A little before 1 p.m. On Friday, the KBI said the Cowley County Sheriff’s Office has asked the agency to conduct an investigation. The KBI said officers and the Crime Scene Response Team (CSRT) responded to the scene.
“Preliminary information indicates that deputies with the Cowley County Sheriff’s Office received a 911 call at approximately 11:45 a.m. m. reporting a suspicious vehicle,” the KBI explained in Friday night’s press release. “They began searching for the reported black Jeep Liberty, and at approximately 12:10 p.m. agents radioed that they had located the vehicle north of Winfield, Kansas. It was parked a quarter of a mile west of US Highway 77 on 122nd Road.”
