A US rapper has been found dead in the boot of a friend’s car in Miami after going missing on October 17.
After rapper Brian Trotter, known by the rap name Kent Won’t Stop, went missing a Facebook group was set up for him to track down his whereabouts, however, after a crash on a Florida highway, Florida Highway Patrol officers discovered the body of the 25-year-old in his friend’s car.
Inside the boot of 25-year-old Robert Deupree Avery Coltrain’s car officers found Trotter’s body “wrapped in a piece of fabric and in an advanced stage of decomposition.”
Officers found the dead body of the US rapper after attending the site of a car crash on the Palmetto Expressway in Miami on Sunday, October 25, and it was during the act of towing Coltrain’s 2009 Silver Acura they noticed buzzing flies and a rotting smell coming from the boot.
Coltrain, who had known Trotter for more than a decade, was arrested and charged with second-degree murder and illegal transport of human remains after a post-mortem showed Trotter was fatally shot multiple times.
A message from Brian’s Family on October 26, read: “It is with heavy hearts that we tell you all that Brian was found deceased. We are grateful for your love and support over the last nine days.
