Bodies Found In Vacant Detroit House Identified

DETROIT (AP) – Authorities have identified bodies found in a vacant east side Detroit house as belonging to two Flint women who had been missing for several days.

Wayne County spokesman Dennis Niemiec says the victims were identified Wednesday as 19-year-old Shenil Jeffries and 21-year-old Kendra Wolfe. Both women died of multiple gunshot wounds.

A 911 dispatcher received a call about 10 p.m. Tuesday that the bodies were in the house.

Wolfe’s friend Sharmeka Bonner tells The Flint Journal that the two women left Flint on Friday and last were seen in a Detroit strip club. Bonner says friends became concerned when they didn’t return by Sunday.

In an unrelated case, police say a teenage boy was found shot to death Wednesday in a burning van in Detroit.
