A missing Atlanta rapper and his cousin have been found murdered in rural Macon County, Alabama, reported AL.com.
The family of 29-year-old Edward Reeves, who went by the stage name Bambino Gold, have confirmed that his body was found late Friday, Nov.12, or early Saturday, Nov. 13, according to the Montgomery Advertiser.
Macon County Sheriff Andre Brunson told Fox that two bodies were discovered in separate locations on Friday, Nov. 17, in a wooded area near County Road 13 and Highway 80, Macon County, Alabama, on Friday, Nov. 17.
Brunson said investigators believe the victims are Edward Reeves, also known as Bambino Gold, and Kendrick Stokes, also known as Skooly Kee Da Tooly.
The recovered bodies have been taken to the Alabama Department of Forensic Science for confirmation, Brunson told the Montgomery Advertiser. Public identification of the deceased would take place after the family has been notified.
Reeves was last seen in Montgomery, Alabama, on Sunday, Nov. 5, and family reported him missing on Tuesday, Nov. 7. His cousin, Kendrick Stokes, disappeared at the same time as Reeves. Stokes worked as a promoter and was in Montgomery on Saturday, Nov. 4, for a work-related function at the Sky Club.
“It’s stressful to think that somebody has done something to your child and you can’t be there to take care of them,” Reeves’s mother told the Montgomery Advertiser. “It makes you very angry. I’m extremely angry. I try to be a calm person but this is just beyond dealing with. It’s absolutely terrible.”
Brunson is cited by AL.com as stating that an individual out for a walk in the area discovered one of the bodies and contacted law enforcement. Police responded to the scene and proceeded to search the area. Deputies discovered the second body about 4:30 a.m. Saturday off Highway 80. Brunson told AL.com that the two bodies bore signs of homicide and were approximately three to four miles apart.
“They were not far off of the road at all,” the sheriff said, reports AL.com “It looks like somebody placed them there. I don’t think they were killed there.”
“It’s very sad,” Brunson said. “My heart goes out to the families and we’re working hard to get to the bottom of this.”
