Funeral Services For Douglas Bailey

My name is Douglas Bailey. My father was recently murdered and we are attempting to raise money for his services and lawyers.  Unfortunately, because of the circumstances, we have been unable to collect any of his personal items or learn anything about his finances without going through lengthy and costly legal processes.

This began as a missing persons case where the supposed wife of my father had gotten into an argument on the road to visit family for Thanksgiving. She claimed to have dropped him off and he had asked her to leave him. Facebook post had been made that he was leaving town.

Peoria Police had investigated the case and had discoved that her story did not seem correct. It was also found that my father and his wife were not legally married. It was much later found that my father was murdered in his Wisconsin home (owned by the girlfriend) days prior. His body had been placed in a small box, stored for several days, and dropped off the side of a road. The girlfriend has been charged with first degree murder.

According to police, the home is owned by the suspect and is in her name alone and we have not been allowed to collect any of my father's documentation to gather information on his assets. We also have not been allowed to collect any of his personal items. The police have informed me that the suspect is now allowed to let others into the home at this time. We are worried at the possibility of my fathers things being disturbed prior to us having access due to the sensitive situation.

I have been informed by police to not go into detail so I will post the most recent news articles about his case.

Any additional funds not used in services/fees will be donated to the Peoria Police Department for solving the case, bringing closure to our family, and investigating all of our suspicions where others would not. Without their help, we would still be wondering what happened to my father.

We really appreciate your help in advance to any who choose to donate to our cause. Our family has been through alot the last few weeks.
