Missing Person - Kimberly Medina

Beloved Daughter of John and Jennifer Greene, Loving Mother of Nekka and Marissa
This is a homepage for a grieving father who yearns for just one miracle. He wants to know what happened to his daughter, Kimberly Diane Greene Medina. She was only 19 years old, married, and the loving mother of her two beautiful young daughters, Nekka and Marissa, aged 3 and 2 at the time of her disappearance. Her sisters, Kendra and Stephanie, and brothers, Joseph, Kevin and Brendan, miss her dearly.

What happened to Kimmy?
Kimberly disappeared on a cold night in late October 1996. The extensive search for her has provided few leads for police and left little hope for her father.

"Kimmy should not be a missing person." says John Greene, Kimberly's father. "She has so many people out there who love her."

"She would never have left her two little girls." says Jennifer Greene, Kimberly's stepmother. "She loved them dearly."

Kimmy vanished October 29, 1996. Her husband reported her missing two days later, saying her destination had been a convenience store at the corner of Buckley and Mississipi in Aurora, Colorado. No one has seen or heard from her since.

"We will never give up looking for her. It has been 6 1/2 years now, but she is worth ever minute we search for her. She was so dear to me." says Kimmy's "Aunt Stephi", Stephanie O'Bryan.

The Search
Kimmy's frantic family, friends and co-workers have distributed thousands of flyers around Colorado and the surrounding states, as well as in truckstops across the country. Her disappearance has been featured three times on the "Leeza Show" and several stories have been written in local newspapers in the Denver metropolitan area. Her family has held press conferences pleading for people to come forward if they have any information about her disappearance. They have searched mine shafts, manholes, abandoned missile sights, fields, pastures, and many other places all over the state....all to no avail. They have contacted friends of Kimmy's back to as early as elementary school, and co-workers of hers at jobs she held in the past. No one has heard from her or seen her. There has been no activity on her social security number nor any activity on her driver's license. Her paycheck remains unclaimed at her place of work.

At the time of her disappearance, Kimberly was 5'5" with light brown shoulder-length hair, the most beautiful big blue eyes and long dark eyelashes, and weighed approximately 130 lbs.

"If anyone knows anything about my daughter's disappearance, please, I beg of you, come forward and end this terrible nightmare!" pleads John.

If anyone has any information regarding the disappearance of Kimberly Diane Greene Medina, please contact the Aurora Police Department at (303) 739-6127.

Kimberly Diane Greene - Medina
Missing since October 29, 1996 from Aurora, Colorado
Classification: Endangered Missing

Vital Statistics

Date Of Birth: July 30, 1977
Age at Time of Disappearance: 19 years old
Height and Weight at Time of Disappearance: 5'5"; 130-150 lbs.
Distinguishing Characteristics: White female. Light brown shoulder-length hair; blue eyes; medium complexion.
Clothing: Maroon sweatshirt, blue jeans, ocean blue work jacket with Super Shuttle in yellow lettering and tan hiking boots.
AKA: Kimmy


Circumstances of Disappearance
Greene - Medina was last seen in Aurora, Colorado on October 29, 1996.

Her husband indicated that she had left her residence on foot to go to a local convenience store located at Mississippi and Buckley Road, in Aurora, Colorado.

Kimmy was married and had two children at time of her disappearance, and worked hard as a dispatcher for Super Shuttle. But her husband, Mike Medina, was abusive. Kimberly asked for a divorce one week before she disappeared, October 29, 1996. Her husband indicated that Kimberly left on foot to go to a local convenience store located at Mississippi and Buckley Rd., and never returned. Her husband reported her missing on October 31.

Bloodhound Yogi and his handler, Detective Bill Oliver, traced Kimberly's scent from the couple's apartment at 1082 S. Yampa (near Buckley Field) to a Total Gas Station about a mile away and then to E. Colfax and I-225. Sgt Stephen Patrick of the Aurora Police Department was the first investigator assigned to the case. "Kimmy should not be a missing person; there has been nothing but inconsistencies to Mike's stories since her disappearance." says Kimberly's father.

A psychic gave Kimmy's family clues that led to discovery of personal effects that may have been Kimmy's at a farm field 20 miles east of Aurora near the Deer Creek exit off Interstate 70. A farmer there recalled seeing a vehicle leaving the field that fit the description of Mike Medina's vehicle.

Kimmy's frantic family, friends and co-workers have distributed thousands of flyers around Colorado and the surrounding states, as well as in truckstops across the country. Her disappearance has been featured three times on the Leeza Show and several stories have been written in local newspapers in the Denver metropolitan area.

