A man who was indicted for killing the daughter of Three 6 Mafia’s Crunchy Black has been arrested and charged with murder in a separate shooting.
According to ABC 24, Lamont Murray has been charged with second-degree murder for his involvement in a shooting that took place after an argument on Sunday afternoon (Nov. 7). One man has died from his injuries.
Over the summer, Murray was indicted on charges stemming from a deadly shooting that took place in August 2020 where he was accused of fatally shooting Ashley Carter Richardson, the daughter of Crunchy Black, and Waquel Richardson.
Police were called to the Fairview Inn and Suites in southeast Memphis on Aug. 28, 2020 following the shooting. Authorities found Waquel’s body in the hotel lobby and Ashley’s body inside a car in the parking lot. Both victims had been shot several times.
A few days later, authorities spotted the vehicle that matched the suspect’s car from the hotel surveillance video of the shooting. Murray was later found hiding in the attic of a home that was searched. He admitted to police that he spray painted the vehicle to hide distinctive markings and told them that the Richardsons were shot as “gang retaliation” for a double homicide that took place a few weeks prior.
The 2020 shooting case against Murray was later dismissed due to a lack of evidence. However, in June 2021, a grand jury indicted the 32-year-old on first-degree murder charges and tampering with/fabricating evidence in the shooting. He was not taken into custody for that indictment until this past Sunday.
Crunchy Black previously spoke about his daughter’s tragic death during an interview with VladTV. He said that when he found out about her death from his oldest son, he “just shut down for a minute.”
Murray’s bond is set for $2,000,000.
