There could be more trouble for a rising Florida rapper. On Wednesday, February 13, 19-year-old rapper Jamell Maurice Demons, a rising Florida rapper better known by his stage name YNW Melly, turned himself in to Miramar police in connection to the shootings of Anthony Williams and Christopher Thomas Jr.
Now, he is reportedly a suspect in another murder.
A report from Florida-based VeroNews, first spotted by XXL Magazine, claims that YNW Melly is believed to be involved in the shooting death of an off-duty deputy, Gary Chambliss, in Gifford two years ago.
Melly and Cortlen Henry, also known as YNW Bortlen, who was also indicted on murder charges for the shooting deaths of Williams and Thomas, were reportedly at the scene of the shooting.
“After that shooting in Miramar, our detectives will be following up for possible information in connection to the Garry Chambliss homicide,” Sheriff’s Office head of criminal investigations Capt. Tony Consalo said. “Perhaps, given their current situation, they might be able to shed some light on the case.”
This obviously adds to the ongoing legal issues for the young rapper.
YNW Melly, best known for his song “Murder on my Mind,” was initially arrested in the connection of his the murders of his two lifelong friends, YNW Sakchaser and YNW Juvy. It was believed that he shot and killed the two aspiring rappers between him and Bortlen staged the scene to look like a drive-by shooting. Williams and Thomas were pronounced dead at the emergency room entrance of Memorial Hospital Miramar in the wee hours of the morning on October 26, 2018.
Now, we will have to see what comes of the investigation linking YNW Melly and YNW Bortlen to Chambliss’ homicide.
