The remains of 32-year old Kensie Aubry, the subject of a missing person investigation out of Independence, was recovered from a residence at the 4000 block of South Buckner Tarsney Road in unincorporated Grain Valley.
A large police presence, including the Independence Police Department, FBI, Jackson County Sheriff’s Office, and Grandview Police Department, searched the residential property in the morning hours of July 14th. Grain Valley Police Chief James Beale confirmed his department was not involved in assisting in the search. The property is owned by Michael J. Hendricks and his spouse.
Hendricks was charged in May with a series of felonies, including two counts of enticement of a child less than 15 years old, two charges of first-degree sexual misconduct, a third degree count of child molestation involving a child less than 14 years old, one count of tampering with physical evidence and three counts of tampering with a victim in a felony prosecution.
Charges have yet to be filed related to Aubry’s death.
