A Facebook page has been founded to gather tips on what happened to a body found in a car submerged in Lake Shawnee east of Topeka. It's already turning up some interesting information about several unsolved missing persons cases. The page is titled "Who Killed Me in Topeka, KS." and was created by Kansas City activist Alonzo Washington. He may be best-known for his efforts to identify a child found Kansas City, Missouri, known for years only as "Precious Doe."
The coroner's office has released little new information about the body recovered from Lake Shawnee on June 11th. There is still no positive identification of the remains, nor any approximate age or gender available. Washington says the new Facebook page has generated information on at least one 1980s murder case in Wisconsin and on a mystery concerning a body that has never been found. Washington hopes to generate more publicity on the mystery at Lake Shawnee by shooting a YouTube video on the case, as well.
