KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Investigators are trying to piece together the circumstances that left a woman dead inside of a south Kansas City, Missouri, home on Friday afternoon.

Police said they were called to the 300 block of West 98th Street shortly after 3 p.m. to check on the welfare of residents inside the house.

When police entered the house, they found an adult woman inside. She was pronounced dead by emergency crews.

Police on Monday identified the victim as 38-year-old Georgia Petsch and said she died from an apparent gunshot wound.

Officers also found an adult male inside the home who was unresponsive. He was taken to an area hospital, where he was in stable condition Friday night.

A police spokesperson said homicide detectives were canvassing the area for any information to help determine the details of the case and asked anyone with information to call the Greater Kansas City Crime Stoppers Tips Hotline at 816-474-TIPS (8477).
