Double homicide suspect Malum cleared of double murder; search continues for Ali Muhammed Brown

by Shaun Knittel - SGN Associate Editor

The man arrested in connection with a double homicide in the Central District earlier this month has been cleared of the crime, according to the Seattle Police Department.

Matalepuna Malu, 26, turned himself in after police named him as a suspect, saying he wanted to clear his name. Malu's family always maintained his innocence. At one point concerned family members showed up at City Hall to confront the mayor on the situation.

Homicide Detective Cloyd Steiger confirmed Malu is no longer a suspect after his alibi checked out.

Steiger told KING 5 Malu is seen on video walking into a casino at 192nd Ave. S. and Pacific Hwy. S. around the time of the double homicide in the Central District.

The victims, Dwone Anderson-Young, 23, and Ahmed Said, 27, were fatally shot at close range.

Seattle police are looking into the possibility the motive may have been a hate crime; both men were Gay.

Jail records confirm Malu was released into federal custody, where he is wanted on a federal probation weapons violation.

In other developments, Thursday night, police detectives served a search warrant at N. 130th St. and Aurora Ave. N. for Ali Muhammed Brown.

Police have been searching for Brown in connection with the double homicide.

A large police response was called to the area and police asked people to stay away from the intersection. Witnesses at the scene took photos of SWAT vehicles in a nearby parking lot.

By 7:30 p.m., police wrapped up their search at the scene, and tweeted: 'Leschi homicide susp not found @ 130/Aurora. Dets still need help finding Ali Muhammed Brown.'
