Authorities are attempting to link a missing persons report filed by family members of a man from Blue Springs, his dark colored SUV that had been in the parking lot of Silver Dollar City since about noon Sunday and the fatal crash the same day.
Raymond Clifford Cook, 45, who was reported missing and possibly suicidal on October 9th, apparently hanged himself in a wooded area about a quarter mile away from the amusement park.
According to online court records, Carol Leann Cook filed several orders of protection against Raymond Cook on October 12th in Jackson County.

The siblings, who were the only children of Jeff and Kim Nye, were laid to rest today at Eastlawn Cemetery in Springfield.
