KANSAS CITY 2019 HOMICIDE #17: MAN SHOT DEAD ON MANCHESTER!!!
Not even Kansas City's horrific WINTER TUNDRA can stop the murder count this year.
Even worse . . .
EARLY IN THE YEAR, KANSAS CITY IS NOW OUTPACING RECENT MURDER COUNTS OVER THE PAST 5 YEARS!!!
Again, this is the 17th homicide so far this year compared to 16 at this time last year and the same number the year before that . . . While it's still early in the year, what we find troubling is that the cold winter months have always been relatively peaceful. This year's homicide count suggests a rising trend overall.
