Authorities Suspect Suicide
In a strange turn of
events for a group of people flying over the Kansas countryside, a
pleasure flight turned into a grisly suicide on Monday afternoon.
The Topeka Capitol-Journal reports a man was killed in an apparent
suicide Monday when he jumped from an airplane flying at about
2,500 feet in southeast Geary County (KS).
Geary County sheriff's officials weren't releasing the name or
age of the man, whom Sheriff Jim Jensen said was one of three
people on a plane that took off from Manhattan Regional Airport.
Officials said his department received information at about 2:15
p.m. that someone may have committed suicide by jumping from the
skies above the area of Humboldt Creek Road, south of Interstate 70
in southeast Geary County.
After the call, sheriff's deputies conducted a search that
involved fixed-wing aircraft and a Kansas Highway Patrol
helicopter. The man's body was spotted by aircraft at about 4:30
p.m. The newspaper did not disclose if the man said anything to the
plane's occupants before jumping.
