Amanda Myrlene Fleetwood
Died on: July 15th, 2004


Around 5:45 AM on July 10, 2004 Amanda Fleetwood and her friend, Jonnie Tromp stopped at Bizarre Times(novelty shop in the 8200 of Richmond Avenue) for cigarettes in Houston, Texas. While there, a black, clean-shaven male in his 20's, with medium to stocky build, weighing 175 to 180 pounds, and about 5'9" tall, who was wearing a dark sleeveless shirt with a tan jacket tied around his waist, and wearing a baseball cap, struck up a conversation with them, and was trying to get them to give him a ride. After they left the store and were standing by Jonnie's car (gray 1990 Nissan Sentra), the suspect again approached them for a ride. Amanda was a passenger in the front seat, and the suspect sat in the middle of the back seat. Jonnie then drove the three of them to Tanglewilde South II Townhome complex(about a mile from Bizarre Times) where the suspect told Jonnie to pull into a driveway to drop him off. At that point the suspect fired one shot into Jonnie's head, then shot Amanda once in the back of her head. The suspect then got out of the vehicle and proceeded to go through Jonnie's pockets. Jonnie then threw the car into reverse. The suspect fired two more shots into Jonnie's head as he was backing away. Jonnie managed to drive 2-3 miles to a construction site in the 6700 block of West Sam Houston Parkway near Bellaire Boulevard, where there were several police officers on site. Houston Fire Department Rescue was called to transport both of them to Ben Taub Hospital. Amanda was pronounced dead on Thursday, July 15, 2004. After a couple of weeks in the hospital, Jonnie was released.
