KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The Kansas City, Kansas, Police Department is asking the public for assistance in solving a 2020 homicide.

KCKPD says detectives have no new leads in the killing of Enice Fuel, and are asking for any information to prevent the case from going cold.

On Dec. 12, 2020, officers responded to reports of shots fired near 10th Street and Orville Avenue.

Upon arrival to the scene, police found Fuel's body in a dark blue 2011 Dodge Journey at the intersection of N. 11th Street and Orville.

"Family and friends describe Enice as 'smart, loving, and a funny jokester' who could sing and was always kind to everyone he met," KCKPD Public Information officer Nancy Chartrand said in a written statement.

Fuel was 29 at the time of his death.

"Someone saw something or heard something - could be they thought it was nothing so they said nothing," Chartrand said. "In reality it could be that one little bit of information that will allow detectives to make an arrest and bring justice to Enice’s family. Now is the time for them to come forward before the person or persons responsible for this young man’s death inflicts pain on another family through violence."
