KANSAS CITY, Mo. — A 12-year-old found his father dead inside the trunk of a vehicle in a downtown Kansas City parking garage on Friday afternoon, police said.
Police said the discovery was made in a parking garage in the 600 block of Central Street just before 3 p.m.
The child was looking for something else when he found his father, police said. The child's father had been missing for several days.
Police said they were investigating the cause of the man's death, and how long he had been in the trunk.
"It's really shocking, we have a dog, we walk him at night and I've never felt unsafe here," neighbor Andrew Wilcox said. "It's always been a very safe neighborhood."
