Platte City man found dead at home

A 44-year-old rural Platte City man was found dead at his home Monday evening.

Noel Weaver, a local pharmacist, was found at about 6:15 p.m. at his resdence.

Captain Frank Hunter of the Platte County Sheriff's Department said the death has been turned over to the department's investigations division, and as a result he could not release specifics about the scene. He said the incident at this time has been classified only as a "dead body found" at the home, located at 19100 Edlin Ave., Platte City.

Hunter said a sheriff's department incident report would be available for public review later this week.

Weaver worked as a pharmacist for Miller's Professional Pharmacy in Platte City and various Kansas City Wal-Marts. He was also active in the Platte City community as a coach for little league baseball.

Weaver is survived by his wife, Susan, of the home; one son, Brett, and one daughter, Lindsay, both of the home. He is also survived by his parents, Henry F. and LaVaughn Weaver of Kansas City, Mo.; two brothers, Terry of Lakewood, Co.; and Kenneth Weaver of Kansas City; and one sister, Lisa Kennedy of Thousand Oaks, Ca.
