Man arrested in connection to McPherson death released

McPHERSON, Kan. (AP) — A McPherson man who was arrested in connection to the death of another man has been released without charges.

McPherson County Attorney David Page said Tuesday that he has determined no foul play was involved in the death of 64-year-old Kinley Cobb.

On April 26, officers responded to a report of intoxicated people and found Cobb seriously injured. He was transported to McPherson Hospital and later a Wichita hospital, where he eventually died.

Page says Cobb was found on the sidewalk the night of his death, but he would not say how Cobb died.

The suspect was eventually arrested on April 29. McPherson police said in a news release that “critical new information” leading to “dismissed charges” wasn’t received until Monday. Police officials say they are not authorized to release any information regarding the case.
