DJ Paul’s Half Brother Indicted For Six Murders, Drug Dealing

According to the Memphis Commercial Appeal, Craig Petties half-brother to Three 6 Mafia leader DJ Paul has been indicted for at least six murders, and accusations of dealing cocaine.

The Memphis Commercial Appeal has reported that Petties has been responsible for bringing a vast network of drug distribution to the Tennessee city. Despite the Memphis connection, the paper’s reporting says that Petties ran the operation from Queretaro, Mexico.

Federal agents claim Petties aligned himself with a branch of the Sinaloa cartel and through a vast network of associates, imported the cocaine and marijuana into Memphis.

The cocaine and marijuana was sold through a variety of phony businesses, which also helped launder Petties illegal income.

According to a recently unsealed 50-count indictment, Petties allegedly launched his drug business in 1995 and ran the Memphis-based drug ring from Queretaro, Mexico until 2008.

Petties is accused of murdering a member of a rap group known as The Grenade Posse, due to references to drug trafficking on the album.

Several other men were killed because they were suspected of being informants or formidable rivals to Petties drug empire.

Petties, an alleged leader in the Gangster Disciples, was originally indicted in 2002, but went on the run, landing him in the Top 15 Most Wanted American fugitives list.

Federal prosecutors seized over $3 million in assets, over 40 vehicles and over $600,000 in cash.

Petties, who could face the death penalty if convicted, has pleaded not guilty to the charges.
