The missing case of Bambino Gold comes to a tragic halt.
It was just a little under two weeks ago on November 7th that Atlanta-based rapper Bambino Gold and his cousin Kendrick Stokes were reported missing, and now, in a tragic end to the case, both men's bodies have been found in Alabama.
According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, the bodies of Stokes and Bambino, born Edward Reeves, were found in Macon County, Alabama just 40 miles east of Montgomery. The publication reports that the first body was found in a wooded area off the area's County Road 13 while the second body was located in the woods off Highway 80, approximately four miles away from the first.
"They were not far off of the road at all," Macon County Sheriff Andre Brunson told AL.com. "It looks like somebody placed them there. I don't think they were killed there."
According to reports, Gold, 29, and Stokes, 30 were driving a 2016 white Honda CR-V with a Georgia license plate en route to Alabama on November 5th, and were last seen at the Sky Bar where Stokes was promoting a party in their hometown of Montgomery. "They just vanished into thin air,'' Stokes' mother, Felicia Stokes Webster told AL.com. "It's very devastating."
Stokes, also known as Skooly, worked as a promoter in and around the area since he was a teenager while Bambino Gold, a father, was known for his works alongside the likes of Boosie Badazz, Doe B. Alley Boy, Sy Ari Da Kid, and more, having appeared in a reported 150 mixtapes since 2011.
Currently, the Macon County Sheriff's Office, the Montgomery Police Department and the Alabama State Bureau of Investigation are all working together to solve the homicides.
