Vital Statistics at Time of Disappearance
Details of Disappearance
Greene-Medina's husband, Michael, told authorities that his wife was last seen walking to a convenience store in Aurora, Colorado at approximately 10:30 PM on October 29, 1996. The store was located at the corner of Buckley Road and Mississippi Avenue near her family's Tower Road residence. Her husband said Greene-Medina never arrived home that evening and has not been seen again. Medina has claimed that Kimmy walked to a gas station for cigarettes, but he also has claimed she went there to make a phone call. He did not report his wife as a missing person until October 31, 1996, two days after she disappeared.
There has not been any activity within Greene-Medina's bank accounts or on her Social Security number since she was last seen. Left behind were her personal belongings, although her purse has yet to be found. Her $800 paycheck has never been picked up from the job she held as a dispatcher for SuperShuttle at Denver International Airport.In May 2005, Michael was arrested on suspicion of murdering his 16-month old son, whom he fathered with his current wife. He was spotted trying to hide his son's lifeless body near a sewage lagoon. He is serving a 48-year prison sentence for killing his 16-month-old son, Degan. Medina had originally been charged with first-degree murder. He ultimately pleaded guilty to felony child abuse causing death.
Authorities said Kimberly had asked for a divorce a week before she disappeared. Medina has said he had nothing to do with Kimberly's disappearance, and that she probably ran away. Her family claimed it was very uncharacteristic of her to leave without telling anyone where she was going, especially leaving behind her daughters, then aged 2 and 3.
Medina allegedly told his second wife, that he had beaten Kimberly with a bat and buried her in Elbert County. Bad weather and other factors subsequently changed the area and the body was never found. Some items believed to belong to Kimberly were found in that area, however.
