The body of a Virginia rapper who went missing for eight days was found in the trunk of his friend’s car after a crash on a Florida highway.
Brian Trotter, AKA Kent Won’t Stop,25, was reported missing by his family on Saturday, October 17. A week later, his body was discovered in the boot of a car after Miami-Dade police responded to a crash on Palmetto Expressway near Miami Lakes on Sunday, October 25.
The officers towed the vehicle – a 2009 Silver Acura – to a nearby car park, where they saw flies buzzing around it and noticed a suspicious smell.
Authorities say that Mr. Trotter’s body was found “wrapped in fabric and that he had died from multiple gunshot wounds” when they opened the trunk.
Police say the young rapper was killed by his friend and his body was driven around for a week before being found.
His friend, Robert Avery Coltrain, 25, was arrested and charged with second-degree murder, as well as illegal transportation of human remains.
The investigation revealed that the two men had been friends for more than a decade and they played sports together as teens.
Mr Trotter’s father, Brian Trotter, told the Miami Herald that Coltrain had been acting strangely when he picked his son up.
“I heard a knock on the door. It was Rob. He was very reluctant to talk to me. I noticed he was acting really strange,” he said. “Usually, Rob comes in the house. This time, he was real distant and nervous and antsy.”
