    Vanessa Malone (18) was shot after walking in a home invasion

    Vanessa Malone (18) was shot after walking in a home invasion


    More than a hundred friends and family members gathered Monday to mourn the death of an 18-year-old girl who was shot multiple times after walking in on several intruders at an apartment in Stone Mountain last week.

    Police said they are still searching for the three to six gunmen who shot and killed Ms. Vanessa Marie Malone, aka "Honey", on Tuesday at the Hampton Village Apartments.

    Investigators said the men were wearing all black and armed with handgun and shotguns when they kicked in the apartment at 6902 Tree Mountain Pkwy. around 10 p.m. that day.

    Three people were in the home when the men kicked in the door, police said. Ms. Malone, the fourth victim, arrived a short time later, according to DeKalb County police.

    Mr. Travares Benford, 23, said he was lying in bed with his girlfriend, Ms. India Smith, when he heard a loud noise at the front door and then three men enter, ordering them to the ground.

    Ms. Smith told police she saw five to six men.

    Once on the ground, Mr. Benford said one of the men grabbed his wallet. Ms. Smith told police one of them grabbed her cell phone.

    Then they said they were both bound.

    "Mr. Benford advised he was tied up with a black belt and Ms. Smith was tied up with an unknown object and they were both made to lay in the bath tub in the rear of the house," according to a police report.

    It was then that Ms. Smith said Ms. Malone arrived at the home.

    Ms. Smith told police she heard the teen screaming and then she heard Ms. Malone running. Then Ms. Smith said she heard several shots and a moment later, she heard the suspects bring the victim back into the location and put her in the rear, according to the report.

    Mr. Benford said he was afraid after hearing the gunfire and waited 15 to 20 minutes before untying himself and Ms. Smith. He then called for help on his cell phone.

    The responding deputy arrived around 10:18 p.m. to the complex.

    "Once at the rear of the location, I located a female victim unconscious and not breathing lying on her right side with several gunshot wounds to her body," the deputy said.

    "I observed damaged to the front door. Two foot prints was noticed, also, damage near the deadbolt lock."

    The deputy later learned that one of the victims, named Mercy, left before deputies arrived.

    Ms. Malone's funeral was held at 1 p.m. at First St. Paul A.M. E. Church in Lithonia. She leaves behind her parents, one sister and two brothers.

    "She taught us that life is not promised to anyone and that every moment has to be seen as a valuable opportunity," according to a statement printed in the program. "Vanessa taught us that we should never look toward tomorrow to change, but take advantage of our today.

    "Her ability to create friendships touched many people of all walks of life."

    Weird?...because of several intruders with handguns and shotguns? Scary...right? I just picture her walking into this small apartment and trying to leave as they all turn around shooting her down like in a mafia movie. Crazy. But weird that she was the only one killed and she lived there with this dude and his gf who were not injured. Plus, the other missing victim who disappeared before the cops got there. Hmm...there is definitely more to come of this.

    And these things are almost never random. Either it's an inside job, or the place is actually a drug house.

    Yeah, I wonder if something happened between the three of them and the home invasion is a coverup.

    Malone was found unconscious and not breathing inside the apartment, and she had suffered several gunshot wounds. The police report says she was pronounced dead at the scene.The police report notes damage to the front door as well as the deadbolt lock. It also says that both Benford and Smith told officers there was a fourth victim known by the name of “Mercy” who fled the scene on foot before police arrived. No other details were given about a possible fourth victim, and police have not released any other details about the suspects.Police told FOX 5′s Julia Reynolds on Monday that the robbery is believed to have been drug-related, and that Malone did not live at the apartment where she was killed.


    *****MORE DETAILS*****
    The story of Vanessa ‘Honey’ Malone reads on Tumblr as follows:

    She was a victim of a gang related crime, gang members were raiding an apartment, they tied everybody up and put them in the bathroom and Vanessa came unannounced and walked in and tried to turn and run as soon as she saw what was happening. One of the members shot Honey in the butt and then dragged her back in and when she screamed out of fear of what might happen next he shot her in the back; it went through her spine and came out of her heart. They stuffed her in the closet and her spine was shattered so she was folded in half when she was found. They checked her facebook…instagram..phone and everything and she was not linked in anyway to what was happening- She was just in the wrong place at the wrong time.

    it looks like this case went cold and that she didn't live at the apartment, just came by to visit. her mom set up a facebook to try to get the investigation going again, but says the police won't talk to her. mom thinks it was some kind of set up by the ppl who lived in the apartment. from what i can tell it sounds like the police think every one is involved and just kind of let it go - thats sad

    here is the page her mom set up and some posts about the woman who lived at the apartment, who the mom thinks set the whole thing up

    i just don't get that kind of thinking from police. everyone is involved so let's just leave it alone? that still means there is/are a cold blooded killer(s) out there.

    it's like when the conservatives say: oh, just let them all just shoot each other.

    I absolutely agree. There is definitely something up with this story. I tried to find updates on this and there is nothing. I really wish they would investigate this more than what I think they did. Everything is so fishy on this. I would put 5 on it that the roommates set it up or did it themselves.

    Eighteen-Year-Old Honey Malone?s Murder a Mystery Five Years Later


    For the family of Vanessa ?Honey? Malone, the night of October 23, 2012 was playing out like any other night.

