Motivation gone wrong, this is really sad.
A Florida woman, Makeva Jenkins, was murdered hours after revealing she is making ‘a six figure’ salary on Facebook. This, she did with pure intentions to encourage others with her inspiring life story.
Recalling how she went from being homeless to “making six figures”, the 33-year-old married mother of three shared the below chat conversation writing:
I’m in awe of how far I’ve come. This lady reached out to me about my business plans. We’ve been Facebook friends for years but the last time we spoke through private message was 8/2011. In this message I was inquiring about Dave Ramsey’s Financial Peace University offered through her church. I couldn’t even afford $99 at that time.
Fast forward to now: We overcame being homeless in 2013/2014 to reaching my six figure mark in 2015 to now making multi six figures. No matter what the road looked like, I followed my heart and stuck with it growing my business.
I’m saying this to say, anyone can do it. It takes determination and consistency.
Unfortunately, two hours after her post, a masked man knocked at her front door on Plumbago Place near Santaluces High School, Boynton Beach.
The masked man was said to have walked in and during an altercation, shot Jenkins fatally. No one knows who the actual target was in the home.
The shooting happened at 2am and the masked man fled in the family’s vehicle and ditching it nearby, a sheriff’s spokesperson said. Jenkins was rushed to a hospital where she died.
A visit to Jenkins Facebook page shows that the family members also fear the posts may have led to her death. They posted:
Regretfully, the news reports are true. The family of Makeva Jenkins asks that their privacy be respected at this most trying time. All of your love, condolences, and well wishes are appreciated; however, please refrain from calling or texting concerning the events. Please keep the family in your prayers.
