We’re learning more about the Skyy Mims, who police say murdered a Dalton store clerk. Detroit friend, DJ 8 Mile tells us,
“I was shocked and very unhappy when I found out about her present demise.”
That’s the reaction friends and co-workers of Skyy Mims had as they heard of her recent arrest for murder in Dalton. DJ 8 Mile has worked with the aspiring musician and model from Detroit. He was helping her with promotion, and says Mims was in Atlanta for her birthday last week.
Now, the 21-year-old’s voice is silenced, while she sits behind bars, accused in the up-close, brutal murder of gas station clerk, Dickie Chaudhari. Investigators found the 37-year-old Kanku’s store clerk late Sunday night, in the storage room, surrounded by a pool of blood.
They say Mims stabbed Chaudhari, stole a handful of lottery tickets and cash, then went on the run… leaving Chaudhari for dead. A tip about where she was hiding came in after surveillance and social media pictures of her were released.
Nearly 48 hours later, Mims was arrested at a friend’s home near Atlanta.
“A lot of people are going to miss out on her talent, because she was going to go national. That’s one of the reasons I was promoting her.”
For now, the only people seeing Mims are guards at the Whitfield county jail. She’s being held in isolation while deputies monitor her behavior.
