When Our Daughters Are Murdered: Justice Sought In Pretty Georgia Teen’s Killing

The details in the murder of Dekalb County, Georgia teen Vanessa “Honey” Malone appear sketchy at best. Police say the petite 18-year-old  walked in on an armed robbery at the Hampton Village Apartments on Tree Mountain Parkway in Stone Mountain around 10 p.m. last Tuesday. According to friends of the deceased woman,  they saw a group of between three and six black men come into the apartment with guns, and they were told to get on the ground.  Travares Benford and his girlfriend, India Smith told cops the gang of men broke into the apartment, took Travares’ wallet, and tied the pair up in the bathroom. The cops were told they could hear the men searching through the apartment when suddenly, several shots rang out. The pair told police that Malone had entered the apartment from the rear while the men were already inside. Malone apparently attempted to flee the apartment when the pair say they heard several gun shots. Smith told police she also heard Malone scream and the men bring her back inside the apartment. The pair say they allegedly remained tied up inside the bathroom for 15-20 minutes afraid after hearing the shots. The pair called for help and Malone was declared dead at the scene. The scenario became extremely sketchy when cops were told that another alleged victim of the robbery by the name of “Mercy”, had fled the scene prior to police arrival. I’ve investigated and reviewed hundreds of tragic murder cases just like this one from afar, and I can smell a rat when I see one. This is another sad story about one of our younger daughters falling to gun violence on the mean streets of America’s inner cities. Right out the gate, I must say that the story of these two surviving victims stinks badly. The story begins with the inability to even determine how many suspects were actually involved. They tell the cops that they were forced to lie on the ground and then subsequently tied up in the bathroom. The story is also void of any details related to what the men did to the alleged 4th victim. Was he tied up in the bathroom also? Where was he during their despair? They also tell cops that Malone entered the apartment from the rear after the men were already inside. How could they possibly have known this? I thought they were tied up in the bathroom. Their entire and complete bullshit story doesn’t add up at all. They try to offer the explanation that Malone simply walked in on the armed robbery in progress, and was a victim of being in the wrong place at the wrong time. However, a red light goes off for any logical thinking person when considering the facts on their face. Assuming that Malone was killed to insure she could not identify them, the question must be asked why wasn’t the other three people allegedly in the apartment at the time of the robbery killed also? I mean couldn’t they also identify the robbers? The pair never said the men wore mask, and they could readily identify them as being of African-American descent. Mean while, they offer no other rationalization or motivation as to why the men would want to harm Malone. Also, why did the “Mercy” person flee before cops arrived? What was the connection between “Mercy” and Malone? Had Malone come to the apartment to see “Mercy” or was the teen lured there by him and the others for the purpose of her eventual murder? These are questions that simply jump out at an objective observer. I am not buying their “she was in the wrong place at the wrong time” scenario. No one else was harmed in this alleged armed robbery tail. The Police’ initial investigation into this case hint at a possible drug connection. Another alarming and suspicious element in this case is that Malone’s family declined to indicate who she was at the apartment to visit. Just another twist in a strange story that resulted in the lost of another one of our precious daughters. The drug connection in the case is an all too familiar element of a violent crime. The images of this young woman are saddening. She is beautiful, cheery, and has the appearance of innocence. Unfortunately, our daughters are lured to low-lives who’s interest in criminal behavior far too frequently result in their demise. What strikes me the most is the ability of the men to slay this pretty teen as if she was nothing at all. It takes a certain kind of human to kill for the most part, but the lack of compassion for a female while she pleads for her life is simply chilling. The bastards who did this must be brought to justice, and the weak story offered by the survivors is unacceptable. They definitely know more than what they’ve told police. We don’t know everything about this case yet, but I’ll be covering the tragic ending of Vanessa “Honey” Malone. It’s the very least I can do when one of our daughters are murdered senselessly at the hands of violent and heartless killers.
