According to a new report, rapper Archie Eversole was shot in the face while he was sleeping.
Before he passed, he told investigators that someone had broken into his bedroom and he woke up to find a shotgun in his face. He was then asked if the shooter was still inside the home. He nodded but he refused to give them a name.
Eversole died 9 days later. He was 37.
As they searched the home, they found fresh blood on the front door and a trail of blood from the stairs to Eversole’s room, blood all over the bed, and the wall. Police spoke to Alexander Krause, Eversole’s brother, about the shooting and he them that he had been to the home earlier to check on his brother. But while talking to police, cops noticed that he had blood on his socks and was limping. Krause told them he was limping because he had a blister on his foot.
Krause was later arrested and charged with Eversole’s murder. Archie’s mother doesn’t think Krause shot his brother however. She said:
“They had no arguments. They had no feuds, ”she said to Fox 5.“ OK, no. And I know that. Yesterday I talked to the neighbor next door. I asked her and I say: Did you hear any arguments? Did you hear any fights? She said no. She didn’t hear anything. Not that day. Not any other day. ”
