Court documents show that witnesses came to police with information about rapper Antwain Steward’s song “Ride Out,” which investigators believe contains information about a double murder committed in Virginia.
Steward, 22, who goes by Twain Gotti made the song in which detectives believe he describes committing the two unsolved murders. NBC’s Newport News affiliate, WAVY, reports that an anonymous tip led the police to listen to the lyrics.
“Listen, walk to your boy and I approached him, 12 midnight on his traphouse porch and everybody saw when I [expletive] smoked him, roped him, sharpened up the shank then I poked him, 357 Smith & Wesson [unintelligible] scoped him,” Steward raps in the song.
Who puts something in a song that they did like that,” Horton’s sister, Tai Horton, told the station. “It’s crazy. That’s what I think. Why would he do that?”
Police believe Steward shot Brian Dean in the head while he was sitting on the front porch of his Virginia home. They also believe he shot Christopher Horton, 16, who was found dead behind the same home with a gunshot wound to his torso. It appears Steward and two other suspects were involved with a street gang called Wickzoo in 2007.
Steward is being held without bond on two counts of felony murder, one count of unlawfully discharging a firearm and two counts of use of a firearm in the commission of a felony.
