Denell Malone, who apparently shares a similar name with his criminally-inclined father, Dennel Malone, was the killer of Haywood Eaton in 2009's deadly "baby mama drama" at the Burger King on West Broadway. To be fair, neither Denell nor Haywood were saints, and on another day it could have just as easily been Denell dead on the ground instead of Haywood.
Recently, I was taking a spin through the Minnesota DOC website, looking to see if mug shots were turning up for characters associated with bygone North Minneapolis incidents. (Stuck in Afghanistan, away from neighborhood events, I gravitate to bloggy tasks that stick to purely internet-based fact digging)
Sure enough, there was "Baby" Denell Malone, smiling like he'd just won a scholarship.
His father must be so proud.
