Thornburg still wanted in Henry County

Kevin Lee Thornburg, age 32, is still wanted on an active felony warrant for a parole violation (original charge of 2nd degree burglary), which was issued on January 8, 2021, as well as other municipal warrants, and is still being considered a person of interest and needed for questioning regarding his knowledge into the April 23, 2021, shooting incident which occurred on SE 250 in the Coal area.

Information has been developed that leads local law enforcement to believe that Thornburg may have been transported to the Clinton area, after he showed up at a residence in western Henry County near the Bates County Line, asking for a ride due to his vehicle being stuck in a field. He was reportedly transported, then dropped off near the western edge of Clinton, where he exited a vehicle and walked into the timberline. 

Thornburg’s vehicle has since been located in the western portion of Henry County after the Sheriff’s Office drone was deployed and assisted with locating the vehicle during an aerial search. The vehicle was stuck in a field

and contained numerous personal items belonging to Thornburg. The location of the firearm used during the commission of these crimes is believed to be known and recovery efforts will be commencing in an attempt to locate it. Extreme caution is still being urged, if coming into contact with Thornburg for any reason. 

If anyone has any information regarding either of these on-going investigations or of Kevin Thornburg’s current location, please contact Henry County Central Communications @ (660) 885-5587 or your local law enforcement agency.
