LONE JACK, Mo. (AP) -- Police in a small east-central Missouri town say a man and 7-year-old boy were found dead at a house.
Police Chief Bill Forbes says family members called police after finding the bodies Tuesday evening in Lone Jack, about 40 miles south of Kansas City. Authorities have not officially called the deaths a murder-suicide, but said residents did not need to fear that a murder suspect was at large.
The relationship between the victims was not released until relatives can be contacted.
