Former Homeless Mother Murdered After Facebook Testimony
It’s a sick, sad world we live in and it seems that social media has made it that much sicker and sadder.
We ran across this story on PalmBeachPost about a Lake Worth, Florida mother of 3 who was gunned down in her home just a few short hours after sharing her inspiring story on Facebook.
Makeva Jenkins was homeless in 2013-2014 and in just two short years she got a job with a 6-figure salary and a happy life. She took to Facebook share her blessings:
Not even 2 hours after this post, an armed and masked man appeared at her door. While holding everyone at gunpoint, the man ordered all the occupants into a room. According to DailyMail, someone in the home convinced the man to allow the children to leave the house. He then forced the adults to the floor, shot Makeva in the head and fled the scene in her family’s car. Makeva was taken to the hospital where she then died.
The man who took Makeva’s life still has not been caught and police do not currently know his identity.
Absolutely heartbreaking. People ain’t isht, but especially in Florida.
