Gwinnett County Man Believed Murdered After Disappearing on Date in Buckhead: Second Woman Charged in Connection

ATLANTA, GEORGIA – A Gwinnett County man has been missing since he left for a date in Buckhead in July. Police now believe he was murdered.

Leondre Flynt, 21, was last seen leaving his Loganville home with a change of clothes and a bag around his shoulder. His GMC Canyon truck was later found by officials in Detroit, Michigan. Last month, Destiny Stephens was arrested and charged with Flynt’s murder.

Recently, Audrey Zalky was arrested in Carroll County and is being charged with murder and concealing the death of another. She awaits extradition to Atlanta.

Flynt’s family accessed his iCloud account and provided a phone with his account to police to assist with their investigation. It was discovered that he had been communicating with Zalky on July 29 and that he used his phone’s GPS to navigate to the Marquis at Buckhead apartment complex on Colonial Holmes Drive in Atlanta.

Investigators were able to track Flynt’s car to a Lowe’s location in Atlanta the same day he disappeared. Surveillance video from the store shows Stephens getting out of Flynt’s vehicle and going into the store to buy a hand saw and bolt cutters. Two days later, the car was tracked to Detroit, Michigan. Police did not offer further details about Zalky’s role in Flynt’s death.

The investigation into Leondre Flynt’s disappearance and murder continues, as authorities work to bring justice for him and his family.
