Here is a timeline of the events that led up to missing UTA worker Kay Ricks being found dead in Wyoming.

May 10: Authorities said they believe the odd sequence of tragic events started in Centerville, Utah, when a father and son allegedly lured a mother and her four daughters into a basement where they tied them up and beat them.

The five women escaped and the suspects, 51-year-old Flint Harrison and 22-year-old DJ Harrison, went to hideout in Wyoming.

May 12: UTA worker Kay Ricks, and his UTA truck, go missing the same day and from the same area where the Harrisons were last seen near a Best Western in North Salt Lake.

May 14: Flint Harrison surrenders to authorities in Wyoming. His son, DJ, was caught near Pinedale, Wyoming, later that day.

May 17: Missing UTA worker Kay Ricks was found dead about 16 miles south of Kemmerer, Wyoming.

May 18: Family members of the missing UTA worker tell Fox 13 News officials in Wyoming confirm the body found near Kemmerer is that of Ricks. A fingerprint ID leads them to believe, with 99-percent certainty, it is Kay Ricks.

Relatives said they were told Ricks was found with the same clothes he was wearing when he left for work on Thursday, the day he went missing.

That includes his boots, shorts and his shirt with his name tag "Kay."