    Honey?s mom Flora Malone picked up her 18-year-old daughter from work. Honey was living with her mom in Stone Mountain, Georgia at the time, and they headed home to end their day. That is, until Honey told her mom she was going out.

    So, as teenagers do, Honey went out with friends. She?d done it countless nights before.

    But this time, Honey didn?t come home.
    Vanessa "Honey" Malone Flora Malone

    The night began innocently enough: Honey was very tired when they came home from work and her mom said it was odd that all of a sudden she wanted to go out ? to this day no one knows who she was going to meet or why. Honey?s mother and sister believe that whoever texted or called her, lured her to an apartment in a neighboring complex.

    Police do not know why she went to that apartment or how she got there.

    Shortly after Honey left home, Flora said she heard what she initially thought were fireworks in that neighboring apartment complex.

    ?My mom is like this,? Honey's sister Cassaundra Kennedy explained to Dateline. ?When she hears something like that, she always calls us to check in and make sure we are OK.?

    Flora called Honey, but there was no answer. ?At first, she didn?t think anything of it; this had happened before where Honey?s cell phone was turned off. But when she started to see emergency vehicles, she called again -- and Honey didn?t pick up. This time Mom was freaking out,? Cassaundra told Dateline.

    This is when Flora heard banging on her front door. She opened it to two men: DeKevin, a former boyfriend of Honey, and his friend Chris. ?They told me something had happened to Honey,? said Flora.

    Cassaundra said, ?It was around 11:30 p.m. when I got a phone call from my mom, and she was crying hysterically.?

    Cassaundra asked her mom what was going on, and learned that her mother?s worst fears had come true, ?She told me Honey had been shot.?

    Upon hearing the news, Cassaundra raced over to the crime scene, the Hampton Apartments, which were just behind where Honey and Flora lived.

    ?When I got there, the police wouldn?t tell us an information. My mom had been there telling police all the identifying info she could think of, like her tattoo on her right hand,? said Cassaundra, but the police would still not identify who had been killed.

    The family said it wasn?t until 2:15 that morning that the police officially identified the victim to them as Vanessa ?Honey? Malone.

    Detectives from the DeKalb County Police were assigned to investigate and conducted interviews with friends and family. Throughout the course of the investigation, Honey?s two friends, who were renting the apartment where Honey was killed, told police they had been the victims of a home invasion. According to police, the couple alleged that anywhere from three to six men dressed in black and yielding guns, kicked down the door to their apartment, proceeded to tie them up, and forced them into the bathroom.

    While the men were ransacking the house, police believe Honey stumbled upon the armed robbery. She turned to run away and she was shot for the first time. The pair tied up in the bathroom told police they heard screaming and then the sound of a gunshot.

    DeKalb County Public Information Officer, Shiera Campbell, told Dateline that Honey was shot once in the back, then brought to a back bedroom and put into a closet where she was shot for a second time -- in the chest.

    Honey?s friends told police that they then heard the masked intruders leave. They said they waited a few minutes and then managed to untie each other and get free.

    Although it is widely believed to have been a robbery gone wrong, Cassaundra says their family doesn?t think so.

    ?I don?t believe it was a robbery,? she told Dateline. ?The only thing that was stolen was Honey?s life and her cell phone.?

    Cassaundra and her mother believe that she was lured to that apartment.

    ?I assume someone called her over there -- she had told my mom she was tired when she was picked up from work,? Honey?s oldest sister told Dateline. ?Why would you choose to leave the house if you were tired??

    Now, five years later, Flora and Honey?s oldest sister, Cassaundra Kennedy, are still hoping someone will come forward and bring clarity to this crime that they say doesn?t make any sense.

    According to Flora, Honey could be a little na?ve about people, ?Stone Mountain isn?t that big of a town, but Honey was friends with everyone. Even from the time she was little, all she wanted to do was talk to people.?

    About her daughter, Flora says that ?she was a real sweetheart.? She just didn?t think anything bad could happen to one of her girls.

    ?Honey had a smart mouth and could have said something too,? said Cassaundra, speculating on what could have happened that night. ?Like if someone said ?I?ll shoot you,? she?d say, ?Do it then.??

    The DeKalb County Police confirm this is still an open case, and last year received information regarding a gun that may have been involved in the crime. The gun has been sent to the Georgia Bureau of Investigation for testing, but the results have not yet been returned.

    Public Information Officer Campbell says there are still questions as to what role the couple tied up in the apartment may have played in the killing, but there have not been any arrests in the case.

    ?We just want justice for Honey,? Cassaundra told Dateline. ?She was only 18. She had all kinds of time to come up with what she wanted to do -- and they stole that from her.?

    The family has started a Facebook group ?R.I.P. Honey? to push for tips to keep Honey?s case alive.

    ?I miss her smile, I miss her beautiful eyes, her voice. I miss fighting with her saying, ?No, you can?t wear my shoes.? Just everything about her,? Cassaundra said.

    Flora remembers her daughter every day.

    ?If I could have anything, I?d want to see what she would have become,? Flora told Dateline. ?She never got to have her firsts ? her first car, house, baby. They all got stolen from her.?

    Anyone with information regarding Honey?s case is urged to contact Crime Stoppers Atlanta at 404-577-8577
