KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Police have identified a man whose body was found over the weekend in a Kansas City neighborhood.

The body of Martez Brock, 34, was found near a residential area Friday night by officers responding to a report of "suspicious party," authorities said. Police spokesman Capt. David Jackson said Brock's injuries were consistent with foul play, but police have not said what the cause of death was.

The Kansas City killing marked the city's 174th homicide this year, up sharply from 2019. By the same time last year, there had been 139 killings.
