(CMR) Kenniel Thompson, wanted since last week Tuesday for stabbing his ex-wife is said to have been found this afternoon. A body was discovered non-responsive off Beckz Close shortly after 4:30 pm and Fire Department and police were quickly on the scene.
Sources familiar with the scene indicate that he was found in the area close to the Owen Roberts International Airport after an apparent suicide by hanging.
This is a developing story and will be updated once more information.
Thompson stabbed his estranged wife multiple times in her head while she was at work off Shedden Road. His wife worked for a local security company. It is understood that the two parties were going through a divorce and it was close to being finalized.
CMR sources shared that Thompson had previously shared with them he was going to kill her and then kill himself after his right to work immigration papers were revoked.
Exclusive CMR sources indicate that Thompson took his life almost immediately after the assault; which apparently he believed would have killed his ex. When his body was found it had already begun decomposing.
