Four times in the past year, Fredrick Scott reported to police that a handgun had been stolen from him.

Police now suspect he used those guns in the shooting deaths of five people in Kansas City and reported them stolen to throw off investigators, according to court documents filed in support of murder charges against Scott in two of the deaths.

But those stolen gun reports should have drawn authorities to Scott, an ATF expert said Thursday.

Brian Darby, the son of Michael Darby, the fourth murder victim in the five south Kansas City homicides police have linked, questioned whether the last of the deaths could have been prevented.
