Antoine Sims, Michael Smith and Deshaun Flournoy.
This woman planned to purchase drugs from a group of blacks, and she ended up dead in a burning vehicle.
I can think of two lessons to this story, and both of them begin with: “We shouldn’t have given rights to… ”
Three people are now wanted for murder after a woman’s body was found in a burning car last month in Lawrenceville.
20-year-old Antoine Sims, 20-year-old Michael Smith, and 18-year-old Deshaun Flournoy are suspected of murdering her the night of Oct. 29, Johns Creek Police said Tuesday.
Sims is also accused in Gwinnett County of setting the car on fire a few hours later in Lawrenceville, with the woman’s body inside the car, after, police say, she was shot to death in Johns Creek.
21-year-old Adelisa Muratovic’s body was found inside a burning car around 3:30 a.m. Oct. 30 at the Springlake Cove subdivision clubhouse, in a small parking lot next to the playground.
Here’s what happened, according to Johns Creek Police: The night of Oct. 29, Muratovic, Smith and Flournoy went to a gated apartment complex in Johns Creek to meet Sims, to buy drugs. Police said Smith and Flournoy tried to rob Sims while Muratovic was waiting in the car.
“We know she was coming there to purchase drugs,” said Capt. Chris Byers with the Johns Creek Police Department.
Byers said that when Smith and Flournoy tried to rob Sims, all three suddenly started shooting.
“Shots began being fired between Michael, Antoine and Deshaun, all around the vehicle, where the victim was,” Byers said. “At some point, she was struck by a bullet.”
Byers believes that shot is what killed Muratovic. Then, investigators said Sims drove her body from Johns Creek to Lawrenceville and set fire to her car.
