Two bodies found near Longview Lake area

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Officials have confirmed to FOX4 that two bodies were found in the Longview Lake area on Wednesday afternoon.

Police have not yet confirmed the identities of the bodies but say they are investigating whether they are the two men who recently disappeared.

The area of investigation is in the 12500 block of Raytown Road. The bodies were found deep in the woods. Homicide and crime scene detectives are at the scene.

"Given the location it is important for detectives and crime scene techs to approach methodically to maintain the integrity of the crime scene, and so it is going to take a while before we get to the point of actual identification," KCPD Capt. Lionel Colon said.

Michael Brewer and Keith Wasmer recently disappeared in that same area. Their families say they went to the the Longview Lake Marina to meet a man named Sam but never returned home.

Police found Keith's car the next day, but they said it was under suspicious circumstances.

"They said that it looked like it had been pulled in really quickly. The tires weren't straight. The door was wide open, and there was nothing in the car," Brewer's sister told FOX4 on Sunday.

Brewer`s family raced to the scene when they found out there were two bodies found in the area.

"I don't know if I want to know if these bodies are my son or we are still looking for them. One is just as bad as the other. I don`t know. I need information to process this," said Jeff Brewer, Michael's father.

Sources say the "Sam" the men met up with may be the same person who led police on a deadly police chase and crash over the weekend. That man, 22-year-old Samuel Delozier, is in custody, charged with involuntary manslaughter.

FOX4 asked KC police if this is the same guy who was last believed to have been with the missing men.

"It is way too early in the investigation to make that type of determination, but we have been in contact with Raytown PD in regards. So we are working with them and also just seeing where this investigation leads," Colon said.
