Jesus Take The Wheel: Beauty Supply Owner Killed Over Six Bags Of Hair

- By Bossip Staff

This is crazy:

The owner of Sunrise Beauty Supply was shot and killed during an apparent robbery late Tuesday morning.

A witness who saw the aftermath from inside a nearby shoe store told police the suspect ran out of Sunrise carrying six bags of hair.

That witness told FOX 2 the suspect, a teenage or twenty something black male in sweat pants, a coat and do-rag, jumped in a four-door, silver Focus being driven by a black female. They both then sped away.

The second photo above is a sketch of the possible suspect being sought by police. He has a tattoo or birthmark over both eyes and some blotches around his cheek area.

Regular customers are shocked and saddened.

“That’s so sad that a man’s life could be taken over six bags of hair,” said Susan Gewarges.

“Suddenly that person’s not there anymore, and you figure all they were really doing was trying to make a living for themselves like the rest of us,” George Johnson said.

Dearborn Police are investigating and asking that anyone with information to please come forward.

We spoke to the owner’s wife, who is obviously grief stricken. She told us her faith is the only way that she’s going to get through this senseless tragedy.

  • G.M.

    hair weave is worth a lot and women stay spendin money on that sh1t…i wonder how much would 6 bags of it be worth on the streets…i saw chris rock “Good Hair” lol if those women payin 1 to 3 stacks for a weave u could make atleast $1500 a pop on the streets…sell it to some beauty salons or women runnin salons out they apartments…damn shame weaves becoming the new crack lol XD

    • ThickLikeCornbread

      Just from the location & looks of the store & the NAME of the store, this is NOT where u buy the “good” weave from. I bet each bag of hair costs $20.99, not thousands like the Indian hair

      And, whoever wears this CURSED WEAVE, I hope the weave tangles up in 3days & itch their scalp like fleas!
      (cheap weave do it anyway)

      How could those ppl even sleep at nite knowing they killed some1 over WEAVE??!!!!

  • Sha

    SMH that’s a damn shame.

  • you're lame

    @ GM most beauty supply stores don’t carry the expensive hair you’re talking about. The highest hair they have is about 100 so if anything they can make about 600, and that’s only if someone is willing to pay full price which i doubt. The expensive hair you can only order online.

    • G.M.

      ooooh, okay…didn’t know that…and here i was puttin my ski mask on and ready to go out and start rippin weave out b1tches head for profit…u have saved many scalps w/ur post today lol XD

  • MsBountyful

    right after you stupid azz.

  • ????

    People getting crazy behind weave these days. The lady at the beauty supply where I buy my hair got punched a few weeks ago behind some weave. The girl got mad because her card didn’t work and wanted the owner to call the number on the back. The sad part was the girl had her baby with her.

  • Ms Niagara

    It was 80 bags of hair, it’s still senseless!


    OMG.. I can just imagine the search. I need all black females with fresh micro braids within a 20 mile radius detained.
