Twista’s Bodyguard Found Shot To Death And Burned In Chicago Apartment


The Chicago Tribune is reporting that on Friday, February 21, at 6 A.M., Chicago rapper Twista’s bodyguard Davey Easterling was found shot to death and lit on fire in a South Side apartment.

Details are still developing but he was found in the 8300 block of South Baker Avenue on the same day that Twista posted on Instagram and Twitter saying Easterling had been missing for three days.

On Saturday, Twista had only this heartbroken statement to make: “#RIP Davy Easterling aka 6’9 I have lost too many good friends to these streets.”

State records indicate that Easterling had a license and the training which allowed him to carry a weapon, and Fire Department spokesman Larry Langford confirmed that the fire had been started by a person. An investigation is ongoing.

Our thoughts and condolences are with Twista and Easterling’s family and friends. — Max Weinstein
