Update: Victim identified

A Kinsley woman was killed Sunday near Pomona State Park after being bucked off of a mule, according to the Osage County Sheriff’s Office.

The sheriff’s office reported that Faye Ann Dye, 57, of Kinsley, and another person were riding mules in the 23000 block of state Highway 368, when a loud vehicle caused one mule to buck and throw Dye, who was pronounced dead at the scene. The accident was reported about 6 p.m. Dec. 15.

Osage County Sheriff Laurie Dunn released the name of the victim earlier today, having delayed identification pending notification of kin.

K-368 is a one-mile stretch of highway south of Pomona State Park, and intersects the Flint Hills Nature Trail.
