Missouri man with 'body count' tattoo charged in deadly shooting

A Missouri man facing multiple charges in connection to a deadly shooting last month allegedly claimed to have kept a mark to memorialize his murders that anyone could see --  a "body count" tattoo on his face.

The Jackson County Prosecutor's Office said in a news release that Jonathan S. Lowrey, 25, was charged Monday with second-degree murder, armed criminal action and tampering with a motor vehicle in connection with shooting death of Joseph Corum on March 28 in Kansas City.

A witness reported she was inside the home when she heard Corum yelling outside before hearing a "loud vehicle" and gunshot. She heard another gunshot before the vehicle drove away, officials said.
