As suspected by many people upon the news, police have confirmed that they are investigating the connection between Chinx and Stack Bundles’ murders. According to the New York Daily News, the NYPD is looking into any connections to the two tragedies.
“They were friends, Stack Bundles and Chinx. They were friends, so we’re looking at all hip-hop angles,” NYPD Chief of Detectives Robert Boyce said.
Stack Bundles was killed in Far Rockaway in 2007, after being shot near his residence. The suspect in the murder was killed days later. Police confirmed that no incident took place at Chinx’s performance hours before his shooting, and are now considering other motives for his killing.
“Right now, we don’t have anybody not cooperating,” Boyce said. “There is no fight in the club. We got [that] from numerous sources.”
Chinx was serving a four-year sentence in prison at the time of Bundles’ murder. Bundles’ brother, Ronald Ulmer, told the Daily News that he believes that his brother’s murder could be connected to Chinx’s.
“They were tight. They were a crew,” he said. “And I just think if a person commits a crime as harsh as killing, and they think they got away with it, they will surface and do it again.”
