randyparkerdies.jpg(July 10, 2007) After a long battle with depression, Randy Hubbard Parker, son of Simone G. Parker, was found dead in his Atlanta apartment this past weekend. The Fulton County Atlanta Medical Center lists the cause of death as a suicide from a gunshot wound to the head. Simone G. Parker, wife of Rap legend KRS-One cites “severe depression” as the motivating cause for Randy’s sudden death. He was 23.

Randy Parker was born at Elmhurst hospital on July 18 1983 in Queens New York. Randy, a graphic designer and fashion entrepreneur, was seeking employment in the Atlanta area of Georgia. A private memorial service will be held in Florida on July 18, 2007 (Randy’s 24th birthday). KRS is on tour with producer Marley Marl and is currently unavailable for comment. Plans for an August memorial service in New York are underway. KRS-One and Simone Parker sends their sincere appreciation to everyone who has already responded to the tragic news. A MySpace memoriam is being worked on at www.myspace.com/inmemoryofrandyparker where you can leave comments for the family.
