A missing 51-year-old Overland Park man who was an attorney at the Polsinelli law firm was found dead Monday evening.
Overland Park police on Monday afternoon had asked for help in finding Patrick J. Henderson, who left his home Monday morning. Police said he was last seen in the area of 155th and Bond streets.
Henderson had diabetes and police believed he might have been disoriented and confused. They wanted to check on his welfare.
A few hours later, police said they found his body. Police said there was no foul play or suspicious circumstances surrounding his death. Police did not indicate where he was found.
Henderson was a lawyer and shareholder with the Polsinelli law firm. He had experience in mergers and acquisitions and technology transactions, according to his profile on the law firm’s website.
Henderson had extensive experience in the movie theater exhibition sector, including representing multiple theater chains, according to the profile. He served for several years as outside general counsel for a large trade association for theater owners.
Henderson graduated in 1986 with a bachelor’s degree in business administration from Rockhurst University. He earned his law degree from the University of Kansas School of Law in 1992.
“We are deeply saddened by the loss of Patrick, an excellent attorney, respected colleague and friend,” Polsinelli chairman Russ Welsh said in a statement posted on Facebook. “He was an advocate for our clients and will be missed at the firm. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family.”
