Kenia Monge was a young woman with her whole life ahead of her. She was loved by her friends, loved by her family, and she enjoyed everything that life had to offer. In the spring of 2011, Kenia went out with some friends at a Denver nightclub when she suddenly disappeared.

Monge disappeared, leaving her belongings with her friends. Interestingly, there was more than one side to her story, as her father would receive a strange text message the next morning about a guy driving Kenia home in his “creepy van.”

The man who sent the text message claimed to be a good samaritan who had given Kenia Monge a ride home after she couldn’t find her car. But she never came home, making him the last person to see her.

Was he the guy who was responsible for her disappearance or was he truly just a man trying to help a woman in need?

Kenia Monge’s disappearance would cause her family to worry and would confuse the investigators. However, the man responsible for her disappearance would be in their spotlight for months, as they had evidence that he didn’t know about. Sadly, before they could make an arrest, another woman would be subject to his horrendous and violence behavior – but would survive to identify him and tell her story.
