Antron Singleton aka "Big Lurch," an up-and-coming rapper from Texas, was charged with murdering a Los Angeles woman in April, after a detective's report showed there were teeth marks on her face and lungs, which were torn from her chest, according to the Los Angeles Times.
Due to the extreme nature of the crime, Singleton was being held without bail until his arraignment on June 13.
A medical examination conducted shortly after his arrest, found flesh in Singleton's stomach that wasn't his own.
In Compton Superior Court Wednesday, Los Angeles Detective Raymond Jankowski said he found the body of the Tynisha Ysais, 21, Singleton's alleged victim, in her apartment with her chest torn open. Jankowski also reported that he found a three-inch blade broken off in the victim's shoulder blade and her lungs appeared to be chewed and torn.
"Her chest was open, exposing internal organs," Jankowski told the Los Angeles Times.
A friend of Ysais, Alisa Allen, reported that she saw Singleton naked in the street, covered in blood, staring at the sky. After contacting the police, who arrested Singleton, Allen then discovered Ysais lying dead in her apartment.
According to reports, Ysais' boyfriend admitted that he and Singleton were smoking PCP the night before the murder.
According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), PCP is a white powdery drug that generally causes abusers to become disturbed, delusional, violent, paranoid and fearful when it is sniffed, smoked, or eaten.
Davey D, a hip-hip activist of www.daveyd.com, said he got to know Singleton when he worked as a personality at California radio station KMEL 106.1. He said the crime that Singleton is accused of doesn't fit his personality nor is it indicative of hip-hop music. "I don't think this fits anyone's rap persona. PCP is capable of taking anyone out of their mind. This is bigger then hip-hop," he told BET.Com.
"It begs to question what is going on that so many people feel they got to take a mind altering substance to remove them from their natural mind state," he queried. "At times the world is a crazy place and this situation with Big Lurch proves that."
As Big Lurch, Singleton has rapped with popular rappers like Jive Records' artist Mystikal and E-40 of California.
... How does one get teeth-marks on their lungs?! I sure hope this is a faux pas by the reporter...
A big lunch for Big Lurch!
I'd think it's because the animal chewed and ate at her lungs, after splitting her open with a knife.
(And, DANG. This guy deserves to be locked up. Badly.)
I just don't know why every parent doesn't welcome rap music into their home. What possible bad influence could it have on the minds of their children? What possible bad influence could it have on our society or our neighborhoods? Special thanks to our wonderful record industry, with all of the wonderful people who run it and all of the wonderful things they've inflicted on us all.
