Seattle Rapper Freddy E Dead In Apparent Suicide [Photo]

Freddy E dead in apparent suicide

Rapper Freddy E was found dead Saturday in Renton, a city 11 miles southeast of downtown Seattle, in an apparent suicide, according to the King County Medical Examiner’s office.

The 22-year-old, whose real name was Frederick Eugene Buhl, died of a self-inflicted gunshot.

Buhl was the host of JERKTV on YouTube. Some of his videos included “What guys think about during sex” and “Freddy E does the cinnamon challenge.” He also posted spoken word videos.

Buhl’s father, Frederick Douglass Buhl, said in a Facebook post, “Not only our family, but the world has lost a talented, sensitive, brilliant young man who lit up our existence with his.”

Buhl’s Twitter posts Saturday paint a chilling picture of the young rapper’s last hours. He posted several updates saying how his day was ruined and that the day couldn’t get any worse. He also posted that it had been a long time since he had gone through heartbreak.

Most disturbing of all were his last seven tweets in which he talked about holding a gun to his head, told his family he loved them, asked God for forgiveness and, finally, said, “I’m sorry.”

While the reason for Buhl’s death has yet to be confirmed, it appears that he committed suicide because of his ex-girlfriend, who went by the name “Honey Cocaine.” She tweeted, “#Thirstballs #Thirstballs #Thirstballs.” Seconds later, Buhl wrote, “Ain’t nobody thirsty,” although it wasn’t a direct reply to Honey Cocaine’s tweet.

Marquez Taylor, a friend of Buhl’s, wrote on his blog that the young rapper said on Facebook that he was in love with Honey Cocaine and would take a bullet for her.

“I am praying you didn’t do this over a b****,” he wrote.

Nick Fletcher of the medical examiner’s office said an autopsy would be performed Monday.

Sadly, Buhl is the second young rapper to take his own life in recent weeks. As we previously reported, Pro Era’s Capital Steez committed suicide at the age of 19 last month.

We here at The Inquisitr extend our condolences to Frederick Buhl’s family and friends.

    While I don't blame the ex girlfriend for his death. I do blame get for being cold hearted and cruel to him as they parted ways. Some people love very hard does that make them weak-no! It makes them human. When you know this and break with them you need to let them down as easy as possible to avoid situations like this.

    I was in love with his videos and he was such a down to earth, easy going, talented and funny dude…the story seems untrue but sometimes people hurt so bad and hide it with a smile….i know he didn't do it over a female it must of been much more…..but honey cocaine could have stopped him she knew he needed someone to be there and she just kicked him while he was down..not saying its her fault but she was the only one who could of stopped him at the time…don't know how shes going to live with that on her heart. even though suicide is a sin I'm sure god forgave him for all the pain he was going through and hes an angel amoung the rest under gods wings…rest in paradise Freddy…

    How very sad that such a young man with years ahead of him should take his life. It seems obvious that he was in extreme depression, confused, overcome with utter despair and darkness, and was crying out for help. Was his despondency never noticed by his close friends and other ties? I don't know him or claim to have previously listened to his rap, but just now seeing/listening some of his lyrics, they're quite thought troubling, somewhat deep, despairing, desperate and dark. I am so sorry that he could not see God through the darkness that surrounded him. To help other young people, I would encourage, if you are feeling down, don't keep it to yourself, get some help. There is a God and He is often the only one who can bring you out of your season of deep despair. When you've tried out everything, try God. Check out the Bible – read David's story. Check out what he did when going through deep despair: Psalm 3:1-6
    "Lord, how are they increased that trouble me!
    Many are they that rise up against me.
    Many there be which say of my soul,
    There is no help for him in God.
    But Thou, O Lord, art a shield for me;
    My glory, and the lifter up of mine head.
    I cried unto the Lord with my voice,
    And He heard me out of His holy hill.
    I laid me down and slept;
    I awaked; for the Lord sustained me.
    I will not be afraid of ten thousands of people,
    That have set themselves against me round about."
    Ask God to give you that mustard seed type of faith, believe, and He will never let you down.
    One writer states that when we feel overwhelmed by darkness, and you cannot see Him, that's when God is nearest; He is speaking to you with His still soft voice. There is nothing too big for God. Take heart. Hold fast.
