Young Dolph was tragically shot and killed in Memphis, Tennessee on November 17, 2021, while picking up cookies for his mother at Makeda’s Homemade Butter Cookies. An autopsy revealed the 36-year-old suffered 22 gunshot wounds from bullet entries and exits.
To honor his legacy, November 17 was officially declared Adolph “Young Dolph” Thornton Jr. Day of Service by the state legislatures of Georgia and Tennessee.
“His community efforts and traditions will continue and much more,” Dolph’s sister Carlisa Brown said in November. “His spirit of giving will continue to live in us as it did in him until his passing. We hope that those who truly supported him will take Young Dolph Service Day as a day to give back and help those that need the assistance as he did.”
And this isn’t the first time that Key Glock shared his grief surrounding Dolph’s death.
Back in March, a grieving Glock took to his Twitter to reflect on his year-plus journey without Dolph and his guidance.
“I miss you bruh,” he wrote of his Dum and Dummer collaborator. “Hard to enjoy life when you grieving EVERYDAY.”
As for Dolph’s murder trial, the alleged murder mastermind, Hernandez Govan, has appeared before Judge Jennifer Mitchell for the first time since she replaced Judge Lee Coffee.
Govan, who was allegedly the one who ordered the hit on the late rapper, stood before Judge Mitchell on November 2 for the latest status conference, according to the Daily Memphian. Govan will have to appear in court again on December 14, and the trial is officially set to kick off on March 11, 2024.
Govan has been charged with conspiracy to commit first-degree murder, first-degree murder and criminal attempt of first-degree murder.
Mitchell was appointed the new judge in the case shortly after Judge Lee Coffee was ordered to recuse himself on October 27.
Coffee’s recusal came as a result of a motion filed by Luke Evans, the lawyer for the co-defendant Justin Johnson, who claimed that Coffee couldn’t be impartial “after the judge failed to inform him about an order limiting Johnson’s ability to communicate with people outside the jail other than Evans,” per the AP.
