KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — The family of a man whose body sat in a Kansas City International Airport parking lot for months is suing the company responsible for monitoring vehicles in the lot.
Randy Potter’s widow and children sued SP+ Corp. and two of its employees Friday. The lawsuit accuses the Delaware-based company of causing the family “extreme trauma and emotional distress.”
Airport police found Potter’s body in September in a pickup truck, when someone called to report a bad smell. Potter’s parking pass was dated Jan. 17. Police said it appeared Potter committed suicide.
The lawsuit says the family provided SP+ employees a description of Potter’s truck and license plate about a week after he disappeared and were assured that if Potter’s truck were in the lot, it would soon be found.
SP+ attorney Jan Paul Miller said the company would be “vigorously defending the suit.”
