Bodies of missing Atlanta rappers found in Alabama

- The bodies of a missing Atlanta rapper and his cousin have been found in Alabama, authorities said.

Macon County Sheriff Andre Brunson told FOX 5 that the body of 29-year-old Edward Reeves, known as Bambino Gold, was found Friday night in a wooded area off County Road 13.

Police have also confirmed the second body that was found about 4 miles away from where Reeves was discovered on Saturday morning around 4 a.m. has been identified as his cousin, Kendrick Stokes. The 30-year-old Stokes is from Atlanta.

Reeves and Stokes were last heard from on Nov. 5. Stokes was also known as Skooly Kee Da Tooly,

They were both formally reported missing on Nov. 7.

The two men were last seen driving a white 2016 Honda CRV with a Georgia tag in Montgomery, Alabama last Sunday.

The family of the victims is struggling to even comprehend the loss.

"We have two young men whose lives have been taken away, and now we have to bury them together," the victims' uncle Carl Vandiver said.

Rosa Vandiver, the victims' aunt, said she didn't even want to imagine this to happen.

"I just thought he was going to come home," she said, tears in her eyes.

Investigators have not released a cause of death or a motive for the shootings.
