Scott Lee Kimball (born September 21, 1966) is a convicted serial killer from Boulder County, Colorado. He is serving a 70-year sentence after pleading guilty in 2009 to the murders of Kaysi McLeod, 19; Jennifer Marcum, 25; LeAnn Emry, 24; and his uncle Terry Kimball, 60. All four victims died between January 2003 and August 2004. Marcum remains missing and is presumed dead, while the other three bodies were recovered in remote Colorado and Utah locations. While represented by attorney Kenneth F. Eichner for fraud charges,[1] Kimball was released from prison to become an FBI informant. Kimball has claimed multiple other killings but has not been linked to any other crimes.[2]

He pleaded guilty to two counts of second-degree murder on October 8, 2009.[3]

In September 2010, it was reported that the FBI was investigating Kimball as a possible suspect in the murder and mutilation of a woman found in Westminster, Colorado, in October 2004. At the time Kimball lived in the area and was acting as an FBI informant.[4] In December 2010, it was reported that Kimball has stated that he is being investigated as a potential suspect in the West Mesa murders in New Mexico.[5] Kimball is currently incarcerated in Colorado State Penitentiary.
