COWLEY COUNTY, Kan. (KSNW) – Cowley County deputies said the man they were looking for, in connection with a trailer home fire, was found dead with a self-inflicted gunshot wound. The man was identified as 23-year-old Jacob Andes.
Authorities were dispatched on Tuesday to 19979 151st Road for a disturbance, and upon arrival, they observed smoke coming from a single wide trailer home that soon became engulfed.
A deputy reported hearing what sounded like popping noises from inside the residence and believed it could either be gun shots or noises from the fire itself. A perimeter was set up and crews with the Winfield Fire Department and Atlanta Fire Department arrived and extinguished the fire.
