A man who is accused of the murder of a woman in Fort Worth has also been accused of a Plano killing after a woman disappeared before her body was found in a Dallas lake.
Plano Police Department released the details of an arrest affidavit issued for Reginald Kimbro, 23, for the capital murder of 36-year-old Megan Getrum, 36.
Kimbro was held in the Tarrant County Jail. He was charged with the capital murder of Molly Matheson, 22.
Matheson was found sexually assaulted and strangled in her home near the TCU campus on April 10. Her family said Matheson knew Kimbro. Police said DNA linked to Kimbro was linked to the investigations.
Fort Worth police spoke to Kimbo but did not have enough money to make an arrest. They say he killed again later.
Police are looking at Kimbo in connection with multiple sexual assault cases. Matheson’s family said that had two prior investigations not collapsed, their daughter might be alive today.
Investigators said Megan Getrum was last seen alive at the Arbor Hills Nature Preserve in Plano on April 14 before disappearing. Her body was recovered from Lake Ray Hubbard the next day.
Police say they started to investigate Kimbro as a suspect after witnesses at the Arbor Hills Nature Preserve told police they saw him at the preserve the night Getrum disappeared, reported KVUE.
Kimbro reportedly told police he was looking for a lost cell phone. Police said plates on his car were linked to him and it was the same vehicle under investigation for the murder of Matheson.
Police documents say Getrum was sexually assaulted and killed by blunt force trauma, compression of her neck, as well as drowning.
Plano Police Department said they had enough evidence to name Kimbro as a suspect in Getrum’s death. He has been charged with capital murder. Kimbro’s total bond has now increased to more than $1 million.