Her family has held press conferences pleading for people to come forward if they have any information about her disappearance. They have searched mine shafts, manholes, abandoned missile sights, fields, pastures, and many other places all over the state....all to no avail. They have contacted friends of Kimmy's back to as early as elementary school, and co-workers of hers at jobs she held in the past.

No one has heard from her or seen her. There has been no activity on her social security number nor any activity on her driver's license. Her paycheck remains unclaimed at her place of work.
In May of 2005, deputies located the body of 16-month-old Degan Medina. Degan was the son of Mike Medina and his current wife. Authorities arrested 34-year-old Michael Jim Medina a few hours later, after another report that he'd threatened his current wife and children. Michael Medina is being held without bond in Del Norte for investigation of first-degree murder in the boy's death.
Medina has said he had nothing to do with Kimberly's disappearance, and that she probably ran away.

Dad suspects abusive husband in shuttle dispatcher's 1996 disappearance

Kimberly Diane Greene-Medina, 19, was born July 30, 1977. She married young, loved her girls' Nekka, 3, and Marissa, 2 and worked hard as a dispatcher for Super Shuttle. But her husband, Mike Medina, was abusive. Kimberly asked for a divorce one week before she disappeared, October 29, 1996. Her husband indicated that Kimberly left on foot to go to a local convenience store located at Mississippi and Buckley Rd., and never returned. She was not reported missing until October 31.

Bloodhound Yogi and his handler, Detective Bill Oliver, traced Kimberly's scent from the couple's apartment at 1082 S. Yampa (near Buckley Field) to a Total Gas Station about a mile away and then to E. Colfax and I-225. Sgt Stephen Patrick of the Aurora Police Department was the first investigator assigned to the case. "Kimmy should not be a missing person; there has been nothing but inconsistencies to Mike's stories since her disappearance." says John Greene, Kimberly's father. "She has so many people out there who love her. She was so dear to me." says Kimmy's Aunt, Stephanie O'Bryan. Her sisters, Kindra and Stephanie, and brothers, Joseph, Kevin and Brendan, miss her dearly.

A psychic gave John Greene clues that led to discovery of personal effects that may have been Kimmy's at a farm field 20 miles east of Aurora near the Deer Creek exit off Interstate 70. A farmer there, named Mark Birchfield, recalled seeing a vehicle leaving the field that fit the description of Mike Medina's vehicle.

In the October 28, 1998 edition of the Aurora Sun, officials are quoted as saying "they might have discovered traces of her remains recently in a gully in rural Elbert County, along with evidence her body was buried there the night she disappeared."

The grieving father also says he does not know where Mike Medina has taken Kimberly's daughters. John Greene, who lives in Nampa, Idaho, has not seen or heard from his two granddaughters since before their mother's disappearance.

At the time of her disappearance, Kimberly was 5'5" with light brown shoulder-length hair, the most beautiful big blue eyes and long dark eyelashes, and weighed approximately 130 lbs. Her last paycheck remains unclaimed at Super Shuttle.

In a 2005 development in this case, Michael Medina was arrested in Rio Grande County, Colorado and charged with murdering his 16-month-old son, Degan. The following is excerpted from a story that appeared in Alamosa's Online Valley Courier following Medina's incarceration in Alamosa:

Medina confesses to first wife's murder
Witnesses on Thursday described events leading up to Degan's death.

Alamosa Police Sergeant Richard Needham testified Medina told Degan's mother, Becky Garel, the day before Degan's death that he had previously killed his first wife, Kimberly Greene Medina, 19, and threatened to harm Degan if Garel told anyone.

Kimberly Medina's father was in the courtroom on Thursday and began sobbing when Needham described the alleged October 1996, beating death of his daughter.

After allegedly confessing to Kimberly Medina's murder on May 20, Medina then did not let Garel out of his sight until the following day, May 21, when Garel had scheduled a time to wash her car at the home of relatives Ron and Linda Howard. Because she told Medina the Howards would suspect something was wrong if she did not show up, he let her go but did not let her take their son with her. Needham testified Garel told the Howards what Medina had told her, and Garel and the Howards then notified law enforcement authorities. Medina was living in Alamosa at the time.

While Alamosa city and sheriff authorities mobilized to deal with what they believed was a possible hostage situation, Needham testified Medina got a ride from his brother Eric and took his son and two daughters from his first marriage to Monte Vista where they ate at Pizza Hut.

Throughout the afternoon of Saturday, May 21, Medina and Garel talked on cell phones, and Medina and his children remained in the Monte Vista area. Needham testified Michael Medina's daughters said at some point in the afternoon their father told them to return to Pizza Hut and gave them a list of phone numbers to call. He also allegedly told them to love and kiss their little brother because he and Degan were going to go away for awhile.

