The man suspected of being the co-founder of the Young Slime Life gang (YSL) recently turned himself in.

Reports suggest that Walter Murphy co-founded the street gang with Atlanta rapper Young Thug (Jeffery Williams) and another individual.

This news comes as 18-year-old Quartavius Mender was arrested after authorities say he made threats on social media to kill Fulton County Sheriff Patrick Labat, his wife Jackie and the Atlanta school district’s police chief.

On Monday’s edition of “Closer Look,” investigative journalist George Chidi returned to the program to discuss the latest developments in the case.
