According to the Chicago Tribune, Davy Easterling a bodyguard for rapper Twista was found shot to death and lit on fire in an apartment on Chicago’s South Side. The Chicago Tribune reports that Easterling was found in an apartment about 6 a.m. Friday in the 8300 block of South Baker Avenue. Sadly that same day, Twista posted messages on both Instagram and Twitter saying that Easterling, who Twista called “A close friend of mine,” had been missing for three days. On Saturday, Twista posted again saying,
“#RIP Davy Easterling aka 6’9 I have lost too many good friends to these streets.”
State records indicate Easterling had training that would allow him to carry a gun as a security guard. Said Fire Department spokesman Larry Langford, “The Fire Department’s Office of Fire Investigations determined the fire was somehow started by a person.” Firefighters were called around 6 a.m. Friday, Langford said. Bomb and Arson investigators from the Chicago Police Department are continuing to investigate.
