Kansas: a man known as Randy Potter was found dead as his decomposing body sat in his work vehicle for eight months in an airport parking lot 45 minutes from his home, while his family, police and friends searched relentlessly for him.
Potter had been dead by suicide the entire time as his family and police searched for him.
The body of Potter, age 53 when he was last seen alive on the morning of Jan. 17, was so decomposed in the vehicle parked at Kansas City International Airport that his gender and race were not immediately clear to investigators who later identified it.
According to Lenexa Police spokesman, Danny Chavez, when Randy Potter was reported missing:
“There was not at the time of the report any indication that he was endangered or suicidal”. “He just had not shown up to work and family had not heard from him. There were no suspicious circumstances or foul place suspected.”
