Alleged crime ring leader to plead guilty

An alleged Kansas City crime ring leader named Wandale J. Fulton faces charges of identity theft, arson for profit. It took years for local, state and federal investigators to build their case. Plus, how 20-somethings in the city are coping with yet another round of COVID closures.

State and federal investigators say it took years to put together the case against Wandale J. Fulton. Now the alleged crime ring leader will plead guilty in a Kansas City federal court on charges of identity theft, auto-title fraud and arson for profit. KCUR's Lisa Rodriguez speaks to morning host Sam Zeff, who broke this story.

As a new surge in the pandemic disrupts life, people between the ages of 18 and 29 are weary of virtual school, lost jobs and isolation. KCUR’s Laura Ziegler took a weekend walk around midtown Kansas City and found that 20-somethings are paying attention to the science while trying to go on about their lives.
