This news appears to be the first update on a suspect in the Young Dolph murder case since the day he was shot and killed inside Makeda’s Butter Cookies in Memphis on November 17 last year. On November 18, 2021, a day after Dolph’s death, police released footage of the alleged vehicle driven by the suspected killers of the CEO of Paper Route Empire. Photos of the culprits were also released, but the images did not clearly show their faces and their identities were not disclosed.
The two suspects were driving a white Mercedes-Benz, which they parked a few yards from Dolph’s camouflage-colored Corvette before pulling into the cookie shop. Both men wore hoodies, sweatpants and face coverings.
However, police issued a BOLO alert – Be on the lookout – for the vehicle at this time.
On November 21, 2021, the Memphis Police Department reportedly discovered the white Mercedes-Benz after responding to a shooting call in the 1100 block of Bradley Street where there was one fatality – a man who has been reported death at the scene. .
The vehicle, believed to be Dolph’s suspected killer getaway car, was towed a short distance from where the unidentified man was killed. However, the MPD had not confirmed that the car was involved in the murder of Young Dolph.
