Loaded, who was born Dashawn Maurice Robertson, wrote a suicide note on his final Instagram Stories post:

"Dear most high, Please forgive me for my shortcomings and all of the times I've fell short of making you proud and being appreciative of all the blessings that have been put in my life.

"Sometimes the lines are blurred between being solid and being heartless. I want to thank you for how far I've come and the people you've put in my life to keep me grounded through everything and I love every single one of those people that are genuinely for me. I ask for entrance into your kingdom thru all of my mistakes. I know you love all of your children and I'm ready for my heart and soul to Join you."

Lil Loaded was facing a manslaughter charge following the murder of his friend, 18-year-old Khalil Walker.

He was initially arrested on suspicion of murder last year, but was indicted in February.

Following the viral hit, Loaded signed with Epic Records. "6locc 6a6y" was awarded a gold certification by the Recording Industry Association of America just last week.

Loaded posted about his achievement on Instagram four days ago, insisting he had the "dopest fanbase on earth".

He wrote: "6LOCC 6A6Y Certified Gold. Who runnin dis s**t like me. young N***a S**t dopest fanbase on earth."

Stanley Gabart, whose production company worked with Epic Records, said: "This kid was on a great path. He was struggling with some things we wish we would've known about, wish we could've intervened."

A suspect who crashed into Rick Ross' Atlanta area mansion during a high-speed police chase has died in custody.

40-year-old Chaka Stewart led police on a wild chase that ended at the rapper's front door in Fayetteville, Georgia last week.

Stewart was found unresponsive in his jail cell at the Clayton County Jail on Saturday.

The Georgia Bureau of Investigation tells TMZ, a guard and a medic who were making the evening rounds noticed Stewart unresponsive in his cell. They attempted Cardiopulmonary resuscitation but were unsuccessful.

Stewart was pronounced dead at the jail. Law enforcement sources tell TMZ Stewart was alone in his cell and no foul play is suspected. An autopsy is underway to determine his cause of death.

Stewart's mother, Jacqueline Gordon, confirmed her son is the suspect who crashed outside Rick's 190 room mansion last week. Police say he crashed his truck and was carrying a firearm. He surrendered at gunpoint and was taken into custody.

Gordon says she last spoke to her son Friday. She claims he told her he was being beaten behind bars. It is unclear if he was accusing jail officials or other inmates. He also told her he wasn't allowed to shower and was confined to his cell for 23 hours a day.

Gordon also claims one of the deputies told Stewart he'd never get out of jail. She said Georgia authorities have been ducking her and her inquiries.

Rick bought the mansion at a discount after former boxer Evander Holyfield was foreclosed on in 2014. Holyfield is pictured strolling on the grounds of the custom built home during a Fourth of July celebration in 2002.

Black Lives Matter activists and congresswoman Ayanna Presley blamed the 5 teenagers for Mikayla's death. The FBI was asked to take over the case.

Tracking Mikayla's steps on her iPhone's Health app, investigators determined she walked about 1,316 steps -- roughly the distance from the complex into the woods where her body was found the next morning.

Additionally police pulled surveillance video from a McDonald's that shows the two boys were eating inside the restaurant when Mikayla died.

GPS signals placed Kaitlyn and the other two girls miles away. Middlesex district attorney Marian Ryan confirmed none of the teens were in the woods that night.

A week later, Saniyya Dennis, a 19-year-old Buffalo State sophomore (pictured), went missing from her dorm room.

Saniyya's father, former Dipset rapper 40 Cal (Calvin Byrd), offered $10,000 for information on his missing daughter.

At an afternoon press conference on Thursday, police said Saniyya apparently jumped to her death from Niagara Falls after calling an ex-boyfriend 66 times.

A text she sent to her ex read: "I'm not feeling good - I think I'm going to kill myself."

Surveillance video from Saniyya's dorm in her final hours on April 24 showed Saniyya throwing personal items into a garbage can.

Police retrieved the discarded items and concluded that she didn't plan to return to her dorm room.

Hours later, she took a bus to Goat Island where she made a 45 minute phone call to a male friend. The male friend later told police he thought he'd convinced her not to take her own life.

Saniyya sent a text message to her mom telling her she loved her. Her cell phone pinged a tower close to the edge of Niagara Falls.

At 1:22 a.m. she sent her friend a final text message, assuring him she was back on the bus.

A minute later her phone left the cell phone network -- an indication that she either turned the phone off or it was destroyed.

"It appears that this poor girl took her own life," said Erie County DA John Flynn at a press conference on Thursday.

Flynn said her body may never be found because it is likely wedged in jagged rocks below.

Police will investigate the death of Robert Fuller, a 24-year-old Black man, who was found hanging from a tree in Southern California early Friday.

Fuller was found hanging in a park in front of Palmdale City Hall in Poncitlán Square around 3:39 a.m.

Authorities initially believed Fuller committed suicide. The body showed no signs of a struggle and the scene was undisturbed, which would have indicated others hoisted his body into the tree.

But Fuller’s sister, Diamond Alexander insisted her brother was not suicidal.

Sheriff's Captain Ron Shaffer said homicide detectives are now investigating the circumstances leading to his death to determine if foul play was involved.

The news comes after police confirmed a second Black man was found hanging from a tree on May 31 in Victorville - about 45 miles east of Palmdale.

San Bernardino County sheriff's spokeswoman Jodi Miller said foul play was not suspected in Harsch's death.

Harsch, 38, was found hanging from a tree near the Victorville City Library.

On Saturday, hundreds of protesters gathered under the tree where Fuller's body was found.

After placing a memorial with balloons and flowers, the crowd marched from the park to the sheriff's station. Many carried signs that read "Justice for Robert Fuller."

More than 100,000 people signed an online petition demanding a full investigation into Fuller's death.
