Slim Dunkin was shot and killed while getting ready to film a music video at an Atlanta studio last Friday night. Now, police believe another rapper called Young Vito is to blame for the murder of the BrickSquad rapper and he should fear retaliation.
Police are urging Young Vito to turn himself in because they “have reason to believe he is in danger.” Which obviously means that some of Slim Dunkin’s crew have found out about it and are now seeking retaliation.
What’s worse is that now people know who allegedly killed slim Dunkin and they may take matters into their own hands — even if they weren’t friends with Dunkin or didn’t know him.
Hopefully, Young Vito will have the sense to turn himself in. Even if he didn’t commit the murder, it would make sense for him to talk to police to be removed as a person of interest or be the next person laying in a morgue this holiday season.

Vybz Kartel has been denied bail after being accused in not one but two, murders in Jamaica.
Police in that case say he’s responsible for the shooting death of Barrington “Bossie” Burton, a 27 year old businessman/promoter from a St. Catherine address.
Just weeks after those accusations he was once again named in a case, this time by Detectives from a Criminal Investigation Branch in Constant Spring, St. Andrew.
Now according to The Associated Press, Resident Magistrate Opal Smith has refused Kartel’s bail.
He did not give a reason for his decision and Kartel’s defense team has yet to comment.
Vybz Kartel is currently in jail awaiting an October 26th hearing where he’s expected to answer charges of murder, conspiracy to murder and illegal possession of a firearm in relation to the shooting death of Barrington “Bossie” Burton, a 27 year old businessman/promoter from a St. Catherine address.
Detectives from Criminal Investigation Branch in Constant Spring, St. Andrew issued another murder charge against Kartel and Kiro Jones aka “Ray Jones,” on Monday evening.
This is the second count of murder he has been charged with over the past three weeks.
It had been reported weeks earlier that a badly burnt body was found in a building believed to be owned by the self-proclaimed “World’ Boss.”
A new book by former LAPD homicide detective Greg Kading entitled Murder Rap, alleges that both Diddy and Suge Knight had a part in the murders of rappers Tupac Shakur and Christopher “Biggie Smalls” Wallace.
Vybz Kartel has been charged with murder.
Kartel is accused of killing a 27-year-old promoter Barrington “Bossie” Burton in Jamaica on July 11th, 2011.
Vybz was arrested yesterday and charged by the Major Investigation Task force, after being arrested in Kingston last week for marijuana possession.
Reports state that the initial arrest occurred, so police could hold Vybz until he was officially charged in the murder of Burton.
Vybz was charged with illegal possession of a firearm, murder and conspiracy to murder.
The devastated mother of a 4-year-old boy who was killed in a drunken hit-and-run accident is facing more jail time than her son’s killer because she was jaywalking during the accident.
Raquel Nelson, 30, could get up to three years behind bars after being convicted on July 12 of second-degree vehicular homicide, reckless conduct, and failure to use a crosswalk during the incident in April 2010.
Nelson and her three children had gotten off a bus in Marietta, Ga., after a shopping trip. They were hurrying across a four-lane highway when drunken ex-con Jerry Guy plowed into the family with his van, killing 4-year-old A.J.
Nelson and another daughter were injured, while another daughter was unhurt.
Guy, who already had two other hit-and-run convictions, pleaded guilty last year and has already served six months in the slammer.
He was released on Oct. 29 and he’s on probation for five years.
Nelson will be sentenced on Tuesday.
“I’ve had to accept that he’s gotten six months,” Nelson said Monday in an emotional interview on NBC’s “Today” show. “There’s nothing I can do about it.”
“I’ve had to forgive that portion of it. However, I think to come after me so much harder than they did him, it’s a slap in the face. This will never end for me,” she said.
PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. — A Florida teenager accused of beating his parents to death with a hammer — then throwing a party while their bodies lay in a bedroom of the family home — told his best friend he had committed the crimes, according to a police report released Wednesday.
Tyler Hadley, 17, gave a chilling account of the crimes to his friend, identified as Michael Mandell by media but referred to in an affidavit only as MM, during the party Saturday night.
Mandell told WPTV that Hadley said he had taken three ecstasy pills before murdering his parents.
Mandell said he had known Hadley since he was eight years old. Following the shocking crimes Mandell said, “I feel sick, I haven’t eaten, haven’t slept I’m just sick.”
Hadley has been charged with two counts of first-degree murder in relation to the deaths of his parents, Blake Hadley, 54, and Mary-Jo Hadley, 47.
Police said Wednesday the tip-off which led them to the Port St. Lucie home early Sunday came from Mandell — and the friend also said Hadley had been intending to kill himself with an overdose of pills following the party.
Officers discovered the bodies of Hadley’s parents on the floor of the locked master bedroom, partially covered with books, files and towels, the police report said.
A claw hammer was found between them and both bodies had wounds to their head and torso. The police report states the prints on the bodies were consistent with that hammer having been used.
Police said that after the pair were murdered, Hadley placed an invitation on Facebook about 1:30pm Saturday, inviting his friends to a party at the home.
Between 40 and 60 people attended and during the party, Hadley pulled aside Mandell saying he needed to talk to him outside, The Palm Beach Post reported.
“Tyler confided in MM that he had killed his parents,” the affidavit states. “MM didn’t believe him and Tyler pointed out both his parents’ vehicles were still in the driveway.”
Hadley told Mandell he contemplated killing his mother for about five minutes as he stood behind her while she was working on a computer.
“Then he decided to strike his mother in the back of the head with a hammer,” the affidavit states. After a few strikes from the hammer, Hadley said his mother turned to him and asked, “Why?”
Hadley’s father heard his wife scream and came out of the bedroom.
“Tyler told MM that he and his father stared into each other’s eyes for a minute. Tyler said he then went after his father and murdered him,” the affidavit states.
Hadley said it took about three hours to clean up “all the blood and that it had been more than he had expected,” but it was only when he showed Mandell a bloody shoeprint on the floor of the garage that he began to believe the story.
Mandell went inside and opened the master bedroom door and saw legs “beneath a pile of items that had been thrown on the floor.”
Hadley’s attorney Mark Harllee has filed a not guilty plea on behalf of his client. Hadley is currently being held at the Port Lucie County jail in Florida.
