The funeral service for Linzi Rashae Jenks, 21, was conducted on Friday morning, December 10, at Wiley’s Chapel Church in Borden.
Jenks was the young mother and wife whose body was found in the Fort Campbell, Ky., home she shared with her husband and two sons on Sunday, December 5. No cause of her death has yet been released by officials of Fort Campbell. Her husband, Spc. Robert Spencer Jenks III, has reportedly been held since Tuesday, December 7, in the Christian County, Ky., jail as a “...federal prisoner in transit.” The jail routinely holds prisoners for Fort Campbell.
The former Linzi LaFever, the young woman had attended Austin schools as a child. She graduated from Henryville High School in 2008, having recovered from a serious car accident that nearly claimed her life. She married Robert Jenks in April of that same year.
According to a press release from Fort Campbell, military police, fire department personnel and EMS technicians were dispatched to the couple’s home on the afternoon of December 5 by a 9-1-1 call. The woman was pronounced deceased there.
News releases from Fort Campbell indicate that her husband has been questioned in Jenks’ death. Since the investigation is on-going, very little other information has been provided by special agents with the U.S. Army Criminal Investigation Command at Fort Campbell.
Spc. Jenks has served in the U.S. Army since 2008. He completed a six-month mission in Afghanistan that began in September of that year. He is a health care specialist assigned to the rear detachment of the 4th Brigade Combat Team of the 101st Airborne Division.
Contributions in Linzi Jenks’ memory are being accepted for the benefit of her two sons by staff of the Collins Funeral Home in Scottsburg, which was in charge of funeral arrangements.
