Platte County crime victims honored at annual luncheon

The murder of a Platte County woman that was solved when another woman survived a vicious attack by the same man was featured during Platte County’s 13th annual victims’ rights event on April 12.  Alyssa Shippert was killed in a brutal attack on the banks of the Platte River in May 2011, but her killer, Quintin O’Dell, was brought to justice largely because the woman attacked on Christmas in 2011 was able to identify him.

 Platte County Prosecuting Attorney Eric Zahnd, Janet Williams, Pam Clark, Jill Casey

Platte County Prosecuting Attorney Eric Zahnd, Janet Williams, Pam Clark, Jill Casey

The luncheon, hosted by the Platte County Prosecuting Attorney’s office, was attended by more than 100 people, including victims, law enforcement officers, county officials, and members of the public.  The luncheon took place at the Platte County Resource Center, and was free to the public.

Platte County Prosecuting Attorney Eric Zahnd said, “It’s been said that we should bear one another’s burdens, and that’s exactly what this event is all about.  We want crime victims to know that the entire community will help bear the burden that crime has forced upon victims, and we will do everything in our power to achieve justice and help victims heal.”

Platte County’s luncheon is part of National Crime Victims’ Rights Week, which runs from April 8-14 in 2018.

The luncheon included excerpts from a recent episode of On the Case with Paula Zahn, a television series that airs on the Investigation Discovery network.  The episode featured Alyssa’s Shippert’s murder and how O’Dell’s subsequent victim helped bring him to justice.

Alyssa Shippert’s sister, Pam Clark, spoke at the luncheon.  She recounted how Alyssa’s death deeply impacted her family. 

Clark spoke poignantly about her sister and told the audience that, for many months, there was not a day after Alyssa’s murder that she did not think of Alyssa and cry.  But she also spoke of hope, saying that, while her grief will never disappear, time has helped heal her loss.

The luncheon also featured the presentation of the Sara Andrasek Memorial Award.  That award is given each year in the memory of the Platte County woman who was raped and murdered in 2001 while pregnant with her first child. Zahnd’s office and the Kansas City, Missouri Police Department were in the final stages of preparing a death penalty case against Wayne Dumond when Dumond died while in custody.

The 13th Annual Sara Andrasek Award was given to the woman who survived Quintin O’Dell’s second attack.  Out of respect for her privacy, Zahnd’s office is not naming the woman publicly.

After sustaining horrendous injuries on Christmas 2011 and being unconscious in the hospital for four days, the woman awoke and was able to identify Quintin O’Dell as the last person she had seen.  Because she was able to identify O’Dell, detectives with the Platte County Sheriff’s Department and prosecutors were ultimately able to prove O’Dell had not only attacked that woman, but he had also killed Alyssa Shippert.

O’Dell was convicted of murdering Shippert and assaulting the other woman.  He is serving a sentence of life without the possibility of parole.

Zahnd said, “This year’s Sara Andrasek Award honors a survivor of crime whose strength, courage, and overarching will to live led to the apprehension of a vicious murderer. I believe that murderer would have killed other young women had he not been stopped.  Fortunately, he was stopped because this crime victim survived and identified her attacker.”

Zahnd presented the award to the woman with Janet Williams, who is Sara Andrasek’s mother.

A photo, from left, of Platte County Prosecuting Attorney Eric Zahnd with, Janet Williams, mother of Sara Andrasek, Pam Clark and Jill Casey, who are Alyssa Shippert’s sisters, is above.  If you need additional information, please contact our office’s medial liaison, Tanya Faherty.

LET'S WRITE A SUCCESS STORY

Repeat sex offender sentenced to 40 years in prison

A Kansas City man who had previously been convicted of rape has been sentenced to 40 years in prison for sexually abusing two young girls.  Richard E. Hughes, 57, received the sentenced on April 5 after pleading guilty that same day in Platte County Circuit Court to two counts of statutory sodomy in the first degree.

 Richard E. Hughes

Richard E. Hughes

Platte County Prosecuting Attorney Eric Zahnd said, “This defendant had already been convicted of rape and sentenced to two decades in prison.  Tragically, when he was released from prison, he sexually abused two more victims.  This sentence should ensure he is never released from prison to hurt another person.”

In October 2016, investigators with the Kansas City Police Department began investigating Hughes’ abuse of two girls, who were seven and nine years old at the time.  One of the girls had disclosed the abuse to a relative during a family meal.

