YNW Melly is currently in prison facing the death penalty for allegedly murdering two of his friends. Now new pics surfaced online, suggesting that the killer rapper may have been a transgender.
Police say that YNW Melly faked a drive-by shooting to cover up the alleged double-murder of two of his friends.
The rising south Florida rapper/singer was first arrested and charged with two counts of first-degree murder on February 14 by police investigating the deaths of Anthony Williams and Christopher Thomas Jr. Both men were shot dead on October 26.
Melly’s associate Cortlen Henry, otherwise known as YNW Bortlen, was also arrested and charged.
According to the authorities, YNW Melly drove the two dead bodies to an emergency room in the early hours of the morning on October 26, where he then claimed that they’d been shot at during a drive-by incident. They say it was YNW Melly who killed the two men.
Well someone just leaked pics of YNW Melly - wearing a dress and women's shoes.
Here is the pic that's making its way across the internet:
Melly, real name Jamell Demons, 19, of Gifford, along with associate Cortlen Henry, 19, of Vero Beach, were indicted by a grand jury Feb. 7 for the October shooting deaths of 21-year-old Anthony Williams and 19-year-old Christopher Thomas Jr in Miramar.
USA Today reported that:
Arrest records filed with the Broward County court Feb. 14 detail a variety of evidence supporting the allegations. Among the investigators' claims:
- Police found no evidence of shots fired in the location Henry said the shooting occurred. There were no reports of gunshots in the area.
- Cell phone records and surveillance video showed an associate had given false information about Demons' whereabouts before the shooting.
- Cell phone records and surveillance video showed the path taken to the hospital contradicted Henry's testimony.
- Forensic evidence at the actual crime scene, determined by cell phone records and K-9 search, showed no other vehicles were present at the time of the shooting.
- A trajectory analysis on the vehicle showed the paths of the bullets (right to left) did not match the victims' wounds (left to right).
