Black Mafia Family Detroit lieutenant Ricky (Slick) McFarlin was murdered execution style last week at a Westside residence in the Motor City, alongside former NFL player Robert Eddins, less than three months following his release from federal prison. McFarlin, 36, and Eddins, 28, were found shot to death, face down on the floor with multiple entry wounds in the back of their heads, December 21 in the basement of Eddins’ grandmother’s home on the 7900th block of Pierson Street. Sources tell Gangster Report, the slayings are drug related.

“BMF” is the largest and most iconic urban narcotics gang in American history. The highly-structured organization sprouted up in the Southwest section of Detroit in the early 1990s and by the start of the New Millennium had spread across the entire country, maintaining administrative and distribution hubs in Michigan, Missouri, Georgia, Texas, California and New York. Rapper and actor Curtis (50 Cent) Jackson is currently developing the story of BMF into a television series.

Eddins attended Detroit Crockett High School and played in college for Ball State University in Indiana where he earned All-Mid-American Conference honors as a defensive end. He played briefly in the NFL with the Buffalo Bills during the 2011 season.

After Eddins’ grandmother passed away in 2015, Eddins moved into her house, located between Tireman Road and Rouge Park. Responding police last Tuesday evening discovered the home ransacked and the stove turned on to its highest setting in an apparent attempt to set the residence ablaze.

“Slick” McFarlin was convicted in the historic Operation Motor City Mafia bust, a series of federal drug and racketeering indictments spanning 2005 through 2007 that spelled the end of the line for BMF founder and boss Demetrius (Big Meech) Flenory, currently in the midst of serving a 30-year prison sentence, and much of the syndicate’s original core. McFarlin did almost 10 years behind bars and was set free on October 6.
