*Twista‘s bodyguard was found dead — shot to death and burned in a South Side Chicago apartment Friday.

The bodyguard was identified as Davy Easterling on Sunday.

Easterling, who Twista, in a Tweet said was  “a close friend of mine,” had been missing for three days on Friday.

“A close friend of mine has been missing for the past 48hrs, his name is 6’9 he does security work for…” he tweeted.

He posted more pics on his Twitter of his friend:

“Here sum better pics of my homie 6’9, his real name is Davy Easterling. If y’all have any info on…”

Easterling was found dead in an apartment around 6 a.m. Friday.

Twista later tweeted, “#RIP Davy Easterling aka 6’9 I have lost too many good friends to these streets.”

Easterling — who was licensed to carry a firearm as a security guard — is being investigated as a homicide victim.

He was discovered after firefighters were called to the building.

The Fire Department’s Office of Fire Investigations confirmed the fire was started by someone.

Bomb and arson investigators are continuing the investigation.
