Bambino Gold’s Body Found in Alabama
The disappearance of Alabama rapper Bambino Gold earlier this month has come to a tragic end with the rapper's body being found in his home state.
As previously reported, BG, born Edward Reeves and his cousin, promoter, Skooly Wit Da Tooly, born Kendrick Stokes, went missing on Nov. 5. Their disappearance was reported to the police two days later.
The cousins were last seen at the Sky Bar in their hometown of Montgomery, Ala. They were reportedly going to head to Atlanta but made a stop at a friend's house around 11 p.m. They were to return to the friend's house before traveling to Georgia but never made it back and didn't answer phone calls from the friend and family members. They were last seen in a white 2016 Honda CRV.
The situation left Stokes' mother, Felicia Stokes Webster, puzzled. "They just vanished into thin air," she told AL.com. "It's very devastating."
According to the Associated Press, bodies that are believed to be the cousins were discovered over the weekend in a rural area of Macon County, in eastern Alabama. The remains of the homicide victims were found about four miles apart from each other.
The first body was noticed by a passerby on Friday (Nov. 17), while the second was discovered during a subsequent search of the area by police yesterday (Nov. 18). They are believed to have been dumped in that location. "They were not far off of the road at all," Macon County Sheriff Andre Brunson told AL.com. "It looks like somebody placed them there. I don't think they were killed there."
Their bodies have been taken to the Alabama Department of Forensic Science to confirm their identities. The Macon County Sheriff's Office, the Montgomery Police Department and the State Bureau of Investigation are working in conjunction to solve the crime.
