Who is Dante Brooks? Dante Brooks Bio/Wiki

Dante Brooks, Dancehall deejay Mavado’s teenage son, was found guilty in the Home Circuit Court today of murder and now faces the possibility of a life sentence in jail.

In 2013, Mavado collaborated on the track “Cheat on Me” with Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta star Spice.

According to Loop Jamaica, on January 27, Brooks, and another man, Andre Hinds, were found guilty in Kingston of murder, illegal possession of a firearm, and arson.

The pair were accused, along with other men, of entering the home of Thomas and trying to cut off the head of the man. The group doused Thomas’s body in gasoline when their machete was too dull and set him on fire, prosecutors said. Thomas’s father identified the duo, the Loop Jamaica report says.


He is 18 years old.

Arrested And Charged

The two were arrested and charged in connection with the grisly killing of Lorenzo Thomas on June 5, 2018, in the Cassava Piece community of St Andrew.

As opposed to a judge and jury, the defense team for Brooks chose to have a trial by a judge alone. The trial of both men was presided over by Justice Leighton Pusey.

With proof that Brooks and Hinds were among five men who entered the house and shot Thomas before pushing his father into another room, prosecutors led them. The killers of Thomas tried to sever his head but aborted the plan because the machete was too stubborn.

Before torching them, they then doused the house and body with gasoline. Prosecutors relied on Thomas’s father’s eyewitness testimony, which indicated that he knew the killers of his son from the community.
