Who was Kim Medlin?
Kimberly Jo Millen was born in December 1970 in Michigan. She moved to Monroe, North Carolina at some point and lived with her husband Bridger Medlin on their farm there. At the time of her death, Kim worked two jobs—one being a cocktail waitress at a men’s club—in order to make ends meet for them both. She also continued to nurture her love for horses and looked forward to owning her own horse farm someday soon.
How did Kim Medlin die? Who killed Kim Medlin?
On April 12th 1997, Kim drove home from work late at night when she suddenly vanished without warning. Her car was later found abandoned along an isolated stretch of highway outside Charlotte. The following day, police discovered that she had been murdered in what seemed like a vicious attack.
The authorities quickly sprang into action but struggled to find any real leads or clues as to who could have committed this heinous crime against Kim Medlin. However, after months of investigation and dedicated detective work, the police finally zeroed in on Josh Griffin as their prime suspect—a man who had been seen talking to Kim shortly before she disappeared that fateful night.
Investigating further revealed that Griffin had prior convictions for sexual assault and burglary; he also had connections to numerous similar unsolved crimes across multiple states in the US Midwest region during the 1990s; all facts which made him stand out even more as their prime suspect in this case too! Based on these findings coupled with several other pieces of evidence they gathered against him over time—including DNA evidence linking Griffin directly to the crime scene—the police were able to arrest him and bring him before justice where he was given life imprisonment without parole for his horrendous crime against Kim Medlin. While it brings small comfort knowing that justice has been served for this horrific crime, nothing can fill the void left by Kimberly Jo Millen’s untimely departure from this world so many years ago…
Who is Josh Griffin?
Josh Griffin is a former Monroe police officer who was in the news recently as it was revealed that he had been using his authority and badge to pursue women. He had created an environment of fear, intimidation and power over his victims for his own personal gain.
His actions clearly show a lack of respect for people’s autonomy and agency, and are completely unacceptable in today’s society.
