Kansas City Police Investigation Cont'd After Dead Body Burned

A horrific KCMO South side crime has sparked an even greater need for cooperation with police.

Here's some of the story and community reaction .  ..

On Tuesday, police identified the victim as a 32-year-old Timothy Grigsby.

This continued violence is also a big focus of community activists and several groups that just held peace rallies this past weekend.

“We've got to keep working because something is gonna give and make it work,” activist Teresa Perry said.

A day before the city's latest homicide, Perry held a peace walk on Prospect Avenue calling for an end to violence in Kansas City.

"When you kill, look up. It's gonna effect; it’s a trickle-down effect. It affects their family. It affects their community. It affects the world." Perry said.

Her group passed out more than 200 booklets full of resources that people may not know about, from help with utilities to help with mental health and conflict resolution.

As always . . . 

"If you have any information please call the Homicide unit at 234-5043. If you wish to remain anonymous you can call the TIPS hotline at 474-TIPS, with up to a $25,000 reward for an arrest in this case."
