Police on Wednesday identified a man found shot to death in the back yard of a house at 67th Street and Walrond Avenue as Lonell Boyles, 20, of Kansas City.
A resident of the neighborhood notified police about the body about 1 p.m. Tuesday.
Two other homicides occurred at or near the same house earlier this year. A drive-by shooting in May killed 3-year-old Amorian S.L. Hale. His family moved from the house a short time afterward.
A fatal shooting occurred in the 6800 block of Walrond Avenue in March.
Neither shooting is connected to the slaying discovered Tuesday.
