Police noted at the time that Lampkins’ black and white designer backpack, cell phone and wallet were all missing when his body was found by officers in a Dallas apartment.

According to the arrest warrant, a detective had obtained Instagram data from Franklin and found that he had suggested he rob Lampkin to Garcia because “he carries a lot of money” and is “friendly” and has “no weapon”.
