Thus, every week, with the help of friends and other kind people, Jamie and her husband organize search parties in the hope of finding out what happened to the young woman. Last week, Runions’s father and several volunteers discovered the decomposing body of a 21-year-old male, whom the authorities believe to be missing since November 2016.
The body belongs to Brandon Herrings, and it was discovered in a creek situated at Lewis Road and 67th. Authorities have been unable to identify the second, but both cases are being treated as homicides. In addition, the police officials cannot rule out yet the possible connection between the two bodies and Jessica Runions, taking into account that the three individuals went missing around the same time.
According to Jessica’s family, the woman was declared missing back in September 2016. The woman was last seen leaving a house party, hosted by one of her friends. The woman was driving a 2012 Chevrolet Equinox at the time she vanished without a trace.
Eyewitnesses declared that the woman was last seen leaving the party with 28-year-old Kylr Yust. Initially, several state agencies, including the Murder Squad, KCPD volunteers, and K9 squads, investigated an abandoned golf course located near 163rd Street and I-49, but no clues were found.
On the 9th of September, the police officials discovered Jessica Runions’s car in a remote area. The vehicle has been deliberately burned. Mr. Yust, the man with whom Jessica was last seen was leaving the party, was later taken into custody and charged with vehicle arson. Yust was also the subject of police’s scrutiny several years ago, being investigated for the disappearance of Kara Kopetsky, a 17-year-old adolescent, who went missing in 2007.
For now, the Runions family continues to search for the missing Missouri woman with the help of friends and kind volunteers. If you have any information regarding Jessica Runion’s whereabouts, you are asked to contact immediately the TIPS Hotline or Kansas’s Missing Persons Unit.
