    Cold Case Reopened
    Missing Warren County Man
    Lori Mitchell

    New information has a local detective taking a second look at the unsolved mystery of Ronald Brett Kinser, who went into town one night and never returned.

    Around midnight on December 23, 1993, 25-year old Kinser was headed into town when he wrecked his car near his Cemetery Road home. When a pair of passerbys pulled over to make sure Kinser was o.k., he thanked them, then ran off into a field and hasn't been seen since.

    Police searched the area surrounding the crash, but were never able to come up with any real clues.

    Detective Tim Ausbrooks with the Warren County Sheriff's Department says he can't comment on the new information at this time. Only that he has been in close contact with several family members and old friends.

    Ausbrooks is hoping an age progressed photo of Kinser, who would now be 37, will help find the missing man if he is still alive.

    Anyone who has any information about the disappearance of Brett Kinser, you are urged to call Detective Ausbrooks at (270) 842-1633.

    NamUs profile for Ronald.

    I think they need to research the area he was seen running in. JMHO.

    Thanks for the links above! Several unanswered questions:

    1.) Why was Ronald going into town?

    2.) What were the circumstances of his accident?

    3.) Any specific personality traits, family history, background?

    4.) Did Ron use or abuse alcohol or drugs?

    5.) With it being so close to Christmas at the time that Ronald ran into a field and disappeared, did the holidays have any affect on why he vanished?

    6.) Who (if anyone) saw Ronald go into this field? How quickly did they lose site of him? What was his motive for running away?

    7.) Was their any evidence in the car that could account for Ronald's disappearance?

    8.) What kind of field was it? Were crops there? Although in December that would seem unlikely. Were nearby houses, farms and barns searched?

    9.) Was Ron depressed? Any other health issues?

    10.) What was the proximity of the field to Ron's house, or to other homes were he might have gone? Could he have hitchhiked out of town?

    Bowling green? He was probably drinking and didn't want to be caught. I'm from Kentucky, I'm drinking right now, I can say that.

    I always wondered why somebody doesn't do something about that. Then I realized I was somebody.

    Yes, it sounds as though he thought he would get out of there before LE turned up to breathalyse him... But then he got lost or had an accident, or even met with foul play

    I just looked up Cemetery Rd. in Bowling Green, Kentucky, and there is a river right next to it... Perhaps he fell into the river in the dark

    I am from Hardin County Ky which is North of Bowling Green, Barren River is used alot for people fishing and boating. It would seem if he had gone in the water that he would have surfaced and his body would have beenn found. But that area does have tons of wooded areas that probably are not walked through even on a monthly basis. I am supspecting he hit his head in the accident and was disoriented/concussion even and had no clue where he was going. I agree that the area should really be searched again.

    He looks a lot like Travis Tritt to me. I agree that a new search of the surrounding area would be a good idea. Does anyone know what the weather conditions were that night? Maybe it was icy and he lost traction? How much damage did the car take? Was he bleeding?
