Saw in kc Missouri early july 2017. Wings seem too short for its body.

Based on this BugGuide image, we believe your Cockroach may be an Oriental Cockroach. According to BugGuide: “Flightless. Males have wings covering 3/4 of their body length; females have only rudimentary wing stubs.” Based on this image from our archives, we would not rule out that this is a female Turkestan Cockroach, though BugGuide does not list any Missouri sightings.
