I doubt that very much. He is not that type. He has been the pillar of the community and born and raised here in Malden. He made a mistake. Addiction is a terrible thing. He is not a drug dealer and was never a dirty cop.

first of all "TellY" there were already accusations made that the officer text someone and the police never said he went into the skateboard shop to buy drugs. I doubt very much that the officer was involved in drug dealing or has done most of what people have alleged. Much of it has been rumors and speculation. Killion was a good officer when he worked on the force. Please leave it at that if you cant say anything nice about him.

It's well-known that this was a drug shop people! And Killion was probably buying his drugs there too!
Telly, where do you get all your info and who is Killion? Since you are such a wealth of information maybe you can post who the murderer is?? Imagine if this happened to someone in your family?

This "Telly" got Officer Killion involved by falsely alleging that the skateboard shop was a place for drug deals and he alleged that Officer Killion was buying drugs there too. That matter doesn't have anything to do with Officer Killion. Its just another example of someone starting false crap about someone.

I bet the police are investigating the matter and they will render the facts as they see fit. The video showed the two guys coming in and it looked like they were there to steal. Why would they have masks to make a drug deal or to buy drugs? The owner was not behind the counter or visible in the video. If the owner was found outside in the street, then he must have chased after them after once he realized they came into his store to steal. I haven't seen anything in the video that would make me believe that the owner was involved with drugs in someway. Leave it to the police to find out who and why.

Did they catch the killers yet or are they still running around Malden toting their guns for the next victim?

No word. If no one has come forward then there may be very little for the police to go by. They have an anonymous tip line. Call if anyone has legit info on who the suspects might be.

I didn't get to see the two guys who were arrested for a murder a few weeks ago regarding a drug deal gone bad, I think it was in Stoneham but not sure, but I'm just wondering if it is the same two who were involved in the skateboard shop owner's murder At least they have a glimpse of those two murder suspects on video.

This just doesn't sit well with me. I can't imagine why anyone would rob a skate shop in malden in January when they had many other places that would of had wayyyyy more money. I hope i am wrong and this soldier was just defending his shop and was in the wrong place at the wrong time. But i have a funny feeling there is more to this brazen shooting. Hope I am wrong because no one deserve to die like that and leave behind a beautiful family.
Way too many speculations;,no one is quite sure yet.

Not sure if this is true, but I am hearing from some high school kids that this was a known drug store, kids would buy drugs from someone in there. has anyone else heard this?
Noone will ever know the real reason but i heard the same thing!!

But if people know that it was a drug store for a fact or know kids who are talking about it, why come on Topix? Why not go to the police, even anonymously, with everything you know or heard so that killing can be resolved? There is nothing anyone on Topix can do but gossip about it and second guess. Report it.
