Jackson County couple charged with Murder 1st Degree in Nov. 11 KC shooting death

December 5, 2017

A Jackson County couple charged with Murder 1st Degree in Nov. 1, 2017, shooting death in Kansas City, Jackson County Prosecutor Jean Peters Baker announced today.

Caitlyn A. Riffle, dob: 12/29/1992, of Independence, and Patrick R. Powell, dob: 5/25/1988, of Greenwood, MO., face Murder 1st Degree and Armed Criminal Action.*

According to court records, Kansas City police responded on Nov. 11, 2017, to the 4600 block of Tracy Avenue and found the victim, Rodney Thurber, dob: 10/9/1965, deceased at the scene. The cause of death was determined to be multiple gunshots. 

A witness told police that a woman visited the victim to retrieve a handgun when a man who identified himself as her boyfriend entered the apartment and shot Thurber. An extensive police investigation, using video from the scene and surrounding area, cell phone records and a gun trace, led police to Patrick Powell. 

Police arrested he and Riffle on Dec. 4.

Prosecutors requested bonds of $500,000 cash for each defendant. 


*Charges are only accusations and the defendant is presumed innocent unless and until the defendant is either found guilty or has pleaded.
