Tabitha Ellen Zinn (March 27, 2003 – July 17, 2018) was an American producer that was best known as the youngest daughter of Vote for the Girls host and former WXXC-FTV Fort Wayne news reporter Ava Zinn.
Life and career
Zinn was born and raised in Marion, Indiana to Angie Willis (b. 1978 d. 2010) and internet television personality/webmaster Frank Zinn (now Ava Zinn) but grew up in nearby Wabash area. When Tabitha was seven, her mother died of a heart attack. Zinn had two half-sisters, Samantha (b. 1993 d. 2020) and Tiffani (b. 1999 d. 2021, formerly Timothy) and a half-brother, Kenneth (b. 2015 d. 2018) on her father's side and Ashli Zinn (b. 1998 d. 2020) on her mother's side. Tabitha Zinn was also the paternal granddaughter of Margaret Zinn (b. 1943 d. 2002).
She attended her father's alma matter Mississinewa High School in Gas City for her freshman year and previously attended R. J. Baskett Middle School in Gas City, where she has attended from August 2014 until May 2017. Despite her father's move to Fort Wayne, Indiana, Tabitha was set to attend Mississinewa rather than Bishop Luers High School in Fort Wayne, Indiana as her sister Ashli and half-sister and her wife are expected to remain in Gas City and Marion, respectively.
On July 17, 2018, police were called to Ashli Zinn's home in Marion, Indiana over reports of a disturbance. Tabitha had reportedly destroyed the inside of Ashli's home and had also been banging her head against the walls and shoved her half-brother Kenneth "Baby Kenny" Alvaraz onto the wall resulting in his death. Shortly after police arrived, Tabitha was found dead after police stated Tabitha fashioned a noose and hanged herself in a closet with Baby Kenny.
