Sisters try to raise reward money
in KCK man's murder


From Christine Vendel:

Someone set him on fire during a confrontation about 2:30 a.m. July 2 in the 800 block of Miami Avenue in Kansas City, Kan., near where he had been living in a shed.

A neighbor tried to help him extinguish the flames. He suffered burns on his entire body — except for the soles of his feet. Doctors induced a coma to spare him as much pain as possible. He died at a hospital.

Now, three weeks later, his sisters are working to raise money for a reward fund to bring information that could solve the killing. They have raised $500 so far, which was added to the usual $1,000 offered by the TIPS Hotline for information.
