Jun 21, 2017, 4:28 PM

CALDWELL, IDAHO — Deputies are searching for a Utah man who may be able to shed some light on the death of three women on his property in Idaho.

Marv Dashiell, with the Canyon County Sheriff’s Office, said they found the three bodies underneath a tarp in the backyard after a concerned family members asked deputies to check the home.

“It has been confirmed the deceased are all females and all died of an apparent single gunshot wound,” Dashiell told reporters. “The three deceased females appear to be consistent in age and physical stature as the females that were reported to have been living at the location.”

He said the women’s ages range from teens to mid 50s. They are still working to confirm their identities.

Deputies also found several animals on the property including a dead bird and dead dogs. They are believed to pets. It is unclear at this time how they died.

Dashiell said they are now looking for the owner of the home, Gerald Michael “Mike” Bullinger. He’s described as 6’1″ with gray hair and brown eyes. The man was last seen ten days ago in Ogden and may be driving a white 2007 Ford Focus with Utah plates reading 129 UMP.

Bullinger is considered armed and dangerous. If you see him, deputies ask that you immediately call local law enforcement.
