MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, FL. (THECOUNT) — Rapper Brian Trotter, was found dead inside a vehicle trunk in Miami, Florida on Sunday.
Robert Deupree Avery Coltrain, 25, was arrested and charged with illegal transport of human remains and second-degree murder in the death of the fellow 25-year-old, who went by the rap name, “Kent Won’t Stop.”
According to reports, Florida Highway Patrol responded to a crash on the Palmetto Expressway Sunday afternoon and found Coltrain and his silver Acura. Authorities said they became suspicious because they noticed buzzing flies and the smell of rotting flesh around the car.
Troopers towed the car to the parking lot of Hialeah’s Westland Mall and became suspicious of Coltrain when he asked to remove his belongings from the car, which included a gun case, reports FOXLA.
Troopers opened Coltrain’s trunk and found Trotter’s body “wrapped in a piece of fabric and in an advanced stage of decomposition,” the police report said.
An autopsy revealed Trotter was fatally shot multiple times.
A motive for the killing wasn’t immediately released. It’s unclear whether Coltrain had an attorney who could comment on his behalf.
Trotter was last seen on Oct. 17 leaving his home in Triangle, Virginia with Coltrain, who is also from Virginia.
The two had been friends for more than a decade. Trotter’s family said he was trying to forge a hip-hop career.
