Authorities and Megatronâ€™s family believe the murderers were after Megatronâ€™s dough and a watch he got as a gift from his little girl
The sad revelation came after police announced the arrest of William Williams, 21, and Richard Cromwell, 20, for the murder of the 32-year-old, whose real name was Corey McGriff.
The two men approached McGriff on Osgood Ave. about 2 a.m. March 27 and one of the men fired a single shot in the DJâ€™s body, killing him, police said.
The heartless pair swiped a wad of cash from McGriffâ€™s pocket and the watch off his wrist, police and family said.
â€œIt was an inexpensive watch that his daughter gave him,â€ his mother, Louvenia McGriff, 60, told the Daily News from her Georgia home.
â€œHe loved it because she gave it to him,â€ she said.
The grieving mother said detectives told the family the watch was recovered shortly before the two men were arrested.
â€œThey threw it away probably because they realized it wasnâ€™t valuable,â€ she said.
Her and her husband, Leo McGriff, said itâ€™s painful to know their son was killed for so little.
â€œItâ€™s a hard thing to swallow,â€ the father said. â€œWeâ€™ll be doing a lot of crying.â€
He said the recent arrest comes as little consolation in the death of their son, a former radio personality on Hot 97 and regular on BETâ€™s â€œ106 & Park.â€
â€œThatâ€™s good that they caught them,â€ he said. â€œTheyâ€™re locked up for now. Life in prison would be good for them.â€
Williams â€“ who has prior arrests that include robbery and rape â€“ and Cromwell â€“ whoâ€™s rap sheet includes arrests for reckless endangerment and grand larceny â€“ were both charged with murder, robbery and criminal possession of a weapon.
