KC Lawyer Facing “Death By Forgery” In Father’s Death

A Kansas City lawyer is accused of "death by forgery" in a case that is being reexamined.

According to reports, Susan Van Note was indicted Friday on forgery charges related to a 2010 murder in Camden County.

Susan was charged in connection with the 2010 death of her 67-year-old father, where prosecutors said she forged the documents that later ended his life.  She is also charged with first-degree murder in the case.

Nearly two years ago in October 2010, the wealthy William Van Note was found shot and stabbed along with his longtime companion, Sharon Dickson, who was shot, in his house. Dickson, 59, was dead, but William was taken to a Boone County Hospital where he later died after medical professional followed directions on the papers officials said Susan forged.

A second couple have been charged in connection with the case. A former classmate and her spouse acted as witnesses to the forged documents and were indicted on felony forgery and second-degree murder charges.

All defendants pleaded not guilty Friday in court. Susan Van Note is being held on a $1 million cash bond. So far, she has not been charged in her father's girlfriend's death.