The girls returned to Monte Vista, and Medina and his son walked into a field near the Monte Vista sewage lagoons on Henderson Avenue.

If you have information relating to the disappearance and suspected murder of Kimberly Greene-Medina, please call Detective Mehl at 303-739-6127.

Man gets 48 years for drowning son

Hector Gutierrez, Rocky Mountain News

Published July 19, 2006

A former Aurora man whose wife's disappearance nearly nine years ago remains a mystery was sentenced Tuesday to 48 years in prison for drowning his 18-month- old son last year.

Michael Medina, 34, was facing a murder trial in September, but in a surprise move on Monday he pleaded guilty in a Del Norte courtroom to child abuse knowingly and recklessly causing his son's death. He agreed to the 48-year sentence. The plea bargain was approved by 12th Judicial District Chief Judge O. John Kuenhold.

Despite his guilty plea and his stipulation to the lengthy sentence, Medina maintained Tuesday that the death of his son was an accident.

Peter L. Comar, the chief prosecutor for the 12th Judicial District, said after Tuesday's sentencing that he had spoken with the victim's mother about the plea offer made by Medina's lawyer. The mother agreed that Comar should accept the plea deal, the district attorney said.

Counselors for Medina's two surviving daughters, who would have been witnesses at the trial, also told Comar they were concerned about the emotional toll that the children would undergo if the trial went forward.

The two girls are the daughters of Kimberly Greene Medina, who has been missing since October 1996. Aurora police believe she may have been a victim of foul play.

The length of the sentence also made it less difficult for the district attorney and the victim's mother to accept Medina's guilty plea.

"I mean, he's not getting out," Comar said of Medina.

The district attorney said investigators believe Medina took his son to a sewage plant at the edge of Monte Vista on May 21, 2005, and drowned the child in a pool of stagnant water. Medina and the boy's mother had been having difficulties in their relationship, Comar said.

"We just believe his actions with the child were his way of control and dominion," the district attorney said.

Early in the investigation, Aurora detectives traveled to Rio Grande County to see if they could learn more about the disappearance of Kimberly Greene Medina. No testimony was given concerning her disappearance at Tuesday's sentencing.

Greene Medina, who was 19 at the time of her disappearance, was last seen on the night of Oct. 29, 1996, when she left her home near South Tower Road and East Mississippi Avenue. Michael Medina said his wife had told him she was walking to a Total station at South Buckley Road and Mississippi Avenue to make a phone call.

Medina acknowledged at the time that he and his wife were going through marital problems when she left. But he said he had nothing to do with her disappearance.

Families seeking justice share tips
Kin of murder victims told to be methodical, work their research "like a job."


By Kirk Mitchell
The Denver Post
Article Last Updated: 10/05/2008 01:08:51 AM MDT

Solving murder cases isn't easy when evidence is lost, a body has never been found or a coroner says the victim died accidentally.

It's especially difficult for a grieving parent or sibling with no crime investigation experience.

But getting justice for loved ones murdered years or even decades ago sometimes requires people to do the extraordinary, family members of murder victims said at a conference Saturday.

"We want to teach you Murder 101," said Stephanie O'Bryan, who has been searching for the body of her niece Kimberly Greene-Medina, 19, and lobbying for charges to be filed against her killer for 12 years.

Husband admits burying wife alive
By Kirk Mitchell
Posted March 9, 2008, 3:32 pm

Names: Kimberly Medina, 19
Hometown: Aurora
Agency: Colorado Attorney General’s Office
Date missing: Oct. 29, 1996
Status: Missing and presumed dead
Suspect: Michael J. Medina, Kimberly’s husband

Clinging menacingly to his 16-month-old son, Degan, Michael J. Medina wanted his estranged wife to understand the “price she would pay” for hurting him.

While breathing heavily, sobbing and shaking, he recounted for Becky Garel how in 1996 he pummeled his first wife, Kimberly Medina, with a bat, pulled her into a hole he had dug in a field east of Aurora and buried her while she gagged on dirt, according to an Alamosa County Sheriff’s Office report.

This time, though, Medina told his common-law wife he would kill Degan and then himself so that she would be left to suffer, the report says.
The next day, Garel told a sheriff’s deputy about Medina’s confession; Degan’s body was later found near a sewage-treatment lagoon in Monte Vista. He had drowned.

That was on May 21, 2005. Medina was subsequently charged with first-degree murder but pleaded down to child abuse causing death and is currently serving a 48-year prison sentence at Buena Vista Correctional Complex.

