I guess that we are not going to see a “CSI Kansas City” anytime soon. Police and medical examiners have had to change their finding of natural death of Anthony Crockett when the funeral home noted that he had three bullet holes in his head.
It turns about that detectives never visited the home to inspect the body and simply took a paramedics view that he appeared to die naturally after prescription containers for high blood pressure, high cholesterol and diabetes in the home.
This is the second time in 17 months that a Kansas City funeral home returned a homicide victim’s body that was previously ruled as a natural caused death. Previously, a woman, Lorraine Grayson, 77, was beaten and sexually assaulted in her home, but listed as a natural death. A neighbor has now been charged.
The assumption that that the police will now start a homicide investigation for Mr. Crockett, though there remains a possible finding of lead poisoning.
