    Elderly man went from 'not a suspect' to charged with Brookside murder. Here's how
    April 11, 2018 05:29 PM

    David Jungerman stood in the crosshairs of police within hours after Brookside attorney Tom Pickert was gunned down in front of his home on Oct. 25.

    Police quickly learned that Jungerman had threatened Pickert, a personal injury attorney who won a $5.75 million civil judgment against him for a client, according to court documents. Jungerman was served with paperwork to seize his property the day before the killing.

    But after several days of investigation, the case seemed to grow cold. No arrest followed. In November, Kansas City police publicly said Jungerman was not a suspect.

    By last month, police uncovered two major pieces of evidence: a .17-caliber bullet similar to the one that killed Pickert, and an audio recorder on which Jungerman accidentally taped himself talking about the shooting.
    The lawsuit concerned one of four men Jungerman acknowledged shooting in 2012.

    As Pickert gathered his belongings in court the day of the verdict, Jungerman approached him in an aggressive manner. Pickert, according to court records, thought Jungerman was going to yell or punch him but instead said, “None of this matters. I have 186 guns. I did it once before. I will do it again. You can’t touch me.”

    A few days after Pickert was killed, a witness told police, Jungerman answered his phone by saying, “Murder Inc., this is David.”

    Not surprising. This also good to show that our police department will lie to the public starting that somebody is not a suspect and/or had been cleared of a crime. They had a press report stating that they basically cleared him of this even though they knew he did it or had it done, shortly after he was killed.

    Does a .17 caliber not have much kick back or something? :eek: I'm surprised he could do it, mentally or physically!

    .17 is mostly used to varmint hunt. People call them rat killers, mostly that I have heard.

    Mentally, that guy is a whackadoo, so I would say nearly anything could happen. He's been charged with shooting a multiple people on his properties. In fact, that is what started his hatred for the attorney he killed. He shot at somebody that was supposedly breaking into one of his properties with the same caliber gun and severely injured his leg and this attorney got him a settlement for it.

    David Jungerman, the 80-year-old Raytown man accused of killing Kansas City attorney Tom Pickert, pleaded not guilty Thursday in Jackson County Circuit Court.

    And he will continue to maintain his innocence, Jungerman's attorney, Dan Ross, said outside the courthouse after the brief arraignment hearing.

    "There will never be a plea in this case other than not guilty, and that was entered today and it will be entered at the next appearance and every appearance thereafter," Ross said.

    Facing murder charge and lawsuit, millionaire’s assets held by KC police commissioner

    Lawyers for an 80-year-old millionaire accused in the shooting death of an attorney are opposing a judge’s order putting the suspect’s assets under the control of a Kansas City police commissioner.

    David G. Jungerman is charged with murder in the Oct. 25 killing of attorney Tom Pickert in Brookside. He’s also facing a wrongful death lawsuit.

    As part of the lawsuit, Jungerman’s assets have been placed in a receivership controlled by Leland Shurin, an attorney who is also vice president of the Kansas City Board of Police Commissioners. That’s the governing body of the Kansas City Police Department — the same agency that investigated Jungerman in the murder case.

    Nicole Forsythe, an attorney representing Jungerman in the civil matter, said the appointment of Shurin represents a conflict of interest because of Shurin’s role with the police department.

    The lawsuit Pickert won against Jungerman concerned a homeless man Jungerman had shot and injured at his warehouse in Kansas City’s Northeast neighborhood.

    While facing the $5.75 million civil judgment, Jungerman allegedly made a series of bank transfers and withdrawals totaling about $10 million.

    Some of the money he deposited into his daughter’s bank account. Other funds he withdrew in the form of cashier’s checks. And he transferred his Raytown home and other property to his daughter.
