    just what??

    her facebook indicates the death of the two childrens' younger sister at 6 months of age. This young woman and her two sons were apparently recent transplants to the KC MO area in June.

    The look on her face in the mugshot at the linked opening article is well, offputting, to say the least. I wonder if there was some issue at play here that sent this young woman's life in a fast spiral downward.

    An article about her baby girl's death last February. Sounds like she is distraught to distraction over the loss of her baby. Seems like she needs help and not necessarily to be dealt with harshly by the criminal justice system.

    Death was ruled positional asphyxia, accidental:

    There are all kinds of charitable organizations that probably could have assisted this young mother and her 2 children, in the Kansas City area. I am sure all she would have had to do was gone to a church and they would have directed her to the proper place, or helped her themselves.

    There is no excuse for things like this to happen. Especially if her boyfriend is of sound mind.

    imho

    The kids had no shoes. Living in a a crate in a cave filled with trash and debris while eating dry Ramen soup.

    While she was probably on meth. So I may have to disagree with you on this one.

    Hey law enforcement. Can you please list a map of all of these hidden caves and let search parties scour all of them for all of the missing people who still have not been found.

    I would hate to hear that these caves are known and used by all kinds of abductors while we are just finding out about these caves in which some have electricity, etc.

    So I was very curious to find out exactly where this "cave" is, since I don't picture Kansas City with any kind of "caves" - usually related to landscape that is very hilly or even mountainous.

    It sounds like where the children were found is the SubTropolis - a business park made out of caverns left over from mining in the 18 and 1900's. Businesses and storage units, with florescent lighting, have been built out of the cave structure, and it is more like a climate controlled storage facility (always 70 degrees, year round) than what I pictured as a "cave". So apparently some of the businesses are sketchy, like the chop shop LE was investigating, and some are upright, respectable businesses in the complex. It seems more like a huge Walmart storage facility or Boeing manufacturing plant than what most people would consider a "cave". Like, a basement is a cave I guess, technically.

    When I think of a cave, I think of something dark and clammy, with stalagmites and stalagtites, and a constant drip drip drip sound that you have to access by crawling around rocky openings.

    Subtropolis. I guess you learn something new every day, every case.

    This is sickening. Those poor little boys. Who would treat a precious child like this??? I'm just sick.

    The caves were dug out many years ago for storage of many products that needed cooling. There are websites that explain the caves.

    Many things come up when you search Kansas City cave on east 23rd!

    I forgot to add they were built under the limestone rock!

    As I understand it, the place is huge. The "bunker" sounds like it was a wooden shipping crate, about the size of the average dumpster. inside were benches from cars and a few other things, and one side was removed to create an open door.

    apparently this thing is HUGE

    Developed by the Kansas City Chiefs founders Lamar Hunt in the 1960s near Worlds of Fun, SubTropolis is the world's largest underground business complex, more than 55 million square feet of space, or about 2 square miles.
    Pillsbury, Ford and Russell Stover were three of the first tenants. Today, it has more than 50 businesses and 1,500 workers.
