Investigation: BPU knew of down power-line 11 hours before death


KANSAS CITY, KAN. --- The Board of Public Utilities said today they were informed about a down power-line at Rosedale Park that killed a Shawnee, Kan., man.

Nicholas Moeder was killed early Sunday morning by a power-line that was left unattended at Rosedale Park.

At press conference today, BPU said they were informed about the down power-line at 4:07 p.m. on Saturday afternoon.

According to reports, Moeder was electrocuted at Rosedale Park shortly after 3 a.m. on Sunday morning.

(NOTE: I was unable to make the press conference today due to a doctor's appointment that was scheduled long before the press conference. I'll send you over to NBC Action News for additional video and coverage.)
