The body of an Atlanta-based rapper who was reported missing last week has been found. According to the Macon County Sheriff’s Department, the bodies of Edward Reeves, 29, known as Bambino Gold, and Kendrick Stokes, 30, known as Skooly Kee Da Tooly, were found Friday and Saturday morning.
The first body was discovered Friday night in a wooded area off County Road 13. The second body was found Saturday morning in the woods off Highway 80, about 4 miles away from where the first body was found.
The two were reported missing Nov. 7 and were last heard from on Nov. 5. Channel 2’s Audrey Washington spoke with Reeves’ girlfriend by phone Nov. 10. She did not want to be named, but said she last spoke to him the Sunday before.
“He seemed fine … like nothing was wrong with him,” his girlfriend said. “I’m trying to not think about nothing being wrong. I’m trying to think positive.” Police said they were driving a white 2016 Honda CRV with a Georgia license plate. They were reported missing two days later.
Reeves, 29, and Stokes, 30, are cousins by marriage and longtime friends. Both originally from Montgomery, Stokes was in his hometown on Saturday, Nov. 4, to promote a party at Sky Bar on Debby Drive. Reeves came to town on Sunday and shortly after 9 p.m. they left Stokes’ house to attend the Alabama National Fair. “A lot of people saw them there,” Webster said.
After a couple of hours, they left to head back to Atlanta but Reeves said he had to make one stop at a friend’s house. That was about 10:55 p.m. Reeves and the friend talked briefly, and then Reeves and Stokes left.
The friend said the men were supposed to return and when they didn’t, he began to try to reach Reeves by cell phone. By 1 a.m., Reeves’ phone was going straight to voicemail. The following morning, other loved ones also tried to call both men but, again, they only got voicemail.
Stokes was in Montgomery, Ala., to promote a party at a local club on Nov. 4, and Reeves traveled there the next day, cops said. The two of them left Stokes’ home to go to the Alabama National Fair on Nov. 5 and no one heard from them again. “They just vanished into thin air,” Felicia Stokes Webster, Stokes’ mother, previously told Al.com. “It’s very devastating.”
She said her son is the first grandchild in the family, and said the disappearance is taking its toll on the entire family. “My parents are not doing well and his father’s parents are doing well,” she said. “It’s really wearing on their hearts.”
Stokes started working as a promoter when he was just a young teenager, she said. Up until his disappearance, they talked every day to pray together. Each morning, Webster would send her son scripture to study for the day. “I talk with him every day,” she said. “This is no like him. He reads His word and he prays.”
Reeves, a father, has appeared on over 150 mixed tapes since 2011 and has featured with artists such Sy Ari Da Kid, Boosie Badazz, Ray Vicks, Eldorado Red, and Doe B. Alley Boy, according to published reports. Reeves in September 2017 YouTube video discusses surviving a previous gunshot wound.
When rap beef goes to far you end up with the results we recently have read about with Bambino Gold and Skooly Kee Da Tooly.
Allegedly one man was found with his lips cut off and the other had his head decapitated and this is how they were discovered. No information on who may have done this just yet, but with all this technology I don’t think it will take to long to discover who the killer or killers are in these two men murder.
