According to San Antonio Express-News, his friends contacted the police after the rapper had not been in touch for several days. Law enforcers found the musician’s body in his apartment.

A warrant has been issued for the arrest of 21-year-old rapper Sasha Skare, who is suspected of murdering Derwen, local television station KSAT reports. The musician previously produced her single. It is not known what else can connect her with married Martell.

She was previously charged with aggravated assault with a weapon following a 2019 shooting that killed one man and injured another. Skare was released on bail in January 2020, but the case is still under investigation.

Derwen’s friend Brian Mitchell said that the rapper did not advertise his relationship with Beyoncé.
