The police were finally able to locate the body of missing Atlanta rapper, Edward Reeves—known by his stage name, Bambino Gold—on Friday night. If you want to know more about what happened to him and his cousin, keep on reading.
Local authorities have reported that they were able to find the body of Atlanta-based rapper Bambino Gold (born Edward Reeves) on the night of November 17, 2017, in a wooded area off of County Road 13 in Macon County, Alabama.
Twenty-nine-year-old Bambino Gold’s body was discovered four miles away from that of his cousin, 30-year-old Kendrick Stokes. Stokes’ body was found at around 4:00 a.m. on Saturday morning (November 18, 2017). Stokes goes by the moniker Skooly Kee Da Tooly.
Macon County Sheriff Andre Brunson said, “They were not far off of the road at all, it looks like somebody placed them there. I don’t think they were killed there.”
Friends and family last heard from both of them on November 5, 2017. Two days later, a missing person’s report was filed. Both of them were seen on the Sunday in Montgomery, Alabama, driving a white 2016 Honda CRV with a Georgia licence plate.
Both Stokes and Bambino Gold are said to be originally from Montgomery, Alabama. Reportedly, on November 4, Stokes was in the city to do promotion on a party at Sky Bar. The next day, his cousin joined him. On November 5, both of them left Stokes’ home to go to the Alabama National Fair. They were seen at the fair by many.
After that, the pair are said to have gone to an undisclosed friend’s house, reportedly arriving around 10:55 p.m. That’s the last location Stokes and Reeves were said to have been seen. They could not be reached by cell phone once they left that friend’s house.
The duo were very close friends and were related as cousins by marriage.
Upon hearing the news about the death of both Bambino Gold and Stokes, their uncle Carl Vandiver said, “We have two young men whose lives have been taken away, and now we have to bury them together.”
