KANSAS CITY 2019 HOMICIDE #90: REPORT OF PEDESTRIAN CRASH SCENE TURNS INTO HOMICIDE INVESTIGATION!!!



Apropos that the latest deadly crime scene involves a vehicular suspicion and a deadly stretch of road.

To wit . . .

KANSAS CITY'S COUNTDOWN TO 100 MURDERS SPEEDS FORWARD WITH AN EARLY MORNING KILLING NEAR THE HIGHWAY OF DEATH!!!

Here's the narrative from police . . .

KCPD said around 12:30 a.m. officers were called to the southbound exit ramp from U.S. Highway 71 to Red Bridge Road on reports of a crash involving a pedestrian.

Police found a man with injuries near a vehicle that was on the shoulder of the road.

EMS got to the scene and declared the man dead.

KCPD said evidence at the scene led investigators to believe the circumstances surrounding the man’s death were suspicious.

Police are counting this is the 90th homicide so far in 2019 compared to 88 at this time last year.

we're ahead of pace and it's a damn shame. A sign that KC is just another American crime capital and not someplace where people want to go to raise a family or start a career. Add this to the cost of living and you've got a real problem keeping residents. Look at the Northland they are still attracting more residents and the only way downtown adds numbers is by using fuzzy math. THAT is the whole problem with KC. We're too good at making great commercials and parties. Building and maintaining a city is another question altogether.

^^^ Whatever you say there, champ. I'm sure you have a very fulfilling home life. That's why you're trolling a b-list blog in KC. Weird, you think you're cleaver but you're kind of a b*tch. Good luck with your "work" here. Weird.

This happened on MoDot’s Highway that they “own” and are responsible for what happens on it why is MODOT not bearing a part of the blame for the shootings that happen on 71?

And if this really is the “Highway of death” as you say- when are you going to call on your readers to “stand up” like you say on your homepage ?

All talk and no action Tony

@11:20am
You're right that the metro area is a great place to live, work, and raise a family, but there are 114 other municipalities in the area and the claim that KCMO itself meets that goal is iffy at best.
Of all the attractive qualities that make the metro as good as it is, KCMO GOVERNMENT isn't a part of that at all.
In fact,it's a detriment to the overall quality of life in the area.
And the fact that it's a national laughingstock,in spite of an occasional puff piece in the New York Times, drags the whole region down.
And the new occupants of the clown car at 12th and Oak aren't going to change a thing.
Sad.

11:20, if you think KCMO is a great place to raise a family, please don’t breed. It wouldn’t be fair to the halfwits you would produce.

It would be interesting to see the rap sheet of the murder victims and if they are employed.
