On Tuesday afternoon, a body was discovered in the 9500 block of Sunflower Road.
The locations are about 2.5 miles apart. The sheriff’s office has not released any details about the age or gender of the person found Tuesday.
The sheriff’s office has not said if either case is connected to the disappearance of an Olathe man, 22-year-old Brad Cook, whose motorcycle was found in De Soto on Oct. 21. The clothing with the body found Tuesday matched the description of what Cook was wearing, a family friend has said.
Deputies are investigating both cases as unattended deaths, according to a sheriff’s office spokesman.
