Beunka’s childhood was not easy.  His mother was addicted to drugs and alcohol and frequently neglected Beunka.  Beunka became addicted to drugs and alcohol as an adult.  Beunka met his co-conspirator when they attended a boot camp at the same time.

Please pray for peace and healing for the family of Kenneth and all those who have been harmed by Beunka’s actions.  Please pray for Beunka’s family.
