Michael J. Tutera has been identified as the this morning's homicide victim in a gated community in

the 5300 block of Sunset Place.

Police say they are following up "some good leads" in the death of 49-year-old Tutera. If you have any information about this man's death, call

the TIPS Hotline 816-474-8477.

Tutera's body was discovered around 1 a.m.

His family runs nursing homing and real estate businesses under the Tutera Group name.

The Kansas City Business Journal reported in December 2009 that Tutera

was suing his mother, brother and sister, claiming the "committed

fraud, breached their fiduciary duties and intentionally misrepresented

the value of the bank to encourage Tutera to sell his ownership stake"

in Central Bank of Kansas City. According to Case Net, a motion hearing had been scheduled for July 7.


The Pitch's Charles Ferruzza snapped photos of the scene

on Sunset Place earlier today.
