Brooklyn rapper Pop Smoke’s murder investigation has led to a labyrinth of clues about the motive for his murder and who did it.
Sister2Sister reported that Los Angeles Police Department Detective Christian Carrasco testified on May 6 that a female witness detailed Pop Smoke’s murder to the police.
However, Corey Walker, who Carrasco is currently testifying for, is the only adult accused, but he wasn’t the actual shooter.
Testimony revealed that the shooter is a 15-year-old suspect whose name hasn’t been disclosed due to his age, according to the New York Daily News.
In a preliminary hearing on May 7, Detective Carlos Camacho testified that the minor admitted to a fellow inmate that he killed Pop Smoke to steal his diamond-studded Rolex watch.
“He admitted that he shot the victim three times with a Beretta 9 (mm.),” Det. Camacho said.
The 15-year-old allegedly “admitted that they asked for the jewelry,” which then led to “a confrontation” with Pop Smoke.
“They got into a fight, and he shot him three times.”
“He said he shot him on the back,” Camacho added.
The suspects reportedly invaded the rapper’s rented home with the intention of robbing his jewelry. Including a Cuban link necklace, which they were unable to locate. Instead, they managed to steal a watch and sell it for $2,000.
Confused and sad, Obesi Jackson, Smoke’s brother, took to social media to express his grievances.
“Something not right about this case!” Jackson said in his Instagram post.
“The info not matching and ppl moving crazy. Bashar, on God, we getting to the bottom of it. I’m sorry da real wasn’t with you. I’m sorry you said n****s would shoot back and they didn’t.”
He continued: “I’m sorry you thought n****s would fight for you and they’re not even doing that in death. It seems you were more valuable alive. Everybody gets mad when I speak up cause it threatens their position in this gang s**t. Since you been away Pop, people’s love have been M.I.A.”
