KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Police have identified two people who were found dead in a wooded area of Kansas City last weekend.

On Thursday, Kansas City police said the preliminary ruling from medical examiner’s office indicates the two died in a murder-suicide.

A KCPD spokesperson did not provide any further details, but said the agency is still investigating.

Around 2 p.m. Sunday, Kansas City police officers responded to N.E. 48th Street and Randolph Road. 

FOX4 spoke to a woman who wanted to remain anonymous. She said her nephew and his friends were out playing Sunday afternoon in the woods when they stumbled upon a car and looked inside. That’s where they saw the two victims.

The boys ran to a nearby neighbor’s home for help then that neighbor then immediately called police.

A spokesperson for KCPD said 40-year-old Misty Brockman and 42-year-old Kevin Moore were found with apparent trauma and pronounced dead at the scene.
