UPDATE: The death of the man found decapitated under the Interstate 635 bridge has been rule a suicide by the Wyandotte County coroner. The Star explains how (and it's not pretty): "The man had jumped off a bridge near Interstate 635 at the Missouri River with a rope around his neck, the coroner said."
Original Story (December 8): Gruesome discovery near the Missouri River yesterday. A man's decapitated body was found under the Interstate 635 bridge in Kansas City, Kansas, around 3 p.m. Tuesday.
Police are calling this a "death investigation," so we'll have to wait to find out if foul play was involved. KCTV5 reported that the head was found near the body.
We don't know a lot about the headless man other than he was white. His name hasn't been released.
