DETROIT, Mich. (WXYZ) - An aspiring musician and model from Detroit has been arrested for murder in Georgia.
Skyy Mims, 21, is known in the hip hop world as a beautiful model with a gorgeous voice.
Now Mims is adding accused killer to her resume after police in Georgia arrested her for the murder of a gas station clerk this past weekend.
“I was shocked and very unhappy when I found out about her present demise,” said DJ 8 Mile.
DJ 8 Mile works with Mims. She is part of his musical organization International Hip Hop here in Detroit.
“Very, very good artist,” said DJ 8 Mile.
Mims is an artist in a lot of trouble. Authorities say Mims stabbed to death a 37-year-old store clerk known as Dahyabhai “Dickie” Chaudhari late Sunday night, stole lottery tickets and cash, and went on the run. After releasing a surveillance picture of her, law enforcement found Mims on Tuesday hiding at a friend’s home near Atlanta.
“A lot of people are going to miss out on her talent, because she was going to go national. That’s one of the reasons I was promoting her. Because she was a very talented person in the hip hop industry as well as a spokesperson and model,” said DJ 8 Mile.
Friends are confused by the model’s behavior and so are authorities in Georgia who still puzzled by why someone who seemed to have so much going for them, would commit murder.
DJ 8 Mile tells us Mims was in Atlanta for her birthday.
