The Internet Investigates Dolph’s Case

We also recently reported on internet detectives piecing together theories on who killed Young Dolph.

A YouTube video by “Identikal” cites several suspicious pieces of evidence that could indicate that whoever shot Dolph knew when and where he would be at the time of the attack. They cite the fact that the glass remnants that were presumably broken from gunshots were found outside the shop instead of inside where the shooting happened and that one of the eye-witnesses was related to the owners of Makeda’s Cookies.
