There was a time when Michael Egwuagu, 25, was at the top of his game. The former University of Texas-San Antonio football player, the defense captain affectionately known as “Egg,” was dedicated to the work he put in on the field. Now, he stands accused of murdering his sister Jennifer Ebichi.
On Friday, December 27, 2019, Jennifer Ebichi was at her Pflugerville, Texas home when she sent a text to her twin brother, Martin Egwuagu. The 32-year-old mother reportedly told Martin that their brother Michael was “having a crisis,” so Martin decided to rush right over to Jennifer’s home to check on what all the fuss was about. In the meantime, Martin called Michael, but couldn’t get in contact. Jennifer sent out another text to Martin and he finally made it to his destination in less than an hour.
However, by the time Martin arrived at his pregnant twin sister’s home, she was lying dead on her kitchen floor. Jennifer, who was reportedly in the first trimester of her pregnancy, had been stabbed multiple times. Also at the scene was Jennifer’s young daughter who was crying. Martin took the child outside of the home and found Michael in the middle of the street praying. When Martin saw that Michael was covered in blood, he contacted the authorities.
A friend of Jennifer’s was interviewed by police and told investigators that Jennifer Ebichi contacted her and asked that she come over to the house, too. When the friend arrived, she claimed she could hear someone screaming inside before she witnessed Michael exit the home holding the bloody knife in his hand. Michael allegedly told the friend, “I killed Jennifer.” According to The Washington Post, Michael can be heard on a security camera vocalizing those same words.

Michael Egwuagu was arrested and charged with Jennifer’s murder. It’s still not clear what led to the fatal altercation. His bail has been set at $500,000 and he has not entered a plea at the time of this publication.
I send my heartfelt condolences to the loved ones of Jennifer Ebichi. She is our sister and her life mattered.
Kenisha Dixon: Opened Her Front Door & Was Murdered In 2000
She answered a knock at the door and was immediately shot by an unknown assailant.
The person responsible for the death of Kenisha Dixon has gone unknown by authorities for over two decades, but her loved ones are determined to see justice in this case. I stumbled upon Kenisha’s story after falling down a rabbit hole that landed me on the “Cold Cases” page of the Houston Police Department’s website. There has not been much shared about the investigation into this cold case, but the scene of Kenisha’s murder suggested that she may have lived in fear. (more…)
