KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) A 23-year-old woman found shot to death over the weekend in Kansas City, Kan., has been identified as Ebony Turner, a recent graduate of a nursing assistant program.
Now, friends tell KSHB-TV that Turner had been dating 22-year-old Claude Hudson when he was shot and killed four months earlier outside a nightclub in the city. Turner’s friend Tamika Pledger says the young woman had been struggling to cope with her boyfriend’s death.
Turner’s body was discovered Sunday in car that police say had been involved in an accident. Assistant Police Chief Terence Hall says investigators don’t believe Turner had been doing anything that might have caused someone to shoot her.
Hudson’s death on Aug. 11 remains unsolved. The killing of Turner was the year’s 25th homicide in Kansas City, Kan.
