    IA - "Bill" Wood, 79 (deceased), & wife Kaidena, 72, Warren Co., 30-July-2011

    Missing couple, burned body still mysteries
    1:35 PM, Aug. 1, 2011
    The whereabouts of a couple in their 70s and the identity of a body found inside their burned Warren County home remained mysteries Monday as officials asked the public for help finding the couple's pickup truck.

    Co-workers of James "Bill" Wood, 79, expressed puzzlement at what could have happened to Wood and his wife, Kaidena, 72, and what caused the Saturday night fire, which officials have called suspicious.
    ---
    It's not known whether the body is one of the Woods' or someone else's.

    A pickup truck belonging to a missing Iowa couple whose home apparently was set on fire turned up in Kansas City early Sunday.
    ---
    Relatives of Bill and Kay Wood told police a red 2009 Chevrolet Silverado was missing from the couple’s detached garage. Officials used OnStar to locate the vehicle in a carport in a luxury apartment complex in the 8300 block of N. Donnelly Avenue in Kansas City, North about 4:30 a.m. Sunday.

    On Tuesday, authorities released a sketch of a man described as a "person of interest" in the case. Witnesses told detectives they saw the man with the Woods' pickup. The body in the house was male, but officials must wait until DNA tests are completed to determine an identity, Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation agents said.


    The details on the sketch are vague. The man is believed to be in his late 40s to early 60s, between 6 feet 2 inches and 6 feet 6 inches tall, with a slender build and short gray and white hair.

    The sketch doesn't remind family members of anybody they know.

    One thing they do know now is that the body found inside these ashes is a man's.
    Family and friends will hold another search this coming Saturday, this time to check along roads close to the couple's home.

    It'll begin at 9:00 a.m. at Windflower Park in Norwalk.

    I was at the Iowa State Fair parade today, and I was thinking about this couple while I was there.

    Sending prayers to their families...
    The more I get to know some people, the more I like my cats!

    It's been two weeks since anyone has seen Bill and Kay Wood, the same day fire burned their home to the ground. And since then, the Wood family and their close friends have spent their free time searching for clues. The difference Saturday- they didn’t have to do it alone

    Website Launched to Raise Reward Fund

    His wife, 72-year-old Kay Wood, remains missing but her family believes she was abducted and possibly killed. No one has been arrested in the case. The Wood’s truck was found the day after the fire in Kansas City, Missouri.

    Guy Cook is an attorney for the Wood family, which hopes to raise a $100,000 reward fund. “I know, as a former federal prosecutor, how important a reward fund can be in generating leads and even a small piece of information can be a part of the puzzle that breaks open the case,” Cook said.

    Iowans and others can donate to the reward fund through the website www.woodrewardfund.com. Cook says the website allows users to donate cash or pledge money which won’t be collected until there’s an arrest and conviction in the case.

    The reward would be given to someone who provides information leading to an arrest and conviction. “I’m convinced that somebody knows something about what happened and a reward will help bring information to the surface to find Kay and arrest (the person) that committed this violent act,” Cook told Radio Iowa.
