Rap Artist’s Lasts Tweets Before Suicide
A Seattle hip-hop artist has apparently shot himself dead after writing a series of tragic Twitter messages detailing his misery and how he was going to kill himself.
Freddy E, 22, died on Saturday from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound. The King County medical examiner’s office said an autopsy would be performed on Monday to confirm the cause.
Before his death, the performer, who was born Frederick Eugene Buhl, tweeted a long string of messages, beginning with: ‘Annnd, my day is ruined.’
‘If there’s a God then He’s calling me back home. This barrel never felt so good next to my dome. It’s cold & I’d rather die than live alone,’ he tweeted. ‘It’s… all… bad… y’all. *puts finger around trigger*
Freddy E, who uploaded pictures to his Twitter account showing him partying on the day of his death, then told his family members that helovedthem before posting his final tweet: ‘I’m sorry.’
While investigations into his death continue, MTV reported that many fans were accusing Toronto rapper Honey Cocaine for causing the heartbreak that led Freddy E to take his life.
Cocaine, who herself was shot last year after a show in Nebraska, took to Twitter to argue that there was a connection between their relationship and his suicide.
‘To say I caused what happened is ignorance,’ she wrote. ‘You know nothing about our friendship or the story, hate me if you feel. We loved each other. We were homies. We had a bond and a connection.
