Cal­i­for­nia teen sus­pect in the bru­tal March mur­der of Kendra Reana McIn­tyre, 20, has shak­en the com­mu­ni­ty. McIn­tyre’s mom, Debra Rush, is a pow­er­ful voice against human trafficking.

Daugh­ter of Anti-Traf­fick­ing Hero Found Slain

McIn­tyre was trag­i­cal­ly shot while walk­ing in a high-risk area of South LA, known for its dark under­bel­ly of sex traf­fick­ing. Her moth­er, Debra Rush, is the CEO of Break­ing the Chains, a non-prof­it that helps sur­vivors escape the hor­rors of human trafficking.

Tragedy Strikes Close to Home

Rush brave­ly revealed her daugh­ter was a sur­vivor of child­hood trau­ma and strug­gled with men­tal health issues. McIn­tyre’s sto­ry expos­es the dev­as­tat­ing rip­ple effects of traf­fick­ing, even for those who escape.

Teen Sus­pect Identified

Two months after the shoot­ing, inves­ti­ga­tors named a 14-year-old girl as the prime sus­pect. The motive behind the killing remains unclear. The teen was arrest­ed with­out inci­dent and faces mur­der charges.
