Real Name: Joan Rochelle Malone
Location: Plains, Virginia
Date: October 18, 1992
Details: Shelly Malone was a capable horseback rider, but one day as she was doing so with friends, she was discovered lying on the ground, the victim of an unexplained death but still alive by the time paramedics arrived due to a severed ventricle. Her friends thought she had been the victim of a tragic accident before getting kicked by her horse, but her family believes there was foul play involved after indicating that a horse would not have intentionally or accidentally trampled its owner. Her friends believe her murder was possibly due to her cheating on her boyfriend who was also out riding at the time of the accident or possibly due to her criminal past. DNA was not taken from blood found in her truck due to the restricted police budget.
Suspects: None known
Extra Notes: This case first aired on the May 3, 1996 episode.
