Ace NH (legal name: Billy Bennett Adams III) was arrested this past weekend for allegedly killing two other artists he worked on music with. Authorities report that Ace NH killed the two men after their recording session on Thursday in Lutz, Florida which is located in the Tampa metro region and remained on the run for the two days thereafter.
Upon being arrested, Ace NH was charged with two counts of premeditated first-degree murder with a firearm and one count of armed burglary of a structure.
The motive behind the murders remains unknown however police believe the killings are possibly “gang-related.” Sheriff Chad Chronister said in a statement, “This was a violent execution this suspect performed, and although the attack was clearly targeted, we will not allow gang-related disputes to disrupt the comfort and safety of innocent residents in any of our communities. Our deputies responded to the crime scene in less than five minutes the night of the murders, and due to their diligent work around the clock to solve this case, detectives arrested the suspect responsible in less than 48 hours….It is clear that this suspect had no regard for human life, and now he will face the consequences for his actions.”
Ace NH is being held without bond.
