Reports said that the bodies of Leslie Duncan and Lawrence Duncan of White have been sent to the GBI Crime Lab for autopsies.

TMZ added that MB’s mother, Leslie Joanne Wayne, appeared to be murdered by her latest husband, Lawrence Duncan, before he killed himself.

Metro Boomin, whose real name is Leland Tyler Wayne, has produced hits for Future, Young Thug, Gucci Mane, Drake, Kayne West, and others.
