Red hot discussion continues surrounding the murder of Tyrone "Ty Crack" Washington at Epic Nightclub and music videos (click here and also here) apparently referencing the murder.
The image above, though published here for the first time by any media source, is old news to police. In fact, MPR wrote an extensive piece about a warrant served in this matter which sought material published on social media shortly after Washington's murder.
However, an anonymous and actually unknown-even-to-me source with a fake email account has been sending material my way to "shine a light" on Washington's murder. Some of this material (not yet published here) seems to overlap things the police were seeking, other stuff is ambiguous...
What does "#CrackKills" mean, anyway? Does that REALLY mean "My gang helped kill Tyrone 'Ty Crack' Washington"? I say the meaning is not certain and it may represent nothing more than rejoicing over an enemy's death; unseemly but not illegal. But the message above...
Yeah, that's a little less ambiguous. Not smoking gun proof, not enough to get you indicted, but certainly enough to provoke a justified police interrogation.
James Horshaw Jr (who published the message above on his Facebook account, apparently, shortly after the death of Tyrone Washington) is one of the individuals in the "Kobe Diss" video and can be seen singing near the end. Tall and handsome, with a distinctive face, he's easy to spot.
I have looked up Horshaw's modest criminal record online but don't have time to publish it quite yet. Here's an image from Horshaw's Facebook page....

Horshaw is the guy on the far right wearing the "RIP" shirt.
JNS blog says: Wow. That's quite the shirt collection. All that killing is certainly keeping the custom t-shirt industry in business, isn't it?
