FBG Duck’s mom went live on her YouTube channel early on Wednesday morning (‘MOMMA DUCK CLOUT CHASER SLAYER’) to reveal that multiple suspects in her son’s murder have been identified and arrested by authorities.
She claimed that O-Block rapper Muwop was among the suspects being linked to Duck’s murder, and also mentioned other O-Block affiliates by name, including a man who killed himself in recent months. She claimed she was contacted by “the fed” at 5:57 am in the morning and was told that 5 suspects have been identified, the majority are in custody and one is still being looked for by authorities.
In her 8 minute live video she said the reveal of the suspects being arrested was going to be “breaking news” at some point in the future, so major Chicago news outlets will presumably provide coverage of this story in the coming days. She reacted to the news with joy and tears, saying “my son was killed by some kids” & the suspects’ mothers can still visit them when they are locked up, but she “can’t see [her] son”. In response to other comments on her Live broadcast she said the investigation was now “over with” & said it’s now up to the suspects to “prove theyself innocent“. She also questioned why anybody would be willing to “risk their freedom or even your life” to kill somebody who had done nothing to you.
Duck’s mom also shared a post celebrating the news on her Instagram page.
Duck was shot and killed in August of last year (2020) while shopping in Chicago’s Gold Coast neighbourhood. He sustained multiple gunshot wounds to the torso and was pronounced dead after being rushed to Northwestern Memorial Hospital. FBG Duck was one of the most recognizable figures in the Chicago Drill scene, and his premature death at the age of 26 shocked his friends and family and supporters worldwide. Duck was signed to a major record label in the years prior to his murder, and was only just beginning to enjoy his life as a famous entertainer when it was cut short.
**UPDATE**: Since this article was published, offical documents relating to the charges against the 5 O-Block affiliates have been made public. Read them for yourself Here. The 5 men are facing RICO charges related to gang activity, Duck’s murder and the non-fatal shooting of 2 other individuals.
**UPDATE 2**: 4 of the people on trial for #FBGDuck’s murder entered Not Guilty pleas at their first hearing today (Wednesday 13th). Prosecutors are trying to have all 4 held with no bond, saying they’re “dangers to the community, serious risk of flight” and are possibly facing the federal death penalty.
