KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The Kansas City, Missouri Police Department and the Greater KC Crime Stoppers TIPS Hotline are asking for help to identify those responsible for the Feb. 4, 2018 homicide of 25-year-old Jacob Skowronski. 

According to a news release from Crime Stoppers, officers responded to 9804 Hedges Avenue to contact Skowronski’s parents. His parents told police they stopped at the residence to drop off laundry. Skowronski’s parents found the door unlocked and their son on the floor. 

Police originally believed the incident to be a suicide, but now say the case is being investigated as a homicide. 

The news release said in addition to a separate reward offered by the family for information leading to “arrest and conviction,” the Crime Stoppers reward has been raised thanks to an anonymous donor. Information leading to an arrest and/or filing of charges could be eligible for up to $15,000 in reward money. Information must be submitted through the Crime Stoppers TIPS Hotline. 

Anyone with information can call the hotline at 816-474-8477, submitted online at or through the mobile app P3TIPS available on Google Play or Apple store.