John Greene, Kimberly “Kimmy” Greene’s father, of Nampa, Idaho, said he expected in 2005 that murder charges would soon be filed against Medina in the death of his daughter. But nearly three years later, Medina has not been charged, and Aurora police still list Kimberly Medina as a missing person.

Kimberly Medina’s body has never been found, said Detective Shannon Lucy, Aurora police spokeswoman. But Aurora police are actively investigating the case along with the Colorado Attorney General’s Office, she said.

“There have been a number of recent interviews in the last couple of months,” Lucy said.
Medina originally claimed his first wife went missing while walking to a store for cigarettes with people he didn’t know.

During the time Kimberly Medina disappeared and when Medina killed Degan, he had accused his wives of having affairs. But the violence had come only after the women told him they were leaving him, according to Kimberly’s family and his ex-wife.

Kimberly’s aunt, Stephanie O’Bryan, said that a few days before Kimberly disappeared, she told her husband she was going to divorce him.

Garel said she had moved out of her husband’s home into her own apartment about a month before he killed Degan.

Garel told police she left Medina partly because he physically abused her. After she moved into another apartment in Alamosa, he snuck into her apartment, tied her up with duct tape, threatened to slash her with a box cutter and raped her while Degan cried.
On the afternoon of May 20, 2005, Medina went to his estranged wife’s house and immediately shut all the windows and locked the front door. He flashed a knife and threatened her with it, and told her about the day nine years earlier that he killed Kimberly, according to an Alamosa County sheriff’s report:

Medina had a paper route in rural Arapahoe County and drove by many fields. He said after he had learned that Kimberly had an affair with a co-worker, he went into one of the fields and dug a deep hole. He was wearing military camouflage. It was snowing and muddy when he drove his wife and two daughters in his truck to the field after she got home that day. Kimberly was wearing a Mickey Mouse jacket with a hood.

In the field, Medina said he tied the laces of her hood and they began to talk. Suddenly, he stepped back, pulled out a bat hidden under his coat, told her “You should have never cheated on me” and swung the bat into her head.

She fell on the ground and sat up. Medina hit her with the bat over and over again. While she was still breathing, he dragged her in the mud to the hole he had dug earlier in the day. He dropped her into the hole, took off her clothes and his clothes and laid her on her side. He got a shovel and started throwing dirt on Kimberly. Medina heard Kimberly gasping for air and a gurgling noise under the dirt.

Medina told Garel that his two daughters, Nekka and Marissa, ages 3 and 2, were asleep in the truck.

But O’Bryan told The Post that when asked where her mother was, Marissa said her mommy was pink and in a hole.

Medina joked about outsmarting Aurora police.

After telling Garel how he killed his wife, he grabbed Degan and said he would take him away from her forever, then kill himself. He showed her a box of box-cutter blades and said he would slit Degan’s throat or stab him.

He had duct tape for her mouth and rope to tie her up with. He told her he would hold Degan and his two daughters with his first wife hostage.

She repeatedly tried to calm him down, telling Medina that she loved him and would never tell police. He said if she didn’t tell police that he killed Kimberly, he would let Degan live. He calmed down, and they drove to pick up his daughters while he held Degan in his lap and kept his hand on a knife.

That night, he moved a bookcase against her bedroom door so she couldn’t escape.

The next morning, he let her leave the house to help her aunt wash her car, but he kept the three kids. She went to her aunt’s house and told her what had happened and called police.

That day, Medina called her several times and repeatedly warned her not to call police.
That afternoon, Degan’s body was found.

What Really Happened to Susan Powell?
Dr. Phil examines the case of missing mother of two, Susan Powell. Her husband is now a person of interest, and Susan’s parents are looking for answers.

Heartbroken Father

“Back in October of ’96, my son-in-law told me that my daughter, Kimberly, walked to the nearby gas station to get a pack of cigarettes, and she disappeared,” remembers John.

“Kimmy was my stepdaughter,” says John’s wife, Jennifer. “We were really close. It was devastating just to be going through it. It was horrible.”

“The day before Kimmy’s disappearance, she told her immediate supervisor that her husband, Mike, had threatened her, and if she was so much as 10 minutes late to work, to call the police because she feared for her life,” John says. “Several weeks after her disappearance, my oldest granddaughter drew a very horrific picture that went into the hands of social services, of her mother in a hole, dead and pink. I was certain of foul play then. Social services figured Mike to be a fit father, and the children left with him and vanished.

