Makeva Jenkins, 33, of Lake Worth, Florida was killed on June 29, 2017 inside her home, by a single gunshot to the head, just hours after posting about her incredible life transformation on Facebook. Makeva, a mother of three, was shot around 2 am at her home by a male intruder wearing a ski mask, police said. Her death came after she wrote a Facebook post detailing her journey from homelessness to earning multiple six figure sums in just two years. Relatives now fear that post led to her death, the Palm Beach Post reports. Makeva uploaded the post (swipe left to view) at around 11.30 pm on Wednesday, writing that she was 'in awe of how far I've come'. Two hours later, around 1.30am on Thursday, a man wearing a ski mask broke into her home through the garage, CBS12 reports. The intruder held the three adults inside, including Makeva, at gunpoint along with the three children, aged one, seven and thirteen. One of those who was inside the property told CBS that he convinced the gunman to let the children leave the room where they were being held and go into an adjoining pool area. After the children had left, the gunman ordered the remaining adults to lie on the floor, before he shot Makeva in the head. She was rushed to hospital but later died from her injuries. Meanwhile the gunman fled in the family vehicle, which was later found dumped nearby, and he is now on the run. Makeva made her money running The Prime Enterprise Group, a consultancy firm which helps create business plans for small and medium sized companies. She is remembered as a loving mother and wife. Our deepest sympathies are with her loved ones. Rest well Makeva. @makevaj ... ✨ #makevajenkins #ripmakeva #stopthekilling #stoptheviolence #gonebutnotforgotten #gonebutneverforgotten #restinpeace #restinparadise #instamemorials #ripmakeva #ripmakevajenkins
This story is absolutely heartbreaking!
Makeva Jenkins, 33 posted the below message on Facebook and 2 hours later she was faced with a male intruder wearing a ski mask who was holding her 3 kids hostage in her home in Lake Worth, Florida.
There was also 2 other adults in the house and one of them managed to persuade the man to place the kids alone in another room.
That's when Makeva was shot just yards from her children and sadly passed away at the hospital from her injuries.
If there is anything to be learned from this devastating story, is to keep personal matters like this to yourself & refrain from posting to social media.
Our thoughts & prayers go out to her family.
