OVERLAND PARK, Kan. (AP) _ A 29-year-old suburban Kansas City man was among five people killed in a Denver bar that police say was set on fire to hide the crime.
Ross Richter, of Overland Park, and four other people died in the fire at Fero's Bar & Grill Wednesday. Denver police say three people have been arrested in connection with the deaths. He says robbery is the apparent motive.
Richter's father, James Richter, said Thursday at the family's home in Overland Park that Ross Richter was in Colorado working for the Bureau of Land Management, patrolling campgrounds and helping campers.
He says his son graduated from Kansas State University and always spent any spare time hiking and camping. James Richter says his son wasn't married, but had ``many, many friends.''
