Rapper J $tash allegedly murdered his girlfriend in front of her three kids before turning the gun towards him and killed himself.

J $tash, real name was Justin Joseph, died in Temple City, California, on Saturday. He was 28.

According to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, cops received a report of domestic violence around 7:14 a.m. on New Year’s Day.

Authorities found the bodies of Jeanette Gallegos, 27 and J $tash at the scene.

The rapper had an argument with Gallegos and he led her into the master bedroom, where the crime took place.

“The female victim sustained multiple gunshot wounds while the male victim sustained an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound,” deputies noted.

“Right now, the evidence at the scene and the preliminary information we have from the children in the home is that it’s a murder suicide,” Lt. Derrick Alfred told KTLA on January 1.

“The three children ranged from ages 5-11. Authorities removed the children from the home and sent them to be with relatives.

One of the kids called their grandmother, who told them to call 911. It is unknown if the call happened before or after Gallegos was killed.

J $tash has been dating the mom for about a year before their deaths.

Gallegos’ family started a GoFundMe page to raise money for her funeral and expressed their grief.

Her sister Erika Chavez, wrote, “With a heavy heart my sister passed away January 1, 2022. A tragic and unexpected loss for my family and nephews God has gained another angel. My sister leaves was full of life, she was the sweetest most caring person, always there for everyone who needed her. Her favorite quote ‘live today because tomorrow is not promised.'”

“My sister leaves behind three beautiful boys who will have to continue living life with what’s left, the memories created with their mommy,” the post finished.

The police investigation is still ongoing.
