One of the three people found dead earlier this month at a Caldwell home has been positively identified.

The Canyon County Sheriff's Office says one of the victims is Cheryl Baker, 56, of Ogden, Utah. She was identified through dental records.

The bodies of the three women were found June 19 and authorities are conducting a nationwide manhunt for Mike Bullinger, the person of interest in the case. Bullinger and Baker were married, according to family and friends.

Authorities believe the women may have been dead as long as two weeks before their decomposing bodies were discovered under a sheet near a shed.

Officials are working to make a positive ID of the other two victims, but they face challenges. Canyon County Coroner, Vicki DeGeus, says it could be weeks before we get answers.

Baker's family released this statement to KBOI 2News following the identification:

“Our family is both saddened and relieved at the confirmation of Cheryl's death. We are grateful for a small bit of information, so we can focus on celebrating her life and remembering all the good she has brought to the world. The frustration of unanswered questions will continue over time, but for the moment we will gather friends and relatives to remember and celebrate her life. Thanks to all the well wishes, we grieve together and look for peace and further resolution of these events.”
