Investigators have confirmed that the victim is 15-year-old Kenlee Wallace of Eureka, Kansas, who was formerly from Kirksville, for KTVO News.

About Kenlee Wallace:

Kenlee Wallace was eager to start her sophomore year as a Tornado after just moving to Eureka. Prior to travelling to Kirksville with her father to spend the week with him and her friends, Kenlee and her family had just returned from a weekend at Great Wolf Lodge.

Kenlee recently joined the Cake Batter Batter crew and enjoyed baking. Kenlee was highlighted by KTVO for her baking abilities while she lived in Kirksville.

With some assistance from her mother, Wallace prepared and frosted cupcakes. She is not only displaying entrepreneurial abilities at a young age; she has also assisted in giving back to her community.

She has been giving to several community organizations since December.

Depending on the month, she alters the donation’s topic and the cupcakes’ flavour. She gave the Adair County SB40 to support Autism Acceptance Month, thus the topic of April held a special place in her heart.

The SB40 has been crucial in the life of the Wallace family, helping to provide assistance for Kenlee’s brother, who has autism spectrum disorder.

Wallace said,

“I like giving to people a lot, when I was younger, I would always share my snacks and stuff, even like even if that person is mean or whatever, I’d always just share and it just feels good.”

Wallace stated that while she doesn’t intend to bake as a career, she would still like to bake in the future for charitable causes.

She was a happy, modest girl with a pleasant aura that made those close to her happy to be around her. Everyone is in shock over her unexpected loss, and the community is helping her family. Condolences are being sent to her loved ones. She has had a significant good influence on people’s lives.
