YNW Melly, the Florida rapper who rose to fame with his hit song “Murder on My Mind”, is currently on trial for the murder of his two friends and fellow rappers, YNW Juvy and YNW Sakchaser. He faces the death penalty if convicted. A new report has has some people convinced he might actually beat a case, many people thought would be unbeatable.
YNW Melly’s DNA Not Found on the Jeep?
The prosecution claims that YNW Melly, whose real name is Jamell Demons, shot and killed his friends in a Jeep Compass on Oct. 26, 2018, and then staged a drive-by shooting with the help of another rapper, YNW Bortlen, who was driving the Jeep. They allege that YNW Melly had a motive to kill his friends because of a dispute over money and fame.
However, new evidence presented by the defense suggests that YNW Melly may not be guilty of the crime. According to a recent report by Local 10 News, the defense revealed that YNW Melly’s DNA was not found on or inside the Jeep where the shooting happened, except for on the car’s door handle. They also pointed out that no gunshot residue was found on YNW Melly himself, which would be expected if he fired a gun inside the car.
Moreover, the defense questioned the reliability of the cell phone data that the prosecution used to track YNW Melly’s whereabouts on the day of the murder. The FBI expert who analyzed the data admitted that it was not very precise and had a margin of error. The defense argued that the data did not prove that YNW Melly was holding that phone.
The defense also challenged the credibility of the medical examiners who testified about the gunshot wounds of the victims. They claimed that the examiners did not follow proper protocols and procedures when conducting the autopsies and collecting evidence. They suggested that some of the wounds could have been caused by glass shards or shrapnel from the car windows, rather than bullets.
The new evidence has sparked a wave of support for YNW Melly among his fans, who believe that he is innocent and will beat his case. Some of his fans have taken to social media to express their opinions and share memes about his trial. Some have also compared his situation to other famous rappers who faced legal troubles, such as Bobby Shmurda.
If YNW Melly beats his case it would be one of the most surprising legal moments in hip-hop history. He has maintained his innocence throughout his trial and has pleaded not guilty to the charges.
