Young Dolph was murdered in cold blood while on his way to pass out Thanksgiving turkeys in his old community. The case has drawn national attention and captivated hip-hop fans. Two persons of interest were recently named in the case.

Devin Burns was named as one of the potential suspects on the Memphis Police Department’s Facebook page. Police had been unable to locate Burns or 26-year-old Joshua Taylor as of earlier this week. One of those two men is now in custody on unrelated charges.

Fox 13 Memphis reports that Devin Burns had two active warrants out for his arrest. Devin was picked up early Tuesday morning for aggravated assault. Burns also faces property theft charges ranging somewhere between $10,000 and $60,000.

Police are still searching for Joshua Taylor as well as another suspect, Shondale Barnett. Barnett was last seen in Brazil, Indiana, and could be anywhere. The opportunity to question Burns could give the police some leads.

Young Dolph was shot and killed in Memphis last November. A makeshift memorial became the site of another shooting. There has been a national controversy over violent rap lyrics stemming from this and other incidents.

Devin Burns is now in police custody. The charges are unrelated, but this will be the first time the cops get a chance to question him. Things could soon start to become clearer in the horrible murder of Young Dolph.
