Trolley Track Attacker Appears in Court

James Kemp was shackled to other inmates this morning at his first hearing at the Jackson County Courthouse. It was a routine first appearance and a new court date was set for Aug 22. Kemp is facing 8 Felony counts (4 Armed Criminal Action, 2 Kidnapping, 1 Sodomy, 1 Robbery) in connection with attacks on the Trolley Track Trail near the Waldo section of Kansas City, and at the Top of the Wornall Car Wash. He is being held on a $250,000 cash only bond.

According to court documents, DNA from the first attack where he Sodomized a woman on the Trolley Track Trail June 16th matched Kemp. Fingerprints from the second attack also match Kemp. Reportedly, he confessed when confronted with the evidence. The second attack is particularly chilling. The victim was able to get the duct tape off of her wrists to fight off her attacker and it really sounds like she was in a life or death battle.

His poor, pregnant wife was on the news last night making a fool of herself claiming that her husband is owed an apology and he would never do anything like this. She, along with Kemp's brother and sister think a confession was coerced by the cops. Yeah, coerced after he saw all the evidence they had. This fucking idiot has ruined lots of peoples lives. Hopefully his (future ex) wife and unborn child can move on and make something of themselves. I actually feel bad for her. Yes, Mr Wonderful does have feelings.

Kidnapping and Bank Robbery in Overland Park

A bizarre story of kidnapping and bank robbery is unfolding in Overland Park this morning. According to Jim Weaver of the Overland Park Police Department, the victim, who is a 20yr old employee of the US Bank on 119th st near 69 Hwy, was abducted in the parking lot of his apartment complex last night. Supposedly, the robber/kidnapper took the man and his car to the bank early this morning where the employee opened up the bank and it was robbed.

The victim was found this morning by another employee opening up the bank at around 7:30AM. He had been beaten and was tied to a chair. An FBI spokesperson said the suspect is a white male, 6 feet tall, 180 pounds between 30 and 40 years old. He was last seen in a gray t-shirt driving the victim's light blue 2008 Chevy Aveo (nice car). No word on how much money was stolen.

This story sounds a little weird to me. An inside job maybe? In fact, I wouldn't at all be surprised if the "victim" in this case was also the perpetrator (or one of the perps). If I am wrong, this kid sure is lucky he wasn't killed. I'm sure we will know sometime in the near future. We will keep you posted here on Kansas City News.

Plaza Jewelry Store Robbed

Bookmark and Share

Like something out of Hollywood script, Vinca Jewelry on the Plaza was robbed early Monday. When store owner, Simon Zouein, arrived to work Monday morning, everything seemed normal until he opened his safe. When he opened the safe, he discovered a hole cut in the back and through the concrete wall behind the safe. The thieves cut through 6-inch concrete wall and 6-inch thick steel in the back of the safe. They took diamonds and gold jewelry - the loss was substantial, but the store owner and police declined to say how much.

Police estimate the job took four to five hours, quite astonishing considering they had to make quite a racket. They accessed the wall from a service alley between the store and a neighboring restaurant. Highwoods Properties, the owner of Plaza could not be reached for comment - they are responsible for security and control of the access alley.

In this age of Security cameras everywhere, how could a heist like this be pulled off? Was it an inside job? Certainly the thieves had cased the joint at the very least - how else would they know where the safe was located behind the wall? I have a feeling the insurance company will want some answers to these questions.

Man Shot and Killed by Store Clerk in Kansas City

Bookmark and Share

For the second time this week, a disturbance at a local Shell Station has lead to gunshots. The gas station and convenience store located at 5501 Bannister Rd in Kansas City was the scene of a fatal shooting last night. Police responded to a disturbance call at the location that was quickly upgraded to a shooting around 7PM on Friday. A witness described the victim as "acting crazy", throwing things and generally tearing the place up before the clerk took action. The clerk reportedly tasered the man before shooting him. Police arrived to find the man bleeding just outside the door of the store. He later died at the hospital.

Early Wednesday morning, cops were called to the same station. Two armed men tried to hold up the store. A clerk (we don't know if it was the same one involved in last nights incident), pulled a gun from his waistband and fired several shots. The would be robbers fled and have not been arrested. One of the men may have been shot.

I think the message has been sent to would be robbers and other dirt bags. Do not pull any shenanigans at the Shell Station at 5501 Bannister Rd. They are packin' and not afraid to spray a little lead. One more piece of trash cleaned off the street.
