KBI requests assistance in identifying remains of woman found at Melvern Lake

OSAGE COUNTY, Kan. – The Kansas Bureau of Investigation and the Osage County Sheriff’s Office are requesting the public’s assistance in identifying the remains of a woman found Aug. 25, 2017, at Melvern Lake. It is believed the woman was the victim of a homicide.

Forensic anthropology experts from the Washburn University Anthropology Department assisted law enforcement in studying the remains. They reported that the deceased individual is female, and likely Hispanic, however, white cannot be ruled out.

They provided a likely age range between 35 and 50 years of age, but also offered a broader range of 30 to 65 years of age.

She was believed to have been 5 feet, 2 inches to 5 feet, 8 inches, but could potentially also be between 5 feet, 1 inches to 5 feet, 9 inches.

The report suggested that she was killed and has been at the scene since sometime between late fall 2016 and July 2017, with a narrower estimate of April 2017 to July 2017.

KBI agents and Osage County Sheriff’s Office are also releasing information about the woman’s clothing and jewelry to hopefully aid in identifying the victim. Her shirt size was small, and the brand was “No Boundaries.” Her pants size was 32×30, and the brand “Helix.” Her bra size was 44 and the brand “Fruit of the Loom.”

She was wearing several items of jewelry which include a silver ring that spells “love” in cursive writing, a gold or bronze ring with a red stone, a silver bangle bracelet, and gold or bronze framed eyeglasses.

Missouri man pleads guilty to Osage City bank robbery

Bank surveillance photo shows Hunter Prewitt as he was robbing Landmark National Bank, Osage City.

WICHITA, Kan. – A Missouri man pleaded guilty Monday to robbing a bank in Osage City, Kan., according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office.

Hunter Lee Prewitt, 28, of Mountain Grove, Mo., pleaded guilty to one count of bank robbery. He admitted he robbed the Landmark National Bank at 106 S. Sixth St., in Osage City, on Jan. 25, 2017.

Prewitt gave a teller a note saying: “This a robbery. Give me all one hundreds, fifties and twenties.”

He left the bank with cash and drove away in a white pickup truck.

Starting with a description of the truck, investigators obtained video surveillance photos and followed Prewitt’s movements including a stop at a gas station in Osage City before the robbery and a pawn shop in Lyndon, Kan.

The Missouri Highway Patrol used that information to identify a 2003 Ford F-150 pickup registered to Prewitt. A crime intelligence analyst with the Kansas Bureau of Investigation conducted a search of law enforcement tag readers and he found more information on Prewitt and the truck. Prewitt was arrested Feb. 14, 2017, outside of Springfield, Mo.

Sentencing is set for Dec. 18. Bank robbery carries a penalty of up to 20 years in a federal prison and a fine up to $250,000.

Sheriff asks Osage City area residents to check vehicles for missing property, break-ins

OSAGE CITY, Kan. – Following a raid on a home in Osage City during which numerous stolen items were recovered, the Osage County Sheriff has issued a notice to area residents to check their vehicles for missing items or possible break-ins.

Osage County Sheriff Laurie Dunn said a search warrant was served on Sept. 12, 2017, at 214 S. Sixth St., Osage City, in connection to several car burglaries that occurred in the Osage City area on the night of Sept. 7, or early morning hours of Sept. 8.

The sheriff said numerous stolen items were recovered including handguns. She said some of the suspected vehicle burglaries have not yet been reported to the Osage City Police Department or the sheriff’s office.

Contacted by Osage County News Thursday, Dunn declined to identify the residents of the home and would not say whether the residents of the home were suspects in the auto burglaries. She said the case will be forwarded to the Osage County Attorney’s Office for prosecution when the investigation is completed.

Anyone who believes that items are missing from their vehicle or their vehicle has been broken into is encouraged to report it to the sheriff’s office or Osage City police.

Snapchat post caused school district closure; Carbondale teen enters plea

LYNDON, Kan. – Just 15 words, two sentences, possibly a joke, posted on a popular social media network caused the entire Santa Fe Trail school district to close for the day on April 20, 2017, and resulted in a charge of criminal threat being brought against a 15-year-old Santa Fe Trail High School student.

Devin M. Culbertson, 15, of Carbondale, appeared in Osage County District Court today and entered a plea of no contest to a reduced charge of felony criminal threat.

Culbertson was originally charged with aggravated criminal threat in a May 4, 2017, criminal complaint. His attorney, Jack Hobbs, told the court the charge had been amended as result of plea negotiations with Osage County Attorney Brandon Jones.

In a press release about the arrest of Culbertson on the evening of April 19, Osage County Sheriff Laurie Dunn said the threat that caused the closure of the school was made verbally. “This was a verbal threat, no weapons or explosives were involved,” the sheriff said in the release.

An arrest affidavit filed by Osage County Sheriff Deputy Derrick Feliciano said that SFTHS Principal Patrick Graham notified him around 6 p.m. April 19, 2017, of a post on Snapchat he had received anonymously from a concerned parent.

According to Feliciano, Culbertson said in the Snapchat post, “[redacted] and [redacted] just dared me to columbine this place. Don’t come to school tomorrow.”

The deputy reported the statement was followed by four emoji smiley faces.

Feliciano also noted in his report that the next day, April 20, was the anniversary of the Columbine school shootings that happened in 1999 in Colorado.
