Maize police have positively identified the body found in the parking lot of a Maize apartment complex as that of Adam Sabri, missing since February.

Maize Police Chief Matt Jensby says the Sedgwick County coroner used dental records to identify Sabri. His cause of death is still inconclusive.

Jensby says the coroner is waiting on toxicology reports to come back, which could take up to 4-6 months.


A car found with a body in it at a Maize apartment complex this morning may be related to the disappearance of a former McPherson restaurant owner. 54 year old Adam Sabri was reported missing back in February after leaving Time Out Sports Bar and Grill in McPherson on the morning of February 9th.

Wichita TV stations reported that the discovery of a vehicle which was later confirmed as belonging to Sabri was made Monday morning at the Fieldstone Apartments, located at 5050 North Maize Road. Around 10:30 a.m., an apartment resident called police about a bad smell coming from a white sedan in the parking lot on the south side of the complex. When officers arrived, they found a body in the back of the car.

Because of the advance stage of decomposition, police estimate the body may have been there for months, and they have not made a positive identification. Officials are waiting on autopsy results to confirm the identity of the individual found.
