What Did It Mean When James Horshaw Jr Wrote "we kill da Nerds just got da kall dat kill confirmed?" Does This Reference Tyrone "Ty Crack" Murder At Epic Nightclub?

Contributed image, blog post by John Hoff

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?

I am compelled to post something just to counter the illiteracy of the other comments. Interesting work so far in uncovering this. Maybe these fine youngsters will think twice about the way they use social media. They don't seem to think twice about murdering people.

fuck this dum ass shit make a post about Kim porter having Ty pop off for his insurance money.....

Johnny, is the site www.creditcardguns.com supplying guns to these asshats via straw buys? I have it on authority that the proprietor lost his FFL. He was also told to C&D from selling NFA trust DIY kits. And he purportedly trains LEOs. So sorry to hear naive North Venters are about to be taken by this dude - but with a site name like Creditcardguns, what can go wrong? Use your contacts and follow up on this as only you can.

That article is old we been seen that. What doesn't make sense is when the video "no competition" went out why weren't these fools brought back in for questioning. Then when the "Kobe diss" came out it's like basically your throwing it in our face that yea we shot him and so what? the police need to do they job they got enough fuckin evidence between videos and this blogs. Jonny what's your email so I can send you these screen shots of got off their social websites.

Who is Kim Porter?

Stupid race-baiting comment rejected. How about you sit at home in your argyle socks and let them work it out on this comment thread for themselves? You have nothing original to say.

she is Ty old ass girlfriend lol she got insurance money when he died

Ty had life insurance? If I were an actuary, the cost of life insurance would go up with every tattoo on the would-be insured. With a surcharge for "Only God can judge me".

You're not letting them work it out for themselves, they never will with words. They will continue to hold your neighborhood hostage and YOU are going to have a lot of blood on your hands because of your antics. For what, blog hits?

Johnny Northside! said...

Let me get this straight. I'll somehow have blood on my hands if I don't publish your previous "all black people etc etc" comment which I rejected?

No. That's not how I see it. I think your comment is stupid and racist. I think there's a good discussion happening here between a young, urban group of people who have grievances with each other. And I think your stupid comment and my attempt to answer you just gets in the way of that discussion.

Go away. Go to some blog where your simple-minded stereotypes and race baiting are welcomed.

I wonder if this has anything to do with the threats being leveled on this blog, and on social media.

I went there but I don't see any comments...?

No, I mean that there are threats all over YOUR blog between gang members, and I wonder how long it will be before one of them shoots somebody. Having read all of the reader comments (which are hard to understand) on your blog regarding the Ty Washington murder, it seems like it's only a matter of time before someone gets killed again.

Johnny Northside! said...

Oh, the troll who hates the blog every day of the week is articulating another reason today why the troll hates the blog. You bore me, troll.

Anonymous said...

People thought it was you that got killed today John, it even passed through my mind when I seen the headline.. I suggest you stay armed (if you're even in Minneapolis) you're now caught in the middle of what will be the worst bloodbath Minneapolis has experienced since 96.

Anonymous said...

Interesting. If there are threats between gang members on this blog, shouldn't the Minneapolis police be watching this blog?

The Valley? What is the Valley?

Johnny Northside! said...

Yeah, actually nobody thought that. That's just some stupid crap made up by stupid trolls. Not one person on the whole earth thought that, including the troll itself, who knows very well the troll made it up.

Valley is golden valley road ground zero for the 19's home turf. John there are postings about killing you, you just can't decipher it... The police are watching I'm sure of it MPDK was used in comments here and that means MPD killer whenever there is a K behind something it means they want to kill that person.. Kind of like 19K, TBK, YntK.. Anyways it did pass through my mind and I'm not a troll of yours John. People have made threats against you here over the last few days you just don't have a clue what half of them are talking about. Stay armed and ready. It was just posted today that mental mids posted your pic on Facebook with the caption "I'm on your ass" it doesn't mean he is attracted to you it means the taliban and ynt crew want to kill you. If you have no clue that they are making threats to you then you need to get out in this community more or get some street smarts from somewhere. You are a make dead in the middle of a gang war and if somebody does get charged with this they will most definitely try to kill you. You're not the only one that can look up public info.. Be careful and stay ready

Johnny Northside! said...

Yeah, I didn't see my picture on Mental Mid's facebook page. As far as I can tell that didn't happen, nor did the caption under the photo happen. These things happened only in the minds of a troll and in the comments made by a troll. I was told when I started blogging five years ago that I'd be KILLED for what I was blogging. I get told that, like, about once a week at least. (Shrugs)

But I do what I do. The chicks dig it.

Just be careful because this is going to be a awfully bloody summer way worse then it's been in the last 15 years. A war has started and it will only end by everyone dieing or being locked up.

I'm the person who said there are threats on here between gang members. I'm not a troll. I follow this blog and think it's interesting. They are also threatening each other on Facebook. I'm not saying that you're the cause of the threats; just that they are commenting here and making threats. Things seem to be heating up and it just seems like something rotten is going to happen.

Anonymous said...

And the reason I emphasized YOUR blog is because you seemed to think I was referring to the news site and comments there (and as you said, there weren't any). Just making clear what I was talking about.

He had it up believe it or not smh .

Anonymous said...

Some are naive about how crazy these guys are, he probably had the photo friends only just not public. Some of these guys are straight killers and have no problem shooting anyone right in front of anybody including the police.. what happened in epic is a prime example 19 cops there and a thousand people..

Anonymous said...

Johnny, I am friend with Mental Mid on FB and the pic us there with the caption "Im on your Ass". You probably can't see it because you all aren't friends. Be safe and God bless

Akram Mohammad just got out ...he's the new 19 leader....kill him

Johnny Northside! said...

You need to be aware that what you just posted is against the law and if the police could figure out who you are, you'd be charged with something.

Johnny Northside! said...

And nobody named "Akram Mohammad" just got out of Hennepin County jail, FYI, because I just checked. This comment is probably from a troll just trying to cause trouble. One of the trolls is named "Don Allen" and the other is named "Jim Watkins."

Lol who the fuck is Akram Mohammad and since when is he the leader of 19??? The Leader is gone may he rest in Peace, there is NO replacing him.
