A retired pilot who was busted in a love triangle, is on the lam after his wife, mistress and her teen daughter were discovered dead.

Police are on the hunt for 60-year-old Gerald Michael Bullinger after finding the bodies of three females wrapped in plastic and packed in a shed on June 19th on his farm in Caldwell, Idaho.

Bullinger is a person of interest in the triple homicide and was charged with neglecting to report the deaths of his wife, Cheryl Baker, his girlfriend Nadja Medley, and her 14-year-old daughter Payton, KTVB reported.

Bullinger, a pilot, was said to be in the process of moving to the property with his 57-year-old wife, Cheryl Baker (pictured). The recently retired teacher is still missing

Nadja and Payton Medley went missing on June 8th — and were preparing to move in with the former airline pilot mere weeks before they disappeared, according to Canyon County Sheriff’s officers.

In March, Medley announced the big change on social media, saying, “WE’RE MOVING. That’s right. A new home and Mike, Payton Medley and I are moving in together. Boise, here we come!’

However, Medley, who had recently retired from her teaching position, did not know that her boyfriend was married.

The three women are believed to have been slain with a single gunshot, The Statesman reported. They were dead for approximately two weeks before police recovered their bodies.

The retired pilot was last seen on June 12th near Ogden, Utah.

Bullinger purchased the farm with his wife in May.
