    KANSAS CITY, Mo. — After Lamonte McIntyre’s release on Friday after 23 years in prison prompted many questions in the community, including: what’s next? On Monday, Richard Jones met with FOX 4. Jones, or perhaps his mug shot, may be familiar to many from the summer of 2017. He served 17 years from a crime he didn’t commit. Now, he’s trying to start over. But, as he told FOX 4, it’s hard.

  • Immunization fight between family and state of Kansas going to the federal level

    STILWELL, Kan. — It’s a complex issue that starts with a simple problem: should a 2-year-old be vaccinated? The state of Kansas has legal custody of the 2-year-old, and it says yes. His grandparents, who are also his foster parents, have physical custody, and they say no. “I care about the environment he’s in,” said his grandmother, Terri Baker.

  • Royals fans look back on 2017 season

    KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Sunday was a bittersweet day at the K: the last game of the 2017 Royals Season, and possibly the last time several Raised Royal players will be in KC uniforms.

  • Metro humanitarian organization gets creative to help hurricane-ravaged, powerless Puerto Rico

    LENEXA, Kan. — Three million Americans are without power, and it could be months before they get it turned back on. Add to that buildings in ruins, the lack of clean water, and no way to communicate – that’s what Puerto Ricans are facing. Let’s take a second to focus on that three million number. The population of Puerto Rico is greater than the entire population of Kansas. And none of them have power. And the island isn’t that big: […]

  • Award ceremony held for missing veteran of Korean War

    KANSAS CITY, Mo. — While everyone’s eyes were on the flags — and knees — at football stadiums Sunday, flags flew for Corporal Edward Comstock at Missouri’s Korean Veteran Memorial in Kansas City.

It was a small ceremony — less than a 100 people sat in folding chairs at Washington Park, next to Kansas City’s Crown Center. But for the Comstock family, it was enough. “I wanted […]
