SEATTLE (January 7, 2013)--Seattle hip-hop artist Freddy E has died of what evidently was a self-inflicted gunshot wound, the King County medical examiner’s office said.
Frederick E. Buhl, 22, died Saturday in Renton, Wash., a small urban city about 10 miles south of Seattle.
The artist was also known for his edgy YouTube program "Jerk TV," which had thousands of subscribers and millions of video views.
Medical Examiner's Office investigator Nick Fletcher says suicide is the presumed cause of death, but an autopsy would be performed Monday.
