Police Name Suspect In Slim Dunkin Murder
Thursday (December 22) marked the first breakthrough in the Murder of Brick Squad Rapper, Slim Dunkin, as police have identified a suspect. Rapper Young Vito (28), has been identified in the murder of Dunkin, and has been advised to turn himself into custody. Vito, whose real name is Vinson Hardimon, is currently at large and authorities suspect his safety is in jeopardy.
“We are urging Mr. Hardimon to turn himself in to authorities because we have reason to believe he may be in danger,” the release said.
Vito is known around Atlanta as the “Zone 6 Street Legend-turned-Rapper.” While the description of Hardimon’s character may indicate his short control over his temper, by no means does it justify his behavior.
The breakthrough in the case came after Waka Flocka and Gucci Mane planned a very elaborate home-going celebration for Dunkin, whose real name is Mario Hamilton. Two limos were going to transport Dunkin’s family, along with a “white horse-drawn carriage, massive white floral arrangements, and a white dove release ceremony.” Dunkin and Flocka grew up together, so it’s only fitting that he’d want to see his childhood friend celebrated to the fullest extent.
Gucci and Flocka have also offered to pay for a bulk of the ceremony. Police are seeking the public’s help in finding Young Vito and said calls can be made to Atlanta Crimestoppers at 404-577-TIPS (8477) or contact the Atlanta Police Department’s homicide unit at 404-546-4235.
