Arrest Warrant Issued For Dead Rapper Tim Dog –Tha Wire [VIDEO]

When the rapper Tim Dog died earlier this year in February from complications from diabetes, you would think that would’ve been the end of his story.   However, it’s only the beginning and now authorities in Mississippi have issued a warrant for his arrest, on suspicion that he faked his own death.

At the time of his death, Tim Dog, who’s real name is Timothy Blair, was convicted of swindling a number of women out of money to a tune of $2 million.  The drama pretty much unfolded last week, when a woman named Esther Pilgrim claimed that the rapper faked his death to avoid paying her and the other woman the tens of thousands of dollars in court ordered debts.   When his death was reported, he was in the course of paying off the remaining $19,000 he owed Ms. Pilgrim.

As it turns out, Ms.Pilgrim was one of many women the rapper defrauded in an online dating scam, over which he was eventually convicted with grand larceny.  He was reported dead in February at the age of 46, having suffered a seizure do to diabetes complications.  But the only entity announcing Tim Dogs death was being linked back to The Source magazine.  Ironically, its original link has disappeared and since then there’s been no solid information about where he died or how the body was discovered.

On top of that Tim Dogs former producer Cedric “Ced Gee”, doesn’t believe he died either.  He even refused to speak at Blair’s funeral after family members could not produce a death certificate.  Because of that, Ms. Pilgrim conducted her own investigation and sent a friend to Atlanta to search for Blair’s death certificate, and was unsuccessful.  Meanwhile a private investigator working for local news station WREG tracked down an address that was listed as “active”, but confusion still surrounds what that actually means.

Is this a mess or what?  Believe it or not, there’s more!  Listen to Tha Wire below to get more details..
