Kansas City Law firm owner indicted on first degree murder charges

Posted by admin on October 3rd, 2012

The owner of a Kansas City law firm was indicted Friday on first-degree murder and forgery charges, but authorities would not confirm whether it’s related to the 2010 shooting death of the attorney’s father.

The Jackson County Sheriff’s Office said in a news release that Susan Elizabeth Van Note, 44, of the Kansas City suburb Lee’s Summit, was arrested shortly after the indictment and that the charges are in connection to an investigation into a 2010 homicide in Camden County. The release does not name the homicide victim.

Van Note’s father, 67-year-old accountant William Van Note, was shot in October 2010 along with his companion, Sharon Dickson, 59. Dickson died in the shooting at their Sunrise Beach home at the Lake of the Ozarks in Camden County. Van Note died four days later in a hospital in Boone County.
