Rockford, IL – The worst possible outcome has been realized in the case of EBE Bandz, the Chicago rapper who reportedly went missing back on June 1.
According to 23 WIFR, Rockford Police found the 23-year-old musician’s lifeless body on Thursday (June 20) at 5200 Indian Avenue in Winnebago County, an incorporated region.
William Arzate and Manuel Ramirez, both 22-years-old and of Rockford, Illinois were both arrested in connection with the crime. Arzate is charged with two counts of first-degree murder and concealment of a homicidal death. Ramirez is staring down a single count of concealment of a homicidal death.
Police are also searching for 20-year-old Dakota Graff, who is considered a person of interest and wanted on a number of unrelated warrants.
Big C, Bandz’s manager, has since assumed control of his Instagram account and says Arzate was once considered a “friend.”
Arzate’s bail has been set at $1 million, while Ramirez is currently being held on a $50,000 bond inside Winnebago County Jail.
“We are looking for other persons of interest,” Rockford Police Chief Dan O’Shea told the local news.
