Police Search Menomonee Falls Landfill for Body of a Milwaukee Man

The search for the body of a young rapper started on Monday morning. Officials believe the body was placed in a Dumpster.

Milwaukee police are searching the Menomonee Falls landfill for the body of a 22-year-old man who was beaten and killed nearly four weeks ago, reported Fox6Now.

At a press conference Monday morning police said they believe the body of Evon Young, a rapper, was placed in a Dumpster near 49th and Hampton early in January. 

The search began around 9:30 a.m.

Officials believe the body of Young is somewhere in the 200 square foot area based on records provided by Waste Management. Crews will have to go through debris of between 14 and 15 feet deep.

Five men are accused of murdering the young rapper. 

Fox6Now reports that according to the criminal complaint, the five defendants were at Young’s home when his roommate accused Young of stealing. Police say the men put a bag over his head, beat him with tools and took turns strangling him before shooting him three times.

*It is presumed dead, yes. Family would like some closure.

Evidence, medical exam, family, sanitary, etc. The dump is not a burial ground unless you're in the mob.

To prosecute, duh! I hope they find him!

Rapper or not, is this not a human being paying a pretty hefty price for and accusation of stealing? People come in all different shapes and sizes, but to have your final resting place be a Dumpster and ultimately a landfill, truly your heart must empathize for this person and their family in some small way.

Now I can better type/comment. To elaborate: What GOOD does rap promote? B*tches/Hos, Disrespect to ALL, lyrics contain graphic & articulated (NOT so well) VIOLENCE & oh so MUCH MORE. ONE WORD: ACCOUNTABILITY. We ALL make choices. If My children would choose to hand around an unsavory factor; I would NOT be surprised when & if that went Wrong. Let's say this a was type of Biker affiliation~then What?

How about feeling apathy for victims who had NOchoice.INNOCENT children. INNOCENT Elderly. You hear More about animal abuse(which I AM against)than these. WHYput in the article he is a rapper?Will thisGlorify or sensationalize the Story More?NO.It adds to the cliche programming.Is the same respect given in a woman/child that is raped?NO.This isNOTabout music,although it does NOT lend anything of viable POSITIVE VALUE.This is a glorified, programmed lifestyle CHOSEN.If I would steal,I KNOW there would be repercussions;therefore,I doNOT. In some countries, I'm sure you've heard, they remove a hand for this Offense. Not my CHOICE, but, it is someone's for whatever purpose behind it. Bottom Line: we ALL Make CHOICES. ACCOUNTABILITY IS a RARE QUALITY. Do you cry out injustice for the 'mafioso' type buried like this, cement/other. No. Would you scream injustice for a bank robber that was shot in the commission of the crime? No. WHY is this DIFFERENT? That is what I was trying to project. Perhaps some traveling in order for an enlightened view of what's Really happening Out in the World. Humans are one of the most treacherous creatures to walk the planet. That genre of 'music' provides NOTHING of VALUE to the Human race. Period. Anyone here can listen to this; it's YOUR CHOICE, of YOUR FREE VOLITION~that's the Beauty of Making CHOICES. YOU Live with them. However, I am opt to refer to words of Wisdom~Your Actions (choices) AFFECT Others. So, back to that dirty word: Accountability.

I try to shy away from sweeping statements about anything in this world. For many people be it rap, rock, heavy metal, country, etc. it's an outlet for people's inner self and a projection of their own reality. Main stream, corporate, rap tends to manifest the stereotypes you identify. However, most mainstream pop art is shallow, manufactured, and appeals to lower drives in the human race. However, I believe all rape, murder, and violence is an unfortunate result of broken human beings. I believe in a higher potential for all individuals, and I will refuse to simply reside myself to believing in the lowest potential for human beings. Yes, there is evil in the world, but we all have potential for so much good. What is wrong with having remorse for a victim of a heinous crime, rather than seeking to justify cruelty.

Craig, I understand your point. No, humans should not be murdered, senselessly. But, I think you're missing a basic point~even in your last comment: He knew something about a burglary. (I'm not pretending to know all detailsNEVER will. I wasn't there) Another quip comes to mind: NO HONOR among thieves. The fact he knew these people & knew their doings would indicate he was not a full blooded model citizen~no one is. Or did he witness this? Were they Strangers? No. Per Story: according to the criminal complaint, the five defendants were at Young’s home when his roommate accused Young of stealing. & what were the items taken worth doing this? So many details unknown. My Point: Accountability. Choices. The people you know & CHOSE to CONTINUE Surrounding yourself with. Unless you know this ADULT/s personally, you really don't know. & this white girl here could put out a 'rap'vid..or Country vid & that does not make me those. The point of this in the story is what? Other than the obvious. & I think you forgot to mention your truck! ;)

Carl, this IS All Programming within 'Groups" & yes, people fulfill stereotypes due to hype & being taught, or lack of, what they are trying to project. YES, we as Humans CAN make the RIGHT choices. Think I covered this...Outlets & projections Still affect Others. & yes, people are to the point of being broken, lack of morality. This starts from Birth & TEACHING children RIGHT from WRONG. Because when they are ADULTS, they have to decide within this REALITY. The stories I CAN Tell. I am OUT in public to not only learn, but offer solutions to certain aspects. GO OUT~TALK to Ppl, WATCH & Learn ppl in their finest form. They All cry victim & want to leave details out. Eventually ALL show their TRUE inner self. Even WITHOUT labels, people do not always make the RIGHT CHOICE. I know I've made mistakes...

You're correct Craig. I do not do lame stream media due to the fact it is just a distraction from the REAL Issues. & D*mn! Nothing left to do but empty that jug of moonshine, play this while you sit on yer front porch loaded down with shotguns.
