Just after 1 am on Sunday morning Overland Park dispatch received a call regarding a motor vehicle accident in the area of College Boulevard and Mastin Street. This was dispatched to officers as an “unknown type accident,” meaning the extent of injuries to anyone involved was unable to be classified due to lack of information.
We all know that things are not always as they appear at first glance. This is a case such as that and it was determined this event was a murder-suicide. The involved parties have been identified as Jamie Lee Newkirk, age 27, and Jason Hershey Crabtree, age 33.
“Why” is usually one of the first things to come up and that continues to be under investigation at this time.
