Farmville, Sep 21, (THAINDIAN NEWS) In a shocking incident, a 20 year old rapper named Richard Alden Samuel McCroskey III is said to have been charged with the gruesome murder of four people in central Virginia. McCroskey, whose rapper’s alias is allegedly Syko Sam, is said to be a resident of California. On Saturday, September 19, the airport police officials had reportedly caught McCroskey from the airport and charged him with the brutal murders. He was kept in the Farmville prison over the weekend.
Since then it has been revealed that he has been charged with first degree murder, robbery as well as the stealing of a car. One of the identified victims among the four that he is alleged to have murdered is supposed to be a pastor at the Walker’s Presbyterian Church in Virginia, known as Mark Niederbrock. The other four victims found at the home of a college professor still remains to be identified.
According to the police, the initial probe in to the violent murders have been slow as the identity of the victims could not be made out very easily because of some reasons that the authorities chose not to highlight. It has been revealed though that when the police had raided the McCroskey residence in Castro Valley, the McCroskey family was largely missing from the scene. It was revealed by a neighbor, that the family had stepped away to avoid the glare of the media.
Rapping under the alias of Syko Sam, McCroskey’s rapping is said to have consisted of violent depictions in its lyrics, a trail which the authorities are perusing closely, during the course of the investigation. His music mostly deals with mutilation, deaths and other such gruesome acts.
