Rapper Twista’s bodyguard was found shot to death and lit on fire in a South Side apartment.

Davy “6’9″ Easterling was found shot and burned in a South Side Chicago home at 6 a.m. last Friday. That same day, Twista posted on Instagram and Twitter that Easterling had been missing for three days.

Once Easterling’s body was found, Twista tweeted, “#RIP Davy Easterling aka 6’9 I have lost too many good friends to these streets.”

Easterling had a license and was trained to carry a weapon, Chicago Tribune reports. Fire Department spokesman Larry Langford confirmed that the fire had been started by a person. An investigation is ongoing.

Twista’s name is a nod to his ability to rap fast. The Chicago native previously was known as Tung Twista.
