The dismembered remains of Mekole Harris were found in two trash bags outside of dwellings in the Greenville neighborhood of South Carolina in April of 2008, which sparked reports of a horrible crime.
The neighborhood is located in the state of South Carolina. A further investigation led to the revelation that Clarenge and Carman Jenkins, who was involved in the conspiracy, were not related to the mother of four who was 34 years old.
In spite of this, the case took an unexpected turn when Carman informed the authorities about the location of Harris’s body and testified against him during his trial in exchange for a reduced sentence and a plea deal.
After several months had passed since the homicide, fresh information came to light, which allowed the relatives of the victims to determine why their loved ones had been murdered.
In the episode titled “Body Pieces,” which will air on Homicide Hunter: American Detective on ID on March 15 at 10:00 p.m. Eastern Time (ET), more information about the gruesome murder of Mekole Harris will be revealed.
What Happened To Mekole Harris?
Mekole Harris, a mother of four who was 34 years old when she disappeared, was last seen at the Labor Finders employment agency on Rutherford Road in Greenville, South Carolina.
Mekole had been working there for almost a year. She had a lengthy criminal past that included a conviction for both prostitution and narcotics possession.
It was common knowledge that she was a drug user. They claimed that the only explanation for her actions was that she was only trying to improve her circumstances at the time.
The discovery of human body parts on the front porches of two homes in Greenville, South Carolina, in the month of April 2008 was a harrowing and upsetting event for everybody involved.
Hands and feet that had been severed from their bodies were placed on the front step, each one wrapped in a black plastic bag. In addition, a message that threatened a woman whose name was Grace and asked that she pay her debts were included in both shipments that she received.
Due to the fact that they were unfamiliar with Grace and its constituents, the recipients immediately contacted the authorities, who then began their own investigation.
Everything About Mekole Harris Murder
According to reports, Mekole Harris has not been seen or heard from again after going missing from a hiring firm located on Rutherford Road.
Her final known location was a boarding house in Greenville, but the innkeepers there had no idea who would want to do such horrific things to Mekole or why they would want to do it.
Mekole’s body was discovered by the police with a bag covering her head, after having been brought there by one of the killers. A further Autopsy confirmed that she had been strangled and then dismembered.
According to authorities, the investigation into the woman referred to in the threatening letters as “Grace” led to the identification of the individuals responsible for the murders.
They were introduced to Grace Davis, and she placed them in touch with Carman and Clarence Jenkins. The leader took them to meet Grace Davis.
According to some reports, Grace had a romantic engagement with the pair and even lived with them for a brief period of time until she eventually parted ways with them.
After further investigation, the Jenkinses were taken into custody for the murder of Mekole Harris.
Following the arrest of Clarence and Carman Jekin, the authorities conducted a search of their property and discovered disturbing evidence relating to Mekole Harris. They discovered a cache of swords, knives, handcuffs, a clump of hair, and copies of prior threatening letters in their home, where it was stated that blood had been splattered all over the walls and the toilet.
Carman Jenkins allegedly made a deal with the prosecutor’s office and led authorities to Harris’ remains in exchange for a request that he not be put to death in exchange for leading police to Harris’ remains.
She claimed that they held Harris captive for approximately one day before killing her, dismembering her body, and burying the various parts of it near Paris Mountain.
What Happened To Clarence Jenkins And Carman?
Throughout the proceedings in court, Clarence entered a not-guilty plea; nevertheless, Carman chose to testify against him.
Clarence was convicted guilty of first-degree murder in 2008, and as a result of hearing her evidence during the trial, he was sentenced to life in prison without the chance of parole.
Carman was sentenced to life in prison the same year he claimed responsibility for the murder and was found guilty of the crime.
Carman filed a motion in 2013 requesting that her sentence be reduced, and the judge granted her request. As a result, her time served in jail was reduced from 60 to 40 years.
