HOUSTON – A week after a man walked up to Assistant Chief Deputy Clinton Greenwood’s assigned parking space at the Baytown Courthouse Annex and fired twice with a pistol striking him in the neck and bulletproof vest, a suspect has been named and that man had suicided the day after the murder.
Lt. Steve Dorris of Baytown P.D. named William Francis Kenny, 64, of West Houston, as prime suspect and “Investigators also learned that the weapon Mr. Kenny used to take his own life is consistent with the weapon used in the murder of Assistant Chief Deputy Clint Greenwood.”
Dorris said Keeny was tracked through surveillance video of his vehicle.
Sources say deputies had gone to the home of Kenny when he failed to show up for a court appearance on Monday, April 10.
They learned he had been in the morgue since April 4, when apparently he shot himself near Ben Taub Hospital. His body had recently been released to the family.
Kenny had a long history of grievance against law enforcement that began on St. Valentine’s Day 2012 when a relative of his ex-wife had made an emergency call indicating that Kenny acted in a threatening manner. The deputy that made the call never charged Kenny with a crime in the apparent domestic disturbance.
