SAN ANTONIO (KTSA News) – A 34-year-old man found murdered at his La Cantera area apartment this week was a rapper reportedly related to singer and film star Beyoncé Knowles.

Records show this isn’t the first time Skare has been in trouble with the law. She’s linked to a murder in Austin in 2019. Austin police believe Skare and her boyfriend set up a drug deal that ended in a homicide. Skare was charged with aggravated robbery with a deadly weapon and was out on bond when Derouen was shot and killed this week. Anyone with information on her whereabouts is asked to contact the San Antonio Police Department.
