Three Rappers Found Dead
Authorities found the bodies of three Michigan rappers at an abandoned Detroit apartment nearly two weeks after they vanished after a cancelled gig in the city.
Armani Kelly, 28, Dante Wicker, 31 and Montoya Givens, 31, were discovered under debris at the vacant Northcourse Apartments in Highland Park on Thursday around 6pm The Detroit News reported.
The three went missing on January 21 after their performance at Lounge 31 was called off due to ‘technical problems.’
Last week, police found a car belonging to Kelly in the possession of a 15-year-old who was taken into custody. No signs of a struggle were evident in the car. It is unclear whether the teenager led to the discovery of the missing men.
Michigan State Police Lieutenant Mike Shaw told the news outlet that the apartment where the bodies were found is not operating.
‘It’s supposed to be abandoned, but there are a lot of squatters in there,’ Shaw said.
While Shaw didn’t confirm the three men’s identities, a source revealed them to The Detroit News.
Kelly’s mother Lorrie Kemp previously said she fears her son has been killed by former inmates following his release for an armed robbery charge last year.
Kemp and Kelly’s fiancé Taylor Perrin first reported him missing two days after his disappearance, but it took police a week to realize Wicker and Givens had also vanished in what investigators have called an ‘extraordinary’ case.
Kelly had previously spent eight years in prison for armed robbery, which is where he met the other two missing men, according to his fiancé.
After their mysterious disappearance, his mother has said she fears the rapper may have been targeted by those he encountered behind bars.
