GLADSTONE, Mo. - More than a dozen tips have been called-in to help solve the murder investigation of an overnight AT&T technician who was killed on the job Wednesday morning
Kevin Mashburn was found severely beaten at about 3 a.m. Wednesday while working a call near 57th Street and Antioch in Gladstone. Friday detectives said the metro squad was working around the clock to follow-up on 15 tips that had been reported to the CrimeStoppers hotline.
"These types of investigations, you get a lot of investigators on it at once," Capt. Jeff Self said. "You can follow-up on a lot of tips and a lot of leads. It's very useful, so it's a great resource."
Mashburn had been with AT&T for more than 40 years, and his company didn't waste anytime in announcing a $100,000 reward for any information that leads to an arrest.
"I think it just speaks volumes not only about AT&T but about my father and how respected he was," eldest son William Mashburn said.
Self said detectives are relying on information from the public in solving this case and said none of the tips given so far have lead to any suspect or motive information. Tipsters are encouraged to share information by calling 816-474-TIPS.
Mashburn's was a member of CWA Local 6360 workers union. Friday, the union announced a memorial fund in his name. Donations can be made at any Brotherhood National Bank.
