Dad Takes Daughter With Him To Craigslist Meet-Up, Ends Up Being Biggest Mistake Of His Life

A typically busy strip mall in the town of Raytown, MO quickly turned into a crime scene when bullets rang out. According to Fox 4 KC, 39-year-old Jake Brantner was shot and killed, right in front of his 10-year-old daughter.

There were reportedly several people in the parking lot of the strip mall at the time of the shooting, but the assailant remains unidentified. No leads or motives have come to light either, but a nearby witness explained that she heard several gunshots. Once it was all clear, she would drive over to the scene where they were coming from. She would find the victim on the ground, and a frightened little girl inside of a car.

“I asked her to unroll the window and she did. I asked if she was ok, she was, she was asking for her dad. I didn’t want to say anything about her dad because from where she was sitting I didn’t think she could see him laying there,” the unidentified witness said.

Brantner has been described as a self-employed family man, and a former friend and neighbor was among those that expressed concern for the victim’s daughter.

“Just shocking and I feel really bad for this little girl and her family. I think it will be with her the rest of her life. It’s going to be, she is going to be traumatized the rest of her life,” said Daniel Holdcroft.
