WAYNE COUNTY, MI. (THECOUNT) — Missing rappers, Armani Kelly, 28, Dante Wicker, 31, and Montoya Givens, 31, have been identified as the bodies found in a “rat infested,” abandoned apartment complex in Wayne County, Michigan.

The three musicians were found in Highland Park after being reported missing by a family member of one of the men on January 23.


The bodies were found in an apartment complex roughly 6 miles northwest of Detroit.

A cause of death was not provided.

The bodies have been transported to the Wayne County Medical Examiner’s Office.

“These autopsy results may take up to 48 hours due to the fact that in extreme cold, they may not be able to perform autopsies right away,” the Wayne County Coroner told reporters.

Police were first alerted to the men’s disappearance by Kelly’s mother, who reported him missing on Jan. 23, said Michael McGinnis, commander of major crimes at the Detroit Police Department.

“That mother became very proactive in the investigation and started searching for her vehicle through OnStar,” McGinnis said this week.

The mom located the vehicle in Warren, Michigan, just a few miles from Highland Park, McGinnis said, and authorities recovered the vehicle on January 23.
