Update: I have been thinking about this story below since I wrote it up earlier today and I had to come back and say a couple of things. One. There was no mention that Kenia was wearing a hood. I think that Forbes meant a hooded sweatshirt and I am wondering if he gave it to her. Two. Forbes is talking a lot. He keeps talking about this unknown guy, and you know when people keep telling you the same thing over and over, it’s because they want you to believe their lie. Three. Why did Forbes take Eddie home? Why didn’t he take Eddie with him? I think it’s because he wanted to hook up with Kenia and he gave Eddie the “guy wink-wink” meaning (I want to hit on this girl so go home) and dropped him off. Four. The “What was the girl’s name?” question he asks the journalist in the video seems scripted.
Forbes has come forward to tell everyone that he tried to help Kenia Monge.
“She was really emotional, really upset,” Forbes said. She said, “My heart is broken. Why do men treat women like that?”
Forbes told the Denver Post that he was out that night celebrating his sister’s birthday downtown with his friend, Eddie. He said they saw Kenia wearing a hood and a miniskirt on the way home. (Reports are that she was wearing a black shirt and black skirt on the night she disappeared).
Forbes said she was friendly and told them she was upset because she split up with her boyfriend.
“She was very inebriated and emotional and I was just trying to figure out where she had come from, who her friends were,” Forbes said. “When we found her at 2:30 in the morning, she was drunk.”
Eddie and Forbes sat in their car trying to figure out how to help Kenia. Kenia used Forbes’ cell phone to call her phone, but no one answered it. Forbes drove her to the nightclub but it was closed so he decided to take her to her home in Aurora that was close to the bakery where he worked. Forbes first dropped Eddie off at his house, and then Kenia said she wanted some cigarettes. They stopped at a Conoco gas station, but it was closed. As Forbes began to drive away, Kenia saw a man with a cigarette and asked Forbes to stop and she jumped out and ran over to the man.
Forbes said, he saw Kenia walking and talking with the man and it was as though Kenia had forgotten about him.
“Until they find this girl, it’s going to weigh on me. I do feel responsible. I chose not to care, to be indifferent,” said Forbes.
