Singer Salomé, better known as Betty Idol of VH1’s “Cartel Crew,” is demanding justice after her 17-year-old baby sister was shot in the head and killed in Miami on Monday (May 18).
Giselle Rengifo was hanging out with friends at an Airbnb in Miami when the shooting occurred around 8:30 p.m.
The shooter, 17-year-old Michael McGowan, claims the shooting was accidental. He was arrested and charged with manslaughter.
The family does not believe the shooting was accidental and they are demanding that he be charged with murder.
In a post on her Instagram page, Betty Idol detailed the information she received about her sister’s death and she is asking the public to spread the story as she demands justice!
Im living a nightmare ever since a young man sent me a DM telling me to please check on my sister GISELLE Monday night, MAY 18th. He told me she was at an air bnb hanging out with her friends & this guy she was seeing. He was on FaceTime with her until she quickly passed the phone to her friend and then a min later he heard a gun shot.
The girl that was holding the phone looked to the ground & everyone started screaming. Then I called every #police station, every hospital until I was able to finally speak to a #homicide detective in South MIAMI who told me that my sister was taken from me & my family by a person she called a “friend”.
I had to call my mom and give her the detectives number so he could tell her because I couldn’t breathe, I couldn’t tell my mom that my little sister was taken from us. This boy shot my sister in the head at close range and is only getting charged with “MANSLAUGHTER”.
This is not manslaughter this is CAPITAL MURDER! Then they’re trying to call it an ACCIDENT! He told us that “the 4 kids that were there” are saying it was an accident”. My mom went to the police station and she was screaming looking for my sister. She saw the kids and she saw the ONE Friend my mom recognized and the girl told her it was an accident and that she’s sorry.
We’ve been calling the police station trying to find my sisters body since Monday night. They didn’t tell us till yesterday. My aunt went to look at my sisters body because we’re not in a good head space & I don’t think it’s a good idea to see her with a bullet in her head and have that memory haunting us for the rest of our lives so my aunt and 2 cousins went.
They told us that my sisters face was swollen like a ballon. She has a black eye & it looks like she was shot from the back of her head. THE POLICE AREN’T TELLING US ANYTHING.
This happened on Monday and they just made an article YESTERDAY. Im getting texts yesterday telling me that the killer is getting bail & he’s sister was bragging on live disrespecting my lil sister.
