Nearly a month ago #GavinFord was recording his voice over a @ghi_aub animation video. We were honored to work with such a talent! Our deepest sympathis to his family, friends and colleagues! May his soul rest in peace! pic.twitter.com/6dcmUSrUxv
Ford’s body was discovered after his colleagues alerted the authorities that they were unable to contact him when he failed to show up for the show on Tuesday morning.
Our deepest condolences go to the family of the victim, his colleagues at Radio One, and his loved ones. May his soul rest in peace and may justice be served.
