Miller County authorities have released some details following a death investigation on Village Marina Road in Lake Ozark and a subsequent manhunt for the person of interest.

Sheriff Louie Gregoire says deputies were called to the location late Monday morning and discovered a body and narcotics inside the home. With the assistance of other law enforcement agencies, a saturation was initiated in the area but was unsuccessful in locating the person of interest, 33-year-old Kendrick Terrell Cook, who lived at the residence with the unidentified victim but fled the scene before officers arrived.

As of Tuesday afternoon (2:15 P.M.), Cook is formally charged with possession of a controlled substance with no bond allowed.

A probable cause statement filed in Tuscumbia alleges that the victim and Cook had obtained cocaine and were going to party one last time together before they separated.

The Boone County Medical Examiner’s Office will conduct an autopsy to help determine an official cause of death.

In meantime, if you know the whereabouts of Cook, you are being asked to contact the Miller County Sheriff’s Office (573-369-2341) or local law enforcement.

 

ORIGINAL STORY

Miller County authorities are investigating a possible shooting death in Lake Ozark.

No details have been released by the sheriff’s office but a probable cause statement filed in Tuscumbia alleges that the unidentified victim and the suspect, identified as 33-year-old Kendrick Terrell Cook, had obtained cocaine and were going to party one last time together.

The call for a death investigation on Village Marina Road was then received by the sheriff’s office late Monday morning. By the time deputies arrived on the scene, Cook had fled from the scene and a manhunt ensued.

As of late this (Tuesday) morning, Cook has formally been charged with possession of a controlled substance but does not appear to be in custody. A warrant has been issued with no bond being allowed.

KRMS News will release further details when made available by the Miller County Sheriff’s Office.
