LOUISVILLE, KY (WDRB) -- Christopher Malone's sister fought back tears. She choked up talking about her 22-year old brother, the fun-loving jokester who would always "pop up" at relatives' homes unannounced.
But Friday he didn't pop up anywhere. Not at a friend's house. Not at home. His car popped up on the news - a blue Chevy Impala with the keys still in the trunk.
That's when family members knew something was wrong. They would later learn from authorities that Malone had been shot 14 times - his body thrown in dumpster behind a limousine service.
An employee of the Louisville Funeral Limousine Service made the gruesome discovery Friday morning.
"It was just overkill to me. And they need to be off the streets. So as his sister, just please call (police)," said Malone's sister, Maryann Malone Lee.
Malone's family and friends gathered Sunday in the office of community activist Christopher 2x - speaking out there with the hope that someone with information will come forward to police.
"I really don't have any clue why anyone would want to do this or what they did to him. My son was not a piece of trash. He didn't deserve to be thrown in a dumpster," said Teri Green, Malone's mother. "I'm numb. He didn't have to die that way. He didn't have to be treated that way. So please if you know anything. Please call."
Maryann Malone Lee said that somebody took him from her family. "They done too much. It wasn't enough just to take him but he was disrespected."
Homicide detectives combed over the scene for hours on Friday. Lt. Barry Wilkerson wouldn't elaborate Sunday on a motive but hinted that they have some idea of how many suspects were involved.
Malone's family is most disturbed by the fact he was shot 14 times. They described his body as "riddled" with bullets.
"That's what broke me down. Knowing that he was thrown in a dumpster - like trash. As a parent that's something very hard to deal with," said Teri Green. "He was my baby. He was my heart, my life. Now he's gone. It's just hard. It's very hard. So please call and give us any information you have."
