Ticker – Kansas City police find body in man’s car after towing it

KANSAS CITY, Mo. – Family members are questioning why Kansas City police didn’t find a man’s body in the cargo area of his own SVU until after they towed it to a Missouri police station earlier this month.

Police are defending how they handled the situation. They say they didn’t have a search warrant at the time the vehicle was towed on Jan. 17 and the dead man, Adam “A.J.” Blackstock Jr., hadn’t been officially reported missing then.

Blackstock’s family says they just wants answers about what happened to the 24-year-old. The case is being investigated as a homicide.
