Seattle-based rapper Freddy E has died in an apparent suicide, according to the King County Medical Examinerâ€™s office. The 22-year-old artist, whose full name is Frederick Eugene Buhl, posted chilling comments on Twitter before shooting himself Saturday.
"If there's a God then He's calling me back home. This barrel never felt so good next to my dome. It's cold & I'd rather die than live alone," Buhl Tweeted. "It's... all... bad... y'all. *puts finger around trigger*"
Buhl was best known for the YouTube channel he hosted, JERKTV, where he published spoken word and comedy pieces.
Though the reason behind Buhlâ€™s sudden apparent suicide is unknown, reports have speculated Buhlâ€™s ex-girlfriend, a rapper who goes by the name Honey Cocaine, may have caused the heartbreak that led to Buhlâ€™s death.
Cocaine responded to the accusations on Twitter and wrote, â€śTo say I caused what happened is ignorance. You know nothing about our friendship or the story, hate me if you feel... We loved each other.â€ť
In other tweet, Cocaine posted a screen shot of a text message conversation she had with Buhl Saturday evening where Buhl was expressing frustration and explaining no one but her understands what heâ€™s going through. She responded that â€śanything revolving around money is intertwined with evilâ€ť and to â€śkeep your soul pure cuz you can be a victim in a second.â€ť
An autopsy will be performed Monday to confirm the cause of death.
