    MO - Four similar homicides on Indian Creek Trail in Kansas City Aug 2016 *arrest*

    Just yesterday, 5/18/2017, the very beloved co-owner of a popular bar, Coach's, was found murdered along the Indian Creek Trail (a walking and bicycling trail) in south Kansas City. By all accounts, the victim, Mike Darby, was the nicest guy you could ever hope to meet and would give you the shirt off his back. He was walking his two dogs, which were found alive circling his body.

    Two and a half months ago, David Lenox, 66, by all accounts a beloved recent retiree, was killed just feet from that location, also walking his dogs. http://www.kansascity.com/news/local...137145698.html

    Last August, John Palmer, 54, was found dead on the same walking trail

    It's hard to believe the motive was robbery, at least for me?

    Here's an article saying "the trail is still a safe place." It doesn't mention Palmer.

    Sorry if this should go somewhere else on the board.

    Whoa, wait...there's ANOTHER one. This makes four. I didn't know about this one, but one of the local tv stations just came out with a story (it's on my phone not on their website yet) also listing this one from April 2017: http://www.kansascity.com/news/local...143715344.html

    Here's another local news station connecting all four: http://fox4kc.com/2017/05/19/kansas-...n-creek-trail/

    Extremely suspicious. Hard to ignore what seems like a pattern here. Surprised this isn't getting more attention.

    I feel bad for the dogs who had to see their companion/family member murdered. Lenox was shot. How were the other victims killed? Is the method the same?

    I don't think they have said how the other 3 were killed. Lenox had just stepped out his door even though it was very close to the walking trail. Lenox on particular makes me think targeted sniper type thing.

    Kansas City police highlight ‘obvious similarities’ in four killings along Indian Creek Trail

    Dating back to last August, 55-year-old John Palmer was killed and found near E. Bannister and Lydia Avenue. On February 27, 66-year-old David Lenox was found killed at 9939 Walnut Street, a reward for information leading to his killer's arrest was established and has been increased in the past month.

    Excelsior Springs man Timothy Rice, 57, was found dead in Minor Park at 1601 E. Red Bridge Road on April 4. On Thursday, Coach's Bar and Grill co-owner Mike Darby, 61, was found dead on the trail at 373 W. 101 Terrace.

    Wow - scary, to be sure (my husband and I frequent our own local walking/trails), I do have a question:

    Was there any evidence this poor man's two dogs tried to jump and attack whoever did this?

    Or was he shot from a distance before his dogs could do anything to protect their owner?
