Missouri Woman Missing After Killing Her Husband In His Sleep


A Missouri woman is missing after allegedly killing her husband in his sleep.

On November 16 police responded to a shooting on Pleasant Grove Road. They found Harold Lee Wynn, 51, with a bullet wound to the head.

Dawn Renee Wynn, 49, is facing charges for second degree murder and armed criminal action. While Dawn was out on bond she disappeared.

“Please be on the lookout for Dawn Wynn,” Sheriff Rob Evenson said in a statement. “Due to a recent Missouri Supreme Court ruling, over objections from the prosecuting attorney, Wynn was out on bond and on pre-trial release where she had to check in by telephone. She is accused of murder and armed criminal action stemming from the shooting of her husband. She should be considered dangerous and could be armed. She is accused of, and charged with shooting her husband in the back of the head while he slept.”

Wynn is likely headed to northeastern Oklahoma, or to family members in southwestern Missouri, the Benton County Sheriff’s Office said.
