Berg was found dead in a driveway after police say the man shot her several times. Maisy’s body was found miles away in the Baker Wetlands. Maisy’s father is also dead. It is believed he shot and killed the woman. It’s not yet known why they had been in the 1000 Blk of E900 or what led to the shooting. It is believed after the man shot Berg, he drove to the Baker Wetlands in the woman’s vehicle where he then killed Maisy before killing himself. KSNT News reached out to domestic violence expert, Joyce Grover, with the Kansas Coalition Against Sexual and Domestic Violence. She said incidents that lead to death usually escalate over time. source

“One of the things we like to make sure that people know is that if you feel like things are getting more dangerous, or escalating, then we do encourage you to find someone that you can trust and reach out for help when you can,” Grover said.

Investigators are still looking into the circumstances leading up to the deaths.

A family member of Erin Berg said, “Her smile brightened every room and her daughter Maisy was nothing short of the same. Seeing them together and how they laughed and smiled together was a sight to see.”

Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family and friends at this difficult time.
