michael cade, olathe kansas murder, kidnapping and rapistThe Investigation Discovery Channel is featuring this case on an episode of Ice Cold Killers to air this Tuesday, Feb 23, 2016 at 7pm CT.

Michael Cade, 21 at the time, turned the small town of Olathe, Kansas upside down with his actions the night of January 28th, 1983.

He’s a monster. – Paul Duffield

Cade has said he randomly selected John and Carole Duffield’s Olathe home to break into and reign terror on. He entered the home with a two-pound hammer, beating 15 year-old Paul Duffield and leaving him for dead, before moving on to his next child victim. He beat 12 year-old Janelle to death with the same hammer. Kelly, the Duffield’s 17 year-old daughter was forced from the house by Cade. Her body was found 10 days later at Frisco Lake. She had been raped, beaten and left to die alone, in a drainage ditch.

Cade was convicted of two counts of first-degree murder and one count each of rape, aggravated kidnapping, aggravated battery, aggravated burglary and robbery.

Under today’s laws, Cade would be eligible for the death penalty. However, with no death penalty in Kansas at the time, he was sentenced to life and eligible for parole. His first opportunity came in 1998 and again in 2008. Denied both times, with campaigns against his release being led by the Duffield family. His next chance happens in 2018.

John Duffield passed in 1998 and Carole in 2011. All deceased members of the Duffields are laid to rest at Oak Lawn Memorial Gardens in Olathe, KS.
