May 13, 2012, Raytown resident Harry Stone, 60, was on a morning jog. He was on Blue Ridge Blvd when a dark car passed by near 67th Street. Someone in the passing vehicle shot Stone who collapsed alongside the road.
Nearly four years later, a Kansas City man who was 20 in May 2012 has been charged in connection with Stone’s murder, Jackson County Prosecutor Jean Peters Baker announced today.
Craig L. Brown, now 24 (dob: 6/25/1991) faces Murder 2nd Degree.*
According to court records, Stone was transported to an area hospital and in a dying declaration to a physician said two black males with “dreads” shot him. Stone died in surgery. Almost three years later, on Feb. 1, 2015, Craig L. Brown was in an auto accident near 43rd and Pittman Road in Kansas City. Police secured a pistol, a black Glock 19 semi-automatic, found in the vehicle’s glove box. In June 2015, detectives in the Kansas City Police Department crime lab test fired the gun taken from Brown’s vehicle and, according to the National Integrated Ballistic Information Network, it matched the gun used to kill Stone.
Detectives from Raytown and Kansas City police tracked down the purchaser of the handgun, who lived in Kansas City at the time of Stone’s fatal shooting, according to court records. She stated she purchased it for a boyfriend who is now in federal prison. Detectives interviewed that boyfriend. In November 2015, he identified Brown, known as CJ, as the person who shot Stone. He sold to Brown the gun purchased by his girlfriend in 2012, he told the detectives. Brown had dreads at that time.
Detectives, according to court records, located the owner of the vehicle passing Stone when he was shot. The vehicle in the video recovered from a nearby gas station was similar to a vehicle that had been stopped by Raytown and Kansas City police before and after the fatal shooting of Stone in Raytown. The vehicle belonged to Brown’s girlfriend. In an interview with Raytown and Kansas City detectives, Brown identified the vehicle in the BP gas station video that captured Stone’s shooting as his girlfriend’s vehicle. He also stated he often drove the vehicle then, and another witness corroborated for police that Brown often drove the vehicle around the time that Stone was killed.

Thursday evening (09/10/2015) just before 6:00 p.m. A plain clothed policeman heard the shots from across the street where there was also an ambulance crew. Officers and paramedics were on the scene almost immediately and Dean was very quickly removed to an area hospital, but was pronounced dead.
Police believe that there were groups of people that met in the parking lot that evening for what investigators believe was some sort of criminal enterprise. After some talking and visits back and forth between the various cars, the business ended abruptly with Dean being shot by someone from one of the other cars. Police have the car in which Dean arrived and have identified those that arrived in it. Another car was seen leaving the scene of the incident and was captured in this bit of surveillance video:
Raytown Police are at the scene of shooting in a parking lot at 66th Terr. and Raytown Rd. A few minutes before 6:00 p.m. this evening, a plain clothed officer in a nearby building radioed for patrol cars to meet him there where he had just heard the sound of shots. At about the same time, dispatchers were receiving a call of gunfire in the parking lot. The plain clothed officer radioed that a light grey or silver car with a “boxy” rear end appeared to be fleeing the scene and was last seen eastbound on 67th St. As Officers arrived it was reported that one man was shot and lying in the parking lot. That man was taken from the scene to an area hospital and pronounced dead shortly thereafter. The victim has not been identified.
Police say that it appears that the fleeing car, or one like it, had been in contact with the victim in the parking lot. It was reportedly occupied by at least three persons, and possibly more. Witnesses tell police that all of the persons involved appeared to be in their twenties, were black, and included both male and female. Any one with information about this, or any other crime are asked to call the TIPS Hotline at (816) 474-TIPS (8477).
