Blue Springs man found dead, relative arrested
BLUE SPRINGS (AP) — Police in a Kansas City suburb say a 77-year-old man is dead and a younger relative has been arrested.
Blue Springs police say the man was found dead Friday at a home where officers were investigating a report of an assault.
No names have been released. Police also have not said how the man died.
When officers arrived at the home, a man told them he was assaulted by his nephew, who then drove away from the home in the deceased man's truck.
Officers searching the home found the elderly man's body.
A Jackson County Sheriff's deputy later spotted the suspect in the truck and arrested him after a chase.
