He is also a suspect in the 2017 murder of a sheriff’s deputy in Gifford. In March 2019, Demons pleaded not guilty to the double-murder charges and is currently awaiting trial.
Rumors had been circulating that Melly, a former Bloods gang member had been killed in jail after being ambushed.
He was 19 years old.
YNW Melly was born on May 1, 1999, in Gifford, Florida to native Ohioan parents, Jamie Demons (Father) and Donte Taylor (Mother). Demons was raised by his single mother. She was 14 years old when she became pregnant with him, giving birth to him in the ninth grade. Later moving to a poorer part of Gifford, his mother struggled to pay for housing and necessaries. Demons joined the Bloods gang at a young age, later posting his songs on SoundCloud when he was 15. In late 2015, Demons was arrested for shooting at a group of students near Vero Beach High School and subsequently convicted of aggravated battery, discharging a firearm in public, and two counts of aggravated assault, for which he served several months in prison.

What Happened to YNW Melly Hoax

This happened after rapper Juice Wrld, 21, died Monday at the Chicago airport after a cardiac arrest.
But YNW Melly’s mother, Jamie Demons-King, posted a video on Instagram to overturn rumors about her son’s murder.
On December 9 and 10, publications appeared on several unreliable websites, including two that prompted users to “caress their friends,” and falsely claimed that the 20-year-old had been stabbed in jail. On December 9, the Channel 45 News website published a brief publication entitled “YNW Melly Stands to Death,” along with a photo of Demons and the following text:
“The authorities said that everything happened in a riot in the prison between gangs. So the victim was found dead with a knife in the stomach. YNW Melly stabbed!”
Channel 45 News invites users to “play a joke and fool their friends” by generating a fake news publication that looks vaguely authentic from a headline and text entered by the user, as shown below:
Another user has published a second fake article with Prank News Generator NSFNews. This post had the headline “YNW Melly stabbed in jail.”
Based on these demonstrably fabricated stories, rumors of Demons’ demise spread quickly on social media and other websites, including DeadDeath and Market News, which shared what they described as “unconfirmed” reports that the rapper had been killed.
