Car accident leads to discovery of missing rapper’s body in trunk of friend’s car

Wonders will never end! Police in America were assisting a man whose car had crashed on a Miami highway,and then they found a body in the trunk of his car.

The corpse turned out to be that of of his missing friend,Virginia rapper Brian Trotter, 25, an aspiring rapper who had vanished a week earlier after being picked up by this same friend Robert Deupree Avery Coltrain, also aged 25!

State Highway Patrol troopers discovered 25-year-old Brian Trotter’s remains after smelling a “foul odour” and spotting flies buzzing around inside an Acura that got into an accident in suburban Miami on Sunday afternoon, The Miami Herald reported.

The driver, Robert Avery Coltrain — a longtime friend of the young musician — was charged with second-degree murder and illegal transport of human remains.

Trotter, who went by the hip-hop name “Kent Won’t Stop,” disappeared from Triangle, Virginia, on Oct. 17 after being picked up by Coltrain from his home, where he lived with his father.

The two friends said they were going to “take pictures” in Washington D.C., about 30 miles away, said Trotter’s father, also named Brian Trotter.

“I told him, ‘I love you,’ and he said, ‘I love you,’” the dad recalled.

When the younger Trotter never came home, the family filed a missing-persons report and called Coltrain.

He gave them conflicting explanations, including that he’d dropped his pal off in Washington and that another friend picked him up, Trotter’s dad said.

As the family desperately searched for their loved one, Coltrain apparently drove to Florida — and got into an accident on the rain-soaked Palmetto Expressway, the newspaper reported.

Inside the car, troopers said they discovered a Glock .45 pistol they believe was used to shoot Trotter to death.

They found Trotter’s body “wrapped in a piece of fabric and in an advanced stage of decomposition,” according to a police report.

Coltrain, 25, was booked into a Miami-Dade jail on Monday afternoon.

Detectives are still trying to determine a motive for the murder.

“No one can understand what happened,” Says Trotter’s dad. “Hopefully, police can shed a light on what made a friend of over 10 years decide to commit something like that.”

Stories like this remind us of the need to carefully scrutinize the kind of friends that we keep, and also should serve as a warning to parents, that they should be vigilant and monitor the kind of company that their children keep…
