Here is what we’ve learned Taxtone Trial:

A dispute between the “Tax Season” podcaster and rapper Troy Ave turned into a deadly shooting that night, leaving four people injured. After investigation, police found Taxstone’s DNA on the 9mm semi-automatic’s trigger, handgrip, and magazine.

There is one HUGE problem, Troy’s DNA was also found on the weapon, and taken from the rapper’s van. This could make proving Taxstone as the murderer difficult according to reports.
