Rapper Found with Human Remains in Stomach Do you think he's already been referenced in a rap song for this? Talk about street cred. Horrifying.

The world gets more surreal by the minute... I'm now trying to compose a hypothetical headline involving rappers and potential crimes that would be stranger than this story, and I'm really having trouble coming up with anything.

Um, okay, this is horrible, but I love this:

Davey D, a hip-hip activist of www.daveyd.com said he got to know Singleton when he worked as a personality at California radio station KMEL 106.1.

Does that mean he's a lobbyist for the chorus of Weezer's "Island in the Sun"?

According to reports, Ysais' boyfriend admitted that he and Singleton were smoking PCP the night before the murder.

No shit?

The moral of the story? PCP is bad, folks. People should stick with X and love each other.

marquis, you beat me to it.

That was a horrible story. Sheesh, I think I'm going to stay offline for a while.

A medical examination conducted shortly after his arrest, found flesh in Singleton's stomach that wasn't his own.

CSI Guy: "See that genetic profile?"
Cop: "Yeah, so?"
CSI Guy: "The flesh in his stomach is his."
Guy: "Damn!" [to partner] "Let him go, Jonesy, he's guilty of nothing but self-cannibalization... and so far as I know, that isn't a crime in this precinct."

C-Murder Indicted For Murder
By Mark Allwood, BETi Music News

Posted Mar. 5, 2002 -- C-Murder, who, as we previously reported, was arrested in January for allegedly fatally shooting 16-year-old Steve Thomas in a Harvey, Louisiana nightclub, was indicted last Thursday (Feb. 28) on the charge of second-degree murder, reports MTV News.


Snarky comment # 1: "Your honor, my client C-Murder would never dream of hurting another human being...he's named after a group of crows."

Snarky comment #2: BET News gets its information from MTV News. Why does this upset me so much?

It could be that they pumped his stomach since he was all whacked out on the PCP (or anything, for that matter). Surprise!!!
posted by Ufez Jones at 11:33 AM on August 2, 2002


I'm sure they were able to do any medical exam they wanted since they found him running down the street, nude, with blood on his mouth, chest and stomach...and , because not far behind him was a dead girl who's lungs had been ripped out and chewed on.

I hardly see doing medical exams as an invasion of privacy in this scenario and I'm willing to bet that any bench judge would grant that search warrant. Rule of thumb, if you EAT people, then the police will check your stomach for the bodies...seems to make sense really.

Well, I don't smoke PCP, but that's how it's normally taken, yes. I just thought they would want to check the contents to see what else was in there (liquor, pills, organs, etc.) Dejah makes a good point.

At first I thought this was some kind of sicko joke. Then I found out it wasn't a joke, and was horrified. I mean, this takes a rapper's usual disdain for women to a grotesque new level.

Effa Why Eye, from the article itself:

According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), PCP is a white powdery drug that generally causes abusers to become disturbed, delusional, violent, paranoid and fearful when it is sniffed, smoked, or eaten.

All I remember about PCP is that it makes high school kids jump out of windows thinking they could fly in the ABC After-school movie. I seem to remember that it was Helen Hunt doing the jumping in the one I saw.

Man, I can't wait for the updated After-school movie after this...

Seems to me that this guy was born to be an Outkast. Not content with a 2pac of Eminems, he decided to be one of the Fat Boys. Without even Salt N Pepa, or and Ice T to wash it down, he became a Ghostface Killa. Few people were surprised that he became a Public Enemy, since he’s Naughty by Nature. I, for one, hope he ends up on the Pharcyde in a House of Pain.

On a side note, any time Helen Hunt is on David Letterman, the clip of her jumping out the window with a foamy froth around her mouth is shown. It's always priceless.

I remember thinking that PCP wouldn't be dangerous in my Jr. High, as we were in a one story building. I was a cynic even then.
