Bam Bam Carter met a brutal end.
The Alabama rapper was found dead in a burning car on June 8.
Because of the severity of the fire, Carter's body wasn't identified by the police until earlier this week.

Bam Bam's friend and relatives suspected something had gone wrong when they hadn't heard from him two days after the car fire, which raged at 3 AM in a Birmingham suburb.
"He loved his music,' one of his friends, Ashley Rogers, told AL.com "I’ve been knowing Bam for 12 years and have never known for him to do anything wrong to or towards anybody.Last year, Bam Bam spoke on the Birmingham rap scene.
“As I got older, I had to leave the bullshit to the side and be about the business,” Bam told Radio 101. “God blessed me with a vision. I had to bring the city back. I had to bring the city together instead of beefing with the North Side, instead of beefing with the East Side.”Police have no suspects in his killing.
Paul 'Bam Bam' Carter was 32. RIP.
