Rapper Twista is mourning the loss of his bodyguard, Davy Easterling.
According to the "Chicago Tribune," Easterling was found dead in a house on Chicago's South Side on Friday. He was shot and his body burned. Investigators have determined that the fire was intentionally set and they are treating the incident as a homicide.
On Twitter, Twista wrote that he has "lost too many good friends to these streets" and included a picture of Easterling, who went by the nickname "Six-foot-Nine."
Before Easterling's body was found, Twista had posted messages urging followers to contact police if they had information about his "close friend" who had been missing for two days.
