Independence Police have retrieved the remains of a missing woman on Wednesday at the Eastern Jackson County home address of a man charged with multiple sex offenses after one of his alleged victims alerted authorities about the grim find.

The Associated Press reported that a teenage girl told police that the homeowner, Michael Hendricks, 40, confessed to killing Kensie Renee Aubry, 32, of Kansas City, Kansas on the property. 

She further claimed that the man had detailed how he hid Aubry's corpse and boasted about his crimes by showing images of the woman’s dismembered body, noting that the man in question would get aroused when he sees people suffer and die.

Police acted on a search warrant on Wednesday and stumbled upon the victim's dismembered remains at 4000 block of South Buckner Tarsney Road, near Grain Valley. They retrieved gray duct tape, some white Styrofoam, wood, and white zip ties among her remains, according to Kansas City.

Authorities moved to confirm the next day on Thursday that the corpse belonged to 32-year-old Aubry, who had been reported missing from Independence since Oct. 7 last year and was last seen with two men and a woman, according to a flyer released by Kansas Missing & Unsolved.

Aubry, who used to meet up with people as an occasional sex worker, was contacted by Hendricks's girlfriend Maggie Ybarra, 30, soliciting her for a sex service before she had gone missing. 

Investigations then unraveled that Ybarra told Aubry via Facebook to turn off her cell phone when she met with her and Hendricks. 

Another witness told police that Ybarra and Hendricks claimed to have used a chainsaw at a basement to hack the victim's body before haphazardly storing the body parts in a box. A photo taken by the suspect reportedly showed Aubry's body slumped in a freezer.

The duo then tried to dispose of the body by dropping the box containing some of her remains from a helicopter. When the idea didn’t work, the man allegedly dug a hole near a septic tank at his eastern Jackson County residence and buried the remains there, Law&Crime noted, citing the search warrant.

Hendricks has not yet been charged in the case of the remains found but police are not ruling out slapping him with charges as investigations continue to determine the cause of Aubry's death.

The Jackson County homeowner Hendricks is currently facing criminal charges in Jackson County Circuit Court and is being held on a $500,000 bond accused of sexually abusing the underage girl who told police where Aubry's body was.

Prosecutors alleged that he and Ybarra coerced the girl into having sex with them and that the man would assault her while he was having sex with Ybarra between October and April, according to court filings related to the criminal charges. 

Hendricks and Ybarra will appear in a pre-trial conference slated on July 20.
