How did this young beauty queen go from pageant royalty to felony charges behind bars? The Salt Lake County Jail is where Gill was taken on Saturday after what police suggest was a crime spree. Nine times when people like Riverton’s Tammy Spencer could’ve been at risk.
“To me it sounds like a bunch of punks running around causing trouble,” said Riverton resident Tammy Spencer.
And when she found out one of the four just graduated from Riverton High School and she’s a beauty queen.
“I think that's crazy,” said Spencer.
ABC 4 Utah tried to reach out to Kendra Gill and her family. One number was incorrect and the other number listed was disconnected. ABC 4 Utah stopped by the last known address for Kendra Gill and neighbors say they family moved away a few months ago. Some teens who say they know Kendra defended her and said she didn’t do anything wrong. None of them wanted to share their opinions with ABC 4 Utah on camera.
Along with Gill’s criminal charges, she could lose more like her crown and any scholarship money.
