Police have arrested an ex-con whom they believe shot rapper Kampane in the head in a vacant Englewood home, set fire to the building, recovered the rapper’s charred body the next day, and left it in the rear cargo of his SUV.
Randy K. Manning and two accused accomplices are being held in connection with the crime, reports the Cliffview Pilot . Manning is being held on $2 million bail.
Authorities have “not ruled out the possibility of further arrests, including other(s) who may have been aware of the murder and who may have assisted Manning in its coverup,” said Bergen County Prosecutor John L. Molinelli early Saturday (August 20) afternoon.
According to the prosecutor, Manning shot Kampane in the head and chest several times with a .40-caliber handgun.
“The shooting may have been related to a dispute or involvement over money,” said Molinelli.
The accused accomplices are Delroy Clarke, 23, and Natuchka Etienne, 23. The latter is Manning’s girlfriend. Clarke allegedly picked up Manning after recovering the charred body. Clarke is being held on $50,000 bail, charged with hindering Manning’s apprehension.
Etienne allegedly “tried to create a false alibi” for Manning. She is being held on $10,000 bail.
Manning, who was convicted in 2008 of eluding police, is now charged with murder, felony murder, burglary, illegal weapons possession, desecration of human remains, arson, witness tampering and hindering apprehension.
