Kansas City police were investigating the cause of a woman’s death after they found her dead inside a home Friday afternoon after responding to an emergency call.
Officers found the woman shortly before 4:30 p.m. inside a home in the 2400 block of East 59th Street.
Police did not immediately release the cause of the woman’s death.
Close to two dozen people were huddled together outside a home near the crime scene nearly five hours after the discovery. Onlookers tried to console each other as they waited for a coroner to remove the woman’s body.
Police officials asked anyone with information about the case to call the TIPS Hotline at 816-474-8477.
