‘Trust we are working on this case’ MPD Chief remains tight-lipped on Young Dolph investigation

MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Six days after the murder of Young Dolph, the public continues to have many unanswered questions.

FOX13 pressed Memphis Police Chief CJ Davis for an update on the investigation when she attended an unrelated news conference Tuesday. But for the second time in five days, Chief Davis did not seem to want to talk about it.

Here’s everything we know about the death of Young Dolph

“No, this is not the forum for that. No updates right now,” Davis said.

It has been nearly a week since the death of Memphis rapper Young Dolph, and Chief CJ Davis remains tight-lipped about the investigation.

”I’m going to reiterate what we always say: if anyone out there knows anything, call police and tell them what you know,” Shelby County District Attorney Amy Weirich said.

When news broke that Young Dolph had been gunned down at Makeda’s Homemade Butter Cookies last week, rumors began circulating about who may be involved and other violent crimes that may be connected. The chief did have something to say about that.

”The community needs to understand social media is fueling with a number of rumors and innuendos. Not just about this investigation, but various investigations. Trust we are working on this case,” said Davis.

It’s advice Darius Johnson, a Young Dolph fan, said he agrees with.

”Don’t be a keyboard killer, type on Twitter. Just sit back and let the police do their job,” said Johnson.

”We have sent messages to the community that basically says if we felt like the community was at risk, we would have taken additional action,” Davis said.

Over the weekend, police found the car they believe was involved in Young Dolph’s murder.
