Carl Farnsworth Jr.
What kind of person would allow a disheveled, stoned primate into their vehicle and presume that at least one murder wouldn’t occur?
Some serious relaxing around blacks was going on here.
Carl L. Farnsworth Jr. faces three charges in connection with a deadly shooting Tuesday inside a vehicle.
The Jackson County Prosecutor’s Office announced Wednesday that Farnsworth, 26, was charged with second-degree murder, armed criminal action and unlawful possession of a firearm in Dwayne Sutton’s death.
Kansas City, Missouri, police officers responded to the 4000 block of Blue Ridge Cutoff shortly before 7 p.m. on Tuesday to investigate a reported shooting.
Sutton was seated in a Mitsubishi sedan and was pronounced dead at the scene.
According to a passenger in the car, she picked up Sutton and Farnsworth at a hotel near 63rd Street and Missouri 350.
Farnsworth, who was seated in the front seat, was acting “crazy,” “erratic” and “higher than anyone” the witness had ever seen, according to a KCPD probable cause statement.
Farnsworth was upset and ranting that someone had stolen his money. Sutton attempted to calm him down and reassure him no one had stolen his money.
The witness turned up the radio to drown out Farnsworth’s voice.
Near Interstate 435 and Eastwood Trafficway, Farnsworth allegedly shot Sutton in the face and the witness saw him waving the gun around.
