KANSAS CITY, KAN—The family of a missing college student wants to know why her husband has apparently disappeared too. Thirty-five-year-old Amanda Sinkhorn was last seen at the Kansas City Kansas Community College on Sept. 22, after her brother dropped her off on campus. Sinkhorn's brother, Brandon Dow, said he doesn't think it's a coincidence his sister's husband hasn't been located by police.
"He was constantly calling her and harassing her," Dow said. "I think he's capable of killing her. I really, honestly do."
"She's terrified of him," Dow said. "He's broke her arm. He's beat her unconscious. He's broken ribs."
Missing person posters now hang from the hallways at Kansas City Kansas Community College. Sinkhorn was last seen on surveillance video leaving the humanities building. Her brother said White wanted her student loan money, totaling $9,600.
"I think they need to be finding out where Lee's at, and I think they'll find my sister-in-law there too, hopefully alive," said Dorothy Dow.
Although police aren't calling White a suspect, they do admit they want to talk him. They just can't find him.
White's criminal history includes domestic violence charges, though not against Sinkhorn. Dow said she was too scared to call police. His wife admits she's frightened, too.
"I'm scared to death," she said. "I have nightmares at night. She come to me in my dream the other night. She stood in front of me and she said, 'He killed me.'"
Campus police said White is not their only focus, but his own daughter said she too finds it disturbing that her father disappeared when Sinkhorn went missing.
