Charges Dropped In Missing Teen's Death

CREATED Oct. 15, 2013

A man accused with dumping the body of a missing teen in Truman Lake last year is no longer charged with the crime.

Prosecutors have referred the case against Anthony Balbirnie to the attorney general's office.

Balbirnie had been charged with abandoning a corpse.

15 year old Khighly Parks was found in the lake after she was reported missing south of Willard and later seen near Buffalo two weeks earlier.

Balbirnie is currently in prison for violating parole.
