The family of Bettie Jenifer, Chris Attoh’s murdered wife, has spoken on her sad death.
A family source reportedly told Ghanacelebrities.com in a brief chat that Jenifer had received threatening messages for some time.
According to the report, the family said they never expected that the threatening messages could result in Jenifer’s gruesome murder.
The source added that the person who sent the threatening messages was underrated, because the family and Jenifer herself did not see the urgency in seeking protection from security forces.
The family also said at the right time, they would reveal all the circumstances leading to Jenifer’s death to rid the Internet of the many rumours surrounding it.
They also disclosed their readiness to find the perpetrators of the crime and have them brought to book.
Bettie Jenifer, Ghanaian Actor, Chris Attoh’s wife, was reportedly shot dead in Greenbelt, Maryland on May 10, 2019. In her lifetime she was married to two men, one of whom is a notorious drug lord currently serving a 20-year jail term.
The Greenbelt Police Department said in a statement, on May 11, that Jenifer had been chased through the parking lot of her office building at around 5:00 p.m. before being shot in the head in a targeted and not a random incident.
Police confirmed, on Saturday, that the deceased was married to Chris Attoh, following Attoh’s divorce from his first wife, She was also married to 47-year-old Kedrick Jenifer, who is currently serving a 20-year prison sentence for importing large amounts of cocaine into Baltimore from Texas.
The U.S. District Attorney’s Office said the kingpin’s drug trafficking organization distributed at least 450kg of cocaine in Baltimore and Woodbridge, Virginia.
“Kedrick lived large as a major Baltimore drug dealer, but now he will lose all of his toys and live for two decades in federal prison,” U.S. Attorney Rod Rosenstein has said after his sentencing.
However, Kedrick filed for a divorce from Jenifer, on April 9, 2019, while she followed suit by filing hers, six days later.
In the meantime, various sources reveal Chris Attoh might just be in a grave danger himself and staying in Maryland where he is now after his wife was shot dead might not just be the right thing to do.
Chris flew from Los Angeles where he was shooting a movie to Maryland where his wife was killed yesterday after he heard the news.
36-year-old Chris Attoh and 44-year-old Bettie Jenifer married in October 2018 after Chris separated with his wife, Damilola whom he has a child with.
Few hours before his wife was killed, Chris Attoh besides the divorce rumors shared a post on Twitter which even deepened the rumors further. Chris’ post suggested his wife has been unfaithful to him.
Chris Attoh tweeted: #CHRIS ATTOH When it comes to relationships, remaining faithful is never an option but a priority. Loyalty is ever.
