The world has completely gone bonkers. Philadelphia’s police department revealed that they believe they have the man who fatally stabbed a member of Nicki Minaj’s tour crew to death and seriously wounded another.

31-year-old Pierce Boykin was charged with murder on Tuesday for the death of 29-year-old De’Von Pickett, who was killed during a bar fight on February 18th in Philadelphia’s East Germantown neighborhood.

One of Pickett’s fellow roadies was seriously injured so Boykin was additionally charged with attempted murder.

If the authorities know a motive behind the whole tragic ordeal, they haven’t yet announced it.

At the time, international hip hop superstar Nicki Minaj posted a picture of the victims, with the caption: “Two members of my team were stabbed last night in Philly. One was killed. They had only been there for two days rehearsing for the tour.”

Pickett was a well-known and hard working roadie. He worked for the likes of Britney Spears, Kanye West and Rihanna. The Barbados superstar also shared her thoughts at the time of the tragedy: “Can’t believe this is true! One of the nicest, coolest, funniest people I’ve ever met and toured with! We had so much fun together!!! Sad to lose a beautiful spirit like yours #RIPDayDay.”
