Posted: January 31, 2012 - 1:46am
Updated: February 2, 2012 - 1:02pm

The Kansas Highway Patrol is investigating after an early morning accident claimed the lives of two people in southern Johnson County.

Johnson County Sheriff's Deputies and Johnson County Fire District No. 1 were called to respond on an injury accident on southbound Interstate 35 between Moonlight road and Gardner road in Gardner. The incident was dispatched just after 1:30 a.m. Tuesday.

Sheriff's Deputies requested that the Kansas Highway Patrol's Accident Team respond to investigate the accident.

The Kansas Highway Patrol says that at 1:33 a.m., Tuesday, a 1993 Toyota Corolla, traveling southbound, left the highway for an unknown reason. The Corolla then came back onto the highway, began to roll ejecting both occupants onto the highway. A 2006 Dodge Caravan, also traveling southbound, then struck the Corolla before striking the ejected driver who was laying on the highway.

Investigators have released that the Toyota Corolla was being driven by 32-year-old, Jason R. Mees of Hiawatha, Kansas. His passenger was identified as 32-year-old, Jennifer D. Curbow of Edgerton, Kansas.

Both Mees and Curbow were pronounced dead at the scene. No one in the Corolla was wearing a seat belt at the time of the accident.

No one in the mini-van was injured.

Southbound lanes of Interstate 35 were reopened at 5:51 a.m.. They had been closed since the accident occurred, just over five hours earlier.

February 2, 2012 - MISSING Molly Jones from Overland Park, Kansas

Molly Jones, 27 - Click photo to view larger
Update: As of 5:50 a.m., Monday, Police confirm to Operation 100 News that Molly Jones has been located near a house just a few blocks west of the hospital. Authorities say she appears to be in good health and has been returned to the Hospital for continued treatment.




Original Story:

University of Kansas Medical Center Police are asking for the public's assistance in locating a woman who doctors consider "medically at risk." Police say that 27-year-old Molly Jones was last seen around 9:30 a.m. Saturday morning. Authorities say Jones' "health may be at risk."

During an earlier disappearance from her Overland Park home, OP Police said that Jones suffers from a medical condition which can cause her to become "catatonic and unaware of her surroundings." 

Molly's husband, Leighton Jones, says that "Molly did not walk away from the hospital, she ran. She was on lock down and escaped. This is not a simple case of someone becoming confused and walking away. She is unaware of her surroundings and unable to take care of herself."

A source at the University of Kansas Medical Center was not willing to comment on Leighton Jones' claims. A second hospital source also refused to confirm or deny the same information.

Jones is described as a white female, standing 5'5" tall, approximately 150 pounds, with red hair and blue eyes. She was last seen wearing a white knit shirt, gray athletic style pants and no shoes.

Anyone with information regarding her whereabouts is urged to call University of Kansas Medical Center Police at 913-588-5030.

When Jones previously disappeared from Overland Park, in November 2011, she was found safe the next day in Grove, Oklahoma. Previous story: Overland Park woman found in Oklahoma.

Additional photos below
Firefighters from Shawnee, Lenexa and Olathe battled fires at four homes this morning in the Red Oak Hills neighborhood in Shawnee. The first fire was reported at 17317 W 70th Street at 5:02 a.m.. This address is located just west of Interstate 435, between Midland Drive and Shawnee Mission Parkway.

A Fire Department official says that for the three homes, damage estimate is $450,000. Shawnee Fire Department Investigator Corey Sands says the two residents awoke to the sound of their home's windows cracking due to the heat of the fire. The home had a wood burning stove in the basement. What the homeowner believed to be cooled embers, were transferred from a metal can to a plastic bag and then into a garbage can behind the home. Those embers ignited up the rear of the home, fueled by the gusty winds.

The call was dispatched at 5:02 a.m. with the residents of the home calling 911 from a neighbors home. Initial reports from the resident were that the home was evacuated and had become heavily involved with fire. The two residents safely escaped from the home.

Shawnee Police arrived at 5:05 a.m. and confirmed that the house was fully involved with fire. Officers also reported that embers from the fire were blowing in the wind onto neighboring homes.

The first fire apparatus arrived on scene at 5:08 a.m. and immediately went into defensive operations. Aerial apparatus were setup to put water on the fire from above and help in containing the flying embers.

Police evacuated at least three neighboring homes, one of which the resident reported their windows were "beginning to crack".

One home, directly across the street at 17316 W 70th Street, sustained some minor fire damage to a front porch and a few bushes. That fire was quickly extinguished by firefighters. Damage to this home is said to be under $500.

