MURDER KROGER- Murder Kroger is the name by which the Kroger supermarket at 725 Ponce de Leon Avenue in Atlanta Georgia has been known for decades, a name which remains common as of 2020. Despite ongoing development in the area, it has been described as a nickname "that just won't die".

The store opened in the 1980s. Two fatal shootings and the finding of a corpse have occurred in the parking lot. In 1991, a 25 year old woman named Cynthia Prioleau was shot and killed. In 2002, the malodorous corpse of a man was found inside a car. And in 2015, an Alabama man, Joshua R. Richey, was shot and killed. The 2015 murder occurred after the store had been renovated and promoted by the company as "Beltline Kroger". On January 15, 2016, Kroger announced that the location would be demolished to make way for 725 Ponce, a mixed-use development incorporating office space, a new Kroger store, and expanded parking. The original Kroger building was demolished shortly after it was closed in October 2016.
