Police Looking to Question Fat Joe In Double Homicide

Posted By on May 30, 2007

Miami authorities are reportedly seeking to question Fat Joe who they believe witnessed the murder of two people in South Beach early Monday morning (May 28).

According to the Miami Herald, police claim that Fat Joe was in a rented black Cadillac Escalade with Lessli Paz and Joey Navarro which was parked outside of David's Cafe II just before 6 a.m.

A fight would then break out between the passengers in the vehicle and another man identified as Jermaine ''Wufgang'' Chamberline outside the Cuban eatery.

According to an arrest report released Tuesday, a fist fight took place before the actual shots were fired. "As the two groups began punching and kicking each other, [Chamberline] reached into his right-front pocket and pulled out a 9mm handgun."

Three slugs would hit Navarro, 26, of Homestead, Florida who later died at the hospital. Paz, 25, of New York, died on the sidewalk of one gunshot wound.

When police arrived, they detained four men who claimed at first they were friends of the dead men but later refused to cooperate.

Chamberline would be arrested minutes later and would eventually confess to shooting Paz and Navarro. He would be charged with two counts of second-degree murder and one of carrying a concealed weapon by a convicted felon.

Police are still unclear if Fat Joe (born Jose Cartagena) was directly involved in the fight and how he slipped away from the scene. They claim they only want to talk to him as a possible witness.

Aimee Morris, a spokeswoman for Fat Joe, said she had not talked to the rapper and could not immediately comment. His whereabouts were not known Tuesday.
