 A 21-year-old salon owner who was murdered Saturday reportedly feared for her safety after her business was broken into just twelve days before her death.

According to court documents, at 6 p.m, Saturday officers were dispatched to MadamD Beauty Bar on North Milton Avenue, where they found Destiny Harrison murdered by a gunshot to the head.

Just twelve days prior to her murder on Dec. 10, Harrison filed charges against two people who lived near her salon after she allegedly caught them in the back of her business, stealing more than $3000 worth of merchandise.

According to Harrison, one of the suspects held her down while the other one hit and stomped on her after she demanded her property back. She later told a court commissioner that she knew that one of the suspects had a violent background and was scared for herself and others in the salon.

"I'm scared for my life and business," she wrote.

The couple was charged with assault, theft, and burglary, and Harrison also filed a peace order against the man. 

No arrests have yet been made in connection to her murder.

"It's unbelievable that some evil soul would do something like this," said her uncle Dewine McQueen via WMAR."She was my heart, loved her greatly... wonderful girl, entrepreneur, a go-getter. She built this [MadamD Beauty Bar] from the ground up," said McQueen.

"Somebody gotta know something. Please come forward. We need to get these demonic souls here. They need to pay for their crime. There's no doubt about that, in the name of Jesus, there's no doubt," said McQueen.
