It does, but suppose you want the information that is already there?
What is the motive for wanting to stop the process?
What harm does it do to let the process keep running?
On a slow computer it takes a lot of CPU and it can take long time.

Does M-x kill-grep kill the process for find-grep-dired?
If not, I think we should make it work.
kill-find does, but kill-grep is not defined after just find-grep-dired.