At 5:20 a.m. a third home, at 6805 Mill Creek Road, sustained damage to it's roof after flying embers caught it's wood shake shingles on fire. Lenexa firefighters extinguished the roof fire. Damage to this home was estimated at nearly $7,000.

At 6:17 a.m., fire crews spotted a fourth home, at 6907 Mill Creek Road, with flames visible from a wooden rear deck. Fire crews quickly ordered additional units to respond to the area and assist . Damage to this home was also estimated at nearly $7,000.

Both fires on Mill Creek Road were reported to be extinguished at 6:56 a.m..

No injuries were reported on any of the fire scenes. Johnson County Med-Act was standing by at the scene.

Second man dead following pursuit

Posted: January 20, 2012 - 2:30am
Updated: January 20, 2012 - 11:50am

Casey Allen Cordell

Jackson County, Missouri Prosecutors have charged, 24-year-old Olathe resident, Casey Allen Cordell following the early morning car chase that began in Johnson County. Prosecutors say Cordell was behind the wheel of the stolen red Honda Accord that collided with a KCMO Water Department at 18th and Prospect.

Mission, Kansas Police say that they discontinued their pursuit as the vehicle crossed from Kansas into Missouri. Officers from Fairway and Westwood, both in Kansas, continued in pursuit until they lost the suspect vehicle near Children's Mercy Hospital in Kansas City, Missouri.

A short time later an unmarked Kansas City, Missouri Police car was nearly struck by the same vehicle at Armor Boulevard and Broadway. According to Kansas City, Missouri Police, the officer made a U-turn attempting to catch up with and follow the vehicle. Emergency equipment was not activated and the officer did not catch up with the speeding vehicle until after it had crashed with a Water Department pickup truck.

Christopher Ford
On Thursday, Casey Allen Cordell was charged with one count of first-degree involuntary manslaughter and one count of second-degree assault. Prosecutors requested that Cordell be held on a $250,000 bond. Prosecutors say Cordell is responsible for the death of, 26-year-old, Christopher Ford who was a passenger in the stolen vehicle.

Friday Morning, Kansas City, Missouri Police now say the second passenger in the stolen vehicle, 19-year-old, Christian M. Howard who was critically injured in the crash, has passed away as a result of his injuries. Prosecutors are reevaluating the current charges at this time, according to a spokesperson.

The driver of the Water Department truck, 51-year-old, Keith Burris is said to have suffered minor injuries in the crash.



Authorities say the red Honda Accord was stolen from an address in Olathe, Kansas and the license plate was also stolen from an address in Lenexa, Kansas.

Court records show that Casey Cordell was released by the Kansas Department of Corrections in December 2011. He served 18 months for drug and theft related offenses. He also has previous run-ins with Johnson County, Kansas law enforcement which include charges of Domestic Battery, and Fleeing/Eluding a Police Officer.

Minutes after 2 a.m. Thursday morning, Mission Police began pursuing a red Honda Accord believed to be displaying a stolen Kansas Veterans license plate.

One in custody following high speed car chase

Posted: January 10, 2012 - 3:20am
Updated: January 10, 2012 - 11:12am

Mission Police found themselves involved in a high speed pursuit with a possibly stolen truck early this morning. Police say at 3:07 a.m. Tuesday, an Officer on patrols spotted a red Dodge Ram pickup truck near Broadmoor Street and W 58th Street in Mission. When the Officer attempted to stop the truck, the vehicle took off southbound towards Johnson Drive.

The driver turned westbound onto Johnson Drive and increased his speed to more than 60 miles per hour passing through Overland Park. As the vehicle continued on Johnson Drive into Merriam, a dispatcher reported to the pursuing Officers that the vehicle was reported stolen from an address in Kansas City, Kansas. Speeds reached 65 miles per hour as the driver crossed Antioch road and then under the Interstate 35 bridge.

The chase then crossed into Shawnee with speeds still around 60 miles per hour and westbound on Johnson Drive. At Quivira road, the chase turned north, with speeds reaching nearly 80 miles per hour before crossing W 55th Street. Chasing Officers continued into Kansas City, Kansas, still northbound on Quivira, which becomes S 63rd Street in Kansas City.

Just north of S 63rd Street and Gibbs road, the chase came to an end when the driver stopped and was taken into custody without further incident. The chase lasted just over 12 minutes, covering a distance of just over five and a half miles and passing through five cities. Mission Police were the only agency directly involved in the pursuit.

The male driver was wanted on several charges out of a neighboring jurisdiction and now faces additional charges directly related to the chase, including attempt to flee and elude. He is yet to be formally charged in Johnson County Court. The stolen vehicle was recovered and towed from the scene where the pursuit ended. No traffic collisions or any injuries were reported.
