Kansas City police on Tuesday identified a man who died Sunday night during a struggle with a relative as Michael Tolliver, 48, of Kansas City.
Officers were called to the home Tolliver shared with his mother in the 13100 block of East 53rd Terrace about 11:45 p.m. Sunday. Witnesses said Tolliver had punched a relative, who punched back, then the two wrestled on the floor. Relatives noticed Tolliver had stopped breathing, police said.
Police are awaiting autopsy results to determine the cause and manner of death.
