Suspect identified in death of Assistant Chief Deputy Clint
Exactly one week ago, Assistant Chief DeputyClinton Greenwood,

Marshals Service, Gulf Coast Violent Offenders Task Force, DPS,
Texas Rangers, Harris County Sheriff’s Office as well as The Harris
County District Attorney’s Office.
Late last night investigators developed information identifying
Assistant Chief Deputy Greenwood’s killer as 64-year-old William
Francis Kenney of Houston. Information was also developed that

Mr. Kenny appears to have taken his own life on Tuesday morning,
approximately 24 hours after the murder. Investigators have also
learned that the weapon Mr. Kenny used to take his own life is
consistent with the weapon used in the murder of Assistant Chief
This outpouring of help and support in this investigation is not only
