Platte County authorities have identified a 56-year-old man found dead inside a residence on Tuesday as Darrell W. Brooks.
Sheriff’s deputies were summoned twice to the residence in the 18000 block of Interurban Road, just northeast of Platte City. The first call was about 2 p.m., and the second was received about an hour later. On the second call, deputies found the body.
The cause of death has not been released. A 59-year-old man was being questioned but no criminal charges had been filed Wednesday.
Authorities are continuing their investigation.
