Hearne: Late Night Westport Death May Have Been Accident

It’s not easy piecing together what may have happened in an accident or crime after the fact…

Right now, police are hard at it attempting to unravel what went wrong where 24-year old Brian Euston is concerned late last Saturday night/early Sunday after a night of partying at Kelly’s in Westport. Euston was found unconscious outside on the ground suffering a severe head injury and later died.

Question is, how did it happen?

Three theories are under review, police say. Euston may have been beaten, hit by a car or merely slipped and fell.

Right now there are no front runners; no conclusive witness accounts and police await autopsy results.

But there are a couple theories floating around by Westport insiders.

“I think he just got bumped into and fell down and the sidewalk’s right there,” says Westporter Bill Nigro, who has reviewed the surveillance

    The news embargo on this can be attributed to several things.

    1. The family is well known and connected to the KCMO political community and police. They are probably getting preferential treatment by the police… as far as talking to the press goes. That is okay with me. When you build a business and are involved in the community… you earn that respect.
    2. The Westport death of a Rockhurst graduated Brookside hardware heir is bigger news than the death of a Hickman Mills graduated person with a record. Sorry… it is a fact. The Star, in their uber liberal way, is trying not to cover this story any more than they would any other death on the street.

    Let’s face it… It is a big story. It is a very big story. The possible repercussions to Westport, the police, the family of the deceased, etc. are pretty large.

    We have had a race riot on the Plaza in the last year, and Forbes calls us the third most unsafe place to live in the U.S.

    This story is being handled like a fragile egg, and I am not sure I disagree.

    I have my issues with jojo, but he is correct here. Why post anything if there is nothing added?? What is the point of 5 different threads about this story….. when NONE of the threads say ANYTHING useful? and ALL of the comments are directed at jojo….. is this some kind of comedy act?

    You would think with all of the gadamned invasive fking cameras posted all over creation, that one of them MIGHT DO SOME GOOD!!!

    not that I have any hope that this comment will actually getting posted, 3/4 of my comments are not these days…. censoring comments defeats the whole purpose of comments…… “delaying comments due to moderation is LAME!!

    but on a KU hating blog … what should I expect? …but it is geting old….. and boring….. and lame.

    rumor or truth?
    I think what we can agree on is that there is more going on in this story than the Police or Star are revealing, and more at play than Hearne and co. are aware of — yet.

    Hate to fuel this fire, but I’m also curious and impatient for the truth to come out. My source, connected to a resident at Truman hospital, says it was a random beating committed by two men who also documented doing it on video.

    Is this rumor incorrect? I desperately hope so. I live near this neighborhood, had friends out at Kelly’s that night, and I want the truth. Still, I understand the family’s desire for privacy and the police’s need to get the facts straight before they release anything, and I’m willing to be patient until that happens.
