Headless body found burned along I-70 in Missouri

The Kansas City Star

Authorities in Lafayette County, Mo., have confirmed today that a man’s body had been found northeast of Concordia, Mo.

The county sheriff’s department said it had received a call about 9 a.m. Wednesday after an area resident out repairing a fence found the body near Davis Road.

Investigators say the nude body, partially burned, belonged to a white or mixed-race male about 6 feet tall and weighing about 200 pounds. The hands and head had been cut off.

An autopsy is being performed this morning at the Jackson County medical examiner’s office, but investigators said there were no identifying tattoos, broken bones or other irregularities to help in identifying the body.

Also working with the sheriff’s department are the Lafayette County Crime Scene Team, the Missouri Highway Patrol’s CRASH Unit and the Missouri Search & Rescue K9 cadaver team.
No other details were immediately available.
