Platte City Homicide

Platte County authorities say the death of a 56-year-old man is being investigated as a possible homicide.
Officers were called to a home in a rural section of the county twice on Tuesday northeast of Platte City.
They found the man dead on the second call.
A 59-year-old relative of the dead man was questioned in the death. No other details were immediately released.
If the death is ruled a homicide, it would be the first in Platte County this year.
