9-1-1 call made weeks before bodies were found in Henderson


HENDERSON, Ky. (WEHT)- We have more information on a death investigation in Henderson we first reported on in February. It involves a murder-suicide of Jennifer and Robin Glunt.

The bodies were found February 7th but some are questioning whether the bodies should have been found sooner. Records show someone made a 911 as they were leaving Jefferson elementary school weeks before the bodies were found.

The caller reported gunshots coming from the house where the bodies were later found – raising more questions on what happened and when it actually happened.

On February 7th Henderson police started a death investigation after finding Jennifer and Robin Glunt in their home. The incident has later ruled a murder-suicide with Jennifer Glunt shooting Robin, then herself. But according to an incident run sheet and a 911 call the police were called to that same area on January 21st. More than two weeks before the bodies were found,

“There was a house across from Jefferson School where I heard a gun fire twice and heard screaming,” 911 call.

The caller was someone picking up a child from Jefferson Elementary across the street from the crime scene.

“My kids go to school there. I was picking my son up sick.”

She explains she’s panicked by what she heard.

“I can’t think right now, I’m distraught from hearing a gunshot while I’m picking my kid up puking.”

She even goes on to name the specific house.

“It’s the Benton-Glunts. Right there, Benton-Glunt.”

The Henderson Coroner is not able to determine exactly when the women died other than to say it was a few days before they were found.

But he could not elaborate on how long a few days was.

We reached out to the police department today to ask more questions about the call made on January 21st, whether that could have been when the women died, and if the police did their due diligence when investigating that report. But they did not get back to us.
