KANSAS CITY 2019 HOMICIDE #31: MAN SHOT DEAD NEAR MLK BLVD!!!
An interesting phenomena that has arisen in local crime reporting might provide a solution to the current KCMO petition crisis . . .
Kansas City newsies don't seem to like using the MLK BLVD name when there's a murder around the area formerly known as The Paseo. And therein lies the fix: Keep half signs up for The Paseo installed so that reporters don't have to help blight a swath of Kansas City with news of more killings that remain constant in this part of town no matter the nomenclature.
KMBC: Kansas City Police Investigate After Man Found Dead In Middle of Street
"Officers said the man had been shot in the area of the Paseo and 69th Terrace around 3:15 a.m. Police do not have a description of the suspect. They are asking anyone with information to call the TIPS Hotline at 816-474-8477."
Again, this is the 31st homicide so far this year compared to 31 at this time last year and 26 the year before that . . .
