The Inter-City News was the only press on scene at 3:00PM Friday afternoon as divers from the Water Patrol Division of the Missouri State Highway Patrol assisted the Sugar Creek Police in an ongoing investigation at Le Benite Park at Hwy 291 and the Missouri River.

We spoke with Sugar Creek Detective Sergeant Matt Kline who informed us that they had two vehicles in the river that they believe are connected to an incident that took place in September. A tow service was en route and the Highway Patrol divers would be assisting in the extrication of the vehicles from the river at which point Sugar Creek Police would continue their investigation.  Last night police announced that one vehicle had been pulled from the river. The case continues to be under investigation by the Sugar Creek Police Department and the Jackson County Medical Examiner's Office.

Sgt. Kline was unable to share any more information pending notification of family members.   We will post more information as it becomes available
