Johnny Michael Allen Biography
(Real Estate Agent)
Birthday: September 28, 1960 (Libra)
Born In: Albemarle, Stanly County, North Carolina
Johnny Michael Allen was an American youth minister and real-estate agent who was shot dead at his home by a 16-year-old girl named Cyntoia Denise Brown. According to the statements given by Brown during her trials, Johnny had picked her up from a parking area in Nashville and had driven her to his home with the intention to have sex. Reports suggested that Brown was a minor pushed into prostitution and even on the day of the murder, the two had had a “deal.” Brown, who lived in a motel with her abusive boyfriend, later claimed that she had murdered Johnny to save herself. The murder weapon was a pistol that Brown had got from her boyfriend. Following the incident, a lot of people supported Brown. Johnny’s friends and family, however, claimed his intentions were not harmful. Johnny, who began working as a real-estate agent in 1995, had often been described as a diligent and sincere employee. According to sources, he had wanted to be a country songwriter, but the cut-throat competition in the music industry did not let him be one. After a number of trials, Brown was eventually found guilty and was sentenced to 51 years of imprisonment. In 2018, the case reopened, and the governor of Tennessee reduced the period to 15 years. Brown’s life story is chronicled in the 2011 documentary 'Me Facing Life: Cyntoia's Story.'
