They were tragically found deceased in their camper at the Inman Motocross track in Kansas, and authorities are investigating carbon monoxide poisoning as the likely cause.
Felecia was a loving mother, devoted to her children and family. She had a smile that could light up a room and a heart that welcomed everyone. Her sons, Tysin and Bentley, inherited their mother’s vibrant spirit and zest for life. Tysin was passionate about nature, always eager for the next camping trip or outdoor adventure.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made to organizations focused on carbon monoxide safety awareness, in hopes that other families can be spared from such a devastating tragedy.

Who was Felecia Richey? What happened?
A pregnant woman, Felecia Richey, 31, and her two sons, Tysin, 13, and Bentley, 10, were found dead in their trailer at the Inman Motocross track in Kansas. Authorities suspect carbon monoxide poisoning as the cause. The McPherson County Sheriff’s Office is leading an ongoing investigation, assisted by the Inman Police Department. The tragic incident has deeply affected the family and the local community.
What is carbon monoxide poisoning?
Carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning occurs when individuals inhale a dangerous amount of this odorless, colorless gas. According to health agencies like the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the risk is particularly acute for those who are asleep or under the influence, as they may succumb to the gas before experiencing typical symptoms such as headaches, dizziness, or memory loss.
The Mayo Clinic elaborates that when CO accumulates in your bloodstream, it can lead to fatal or severe tissue damage. This is because red blood cells, which usually carry oxygen, end up transporting carbon monoxide instead when CO levels are high, particularly in confined spaces.
It’s crucial to note that CO is generated when burning fuels like gas, wood, propane, or charcoal. Poorly ventilated appliances and engines can allow this gas to build up to lethal levels.
If exposed, immediate access to fresh air is essential, followed by urgent medical attention.
