Family of Wellington woman killed: ‘It will never stop hurting’


A life gone too soon. A Kansas family is remembering a young woman after she was found dead on Thursday. 

“My sister was an amazing person,” said Autumn Craft.

Sierra Craft-McGee, 26, was a mother of three, a daughter, a sibling of five and so much more according to her sisters Autumn Craft and Leah McGee.

“She was a light. She always had a joke or a laugh or a memory that would identify with anybody,” Autumn said. “She would give anything to anyone she loved no matter what it took out of her.”

Autumn, 28, and Leah, 25, said they’ll always remember Sierra for her motherly instincts and skills in the kitchen.

“The best cook out of anyone I have ever met in my life,” Leah said.

Wellington police said they received a call to a home in the 1000 block of S. F St. on May 24. Once on scene, officials said they found Sierra’s body inside the house.

“I don’t have enough words in my vocabulary to describe the void that this has caused for all of us.  Loss is just an understatement for how important she was for the unity of our family,” Autumn said. 

“I will never get over this. It will never stop hurting,” Leah said.

The sisters said they want people to remember Sierra by her kindness and willing to help others.

“She would befriend anybody and lift them up and do anything in her power to make them feel like they were something,” Autumn explained.

Bradley Aue, 34, was arrested on suspicion of second-degree murder. Wellington police said they couldn’t comment any further on the case while the investigation is pending. Police told KSN the case has been turned over to the Sumner County attorney.

KSN reached out to the attorney on Wednesday to get an update on the case and if formal charges will be brought against Aue. No one from the attorney’s office could answer KSN’s questions,

Funeral arrangements for Sierra are scheduled for Thursday, May 31.
