Body of man sought by police found near DeSoto

A Kansas City man was found dead near DeSoto by Johnson County sheriff's deputies on Saturday. Police said Justin Bruton, 20, died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head.

Bruton's body was discovered at 1:15 p.m. behind an out-of-business pallet company in the 9800 block of Sunflower Road.

Jackson County authorities had been looking for Bruton since Thursday, when the body of his girlfriend, who had been shot to death, was found in Lincoln Cemetery in Kansas City, Mo. He was not considered a suspect.
