tysin and Bentley.
“What I wouldn’t give to hear Tysin’s giggle again, to see Bentley make that silly goofy eye roll when he laughed at me, and Felicia with her smile that [lit] up our world,” the boys’ grandmother posted on Facebook.
Richey’s friend stated the expectant woman and her sons perished “unexpectedly to carbon monoxide poisoning” in their tent parked near the racetrack.
The pal said that she and her husband, Jason Richey, “were expecting their fourth child.” “Jason (just 26 years old) and his three-year-old son Grayson will face a treacherous journey. We are requesting prayers and donations.”
Richey was a photographer with a “BEAUTIFUL smile and contagious laugh,” according to another Facebook buddy. “She was such a wonderful person and mother.”
A GoFundMe page called “Richey Family Tragedy” was set up to assist Jason Richey with burial expenses for his loved ones.
