Tiona Smith

Almost 11 years after Tiona Smith was brutally murdered, detectives continue to search for her killer.

On November 5, 2005 at 10:45 p.m. 23-year-old Tiona Smith left her job at a McDonalds on Cranbrook Road in Cockeysville. She got on an MTA bus and rode it to a stop at Eutaw Street and Fayette Street in Baltimore City. A witness saw a small four door car occupied by three males pull up to her at the intersection. One of them called her by name and eventually, she got into the car.

At 11 a.m. the next morning, Tiona Smith’s body was found to the rear of 6800 Fox Meadow Road by some children playing in the neighborhood. She had trauma to her head and upper body. The Medical Examiner determined that her cause of death was multiple sharp force injuries and her manner of death was homicide.

Tiona Smith was described by friends and family as an easy going, friendly person who was pleasant to speak with. Family and friends do not know of anyone that would have wanted to harm Tiona.
