KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) – Police in Kansas City, Kansas, are investigating the death of a man inside an auto body shop where a van crashed through a wall.

WDAF-TV reports police believe the conversion van smashed partway into Calvert’s Express Auto Service sometime early Tuesday.

But it wasn’t until a tow truck arrived several hours later to remove the van that the body was found underneath it.

It’s not clear why the man was in the shop, and his name has not been released. Police are treating the death as suspicious and asking the public for any information while they also review surveillance video from nearby businesses. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
