UPDATE: Kendrick Cook is in custody and being held in the Miller County Jail. Cook was previously charged at the time of the death investigation on a no-bond drug charge. Cook was also wanted in Miller County on a $2,000 bond for failure to appear in court on a driving charge.

A second person was also taken into custody Friday night on different charges including hindering prosecution of a felony. According to the sheriff’s office, that case is not connected to the Cook case.

Cook was taken into custody without further incident and no information is being released other than the death investigation continues. KRMS News will pass along further details when released by the Miller County Sheriff’s Office.



The search for a person of interest in the death earlier this week of a Lake Ozark-area woman continues.

Miller County Deputies responded late Monday morning to the apartment on Village Marina Road for a death investigation and discovered the body of a young woman and suspected cocaine in the residence.

Investigation at the scene revealed that 33-year-old Kendrick Terrell Cook had fled the scene before deputies arrived and has been named as the person of interest.

A probable cause statement indicates that Cook and the unidentified deceased woman were going to party one more time before they separated.

Cook has since been charged with one count of possession of a controlled substance.

In the meantime, the Miller County Sheriff’s Office is asking the public for any information on the whereabouts of Cook.
