MIAMI– Authorities found the body of an ambitious hip-hop artist inside the trunk of a Virginia guy’s car after he crashed on a Miami highway, authorities stated.
Robert Deupree Avery Coltrain, 25, was arrested and charged with prohibited transportation of human remains and second-degree murder in the death of 25-year-old Brian Trotter, news outlets reported.
A Miami-Dade authorities report stated Florida Highway Patrol reacted to a crash on the Palmetto Expressway Sunday afternoon and found Coltrain and his silver Acura.
Troopers towed the car to the car park of Hialeah’s Westland Shopping center and ended up being suspicious of Coltrain when he asked to remove his possessions from the car, that included a weapon case.
Authorities stated they were also suspicious since they discovered buzzing flies and the odor of decomposing flesh around the car.
Troopers opened Coltrain’s trunk and found Trotter’s body “wrapped in a piece of material and in a sophisticated phase of decay,” the authorities report stated.
An autopsy exposed Trotter was fatally shot numerous times.
A motive for the killing wasn’t right away released. It’s unclear whether Coltrain had a lawyer who could talk about his behalf.
Trotter was last seen on Oct. 17 leaving his house in Triangle, Virginia with Coltrain, who is also from Virginia.
The 2 had been good friends for more than a years. Trotter’s household stated he was attempting to create a hip-hop profession. His rap name was “Kent Won’t Stop.”
