I've known Maleah for years, and her uncle is my pastor. All he would tell us is that she was killed in a drug-related shooting around 4 pm yesterday. I would like to know what happened as well.

I was told that Maleah was shot in her stomach and her throat was slit. Do you know if this is true? This is just AWFUL! I was very good friends with Leandra in school and I just cant believe someone would do something like this. I never got the chance to really get to know Maleah but I havent been able to get this off of my mind. My heart goes out to everyone involved. I know their family has already been through more than most people have to encounter in a lifetime.

Update: Yes, its true. Her sister Valissa found her and Dominique dead with a few gunshot wounds to the abdomen and each of their throats slit. I was also told that Maleah was pregnant with Dominique's baby. This was not only drug-related, it was racial prejudice as well. Just keep this family in your prayers, they've been through a lot throughout their lives. You have no idea.

Well I was told that Dominique`s uncle found them and call Leandra?? There are soo many stories flying around out there. I read the paper this morning.. I was shocked to see that the neighbors wouldnt even answer the door for the cops. I understand why though, I`m sure they are scared to death. I havent gotten a chance to talk with Leandra. I didnt want to call. I lost my brother a few years back and I know how hard it is so I didnt want to bother her. I`m sure its much worse for her in this situation. Have you heard if she was doing okay or not? I know I heard that Valissa wasnt taking it well at all. I can only imagine the greif they are all going through. I think things would be a little easier if they had some answers. I will be keeping both families and ALL friends in my prayers and thoughts. Also have you heard anything on the arrangements??

I know Dominique's uncle did not find them. My mother, who is very close with the family said that she was told that Valissa found them, but she may have been mistaken (she gets their names mixed up pretty often because they're so unusual.) All other accounts say Leandra found them. I'm sure Leandra isn't doing well, considering she recently lost her husband as well. My family and I are planning to attend the funeral. I don't think any arrangements have been made yet. Keep us posted Matthew. You're right, word of mouth is the worst source of information.

The Autopsy has not been conducted. No results as of yet. Keep in mind that the Autopsy results may not be released pending the investigation.
Rumors of how they were killed are not doing anybody any justice. For the families sake we need not help in spreading the rumors.
Even the statements that have been printed in the newspaper, quoting family members may or may not be true. Everyone be patient.

I dont know why anyone would want to set and spread all the stories that they hear. stop and think about both families this is not something to just run with this was two young people whos lives has been taken, know matter what was going on in their lives. Both of them still have family who loved them both and I am sure really dont wont to hear all of the non sence that is going around. let the cops do their work and everyone stay out of it.

Deon McCants has been arrested in the murders of Meleah and Domonique. It obviously wasnt racial because he has dated white girls before.

I knew the whole family except for the three girls' mother. She died while VaLissa and I were in Kindergarten. I have a cousin who was Leandra's friend and my little sister was Maleah's friend way back then. I remember the last time that my cousin, sister, and I all went to VaLissa's dad's house was in 1993 or 1994 because it was right after my own father passed away. I hope that everyone will keep their noses out of it unless they have information that will help put the murderer in jail. I also hope that the entire family get counseling - I didn't know about Leandra's husband until I read it on here. My heart goes out to all three of them and the rest of the family.
