Rapper Young Vito has been named the prime suspect in the murder of Mario “Slim Dunkin” Hamilton at an Atlanta studio late last week. The 28-year old suspect born Vinson Hardimon is still at large and a warrant has been issued for his arrest. The warrant is for Young Vito’s protection because he is believed to be in danger.
MSDTV visited Young Vito’s Facebook page to see what fans are saying about Slim Dunkin’s death. With the exception of one fan who is adamant Slim Dunkin “got what he deserved,” many are questioning Young Vito’s motive for allegedly murdering Slim Dunkin and are denouncing the act.
Police are seeking the public’s help in finding Young Vito and said calls can be made to Atlanta Crimestoppers at 404-577-TIPS (8477) or contact the Atlanta Police Department’s homicide unit at 404-546-4235.
Slim Dunkin was laid to rest earlier today. He was sent home by several hundred family members, friends and associates. At Slim Dunkin’s funeral, there was no mention of his stage name or that of Brick Squad members in attendance including Juaquin Malphurs AKA Waka Flocka Flame.
Although a life has been lost, we hope cooler heads prevail.
Stay tuned for more news from MSDTV.
