KANSAS CITY, Mo. – Just days after posting bond and less than 24 hours after appearing before a judge, Schlitterbahn co-owner Jeff Henry is again under investigation.

Henry, who was charged last month with reckless second-degree murder in the 2016 death of Caleb Schwab, was extradited Wednesday to Wyandotte County, where he posted $500,000 bond. 

On Thursday, Henry appeared in court, where a judge allowed Henry to travel within the United States, but had to surrender his passport.

His attorney, Ron Barroso, said after Henry arrived by private plane in Texas last night, he discovered some people he let stay on his property had burglarized and ransacked his home.

Barroso said Henry then confronted those people at his New Braunfels, Texas home.

A woman then called police at 3:30 a.m. to claim Henry threatened her.

Barroso said Henry planned to file charges and speak to police.

This incident took place just hours after Henry appeared in Wyandotte County court to face the murder case against him in connection with the death of Caleb Schwab on the Verruckt waterslide in 2016.

Barroso said he's concerned the attorney general's office will try to revoke Henry's bond and bring him back to Kansas to jail.

The bond conditions include not violating any state, local or federal laws.

So far, Henry has not been charged with a crime.
