It took a few days, but authorities have finally identified three people killed in an apartment fire in Independence last Sunday.
Officials used dental records, among other things, to identify Ronald Beck Sr., 60, Gerardo Perez, 44, and Humberto Vanegas, 35.
Beck was a Vietnam War veteran. A friend said Beck received several commendations after being shot twice.
