INMAN, KS – A fatal incident took place over the weekend at a motocross event in Kansas. During the event, a pregnant woman and her two young sons were discovered dead in their camper. Authorities suspect that their untimely deaths were a result of carbon monoxide poisoning. The McPherson County Sheriff’s Office responded to the distress call at the Inman Motocross track, where the Kansas Motocross Championship Series was being held.
Upon arrival, emergency services from the Inman Fire Department and McPherson EMS confirmed the unfortunate demise of the three individuals. The victims were later identified as Felicia Richey, who was expecting, and her two sons, Tison and Bentley. The ages of the boys were not immediately disclosed.
The family is survived by Jason Richey, a professional motocross racer, and a three-year-old son. A GoFundMe account was set up by a close family friend to support Jason and his toddler son during this devastating period. The account revealed that Jason and Felicia were also expecting another child.
In 2019, Jason Richey was interviewed by reporters after losing all his gear in a fire. The recent tragedy in the camper led to the postponement of the eighth round of the Kansas Motocross Championship Series, hosted by Inman Motocross Inc. The organization expressed their condolences on Facebook, urging everyone to cherish their loved ones.
As of Tuesday morning, the GoFundMe page had collected over $40,000 for the bereaved family. The cause of the deaths is still under investigation by the authorities.
