LEXINGTON — Authorities say they have identified additional victims and arrested a sixth adult in a child sex abuse case in western Missouri.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol says the suspect arrested Thursday night is a 55-year-old Kansas City man not related to the other five defendants. He is described as an "associate" of the others, who include a 77-year-old man and his four adult sons.
