The Kansas City man suspected of killing three people, including two along Indian Creek Trail and one in Grandview, now faces charges in three additional murders in south Kansas City, including that of a popular local business owner.
On Friday Jackson County prosecutor Jean Peters Baker charged Fredrick Scott, 23, with the murder of David Lenox, Timothy Rick and Michael Darby. He faces three additional first-degree murder charges and three additional armed criminal action charges.
