Young woman indicted for killing woman with car at Cumberland mall


Approximately one month after a tragic incident at Cumberland Mall, an 18-year-old Fairburn woman, Vanessa Robinson, has been indicted by a Cobb County grand jury on eight charges, including malice murder, felony murder and aggravated assault.

Around 4:50 p.m. on Sunday, July 16, Robinson allegedly intentionally struck another woman, 25-year-old Paige Jenkins, with her 2016 Nissan Sentra. Jenkins suffered severe injuries and was taken to Wellstar Hospital, where she ultimately passed away.

At the time of her death, Jenkins was a resident of Douglasville. Her online obituary noted that she was a University of Georgia graduate, a former cheerleader, and a gymnast with a range of hobbies and interests that included hiking, cooking, reading, and writing.

Her obituary beautifully said: “As we bid farewell to Paige McKenzie Jenkins, let us remember her as a bright light in our lives. Her zest for life and unwavering positivity have left an indelible imprint on all those fortunate enough to have known her. Though she may be physically absent, her spirit will forever shine in our hearts.” 

The Fairburn Police Department assisted the Cobb County Police Department in taking Robinson into custody. She was booked into the Cobb County jail on the morning of Monday, July 17 and remains held without bond.
