The Disappearance of Megan Foglesong

21 year-old Megan Foglesong was last seen in Alden, Kansas, sometime in late November or early December 2015. According to family members, Megan lived a ‘spontaneous lifestyle’ and it was common for her to be out of touch every once in a while. Due to this, she was not reported missing until February 10th, 2016—over two months after she was last seen.

Prior to vanishing, Megan was in a relationship with an older man named David Madden. The two had a very tumultuous relationship; Madden was both physically and emotionally abusive. In fact, Megan had previously told her friends that if she ever went missing, Madden would likely be the one responsible. Megan and Madden apparently broke up several times, but kept reconciling. It appeared that the two were together shortly before Megan’s disappearance. Megan’s last Facebook activity was on November 30th, 2015, when she messaged a friend and mentioned that she was at Madden’s house. The following day, Madden told a local sheriff that he caught Megan stealing from him and that they got into an argument and she left.

Another seemingly disturbing aspect about Megan and Madden’s relationship is that Madden was previously in a relationship with Megan’s mother, Pam Lewis. Madden apparently began to pursue Megan while he was still dating Pam. Despite this, Pam and Madden still seemed to be on friendly terms after their breakup. After Megan was finally reported missing, Madden told Pam that Megan left for Colorado with one of his friends. Pam does not think that Madden is responsible for Megan’s disappearance; she believes that his unidentified friend is to blame.

In April 2019, David Madden found himself under fire yet again. He reportedly shot two officers that day--one of them was Rice County Undersheriff Chad Murphy and the other was Deputy Bryant Evans. The two were wounded in two separate shootings the same day. Madden was an immediate suspect and he fled from Alden to Raymond, where his father lived. Police followed him there, and when they entered the home they found both Madden and his father shot to death. It's believed that Madden killed his father before turning the gun on himself. 

To this day, Madden is the only known person of interest in Megan's disappearance. She remains missing today. If you have any information about her whereabouts, please contact the Rice County Sheriff’s Office at 620-257-7876
