Kansas City police on Wednesday are investigating a possible homicide after city workers found a woman’s body near 33rd Terrace and Oakley Avenue.
The workers were cleaning up debris in the desolate area, which is surrounded by woods, when they discovered the body about 12:25 p.m. behind a vacant house. The house is the only structure at the intersection. The area is apparently used as an illegal dumping ground. A Google Map search reveals piles of abandoned trash and tires at the intersection and to the east.
