Ex-local woman, husband found dead

FARRELL — A candlelight vigil was scheduled Tuesday evening in Michigan for a former Farrell woman found dead in her home Monday – the victim of an apparent murder-suicide.

Lucinda M. “Cindy” Barlow Bailey, 54, was found at about 11:30 p.m. Monday on the bedroom floor of her home in Inkster, a suburb of Detroit.

According to reports from the Detroit Free Press and several Detroit-area television stations, Inkster police said Mrs. Bailey’s husband, Antonio “Tony” Bailey, apparently stabbed her dozens of times with a butcher knife and then doused his truck with a flammable liquid before setting it on fire. His burned body was found inside the truck.

Authorities had responded to a burglar alarm some 20 minutes to a half-hour earlier but found nothing wrong. They returned after a neighbor reported the garage on fire.

Once the fire was out, they noticed a blood trail that eventually led them to Mrs. Bailey’s body. The gas had also been left on in the house.

Relatives of Tony Bailey told Detroit-area media that the couple had marital problems, separated once and reunited. One of his cousins called Mrs. Bailey “sweet as pie,” and said he didn’t think Tony Bailey was capable of such violence. Another relative called him unstable.

The Baileys both worked for automotive companies. Mrs. Bailey worked for Ford and her husband for GM, according to published reports.

According to Mrs. Bailey’s Facebook page, she is from Farrell. Herald files indicate she has siblings living in the Shenango Valley.

Police told the Detroit Free Press that the Wayne County Medical Examiner’s Office would determine exact causes of death for the Baileys.

Obituary information was unavailable.
