Henry Dinkins

Henry Earl Dinkins, 51, of Davenport, is charged with first-degree murder and first-degree kidnapping in the July 2020 disappearance and death of 10-year-old Breasia Terrell. Dinkins had a significant criminal history and was a registered sex offender. He is the father of Breasia’s younger brother, with whom she was having a sleepover at Dinkins's home the night that she went missing. Dinkins was jailed days after Breasia went missing for violating sex offender registry requirements. On March 22, 2021, two fishermen stumbled upon human remains in a secluded pond on private land about 25 miles north of Davenport, in rural Clinton County, Iowa. An autopsy positively identified the remains to be Breasia. She had been shot to death.
