The case of Egypt Covington’s murder took a long time to be solved. Given their relationship status at the time, Kenny Michigan, who was her ex-boyfriend, was a prime suspect. Is he detained?
Egypt Covington was only 27 years old when she was brutally murdered on Jun. 22, 2017, inside her own home, which happens to be in Van Buren Township, Michigan.
After breaking up with Kenny Michalak, Egypt rekindled her relationship with Curtis Meadows and set the intention to begin a new journey before her tragic death.
Curtis went over to Egypt’s residence on the evening of Jun. 23, 2017, after being unable to contact her all day. Egypt’s car was parked in the parking lot, and the door to her house was wide open when he arrived.
When Curtis arrived at the residence, he discovered Egypt’s dog, Ruby, barking near the hallway.
Curtis discovered Egypt’s body face down on the floor as he looked to see what the dog was howling at. He stated that her hands were tied behind her back with Christmas lights, and she was fatally shot.

This was how Kenny started to become a subject of interest. Given the history of their relationship, it was an obvious guess that Kenny might be the killer of Egypt.
Not only that, according to the sources, Egypt’s last known interaction with Kenny occurred shortly before her death, during the Belleville National Strawberry Festival.
Kenny Michalak has denied any involvement in Egypt’s assassination.
Despite being designated as a person of interest in Egypt’s investigation, authorities have yet to charge him with anything.
Tina Covington, who is Egypt Covington’s mother, is not convinced that Kenny is the murderer. While she admits that Egypt and Kenny had a tumultuous relationship, the police labeled him as a person of interest because they were under pressure to find someone to blame for the crime.
