Crime scene technicians noted that the rope and other items at the scene were similar in appearance to items located at a Gladstone, MO, homicide. A shell casing located in a vehicle involved in the Gladstone crime was linked to the casing found in Kansas City. Both casings also were matched to a Raytown assault. DNA on the casing at the Kansas City scene was linked to the defendant. In addition, DNA collected from the victim's wrist and the rope knot on the victim's hands were linked to the defendant.
