Kimberly J. Bunton

A balloon release was held to close Kimberly J. Bunton’s celebration of life Aug. 26 at Rolla Lions Club Park. There were no ashes to scatter or body to bury due to Bunton being thrown into an unknown St. Louis dumpster after a fentanyl overdose last year. She has not been found since.

Kimberly J. Bunton does not rest in peace. Her remains are today covered in piles of garbage within an unknown landfill. That’s according to the confessions of the men who threw her body in an anonymous St. Louis dumpster. She died of a fentanyl overdose the same day she was released from jail Dec. 15, 2021.

Any more details of Bunton’s fate will likely never be known. The initial confessor himself also later died of a fentanyl overdose following release from incarceration.
