Woman stabbed in Olathe early Saturday morning; man dies after jumping off ramp

A man suspected of stabbing a woman Saturday morning in Olathe jumped to his death from an elevated ramp above a highway in Lenexa.

Police found the injured woman about 6:45 a.m. in the 1900 block of East Stratford Road. She was taken to a hospital in stable condition.

The suspect left the scene prior to their arrival, police said. He was later located by Lenexa police about 7:20 a.m. on the flyover ramp from eastbound Kansas 10 to northbound Interstate 435.

As officers arrived, the man, police said, jumped off the elevated ramp to the highway below. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Westbound Kansas 10 was closed at the ramp from Interstate 435 during the investigation then reopened.
