Circumstances of Disappearance

Kimberly was last seen with her 11 year daughter, Haleigh Culwell, on June 21, 2007. She was reported missing by her co-workers at Cloverdale Manor nursing home. Kimberly's truck was found near the log home she and her husband were building on their rural property, which is down a dirt road about a mile off a Jackson County highway. Kimberly's husband said the last time he saw his wife and stepdaughter he gave them $20,000 and they left his house after loading their belongings in a white van. Family says she did not own a white van.

Nearly 10 years earlier, the body of Barry Whitton's first wife, Michelle Townsend Whitton, was found in a shallow grave covered by rocks in the hills of a neighboring town. Police never made an arrest in that case or disclosed how she was killed. Barry Whitton told authorities she failed to return home after going to a fast-food restaurant the previous month.
