KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- The suspect in what police believe is a murder-suicide had a violent past.
Kansas City police named Kareem McCoy-Lee as a suspect in the disappearance and death of 18-year-old Mikayla Norris of Overland Park. He was found dead Tuesday from what police believe was a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
McCoy-Lee, who lived in Kansas City and was from Florida, had a lengthy criminal history.
In September, a police report shows McCoy-Lee was accused of stabbing an ex-girlfriend.
Though no criminal charges appear to have been filed in that apparent incident, a personal protection ordered was filed against McCoy-Lee around the same time.
A Facebook post reportedly written by McCoy-Lee shows him talking about wanting to kill his ex-girlfriend and her mother.
According to court records, McCoy-Lee was also charged with assault in early 2017 and in 2015 for other incidents that occurred in Kansas City.
While living in Florida, McCoy-Lee was charged with domestic violence in 2013.
In that incident, police report that McCoy-Lee admitted to pulling his girlfriend's hair and throwing her to the ground while in an argument over the girl's ex-boyfriend.
