    a whodunit

  • Freak

    One less banger, hopefully the banger that shot him will get shot by someone else.

    • Lucky

      Why do you make such an ignorant comment about him being a “banger”? There are some messed up people out there who shoot people for money or because they won’t give them money. Unless you knew Cesar was a banger personally, save your ignorant comments to yourself.
