For those who are from Saint Louis, MO. I know you have heard about this story for the past week. What I find so strange about this is, that:
1. My sister knew him, since he was security guard and bouncer for a club called PLUSH, in downtown Saint Louis.
2. I saw him myself less than a 2 weeks ago at the Bridgeton Applebee's with Chingy and his entourage. i just remember looking at him and thinking damn that's a big guy. I wouldn't want to tango with HIM.
Chingy's former bodyguard recently murdered his girlfriend and their 7-year-old son before killing himself, police said.
According to reports, three bodies were discovered in an apartment in the University City suburb of St. Louis. The victims were later identified as Michael Cannon, 34; Kim Charleston, 34; and Michael Cannon Jr., 7. Cannon aka Big Mike had previously worked security for Chingy.
Cannon and Charleston reportedly weren't married but lived together for approximately 12 years. Authorities wouldn't reveal what the killings' motive may have been. Charleston's two other children live with their father.
Mario Cannon, Michael's brother, said Big Mike phoned him at around 2:04 a.m. the day of the incident. He said it was unusual for his brother to call late, adding that he didn't answer the phone.
