“There are a few things about the truck that stands out. It has a bed cover on the truck bed. It has tinted windows. It’s got six pointed star wheels and nerf bars on the driver side and passenger side,” OPD spokesman Joe Yeldell said.

“Something like this when we have that limited information, that partnership between police and the community really comes to the forefront. So we’re requesting that information to work together for justice and truth for these families.”

This case remains under investigation by the Olathe Police Department. Anyone with information regarding this investigation is asked to call (913) 971-6363 or the TIPS Hotline at (816) 474-8477.
