Freddy E. Commits Suicide and Kat Stacks Calls Honey Cocaine the "Murderer"
"Fuck... my... life."
Those were among the last words of a 22-year-old MC named Freddy E. (born Frederick Eugene Buhl) who published 16 distraught Twitter updates in 107 minutes on Saturday, January 5, before killing himself.
Among the speculated motives for Buhl's suicide: A breakup with Toronto rapper Honey Cocaine about which he tweeted: "If there's a God then He's calling me back home. This barrel never felt so good next to my dome. It's cold & I'd rather die than live alone."
And obviously, even though she's approximately 3,352 miles away, Miami supergroupie Kat Stacks (freshly released from a Louisiana immigration detention center after two years) has joined the Twitter debate.

It all began with Freddy E.'s stream of increasingly disturbing Twitter messages:
Then after reports of Buhl's suicide surfaced and conjecture swirled about Honey Cocaine being the cause, the Toronto rapper responded via her own Twitter account @QueenHoneyC:
Now, Freddy E. is believed to have died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head. But while the King County Examiner's office has confirmed Buhl's suicide with the Seattle Times, the actual cause of death hasn't been released.
However, Kat Stacks (who was friendly with Buhl) claimed to have solved the case, even calling Ms. Cocaine a "murderer."
Surprisingly, though, Stacks eventually felt sorry and retracted her comments. And uncharacteristically, she also apologized.
