Germ, a rising Atlanta rapper, saw a man abduct his girlfriend just hours before she was found dead last Friday (Aug. 13). According to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Germ told the 911 operator that he watched as a man held a gun to Mariam Abdulrab’s head and forced her into his vehicle. “Somebody just left with my girlfriend,” the rapper told the operator in the leaked audio. “Oh my God. Bro, I just watched her get kidnapped from in front of my house. What the fuck. Oh my fucking God.”
The dispatcher then asked Germ if his girlfriend was taken at gunpoint. He replied, “Yes. I watched it all through my window in my front yard. He had a gun pointed to her and he forced her into a car. He had on a security shirt.”
Four hours later, Abdulrab’s body was found near an abandoned home on Lakewood Avenue. According to investigators, she had been shot multiple times. On Tuesday (Aug. 17), 27-year-old DeMarcus Brinkley was booked into the Fulton County Jail for Abdulrab’s death after being identified as a person of interest.
Brinkley is being charged with murder, false imprisonment, aggravated assault, possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. He is currently being held without bond.
Last Friday, Germ took to Instagram to share several photos of himself with Abdulrab as he mourned her death. “DAMN TODAY IS A DIFF FEELING,” he captioned the post. “I WATCHED MY REAL LIFE BEST FRIEND RIPPED AWAY FROM ME THEN DIS WEIRDO HAD TO TAKE HER LIFE. SHIT IS SICK. I DNT KNW WAT TO DO SHIT IS STAND STILL BUT IMA MAKE SURE THEY REMEMBER HOW SELFLESS AND HAPPY YOU WERE. YOU DIDN’T DESERVE THIS MARIAM FOREVER.”
