It’s been approximately a year since the passing of rising rapper Lil Lonnie. XXL previously reported that the 22-year old artist lost his life following a deadly shooting in his home of Mississipi. The late artist rose to prominence following the release of his mixtape They Know What’s Goin’ On, a critically acclaimed project which went onto becoming LiveMixtapez‘s biggest release that year. Since his passing, a thorough police investigation was launched to catch the perpetrators behind for the slaying.
According to XXL, the police have finally made some arrests in connection to the late rapper’s murder. The 16 WAPT News report indicated that the Jackson Police Department apprehended two men, Monya Davis, and Antoine Carr before charging them with Lonnie’s murder. Carr was first apprehended last March in Texas and since routed back to Mississippi. Similarly, Davis was also caught in Texas earlier this month and sent back to Mississipi to face his fate. Both individuals were denied bond, based on direct confirmation from Jackson Police Department head James Davis.
With these two men now under police custody, family and friends of Lil Lonnie may find peace in knowing justice could potentially be served in the case of the late rapper’s passing. Rest in peace, Lil Lonnie.
