We don’t mean to be cynical, but we’ve never heard of this happening to a classical harpsichordist.
The young man who was killed was identified by relatives as 21-year-old Treyvon Woods, who went by Tre Tre. An acquaintance of his was in the hospital undergoing surgery.
Ah, Treyvon. Given that there is no standard orthography among the functionally illiterate, sound it out and you’ll see it’s a name which lives (and dies) in infamy.
Sanatana Daniels, a cousin of Woods, said: “We ain’t taking it well but we’re keeping our head high. That’s all it is.”
Relatives say Woods was a rapper who was always looking out for others.
“He gave back to the ‘hood, bought the ‘hood ice cream. He loved the kids. Positive, outgoing person,” Daniels said.
Seems like there was an altercation in the back of the complex,” Ken Fregia, an HPD homicide detective, said. “Right now we don’t have any suspects.”
If our harpsichordist example was too insensitive, or suggests a racial angle to you, well, we can’t recall this happening to a Dixieland trumpeter, either. But the urban morgues of America are rich in aspiring rappers turned expiring rappers.
Could it be something thematic in the music?
