It seems that they were close with Melly as both were seeking to be rappers and Williams was also known as YNW Sakchaser and Thomas was also known as YNW Juvy. And obviously, Melly says that he did not commit the murder and he has also tweeted saying, “Over jealousy, they took my brothers away from me.” He also added that the murder wants him to break down and wants him in prison so he can stop.

He also thanked all of his fans saying that he lost his two brothers and he is thankful for each and every fan for being supporting him and loving him and he lastly added that even though there are lies and rumors spreading God is with him.

The police believe that Melly is the one who shot Williams and Thomas, and according to the reports, his friend Cortlen Henry who is also known as YNW Bortlen was also charged with murder. It is believed that Henry helped Melly to make the murder look like a driveby shooting and Melly and Henry were the only ones to survive. Henry also took Williams and Thomas to the hospital to make it look like they did not kill them.

Later Melly caught covid and he asked to be on house arrest and his lawyer also tried to free him saying that it’s dangerous for Melly to stay in prison as the prison does not have or was not giving him good medical treatment but the victim’s families asked for Melly to be in prison and they also added that he might threaten the witnesses if he’s out from prison.

On July 12, 2019, he even posted a video on his Instagram account with a caption saying that he’ll be home soon but It is not for him to decide that now is it? Even though he was saying he’ll be home soon, there’s a high chance of the State of Florida giving him the death penalty if he’s found guilty according to the reports.
