Seattle Hip Hop Artist Freddy E Dead In Apparent Suicide

Hip hop artist and Internet personality Frederick Eugene Buhl died Saturday in Renton, apparently of a self-inflicted gunshot, according to the King County Medical Examiner’s office.

On a Facebook post, Buhl’s father, Frederick Douglass Buhl, said his son was 22 years old.

The younger Buhl went by the name Freddy E. He was best known for his Internet program Jerk TV, which featured humorous and profane segments, often with a moral or cautionary message.

“Not only our family, but the world has lost a talented, sensitive, brilliant young man who lit up our existence with his,” Buhl’s father said in his post.

Nick Fletcher, of the medical examiner’s office, said an autopsy will be performed Monday.

The last messages on Freddy E’s Twitter account express despair and heartbreak. “If there’s a God then He’s calling me back home …” He told his parents he loved them. The final message: “I’m sorry.”
