Arrowhead Homicide: Police Investigate Man’s DeathBy: Lindsay McCane - December 2, 2013
During Sunday’s game, played by the Kansas City Chiefs and the Denver Broncos, a man was killed during an altercation in the parking lot of Arrowhead Stadium. Police confirmed the man’s death and say they are treating his death as a homicide.
So far, no arrests have been made, but police are still continuing their investigation to find out who the killer is and the motive behind the murder. They currently have three persons-of-interest in custody.
Eye witnesses described the incident to police saying that a father and his son walked to their car and noticed a man in their vehicle going through their belongings. A struggle took place, leaving the man lying unconscious on the ground. Paramedics arrived and took the man to the hospital where he later died. His name has not been released, and neither has the suspects.
“Talking to several witnesses that were out here in the parking lots, there was an individual who came back to his vehicle, saw someone inside the vehicle that did not belong. A struggle ensued between the two. That’s when the individual collapsed,” Kansas City police spokesman, Darin Snapp, said.
The main focus right now is determining the man’s cause of death. “We don’t know if the person had a health condition, had a heart attack. We don’t know,” Snapp said. “We’re going to investigate this as a homicide until we hear differently. Right now it’s a suspicious death but we are going to investigate it as a homicide.”
The men in custody are not being treated as suspects until the autopsy reveals the man’s cause of death. “Right now they’re persons of interest,” Snapp said. “Like I said, until we find out exactly how this person passed away, we’re going to investigate it as a homicide. They’re not suspects right now until we find out exactly what happened.”
