A 23-year-old man from Trenton suspected in the kidnapping of a Trenton teen has been found dead in a Wyandotte County, Kansas jail cell.
According to a Lieutenant in Wyandotte Co., Elijah McPike was found Tuesday night about 8:24 dead by his own hand. The officer says cells are checked every hour and McPike was last observed alive about 7:33 p.m.
McPike was arrested August 9th after a missing teen alert was issued by the Missouri State Highway Patrol in the abduction of Bailey Ann Summers, 15, who had an order of protection against McPike.
McPike was awaiting extradition back to Harrison Co. to face kidnapping charges.
An investigation into his death is underway.
