The location where Kinard’s vehicle was found in Punta Gorda. It was not near his house or where his body was found.

The car was not near Kinard’s reported home on the 900 block of Andrews Avenue in Port Charlotte.

Kinard’s homicide, while on the North Port/Charlotte County line, marks the fifth murder in North Port this year.

There have been three homicides in recent weeks in the Charlotte County area.

While officials are still investigating leads, they do believe this was an isolated incident.

It is unknown whether Kinard’s decision to go by Londonn had a role in the slaying.

Taylor added officials have more information but are cautious with it due to the current investigation.

“We’re not releasing too much that would hinder investigation,” he said. “We want to get whoever’s responsible.”
