$11K Reward Offered for Info on SE Kan. Murders

KSAL StaffOctober 16, 2013

There’s been a boost in the reward for information on a man being sought in two shooting deaths in southeast Kansas.

The Kansas Bureau of Investigation told The Wichita Eagle (http://bit.ly/1hWqkBk ) the reward for information leading to the arrest of 35-year-old Kevin R. Welsh has been increased to $11,000.

Welsh is not been charged but he is a suspect in the fatal shootings earlier this month of 54-year-old Keith Kalen Kriesel and his wife, 52-year-old Sheila Kriesel. Their 26-year-old daughter was wounded and remains hospitalized.

The KBI says the state earlier provided its $5,000 maximum reward, and private residents and businesses contributed the additional $6,000.

State officials say Welsh is thought to be armed and asks anyone with information to call 911 or 800-572-7463.