According to one of the victims, the abuse began when she was two years old.  Hughes continued to have contact the girls and abused them for years after. 

Hughes admitted to authorities that everything the girls said was true. He told police he had been dealing with this sort of thing since he was “knee high to a grasshopper.”

Hughes was arrested in Buchanan County for rape in 1983.  He was ultimately sentenced to 21 years in prison for that crime.  

Zahnd said, “This defendant was brought to justice because one of these girls was brave enough to disclose to a relative what was happening to her.  That family member, in turn, believed what the girl had to say and reported the abuse to police.  We are better as a society when we start by believing what sexual abuse victims have to say.”

Zahnd encouraged people to visit www.startbybelieving.org for more information on supporting victims of sexual abuse.

The case was investigated by the Kansas City Police Department.  It was prosecuted by Assistant Prosecuting Attorney Miranda Loesch.

A photo of Hughes is above.  If you need more information, please contact our media liaison, Tanya Faherty.

USA Today named Parkville's Main Street 'most charming' main street in Missouri 
It might be called Main Street or it may just serve that purpose. Regardless, these streets lead you into the heart of a small town. "It's a quaint, small town feel, so close to the metropolitan area," said Mike Carney, Main Street Parkville Association President.  When you walk up and down Main Street in Parkville, it takes you back in time."The pace is a little slower and it's a throwback to yester-year with some of the streetscapes and being able to walk along and go in and out of all the different shops," said Carney.   Watch Video to hear the rest of the story.

Public invited to free luncheon honoring crime victims

The public is invited to attend the thirteenth annual Victims’ Rights Luncheon hosted by the Platte County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office.  The free luncheon will be held at Noon on Thursday, April 12, at the Platte County Resource Center, 11724 NW Plaza Circle, Kansas City, Missouri 64153

The luncheon is part of National Crime Victims’ Rights Week, which runs from April 8 through April 14.  Platte County Prosecuting Attorney Eric Zahnd’s office has hosted an event as part of the national observance since 2006.

Zahnd said,  “I hope we can fill the room with people willing to support people who have suffered as a result of crime.  We will enjoy lunch together and hear important stories about how senseless criminal acts can affect each one of us.”

Landis Shippert will speak at the luncheon.  He is the father of Alissa Shippert, who was murdered in 2011 in Platte County by Quintin O’Dell.  O’Dell is serving life in prison without the possibility of parole for that murder and the assault of another woman on Christmas in 2011.  The case against O’Dell was recently featured on an episode of “On the Case with Paula Zahn” on the Investigation Discovery network 

The luncheon will also feature the presentation of the thirteenth Annual Sara Andrasek Memorial Award, which recognizes particularly outstanding service to crime victims.

Andrasek was pregnant with her first child when she was raped and murdered.  Zahnd’s office and the Kansas City, Missouri Police Department were in the final stages of preparing a death penalty case against Wayne Dumond for his crimes when Dumond died while in custody.

If you have any questions about the event, please feel free to contact Tanya Faherty at (816) 858-3476.

PARKVILLE
USA Today named Parkville's Main Street 'most charming' main street in Missouri 
It might be called Main Street or it may just serve that purpose. Regardless, these streets lead you into the heart of a small town. "It's a quaint, small town feel, so close to the metropolitan area," said Mike Carney, Main Street Parkville Association President.  When you walk up and down Main Street in Parkville, it takes you back in time."The pace is a little slower and it's a throwback to yester-year with some of the streetscapes and being able to walk along and go in and out of all the different shops," said Carney.

Beyond the Loop - Initial Alternatives Open House

Beyond the Loop - Open House

unnamed.png

As you know, the Broadway/O'Neil Bridge will need to be replaced in the coming years and several options have emerged for a re-imagined North Loop in the context of a reconfigured river crossing. Public input on initial strategies has helped to refine potential alternatives, but more input is needed in finalization of the study. Review displays, assessments of the refined alternatives and results of future traffic models at either open house.

The first open house is located at MARC (Mid-America Regional Council) on Wednesday, March 21st, 4:30-6:30 p.m.

The second open house is located at iWerx on Thursday, March 22nd, 4:30-6:30 p.m.

Participants are encouraged to join the meeting at their convenience. For more information contact Martin Rivarola at 816-474-4240.

Please notify MARC at 816-474-4240 at least 48 hours in advance if you require special accommodations to attend this meeting (i.e., qualified interpreter, large print, reader, hearing assistance).
