On Sunday (July 30), a 55-gallon metal barrel washed up at Malibu Lagoon State Beach in California. A few people saw it but didn’t pay much attention. Something that fell from a cargo ship? Probably. It had the logo of a printing company, so maybe it fell off a trash barge.
On Monday, a lifeguard wandered over for a look. When he tried to right it, he thought “This is oddly heavy.” So he opened it up. Inside was the naked body of rising LA rapper who goes by the name Sirtanky.
Sirtanky–real name: Javonnta Murphy–was very dead. In fact, because there was little decomposition, he hadn’t been that way for a while. The journey it took to get washed up on that beach is unknown.
Police have opened a full indication, stating that the death of this naked man sealed inside a 55-gallon drum was the result of “foul play.”
