The investigation in Excelsior Springs remains active, no new information released

EXCELSIOR SPRINGS, Mo. (KCTV) — The investigation into a crime scene in Excelsior Springs continued Saturday, but no further developments were announced.

A reported kidnapping and sexual assault investigation was launched Friday after a woman began knocking on doors just before 7:45 a.m. Friday morning. She told witnesses she had run away from a home in the city.

A man was taken into custody after the investigation began in the 300 block of Old Orchard St.

Timothy Haslett Jr. was charged with first degree rape, first degree kidnapping and second degree assault.

In a statement Saturday, the Excelsior Springs Police Department said they have “numerous items” to investigate at the home.

“There’s a lot of stuff in the residence that needs to be sorted through, and it’s a slow, painstaking process,” Police Chief Greg Dull said. “We are very grateful for the assistance we have received from the Kansas City Police Department’s Crime Scene Investigation Unit. We are also very grateful for the support we have received from the Excelsior Springs community.”

The chief said the investigation is still active and additional charges may be forthcoming if evidence of additional crimes is found.
