United States: rapper J $ tash kills his partner and commits suicide


The 28-year-old rapper J $ tash was found dead on January 1 at his home in Los Angeles County (United States), next to the body of his partner.

He allegedly killed himself with a gun, after firing several bullets in the body of his girlfriend, Jeanette Gallegos, the media indicate.

According to the first elements of the investigation, an argument would have broken out between the couple. The rapper would then have taken the young woman of 27 years in a room of the house, by locking behind them. Then he would have shot him down before committing suicide. At the time of the incident, her three children were in the house. Aged 5 to 11, they would then have called their grandmother, then the 911 emergency number.

Quickly there, around 7 am, the police saw the children running against them. They then entered the rapper’s home, located in Temple City, and discovered the corpses.

An autopsy of both bodies should be performed in order to learn more about the circumstances of these deaths.

Little known in France, described as close to Rich The Kid, rapper J $ tash, Justin Joseph of his real name, had problems with the police in 2014, for a case of domestic violence. He was accused of hitting his then-partner in the body and in the face.
