Police looking for person of interest in 75-year-old's murder

Kansas City Police are looking for a person of interest in the Oct. 29, 2010, murder of 75-year-old Nina Whitney. Ms. Whitney was killed in a home in the 11800 block of Belmont. A witness saw the man in the above composite sketch in the 11800 block of Belmont on the day of the homicide and said he did not live in the neighborhood.

The man is described as a white male, 45 to 60 years old, who was about 5 feet 8 inches tall and weighed about 200 pounds. He may have walked with a slight limp. He was seen getting into a newer-model black Jeep, possibly a Jeep Patriot or Liberty.

If you have any information about the person of interest or the case, please call the TIPS Hotline at 816-474-TIPS (8477).
