Miami-Dade Corrections, Instagram

State Troopers who stopped to assist a Virginia man who was involved in a car crash found a decomposing body in his trunk on Sunday.

The dead man in the trunk was identified as aspiring rapper Brian Trotter, 25, who was reported missing last week in Virginia, according to the Miami Herald.

Police arrested Robert Deupree Avery Coltrain, 25, and charged him with second-degree murder and illegal transport of human remains across state lines.

Coltrain was driving north on the Palmetto Expressway near Miami Lakes when he lost control of his silver Acura and crashed on the rain-slick highway near Northwest 154th Street.

Troopers who stopped to help Coltrain detected a foul stench coming from the trunk. The car was towed to Hialeah's Westland Mall, where troopers opened the trunk and discovered the body.

Trotter, who went by the stage name "Kent Won't Stop," had been shot to death.

Coltrain initially refused to speak with Miami-Dade homicide detectives. But he was allowed one phone call and investigators listening in on the call heard him apologize to Trotter's sister. He told her the death happened in Triangle, a small town about 30 miles outside Washington, D.C.

Trotter's family and friends had searched for him for days. They reported him missing and posted missing person flyers on social media.

Under Florida law the case will be prosecuted in Miami-Dade County, since the body was found there.

Detectives are trying to determine the motive.

A Texas judge lost his patience with a juvenile Crips gang member who removed his ankle monitor and shot a 1-year-old baby. The judge sentenced the 12-year-old to 7 years in a juvenile detention center.

The boy broke down and cried during a Zoom detention hearing in September. But the judge told him to save his tears.

"Every time you come in here you cry. You know that, right?" Judge Kim told rapper Lil Rodneyy. "Every single time, you beg me for one more chance. You swear to God, 'On my mama's name,' 'I'm not gonna cut off the monitor, I'm not gonna run off,'" said judge Kim.

The boy, who also answers to "30 Shotz," admitted he cut off his ankle monitor to attend a friend's funeral. But he couldn't recall the friend's name. He told the judge he only knew the friend by his nickname.

The boy's grandfather, who helped raise him, also attended the Zoom hearing.

Judge Kim told the boy he would be detained in a juvenile detention center until he turned 19.

Rodneyy's mother was interviewed after the hearing. She is a single mom who gave birth to Rodneyy when she was 16.

The boy's father abandoned his family, and Rodneyy's mom chooses not to seek child support. She said she was sent away to prison twice when the boy was a toddler. Rodneyy was raised by her father, who lovingly refers to his grandfather as "Paw paw."

Rapper DMX is holding daily Bible studies on Instagram.com amid the coronavirus pandemic.

The 49-year-old Mount Vernon native began holding Bible study online last week to minister to those who are still on quarantine in their homes.

The rapper, who became a born again Christian in between prison stints, took to Instagram Live on Friday to preach to the unwashed masses.

The father-of-15, born Earl Simmons, has spoken candidly about his addiction to rock cocaine and other hard drugs. He began smoking marijuana laced with the drug when he was 14.

On February 10, 2016, DMX was found unresponsive in a Ramada Inn parking lot in Yonkers. A bystander said he snorted an unknown substance before collapsing. No drugs were found on the property.

Rapper Jeezy and "The Real" co-host Jeannie Mai got engaged on March 27 - less than a year after they began dating.

The couple made their relationship Instagram Official in September, after dating just a few months.

While Jeannie says she has met her "equal" in the 42-year-old rap mogul, Jeezy's friends say he is having second thoughts.

Jeezy, real name Jay Wayne Jenkins, is said to be "annoyed" that Jeannie's name always comes before his in news articles.

While urban blogs showed Jeezy some respect, mainstream news outlets gave Jeannie the shine -- which doesn't sit well with the "Thug Motivation" rapper.

Sources say Jeezy is not pleased that his friends believe Jeannie is using him for a come up.

PEOPLE magazine broke the engagement news on Monday, April 6, with the headline: "Jeannie Mai and Jeezy Are Engaged! Inside Their 'Quarantine Date Night' Proposal."

Entertainment Tonight's headline reads: "Jeannie Mai and Jeezy Are Engaged."

E! News also gave Jeannie top billing: "Jeannie Mai & Jeezy Are Engaged!"

London's Daily Mail also lead off with Jeannie in its headline: "'YES': The Real's Jeannie Mai confirms engagement to Jeezy after rapper pops the question during 'quarantine date night."

Jeezy's fans wonder when did Jeannie Mai become a bigger star than their rap idol?

Macho men like Jeezy are used to being the king of his castle and wearing the pants in the relationship. They don't do well in relationships where the woman has more power and fame.

Sources say Jeannie, 41, began dating Jeezy because a Black man will always be viewed as her lesser in society.

Prince Williams/ATLPics.net

Jeezy was previously engaged to an African businesswoman (pictured). He claimed her infant daughter as his own.

There are rumors that Jeannie is pregnant with Jeezy's 2nd child (he also has a grown son). But the pregnancy rumors are unconfirmed.
