I have a windows service running

Inside a While statement I kick off a thread "for each" in the while

I am giving each thread a particular name

Once the while exits, all the threads are running.

How could I kill a particular thread by name from a different sub in the same service?

If Not sendRow Is Nothing And sendRow.Length > 20 Then
	'Declare and start individual thread for each (phonelist) loop
	Dim phoneWorkerThread As New Thread(AddressOf startPhoneMonitoring)
	phoneWorkerThread.Name = "Thread " + CStr(threadCounter)
	phoneWorkerThread.IsBackground = True
End If
