SUMPTER TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WXYZ) — The man wanted in connection to the murders of four people in Sumpter Township has turned himself in.

Raymond Lee Bailey, 37, turned himself in to the Bay County Sheriff's Office Sunday evening, according to the Sumpter Township Police Department. He will be transferred back to Wayne County at some point in the near future.

On Aug. 15, Sumpter Township Police responded to a quadruple homicide scene at a home in the 24000 block of Martinsville.

Officers found two men and two women, all in their 30's dead of apparent gunshot wounds.

Detectives identified Bailey, of Sumpter Township, the ex-boyfriend of one of the women, as a suspect and obtained information that he had fled north.

A short time later, detectives were made aware that he had allegedly confessed to the killings to several people via telephone and texts, according to authorities.

Detectives were able to begin tracking him as he fled North and located his vehicle abandoned near Bay City.

A GoFundMe page has been set up for the funeral expenses.