“In 2005, Mike Medina had been arrested. I learned that he had drowned his 16-month-old son. Mike is serving a 48-year sentence in prison. While they were looking for him, his live-in gal friend, Becky, explained to the police department what had happened to Kimmy. Mike drove her to this area where he had dug a shallow grave, and Mike had a miniature bat, and beat my daughter nearly to death and then put her in the hole. He laughed as he put the last shovel full of dirt over Kimmy’s face, while she was gasping for air. The saddest day of my life was when I heard that officer from the department get up on the stand and start talking about what he did to my daughter."

“I haven’t seen my granddaughters for three years now. I would really love to talk to Nekka about the pictures she drew of her mother in a hole, but I don’t want to get blamed for putting words in her mouth,” John says.

“We were afraid that if we talked to them about it, it would hurt the investigation,” Jennifer says.

“I’m really afraid of saying something wrong and that blows something else in the lines of indicting Mike for murdering her mother,” John says. “My wife and I were watching the news and saw what happened to Susan Powell, and I could not believe the similarity of what happened with my daughter.”

“The most important thing for Chuck and Judy is to not lose touch with their grandkids,” Jennifer says.

“Don’t let anybody convince you that you don’t have rights, and don’t be told that you don’t have rights,” John says. “I spoke with my oldest granddaughter briefly on my cell phone, and I told her about going to the Dr. Phil show.” John struggles to hold back his emotions. “And for a minute — a minute — I heard something that I’ve wanted to hear. She was happy. She wanted to talk to me, and she wanted to see me, and I want to hear that again. I want to see her.”

John explains why he thinks his granddaughter witnessed her mother’s murder. “We were babysitting our granddaughter in the first two weeks of Kimmy’s disappearance, and my oldest granddaughter was with my wife in the bedroom, and she looked over the back of the bed, and looked at my wife and said, ‘Mommy’s dead. Mommy is pink and in a hole,’” he says. “Obviously, that gathered a lot of excitement: Police, social services, everybody else. And it was just days after that when she drew this picture. She drew an actual picture of her mother in a hole. Kids know things. I don’t know to this day if she still remembers drawing that picture. I’ve never asked her. I’ve never put myself in that position, again, fearing messing up the investigation. Whether my granddaughter remembers it or not, it’s something that’s got to be instilled in her mind to some degree. She’s 16 years old now. She’s heard this story.”

If you have any information regarding the disappearance of Kimberly Medina, please contact Investigator Paul Goodman with the Attorney General's Office at (303) 866-5331.

Case of Aurora woman who went missing in 1996 featured on 'Dr. Phil'
By STAFF REPORTS
The Aurora Sentinel
Published: Tuesday, February 16, 2010 5:08 PM MST

AURORA | A family is hoping that an appearance on national television Tuesday will spark new interest in the 14-year-old case of their missing family member.

Stephanie O’Bryan, aunt of Kimberly Greene Medina, who disappeared in 1996, said she hopes a plea by John Greene, Kimberly’s stepfather, on the “Dr. Phil” show will spark interest in the case.

“I’m always hoping that somebody who might know something might speak out,” said O’Bryan.

Kimberly, who went by “Kimmy,” disappeared from her Aurora home in October 1996. Her husband, Michael Medina, said Kimmy went out to a gas station and never returned. Kimberly’s family has refuted the story.

In 2005, Michael Medina was arrested and convicted in 2006 of killing his 16-month-old son outside Monte Vista. Michael Medina’s wife then, mother of the infant, said he had confessed to her that he killed Kimmy. Michael Medina is currently serving a 48-year sentence for the killing.

John Greene appeared on the show to discuss the case and draw comparisons, he said, to a recent case out of Salt Lake City in which a mother of two went missing.

O’Bryan said in the years Kimmy has been missing, people are surprised to hear the circumstances surrounding Kimmy’s case.

“People cannot believe that this happened in the city of Aurora,” O’Bryan said.

“What John and I are trying to do is assure safety ... that (Michael will) never come back.”

Murder Charges in 15-year-old Missing Case

POSTED: 11:02 pm MDT May 26, 2012
UPDATED: 11:16 pm MDT May 26, 2012

AURORA, Colo. -- A Colorado man serving a 48-year prison sentence for the death of his 2-year-old son now faces a murder charge stemming from the disappearance of his wife.

The Aurora Sentinel (http://bit.ly/LFkiYt ) reports that 41-year-old Michael Jim Medina is expected to appear in court this week for the presumed death of Kimberly Greene.

The Aurora woman disappeared in 1996, and her family has long suspected Medina was involved.

Police declined to say what changed in the case and led to Medina's indictment, and a spokeswoman for the Arapahoe County District Attorney's Office says documents in the case are sealed.

Medina is in prison for the 2005 killing of his son Degan in Rio Blanco County.
