Charges filed in attacks at Trolley Track Trail, KC car wash


From Christine Vendel:

Investigators used DNA and fingerprints to link a 23-year-old Kansas Citian to recent attacks on two women, officials announced today.

The suspect, James D. Kemp, lives less than five blocks from the Trolley Track Trail, where a masked assailant sodomized a woman in her 50s in June.

This month, a man fitting the same description attacked a woman at a car wash a block from the trail.

Jackson County prosecutors charged Kemp today with forcible sodomy, kidnapping, first-degree robbery and four counts of armed criminal action in connection with the two attacks.

According to court records, he admitted to both attacks when confronted with the DNA and fingerprint evidence.
