Police: Body Found near Larkinburg May be Kidnapping Suspect

LARKINBURG, Kan. (AP) — Jackson County officials say a body found near the Nebo State Fishing Lake is believed to be that of a suspect in a Topeka kidnapping in December. The Topeka Capital-Journal reports that a hunter discovered the body Sunday afternoon about one-half mile south of the lake, which is 2 miles southwest of Larkinburg. Jackson County Sheriff Tim Morse said that after further investigation, the deceased person is believed to be a 32-year-old man who was a suspect in the December 23 kidnapping involving a stolen vehicle. Morse says the vehicle was found about three-fourths of a mile from where the body was discovered. The Jackson County Deputy Coroner arrived on the scene and the body was transported to Kansas City for an autopsy. The cause of death remains under investigation.
