KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Kansas City, Missouri, police found three adults dead in a house Thursday night and are investigating the deaths as homicides.

Officers were sent about 9 p.m. to a home in the 3200 block of Woodland Avenue after a family member called and asked for officers to check on the people in the house, according to Officer Donna Drake, department spokesperson.

The officers found the victims inside the house with injuries that did not appear to be natural, Drake said.

It's unknown at this time how the three died.

Homicide detectives were canvassing the neighborhood Thursday night looking for people with information about the victims, Drake said.
