UPDATE: Henson was murdered and his corpse spread around wooded area
BALTIMORE, MD. — Baltimore County Police are continuing to search for 37-year-old Kenneth Damont Henson of 1648 Kirkwood Road, Baltimore, Md. Detectives now suspect that after spending much of the last two decades dealing drugs or twiddling his thumbs in prison, he is the victim of foul play.
Police say that Henson was last seen in the Walbrook Junction section of Baltimore City on May 2, 2015 around 2 p.m. His vehicle, a 2007 Black Dodge Charger SRT8, was later found in the 2800 block of Rosalind Avenue near the intersection with Nurton Street. Detectives have learned that he was supposed to meet an unknown person at Leon Day Park sometime that afternoon. There has been no contact with him since then. Given his history, Henson was likely rendezvousing for a drug deal.
Police say that Henson is also known to frequent the area of Reisterstown Road and Virginia Avenue; which is likely an area high in crime and drug dealing.
Anyone with information on Kenneth Damont Henson is asked to call police at 410-307-2020 or Metro Crime Stoppers at 1-866-7LOCKUP.
Henson might be celebrating his latest victory over police as the Baltimore City States Attorney Marilyn Mosby dropped his charge of driving while his license was suspended on Jan. 13, 2015. He had been ticketed on Oct. 9, 2014 by the Baltimore Police Special Operations Section. Another ticket received the same day was dumped by Mosby on Feb. 25, 2015.
The child support folks in Baltimore are looking for him to appear for trial in Baltimore Circuit Court on June 3, 2015 to bring some cash from his drug dealing adventures or go to jail.
Charges of possession with the intent to sell drugs were brought against him on July 10, 2011 and forwarded to Baltimore City Circuit Court.
Henson was facing trial in Circuit Court on the distribution charges until Feb. 29, 2012 when the Baltimore City States Attorney put the charges on the Stet Docket while Henson’s co-defendant was sentenced to five years in prison (with all but 30 days suspended). Such light treatment of serious drug charges which could have resulted in hard time indicates that one or both of these men gave police information on other drug dealers. Such ‘rolling over’ on competitors could be a reason Henson is missing.
Other criminal charges for possession with the intent to sell drugs were dropped in Baltimore City Circuit Court on Feb. 28, 2012. Court records show that Henson uses the following alias identities: Ronald William, Kenneth Damont Henson, Kevin Lamont Henson and another address, that of 716 North Avenue in Baltimore, Md.
Henson was charged with driving without a driver’s permit on March 15, 2011 making him simply an “undocumented driver”, in the Baltimore County District Court. On June 16, 2011, the Baltimore County States Attorney dumped the charge. The date of this offense indicates that Henson didn’t serve out the full ten years of the prison term he was sentenced to in 2004. But there was a significant gap in his criminal record for many years indicating he was either in a coma or in prison. Don’t place a bet that he had been working the straight and narrow.
Henson was charged with possession with the intent to sell drugs on April 22, 2011 by Baltimore City Police Officers Vincent M. Lash, Terry M. Bell, Matthew A. Herman, Brandon Oavery and Carl Cicchetti.
Henson was charged with selling drugs on March 11, 2003 in Baltimore City District Court and the case was sent on to Circuit Court.
Henson was charged on Aug. 4, 2003 with dealing drugs in the Baltimore City Circuit Court. On Oct. 12, 2004 he entered a guilty plea, thereby once again earning the label of “drug dealer”. He was sentenced to ten years in prison.
Henson was charged with possession and dealing of drugs on June 19, 2002 and on Oct. 25, 2002 the Baltimore City States Attorney put the charges on the Stet Docket.
Henson was charged on July 19, 2001 in Baltimore City District Court with attempted first degree murder, assault, and on Aug. 17, 2001 the charged were dropped by the Baltimore City States Attorney.
