Master P and his incarcerated brother C-Murder made headlines last month after their troubled relationship was publicized. It looks like P has put their feud behind him momentarily as he has offered to pay for the funeral of a 12-year-old boy.
According to WLKY News, Ray Etheridge was stabbed and killed by a 21-year-old homeless man earlier this week. The news outlet reports the two got into a physical fight Tuesday afternoon at Cherokee Park.
Etheridge was stabbed and killed by Joseph Cambron, who was an acquaintance of Etheridge. A runner found the boy's body not long after at 4:30 p.m.
"We were able to put some information together, they did know each other from that area for a few weeks," Homicide Unit Lt. Todd Kessinger said.
The day of the murder, Etheridge was at Mid-City Mall with his mother, where the homeless family spent much of their time. After wandering off, the 7th grader was spotted on surveillance video with Cambron at a library just before his death.
Last September, Cambron was indicted on a charge of sexual abuse against a then-6-year-old girl. He was acquitted but did admit to having a violent temper and killing the 12-year-old boy.
While P has covered the funeral, the family is currently raising money for a headstone. Donations are being accepted at a PNC Bank branch under the Ray Allen Etheridge Memorial Fund.
Etheridge's family will be holding a memorial and remembrance ceremony at 4 p.m. on Sunday, October 4, at the park.
