In 2020 amid a historic pandemic and racially charged violence erupting throughout the nation, Kansas City suffered more murders than at any other time in our history.

Now . . .


There's nobody left to blame but ourselves . . .

Prez Trump is out of office.

BILLIONS in stimmy have been awarded.

And Mayor Q is now attempting to walk a tightrope in pushing for higher police salaries whilst trying to loot the KCPD budget. 

Yet, all of this context is prologue as we notice the body count quickly adding up despite so much political intrigue.

This is the 3rd homicide in KCMO is less than 48 hours. 

As of this writing, this murder pushes us past numbers reported at this date in 2020. 

Here's the report . . .

Homicide Investigation - Victim Dropped off at St. Luke's

This afternoon about 12:50pm officers were dispatched to St Luke's (Plaza) Hospital on an injured victim that was brought to the hospital by private vehicle.  The victim was initially thought to be shot based on information provided by the driver.  However during the course of medical treatment there was not a conclusive diagnosis of the cause of the injuries.

A short time later the victim was declared deceased by medical staff.  The location where the driver picked up the victim is still being investigated by detectives with the help of the driver.  The location where the victim was injured is still under investigation at this time as well.

The deceased victim is a juvenile teen male. Detectives are working at this time to identify the victim and contact next of kin to get a better idea of the location and what the victim was doing prior to being injured.  Detectives will further be working with the medical examiner to determine the cause of death.

There is not a lot known at this time but detectives are working hard to gather information. If anyone has any information they think might be helpful they are asked to contact the Homicide Unit directly at 816-234-5043 or the TIPS Hotline anonymously at 816-474-TIPS. A reward of up to $25,000 is available for information leading to an arrest in this case. 


This quote from a community leader is worthwhile inasmuch as it contains a great deal of data about the current violence spike . . .

"We are currently on the trajectory of 2020," AdHoc Group Against Crime's Chief Operating Officer Branden Mims said. "I've been talking about this. You're talking about 49 plus non-fatal shootings in January and February. We had 42 non-fatal shootings alone in January, and when we say non-fatals, we're talking about those individuals who are here but did not pass away. The only difference between a non-fatal shooting and a homicide is how close you were to the hospital."

"Mims said the city needs more social services, more community investment, and more people lifted out of poverty."
