Two Dead Missouri Women Linked to One Suspect

Remains found in Kansas City, Missouri have been confirmed to belong to a missing 17-year-old named Kara Kopetsky. The missing girl is part of a 10-year long mystery that began when the teen left her school and was never seen again. Belton police where Kopetsky lived said in a statement that the remains have been confirmed as beloning to Kara Kopetsky by a DNA test conducted by the FBI. The bones were found along with one other set in Cass County last April. Kopetsky left her High School on May 4, 2007 never to be found until her remains were confirmed today.

Kopetsky's skull was located in the woods near Belton when a mushroom hunter discovered the remains of another missing victim, 21-year-old Jessica Runions from Raymore, Missouri. Runions has been missing since last September and her death has been ruled a homicide by investigators. The primary suspect of police in the Runions murder is 27-year-old Kylr Yust who was last seen leaving with Runions on September 8, 2016. The deceased girls are both being considered linked to Yust.

Police are questioning Yust in the disappearance of both girls since Kopetsky filed a protection order against him in April of 2007 shorty before her disappearance. Kopetsky dated Yust and claimed that he kidnapped and restrained her, choked her and also made threats to slit her throat during the 9 month period that they dated. Kopetsky stated in official court documents, "I'm unsure what he will do next, because the abuse has gotten worse over time."
