NYC Man Found In Trash Bag Allegedly Killed For Snitching [PHOTOS]

 

A 33-year-old NYC man who was found brutally murdered inside a trash bag last week may have been killed for the age-old violation of the street code known as “snitching.”

News outlets this past Monday, March 24 prematurely reported that former NBA basketball player Quinton Ross was found decomposing in a shallow grave. Clarity later surfaced to find that it was actually Quynton Ross, a photographer from Jamaica, Queens.

When Ross didn’t come home that Sunday night, his mother used the “Find My iPhone” app to trace his phone and it when it came up on a boardwalk she notified police. After his body was discovered, police did some digging and found that a YouTube rap video contain vital information for breaking the case wide open.

Via DNA Info:

The execution-style murder of a photographer whose body was found in a trash bag in the Rockaways may have been revenge for “snitching” on three men who robbed him several years ago, DNAinfo New York has learned.

Law enforcement sources say Quynton Ross, 33, the father of a 4-year-old daughter, was the target of an ominous YouTube video that denounced him as a “snitch” and graphically depicted the street justice he should face for putting a trio of home invaders in state prison.

The video begins with a knock on the door of what is described as Ross’ home.

With rap music thumping in the background, the video presents a poster-like photo of Ross, with the words “Big Time Snitch” on it along with a Free Dictionary explanation that a “deponent is someone who gives evidence or acts as a witness.”

The video then shows someone flipping through pages of the 2011 indictment against the three suspects, accompanied by the muffled voice of an ominous narrator who says Ross “used to be their homeboy.”

A year earlier, Ross was robbed of cash, a watch, diamonds, earrings and his iPod inside his own home along with another man. Four months later, he and the other victim cooperated with authorities to help track down the armed robbers after they continued to pull heists in the nearby areas.

Somewhere in the list of Biggie’s popular song “Ten Crack Commandants,” consequences of snitching is eerily detailed similar to the instances in this murder.

Nonetheless, it is still a tragic story. Check the gallery for pics of Ross and his unfortunate final resting place.

  • Unknown

    My cousin wasn’t a snitch , they told on themselves cause there phones was wire tapped. They killed my cousin because they were mad & jealous to see him doing so good . He got out and got his while they had to scheme to even consider being on his level. I hope who did this to him goes to hell and dies for being a coward and taking my cousin life because they couldn’t face there own mistakes.

    Hiphop is a bad influence on the black community

    • sycamore

      No.

    • drester

      Hiphop is a bad influence not just only on the black community, but anyone that listens to it. The positive aspect of it is gone. It was good back in the day when they did not have to talk about robbing people, killing people and getting high all on kinds of stuff. Its pathetic

      • Terry

        Unfortunately the powers that be on most record labels are white men who destroyed hip hop by taking the positive message out and putting in all that crap. No creativity or positive messages

  • Mississippi Librarian

    I am truly flabbergasted, so am I to understand that simply because we are Black we should be able to rob, steal, pillage from each other and go about our merry way with the stolen stuff? That is crazy, There is something seriously wrong with people who have that mindset. If you want some “stuff’ get a job and buy your own, don’t try to take it from other people. I have no sympathy for thieves, they belong in jail. May this young man rest in peace.

  • tarrilove

    This no snitchin is corny. These thugs don’t even live by that code. When they get caught they rat so fast its not funny. Also, its not snitchin if you report a robbery. Its snitchin if you participated and the tell on friends. I don’t consider someone being a good citizen a snitch. What happens when its your family missing or victimized?

    • Krissy

      Agreed

    • Terry

      That’s what needs to be taken out of the black community. Ignorance is at an all time high amongst our people

  • Dam Shame

    This is exactly why I WOULD “snitch” in heartbeat!!! There’s no honor in the hood. Didn’t the article say that they all used to be friends…. Jealous ni99az are always a threat, even if u haven’t done anything to them. The truth is they don’t need a reason to rob or kill you, they just do it & expect everybody to ignore it. Black people need to stop being scared & ban together in the hood along with the police and declare absolute war on these nuckleheads who terrorize the community.

  • momsaysweremovingtoboston

    Like I always say CRABS IN A BARREL! R.I.P brother ur daughter will remember u as her hero and u will always live on through her.

  • tammy

    Dang…Victims can’t identify the person who victimized them ..now??? So if someone rob or beat me..I’m gonna be a snitch..for telling who victimized me? That’s crazy..These thugs going to far now.

  • jmjg

    I am truly starting to hate Some Black males. This ish is getting so out of control. They are destroyers of their own and don’t care.

  • MocaPretty

    DISGUSTING! I hope whoever did that get life on top of life thrown at them. And they had the audasity to say that the guy was their homeboy why did they in turn rob him..if that’s how those ignorant thugs treat their homeboys smdh!

  • PolkaDots

    Tragic – But the BIBLE is clear – Colossians 3:25 – BUT HE THAT DOETH WRONG SHALL RECEIVE FOR THE WRONG WHICH HE HATH DONE: AND THERE IS NO RESPECT OF PERSONS — Vengeance is the Lord’s

    These cats were DEAD wrong on both accounts.

  • icess

    I’m confused so the robbers felt that they should have no consequences or should ole’ boy have murdered them for robbing him? guess they would have had respect for that…i’m just confused..smh…R.I.P…nice looking brotha too. twisted thinking ppl have these days…I hurt you but you wrong to tell or get back at me…how stupid are you.

  • mommydear

    It really pulls at your heart strings everytime you hear one of these stories (which is.pretty much everday). Hopefully justice will be served for this young man and his family.

  • Al Satan

    Hopefully their a-holes will need stitches all because they killed someone for snitching.

  • Jay Lamont
