A counselor who helps murder victims' families was at the scene and says she knows firsthand what its like to lose a child.

"I let them know that I am a mother that lost a child to homicide here in Kansas City, that I can help them with the police investigation, how long it takes for a search warrant," said Rosilyn Temple with KC Mothers in Charge. "As a mother losing a child to homicide you need someone is there saying, 'I know how you feel.'"
