From the desk of Bates County Coroner Greg Mullinax

On the evening of December 31, 2021 the Bates County Sheriff's Office responded to a location on NW Elm St. in Amsterdam on report of a shooting. On arrival officers found a male subject with apparent gunshot wounds.
The victim, Michael R. Strup, later died at at Kansas City Hospital as a result of the injuries sustained. As of today's date, I have received final autopsy and investigative reports. I have signed Mr. Strup's death certificate as Homicide.
Earlier this afternoon I hand delivered my report to the office of Bates County Prosecuting Attorney Mr. Hugh Jenkins.
