Cody Harter, 23, was fatally stabbed in the chest Saturday around 7:30 p.m. near the junction of Missouri 291 and Interstate 470.

According to police, emergency crews were called to the area of northbound 291 Hwy. near the I-470 merger around 7:30 p.m. on the report of a man stumbling through traffic.

Detectives interviewed witnesses who saw a possible road rage incident. Drivers said they saw two men arguing outside their vehicles on the highway, with the suspect's vehicle parked in front of Harter's truck in traffic. The suspect fled the scene in their own vehicle.

"We think it's truly just one of those stupid incidents of road rage where someone lost their temper and did something really stupid", said Sgt. Chris Depue, a spokesperson for Lee's Summit Police Department, during a Sunday press conference.

"I want to thank all the people that stopped and held his hand and prayed with him", Harter's mother said.

Harter was in his final semester at Missouri Western State University in St. Joseph to earn a degree in engineering technology.

This is the victim's 2003 Chevrolet Silverado extended cab Z71 edition.

"I can only imagine that someone was upset because he wasn't going fast enough", Kerrie Harter, the victim's mother, said, according to the Star. The suspect remains on the run and Harter's mother asked anyone with information on her son's death to come forward in the Sunday press conference.

"He was the love of my life", she said. He knew kindness, and now we know pain and loss. Please call and send us a message ... Police believe that the stabbing happened after what appeared to be a roadside argument.

Cody M. Harter had done tours in Iraq and Qatar, and as a member of the Missouri Air National Guard, he helped with hurricane relief in Houston and Puerto Rico. Let's uncover who did this act, so you're not sitting if it's your boy or girl.

Anyone who may have been in the area and seen something to call Lee's Summit Police at 816-969-7390.
