LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - A Louisville family is desperate to find out who brutally killed their loved one. Christopher Malone, 22, was shot several times and his body was found in a dumpster behind a business in the 4200 block of Allmond Avenue on Friday.
"He was my baby, my heart my life," said Christopher's mother, Teri Green. "Now, he's gone, it's just hard."
Teri Green does not understand why anyone would kill her son Christopher. Christopher's family found out on Friday, watching the news, that Christopher was murdered. The way he was murdered is even more disturbing to them.
"I really don't have any clue why anyone would want to do this to him," said Green. "Especially what they did to him. My son was not a piece of trash."
Christopher was shot 14 times, his body was found in a dumpster behind the Greater Louisville Limo Service. He was found by an employee taking out trash.
"I'm numb he didn't have to die that way," said Green.
Christopher's blue Chevy Impala was found next door in the parking of a neighboring business Glass Specialist. Christopher's mother said the last time she heard from her son was Thursday evening.
"I knew he was going to make some music that night," said Green.
Teri said Christopher had dreams to breaking it into the music business. She said he was a fun loving person who adored his family and always looked out for his nieces and nephews.
For Christopher's sister, she said it breaks her heart to explain to her children what happened to their uncle.
"Wasn't enough to just take him, but he was disrespected," said Christopher's sister Maryann Malone Lee. "For anyone that has a heart that knows anything please call because not only will it give us closure it could be somebody else's child next."
Police don't have any suspects, if you have any information call the anonymous tip line at (502) 574-LMPD.
