Florida woman executed hours after Facebook inspirational post

A mother-of-three was killed with a single bullet to the head inside her family home just hours after posting about her incredible life transformation on Facebook, Daily Mail reports.

Makeva Jenkins, 33, was shot just yards from her children around 2am at her home in Lake Worth, Florida, by a male intruder wearing a ski mask, police said.

Her death came after she penned 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.

Ms Jenkins uploaded the post at around 11.30pm on Wednesday, writing that she was ‘in awe of how far I’ve come’.

The post was accompanied by a photo of an old conversation she had with a friend about financial management courses being offered for $99.

She said: ‘This lady reached out to me about my business plans. We’ve been Facebook friends for years but the last time we spoke 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.’

Two hours later, around 1.30am on Thursday, a man wearing a ski mask broke into her home at 4104 Plumbago Place through the garage, CBS12 reports.

The intruder held the three adults inside, including Ms Jenkins, at gunpoint along with the three children, aged one, seven and 13.

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 Ms Jenkins 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 is now on the run.

A second Facebook post on Ms Jenkins page, uploaded by a loved one later on Thursday, read: ‘Regretfully, the news reports are true.
