LAUREL, MS (WDAM) -

New details have emerged regarding the 18-year-old suspect charged with the murder of a Laurel High School student.

Several Facebook users have contacted Seven On Your Side with a screenshot of a Facebook status, claiming the post was made to Mekel Crumbly’s page after the incident.

The post read:

“Ni*** yo life don’t mean s*** to me And right now you acting like it don’t mean s*** to you.”

The Facebook profile containing the update has since been removed from Facebook, but many users are still sharing the screenshot image.

Crumbly was charged with the murder of Tamerick Drummond Wednesday. He was given a $250,000 bond.

This isn’t the first social media post on Facebook referencing the incident. A Laurel boy who claimed to have witnessed the murder answered questions about the moments leading up to Tamerick’s death on a Facebook live video. 

Crumbly was also considered an up-and-coming rap artist by his peers. A soundcloud profile has been shared on social media as well, revealing his rap music.
