KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The question still lingers at Kansas City Police headquarters, where is Marcus Benson? The 34-year-old Benson and his girlfriend Jacole Prince both face felony charges after Prince’s 10-year-old daughter was found locked in a furnace closet.
Investigators say at the time of the disturbing discovery the child was severely malnourished, dirty and under weight. On Monday, Benson’s sister called FOX 4
and said her brother would turn himself in to police. As of late Monday night, Benson still hadn’t surrendered.
Jackson County prosecutors charged Benson with child endangerment. Jacole Prince is already in jail and faces several charges including neglect and child abuse.
