Highway Patrol looking for victims or witnesses of sexual assault at the Lake

Following the recent arrest of a Kansas couple, the Missouri State Highway Patrol’s Division of Drug and Crime Control is seeking information for an ongoing sexual assault investigation in the Lake of the Ozarks area. In January, 41 year old Carl Mort, and 39 year old Cassandra Wedeking of Overland Park, Kansas, were formally charged by the Morgan County Prosecuting Attorney with 1st degree rape, four counts of sodomy, and drug charges. Authorities say the suspects both male and female, may have befriended the victims, providing them with alcohol and drugs before or after taking them to a boat and sexually assaulting them. The ongoing investigation encompasses the entire Lake of the Ozarks region, including Camden, Miller and Morgan County. If you are a victim, a possible witness, or have information contact the Troop F at telephone number 573-526-6329, ext. 3632.
