In an interview with the gossip site TMZ, Cali Swag rappers Jay Are and C Smoove speculated that the murder of their cohort, M-Bone, might have just been a "wrong place at the wrong time situation." TMZ interviewers allege, to the contrary, that the perpetrator have been a "jealous man" who threatened M-Bone on Twitter. They trace the jealous man theory back to an anonymous woman who claimed to be M-Bone's girlfriend. She told the web site that the murderer lived in her apartment complex, and that M-Bone had been driving her car to the studio at the time he was shot. So far, police haven't confirmed the veracity of these leads.
