Veteran DJ Erick Morillo Dead At 49



Erick Morillo was found dead in his Miami Beach home on the morning of September 1—he was 49. First reported by TMZ, the cause of Morillo’s death is currently unknown.

News of Morillo’s death comes just weeks after reports of the DJ being arrested in Miami on sexual battery charges in early August. The alleged victim claims she was assaulted by Morillo following a gig they both played, fighting off multiple sexual advances until she woke up to Morillo assaulting her. Morillo denied the accusations, though the venerated selector turned himself in to authorities after the results of a rape kit tested positive for his DNA on August 6. News of Morillo’s death arrives the same week as his scheduled court hearing.

Two Suspects Arrested In 2002 Murder Of DJ Jam Master Jay



Hip-hop pioneer Jam Master Jay’s murder has remained unsolved modern rap lore for nearly 20 years. Jason Mizell, best known for his role in the trailblazing hip-hop trio Run-DMC, was killed the night before Halloween in 2002, in his Jamaica, Queens recording studio. That night, two masked men entered the building, and one fatally shot Mizell in the head. Since then, despite the not-so-quiet speculation surrounding the murky details of the legendary DJ’s death, the case remained unsolved for nearly two decades. Now, two men, believed to have been Mizell’s former associates, have been arrested in connection with Jay’s murder.

According to separate law enforcement officials who each spoke to the New York Times on the condition of anonymity, federal prosecutors charged Ronald Washington, 56, and Karl Jordan Jr., 36, believed to be drug traffickers, with murder. While law enforcement has yet to officially detail the two mens’ involvement, investigators believe Mizell was financing the alleged drug-trafficking operation, and eventually the arrangement went south. According to one quoted official, “There was a beef—it didn’t go as planned.” Washington is already serving a federal prison sentence for robbery, while Jordan, who had previously been incarcerated for shooting Jay’s cousin, rapper Little Dee, in 2003, was taken into custody again on August 16.
