LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — The last person wanted in connection to the death of a California doctor has been captured.  According to jail records, 27-year-old Jon Logan Kennison was booked into the Clark County Detention Center Wednesday.  He’s charged with open murder and conspiracy to commit murder.

A declaration of warrant released Thursday by the Clark County Justice Court revealed more details about why police are looking for Kennison and one additional person in the homicide of California psychiatrist Dr. Thomas Burchard.

Thomas Burchard’s body was found near Lake Mead on March 7.  The Clark County Coroner said 71-year-old Bouchard, who was from Salinas, California, died from blunt force injuries to his head.

Diana Pena, the other suspect police were looking for, was arrested and booked into the Clark County Detention Center on Saturday, April 13.

She’s been charged with conspiracy of murder and open murder with the use of a deadly weapon or tear gas. 

Kelsey Turner, 25, was apprehended by police in Stockton, California in late March. She has since been booked into the Clark County Detention Center.

The report said Burchard met Turner’s boyfriend, Jon Logan Kennison, for the first time on March 2. That was the day when at some point, Turner got into an argument with someone, and Burchard offered to give her ride to get her out of the situation, the report said.

They left but eventually returned. The report said Kennison was upset Turner returned to the home with Burchard.

On April 4, Metro detectives learned from forensics that Pena and Kennison’s fingerprints were the ones found in the car where Burchard’s body was found.
