TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) A water park companys co-owner was expected to appear in court after his arrest in Texas in connection with a Kansas criminal case arising from a 10-year-old boys death on what was promoted as the worlds largest waterslide.
Records show that Jeffrey Henry, co-owner of Schlitterbahn Water-parks and Resorts, was booked into jail in Cameron County, Texas. He was being held without bond, and a jail booking clerk said he would remain there until a court appearance today.
Henrys arrest Monday follows a Kansas grand jurys indictment last week of the Schlitterbahn park in Kansas City, Kan., and its former operations director, Tyler Austin Miles, on 20 felony charges. They included a single count of involuntary manslaughter over the death of Caleb Schwab in 2016.
