Police in Missouri have identified the dismembered body found buried on the property of a sex abuse suspect this week as a 32-year-old Texas woman who had been missing since October 2020, with court records alleging that she was choked to death and then cut up with a chainsaw as part of a sexual fantasy.
Investigators were led on Wednesday to the remains of Kensie Aubry, from Pearland, Texas, by a teenage girl who accused the owner of the property near Grain Valley of molesting her.
The teenager told police she learned that 40-year-old Michael Hendricks had killed a woman and hidden her body. She also was shown photos of a woman’s dismembered body, the girl told investigators.
Independence police announced on Thursday that the remains were positively identified as Aubry, who was reported missing in October 2020.
They found the remains on the property in the 4000 block of South Buckner-Tarsney Road near Grain Valley.Insurance Loans Mortgage Attorney Credit Lawyer
