On Christmas Eve of 2011, then 22-year-old Zinah Jennings was involved in a car wreck in Columbia, South Carolina, when police found her. She and her 18-month-old son Amir, had both been reported missing a month prior. When police caught up to Zinah at the wreck, Amir was nowhere to be found. Jennings claimed that Amir was with relatives anywhere from Raleigh, NC, to Atlanta, GA, except Amir was never found.
After bloody clothes and blankets, that had been found in Jennings car, were identified as belonging to Amir Jennings was only convicted of unlawful conduct in the disappearance of her son. She was sentenced to 10 years with nine months served. She also gave birth to another child while in prison.
Now, The State is reporting that Jennings was released from prison back in late September after only serving four years of her sentence.
According to the S.C. Department of Probation, Parole and Pardon Services. Jennings will remain under supervision until March 30, 2017.
To this day, Amir Jennings has still not been found. None of the article that I read have said whether or not she could be charged with murder if Amir’s remains were to be found.
