The White-Collar Crime that Shook Our Bakery to the Core
When the citizens of Corsicana awoke on Wednesday, July 24, 2013, there were no signs to suggest it would be anything more than a routine summer day. It was 95-degrees and swelteringly hot, just as the weatherman had predicted. All across town, sounds of ordinary life drifted upwards from the town’s patchwork quilt of sprawling neighborhoods. Kids played in sprinklers, men mowed their lawns, women watered their plants, and cicadas droned incessantly in the background. It was a beautiful, yet unremarkable day…until a small parade of unmarked, gray sedans turned down West Third Avenue. Their destination, only clear in retrospect, was the home of Kay and Sandy Jenkins, the comptroller at Collin Street Bakery.
