Deadly Encounters: Murder In Harvey County, Kansas
Harvey County is one of the smallest counties in Kansas, historically populated by hard-working, friendly, community-minded families always ready to lend a helping hand. For such a small, rural county it is surprising that any murders have ever affected our residents. Tragically, they have. The destruction of lives caused by the ungodly desires of wicked people has taken a toll not only on their own lives but also on the lives of their victims, the families, and the community as a whole.
Most of Harvey County’s murders have been fueled by alcohol and drugs and are motivated by domestic violence, anger & quarrels, lover’s triangles, and robberies. While we would prefer to focus on the victims rather than the aggressors, information on the victims is necessarily scarce by comparison. As families share more about the victims lives with us, those stories will be posted here.
