Graffiti Vandal Tags Meek Mill's Grandma; 3 More Charged in SW Philly; Toddler Dead in Bucks

Philadelphia Police are investigating after a man was caught on camera spray painting graffiti in the Graduate Hospital neighborhood on Monday night, 12/17. Philadelphia rapper Meek Mill posted the video of the vandal writing the word "acorn" on the outside wall off his grandmother's home. In a tweet, Mill said, "A white man sprayed a racial remarks on my Grandmom's house last night in south philly referencing white Privileged." [sic] It is unclear what the message exactly means. It does not appear that Mill's family was targeted directly. The same graffiti appeared on other buildings in the neighborhood.

Three more people have been charged in the execution style murders of four people in the basement of a Southwest Philadelphia home. 30-year-old Robert Long, 36-year-old Nasir Moss-Robertson, and 34-year-old Keith Garner are charged with murder, robbery and other related offenses. 32-year-old Jahill Porter was already charged in the case. It happened on November 19th on the 5100 block of Malcolm Street. The victims were 17-year-old Yaleah Hall, 20-year-old Tiyaniah Rakele Hopkins, 28-year-old Akeen Mattox, and 31-year-old William Taylor. The two brothers found a drug stash while renovating a home and decided to sell it. They were killed, along with the two sisters, in a drug deal gone bad when the 4 suspects decided to steal the stash instead of buy it.

Authorities in Bucks County are investigating after a toddler was found dead in an apartment Tuesday evening. Police responded around 5 p.m. to the Commons at Fallsington located on Makefield Road in Falls Township. They arrived to find the 22-month-old boy dead. Officials are considering the death suspicious at this time. The Bucks County District Attorney's Office and the Falls Township Police Department are investigating.

UPDATE: Police say that the boy showed signs of trauma, but that is it too early in the investigation to make a determination of homicide. Bucks County District Attorney Matt Weintraub said, "His twin brother died at 5-months-old, so about 17 months ago, and that was ruled a SIDS death (sudden infant death syndrome), if you will - a natural unexplained death." There were reportedly 18 people living in the two bedroom apartment.

UPDATE: The death of the boy has now been ruled a homicide. The coroner says he died from blunt force trauma to the head.
