The Kansas City, Kan., Board of Public Utilities issued a statement Wednesday explaining why it took more than 11 hours to respond to a downed power line at Rosedale Park during a June 15 storm. That fallen line electrocuted Nicholas Moeder, 27, of Shawnee early June 16 as he played disc golf in the dark with a friend.
