A manhunt is currently underway in Monroe County, Alabama, as a result of the case turning from one involving missing persons to one involving murder. Michael Thomas, 47, is the main target of the hunt because he is currently under suspicion for Kimberly Kidd’s murder.
The discovery of Kimberly Kidd’s corpse on Sunday in the Packer’s Bend neighborhood startled and devastated the locals. Kidd was also 47 years old. Kidd was shot in the head, according to Monroe County Sheriff Tom Boatwright, and her body was hidden under a mound of clothing in the bedroom of the house she lived with Thomas.
Kidd was last seen fighting with Thomas outside their Tait Loop house on Saturday night. Kidd vanished from sight after they entered the house together, and her body was found the next morning.
Considered armed and dangerous is Michael Thomas, who was just released from federal prison and is presently on probation for a firearms offense. Thomas is the target of a worldwide manhunt, with particular focus on the counties of Wilcox, Monroe, and Clarke, where he has relatives. The search is also being conducted by the US Marshals.
The public is being urged by Sheriff Boatwright and the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office to provide any information that may help in Thomas’s arrest.
