Exclusive Details

update_graphic_red_bar12:01 PM PT --  Police investigating Kayo's death tell TMZ all evidence now points to suicide -- a self-inflicted gunshot wound. Henry County P.D. says the body of Kayo -- aka Caodes Scott -- was discovered last night in the Georgia subdivision where he lived. The autopsy will be conducted later today.
Foul play is NOT suspected in the death of Kayo Redd -- younger brother of rapper Waka Flocka Flame -- law enforcement sources tell TMZ.

Redd died over the weekend ... and so far the cause of death has not been determined ... but our sources tell us it does not appear to be a homicide.  There are unconfirmed reports Redd may have taken his own life.

Waka's mother and hip-hop manager Debra Antney confirmed the death on Twitter ... with the message, "I just lost another son." Antney also had a son who died in a car accident when Waka was 13 years old.

Waka tweeted a message yesterday, saying "Ya Big Brother love you Kayo."

Sources tell TMZ an autopsy will be performed today or tomorrow.

I think when a person from a lower income family makes it big the siblings take it hard. It's like, they are only known for being the sibling and are maybe ashamed to take a "regular" job. They suddenly don't fit anywhere. Sorry to hear of a young person taking their own life. Always sobering.

I'm sorry but why comment If all you 're going to do is be disrespectful ? Are you so heartless that you don't see nothing wrong w/ criticizing the deceased .? Put yourself in this situation would you want people criticizing you when you're gone ? Better yet of this was your sibling how would you feel about people showing nothing but disrespect. GROW UP PEOPLE ! R.I.P Kayo

The "cause of death has not yet been determined".....this may be a wild guess, but it sounds to me like it would be the self-inflicted gunshot wound.

How can people be so cruel? This woman lost her son and a man lost his brother. Just because you are a rapper doesn't mean you deserve to die. You never know why someone wants to kill themselves. I just pray God sends Ms. Atney strength as I can only imagine how this must hurt. You low life ****faces need to go get a life and stop masturbating to sorrow and mourning.

Society confirms deaths on Twitter now? More than the obviously sad and untimely death of this man, the larger sadness is that we are confirming loss of human life on social media. Sometimes less is more...
