Corpse found now revealed to be that of missing drug dealer Kenneth Henson
OWINGS MILLS, MD. — The dead body of a missing drug dealer turned up in October, and now police say that the body is that of missing drug dealer Kenneth Henson. Just like the Mafia and the Mexican drug cartels, those involved in the tough competition of drug sales often wind up shot, winged, wounded and dead.
Baltimore County Police reports that the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner has identified the remains found on October 11 in the area of Owings Mills Boulevard and Gwynnbrook Avenue in Owings Mills, Md., as the remains of 38-year-old Kenneth Henson of 1600 block of Kirkwood Road.
The autopsy has ruled that the cause of death was multiple injuries, and the manner of death was determined to be a case of homicide.
In May, Kenneth Henson was reported missing from his home in the 600 block of Kirkwood Road.
On October 11, 2015, at 9:25 a.m., police were called to the area of Owings Mills and Gwynnbrook Avenue after a couple of people taking a walk through a wooded area discovered what appeared to be a human skull. Police came back to search the area three more times with Towson University students in a Forensic Science group along with Bay Area and Chesapeake Search and Rescue Dogs. Additional human remains were found during those searches.
The remains were taken to the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner where they were positively identified as Kenneth Henson.
This incident has now shifted from a missing person investigation to a homicide investigation. Homicide detectives need the public’s assistance in gathering information that will assist in identifying the person responsible for killing Kenneth Henson.
Anyone with information on this incident or Kenneth Henson is asked to call Baltimore County Police at 410-307-2020 or Metro Crime Stoppers at 1-866-7LOCKUP. Callers to Metro Crime Stoppers can remain anonymous.
