Family of unaccounted man found dead in KCI parking lot files suit

KANSAS CITY, Mo. – Family members of a man who was found dead in a Kansas City International Airport parking lot after being reported missing for several months have filed a lawsuit against the company in charge of patrolling the lot.

Randy Potter, 53, was first reported missing in January 2017 when his family spread the word to area media.

Several months later in September, officials at KCI Airport Police on patrol in an economy parking lot found Potter dead inside of his Dodge pickup truck.

Although Potter’s death was ruled a suicide, family members were distraught at how Potter’s body wasn’t discovered after eight months in the lot.

The lot is managed by SP+, a company contracted by the city.

The civil suit, filed in Platte County District Court, alleges employees at SP+ failed to follow their own policies.

A judge scheduled a hearing date on July 20.
