Tragedy struck UFC fighter Devonte Smith’s family this past July when his 23 year old sister, Dariene Smith, was murdered by an unknown person outside of a nightclub in Columbus, Ohio.
No arrest(s) have been made thus far by the authorities and Smith is now taking to Twitter to ask the public for help identifying his sister’s killer. Smith posted the following on Twitter:
PLEASE SHARE !! WE ARE STILL LOOKING FOR THE MEN WHO TOOK MY SISTER AWAY FROM ME ..ANYBODY IN THE CLEVELAND /COLUMBUS AREA IF YOU KNOW THESE TWO PLEASE DM ME OR CONTACT CPD Homicide Det. Karnes at 614-645-4730 pic.twitter.com/BI9WtvTgIf— Devonte Smith (@KOE_KINGKAGEUFC) October 13, 2020
Ed Kapp, who is Smith’s manager, has started a Go Fund Me to help raise funds for Dariene’s young children and over $15,000 has been raised at this time. Smith holds a 2-1-0 record in the UFC (10-2-0 overall), with those wins coming over Julian Erosa and Dong Hyun Ma.
