As Boosie’s murder trial continues to play out in a Baton Rouge courtroom, the prospects of him beating his case may have gone from slim to none due to potentially damning evidence found on his computer. The ray of hope initially came when reported hitman-for-hire “Marlo Mike” Louding recanted his story on Monday. But yesterday, a forensics expert pulled photos and music from a PC belonging to Boosie that paint a picture of him being tied to the murders he’s accused of orchestrating.
“Constantino Dimitirelos examined hard drives taken from computers belonging to Hatch. He says two pictures were found on the computer. One of Michael “Marlo Mike” Louding getting a tattoo of an AK-47 with “Yo Boosie, Who’s Next” around it, at Hatch’s home at 10:35 p.m. on November 4, 2009. He says he also found a picture of Adrian Pittman getting an AK-47 on his back with the words “Who’s Next” around it, on the same night. That’s after the October 21, 2009 murder of Terry Boyd.”
Dimitirelos also indicated that several songs were created on October 20 and 21 of 2009, both of which are dates close to the murder.
“The lyrics to a song called “187” were played for jurors. Dimitirelos says the lyrics were recorded between 11:24 and 11:54 on the night of October 20. Some of those lyrics: Yo Marlo, he drive a Monte Carlo. That (expletive) gray, I want him dead today [sic]. Here go the cake.
“At 12:50, the lyrics to “Bodybag” were recorded. Ten days after the Boyd murder, the song “Somebody in Trouble” were recorded on November 2, 2009. Those lyrics were also played for the jurors. Some of those lyrics: I got some killers on payroll and they know, when it’s time to handle business (expletive) better lay low.
“A song titled “Lime Life” [sic] was also played. It was recorded May 21, 2009. Some of those lyrics say: If you don’t squeeze your trigga that reaper come and get you….ain’t no love in my body, Marlo Mike up in the backseat begging for a body.“
Prosecutors also had the expert examine a cell phone belonging to Louding. Although calls placed on the night of the murder can’t be traced to any phones tied to Boosie, the GPS tracking was engaged and the prosecution’s expert testified calls were placed in vicinity of the murder scene before moving back in a direction towards Boosie’s home.
In defense, Boosie’s lawyers argued the songs weren’t relevant to the murders, explaining them away as rehashed lyrics and nothing more than fiction. Jason Williams, a member of the defense team remarked, “This is a man who was making music, spending time and energy to develop a persona to sell records. Same way NWA did, same way Public Enemy does. Same way Johnny Cash did.”
If that’s the case, Bad Azz may have potentially oversold his lifestyle to a point of no return.
