An autopsy of the death of rapper Black The Ripper has been ordered.

The musician, whose real name is Dean West, was found dead at the age of 32 in a vacation home in the St John’s region of the Caribbean island, Monday, April 6.

Local police found Black The Ripper insensitive and declared him dead at the scene.

Now the Montserrat royal police confirm that a coroner ordered an autopsy after being unable to determine the cause of his death.

Police Commissioner Steve Foster said, “At the moment, the circumstances of his death are unknown. As a result, the coroner (chief magistrate) ordered a post-mortem examination of the deceased’s body to determine the cause of death.

“However, I am unable to say and / or give a date by the time the autopsy exam is complete. “

Foster added that family members have been informed of his death.

Local police were said to have searched the scene but had found nothing concerning his death at the time.

Black The Ripper has been in Montserrat since February 25 and is believed to have family on the island.

Tributes have since poured in for the musician, Skepta sharing a picture of them with a teary emoji in his eyes and the caption: “God bless your soul. “

Rapper Chip was one of the first to express condolences over the death of Black The Ripper and tweeted, “RIP my brother … I know people would like to go out for him. Kmt. F **** d up man. RIP Black The Ripper [sic]. “

Rapper Sneakbo wrote: “SMH RIP Black The Ripper”, while Jammer from Boy Better Know revealed that he had seen him recently and said: “The irony !!! Me @therealghetts & @lethalbizzle wearing Stormin at rest !! And we just visited the tomb of Esco !!! #RipBrother.
