Anthony Balbirnie

Boonville, Mo. — The trial date of Anthony J. Balbirnie, the accused murderer of 15-year-old Khighla Parks, has been postponed again, this time until Aug. 31 of 2015. Balbirnie, who was granted a change of venue from Warsaw to Cooper County, was originally scheduled to go to trial on March 16 of next year.
Balbirnie had originally been charged with corpse abandonment in the death of the 15-year-old who walked away from her home in Willard, Mo., on Sept. 20, ’12 and was believed to have been lured by Balbirnie on Facebook. Parks was found dead in Truman Lake shortly after her disappearance.
After a lengthy investigation the state accused Balbirnie of luring the teenager to a party of sex, porn, alcohol and drugs at his girlfriend’s house in Buffalo, Mo., where she died. He is charged with second degree murder, statutory rape, child molestation, child endangerment, tampering with evidence and corpse abandonment.
Balbirnie will appear before 18th Judicial District Circuit Court Judge Donald Lloyd Barnes on July 6 for pre-trial motions.
Balbirnie had recently been paroled just prior to his allegedly luring the Willard teenager to her death.
He is currently being held by the prison system.
