UMMMM WHAT?

About a year ago, Bobby Jones and Crystal Warner were murdered by their tenant, Craig Pennington. But the saddest part of the story is that their bodies weren’t found until just before Christmas 2016.

Crystal was a member of Triumph Strength and Conditioning in Florence, KY and friends described her as the kind of person that “you knew when she came in…You knew when she entered the room.”

WHY’D HE MURDER THEM?

According to news reports, there was a dispute over rent and law enforcement officials found an eviction notice at Pennington’s house. Witnesses said they saw Pennington shoot the pair and carry off their bodies. A car registered to Warner was found in Georgetown, Kentucky almost a week after their disappearance but there was no trace of their bodies.

WHY’S THIS COMING UP NOW?

On May 13, friends and family are going to finally get the chance to say goodbye to the couple. One reader and friend of Crystal’s who shared the news with us said, “we dearly loved her, she was a sweet, kind hearted person just trying to get better with fitness.”

To the Triumph community, we send our hearts over to your family.
