“He had been to war and back, and to die because someone was angry?” ~ Cody’s Mother
Cody Harter did a tour in Iraq and also served in Qatar. He also assisted with hurricane relief in Houston and Puerto Rico.
Cody M. Harter, 23, was fatally stabbed on Saturday on an interstate roadside in Lee’s Summit, Missouri, a Kansas City suburb. Several witnesses said Harter had his hands in the air, and had backed away during the confrontation.
Witnesses told police they saw another vehicle stopped in front of Harter’s truck, and that Harter and another person were arguing outside of that vehicle before the stabbing.
“The witnesses have told us that it looked like they were arguing, You could tell by their body language there was an altercation.”
Moments later, a wounded Harter was then seen staggering into traffic, eventually finding the arms of a good Samaritan who held him and prayed with him until his dying breath, according to Cody Harter’s mother.
The scumbag who stabbed the 23- year-old is already a convicted felon who was convicted of murder. He is being held on a $250,000 bond.
Nicholas M. Webb, 58, of Pleasant Hill, Missouri, was taken into custody on Wednesday after police identified him as a suspect, authorities said. Webb has been charged with second-degree murder, which is a felony, and armed criminal action.
Officials said in a press conference Thursday that Webb was previously sentenced to 35 years in prison in 1981 for second-degree murder but was released after about 15 years because the “85 percent rule did not exist yet.”
“We are here because such an innocent life was taken through such a horrendous way, and none of us have an answer as to why. We couldn’t possibly give that to you, not one that would make any sense because there’s no reason that this should’ve ended this way, with this young man dying, especially when his hands were up in a position of surrender.” ~ Jackson County, Missouri Prosecutor Jean Peters Baker
It is heart breaking that such a young life was snuffed out because of a truly evil scumbag took his life.
Our hearts and prayers go out to Cody’s family and to the Law Enforcement agencies who worked diligently to capture the scumbag.

In another violent altercation in Kansas City earlier this month that claimed the life of a 23-year-old male, as RWT Reported, the Police are still investigating and seeking the public’s help.
Tuesday morning a black male in a blue hoody approached the men at the work site, he approached Porter and asked for a cigarette. Porter, who doesn’t smoke, told the man he couldn’t help him.
The community should be outraged and demanding justice, most instead hide from the truth. This young man was working and these men and women who do this job have to work extremely hard to provide the civilians with electricity. I truly hope people have had enough of this and start demanding justice and the right to open carry.
The passer-by “walked away and then turned around and shot him,” police told Porter’s mother, Lindy Porter.
