Jeffersonville family remains in mourning

Weekend ceremony planned for Christopher Malone



“He was home around 8 p.m. Thursday, and he said he would be back,” she said. 

But, Malone never returned.

She said it was not unusual for him to go to Louisville, where he had family and friends, but he typically stayed in Jeffersonville.

“I don’t think he was involved with the wrong people,” his sister said. “He was not a troubled child.”

She said he was a friend to all he met, and thinks it’s possible his willingness to trust people may have played a role in his unfortunate death.

Malone-Lee said she is satisfied with the work of LMPD detectives since her brother’s death.

“I think they are giving this very good attention,” she said. “I think it’s high on their list.”

She said the family is hoping someone will step forward to help police locate Malone’s killer and provide some justice to his loved ones.

“There is somebody out there that is a monster,” Malone-Lee said. “The quicker we get these people off the street, the better we are.”

She said Malone had attended Ivy Tech in Indianapolis and Vincennes University since receiving his GED.

A ceremony will be held at 3:30 p.m. Saturday near where Malone’s body was found at the intersection of Almond and Woodlawn avenues in Louisville. The event is open to the public.
