Amir Jennings case: Zinah – the mocha-flavored version of Casey Anthony
Posted on January 5, 2012 by Valhall
The last time 18-month-old Amir Jennings was seen alive by anyone other than his egg-donor was on the day before Thanksgiving. That’s because it appears the poor child got a crazy lying mother whose only discernible difference from Casey Anthony (that shell of a real person from whence the “crazy lying mother mould” was made) is that she’s African-American instead of Caucasian. Well, to be fair to Zinah, unlike the non-working, non-anything-but-partying faker Casey who just lied about going to school, Zinah actually had been going to school prior to apparently going nuts. Other than that…the similarities on this missing child case are creepy-similar.
The story goes like this:
The grandmother of Amir reported him and Zinah missing on December 8th. The grandmother explained to a judge this week that Zinah was not actually missing at that time, because Jocelyn (Zinah’s mother) had seen her the night before without the child. It was during that last meeting between daughter and mother when Jocelyn could not get satisfactory answers about where Amir was that led Jocelyn, the next day, to report them missing. Zinah and the child were apparently under the radar and not located after that until…Zinah had a traffic accident on Christmas Eve and Amir was not with her, nor anywhere to be found.
The family of Zinah has stated that ever since she had Amir she’s been a little bat-shit crazy. Zinah had started disappearing for days at a time, with the baby, and had shown erratic behavior and signs of depression. Then right before Thanksgiving – poof, Amir was gone.
Now, according to reports Zinah was in a different traffic accident just prior to the Christmas Eve accident and had made “cryptic phone calls to other family members indicating her ongoing fight with depression”.
So, the Christmas Eve wreck happens and the police working that wreck discover that Zinah is reported as a missing person. Then they realize there is a baby missing as well. They start to question Zinah and that’s when she goes into full-blown “Casey mode”. She began to give one lie after another on where Amir is:
■with her sister in Atlanta (negatory)
■with her friend in Charlotte (negatory)
■with a friend in Columbia (negatory)
■“I don’t have a child” (unfortunately, I can’t say this is negatory or a lie at this point…at one point it was)
at which point reports state authorities “had enough” to arrest Zinah…and probably also “had had enough” of Zinah. When investigators reached that point they informed Zinah she was going to jail and she responded “that’s the place I need to be”…which was, I’m sure, quite concerning to anyone in the room. She’s sitting in jail on charges of lying to authorities and cruelty to children.
Columbia Police Chief Randy Scott states that Zinah’s stories are “so across the board” that their search for missing Amir is “from Charlotte to Atlanta”. Basically, right now, they haven’t got a clue because everything coming out of Zinah’s mouth is apparently a lie.
If you would like to see how disgustingly similar Zinah’s behavior was to Casey’s initial demeanor, check this video (see below
) out of her behavior during the initial hearing…eye rolling, why are you bothering me?, why am I here? Just a lot of behavior as if this whole thing is trivial except for the fact she’s all weepy because she’s busted.
The FBI are currently scouring all available records including bank account records and various surveillance camera footage to try to piece together Zinah’s activities over the past 6 weeks. Meanwhile, Amir remains missing.
