A note has been added as follows to this post by Korey Nelson:
“It was not a “sheriffs dog” and it was a neighbors who intentionally harassed the family since the day of buying the property intentionally sicking the rabbed Rottweiler on Todd nelson and other family members all the time when Todd 1st moved to the property they came over to his house and said “ U ruined my dream” but the dog was not what caused his death it was apart of the problem but no the sole reason he went down state to meet up with Debbie with his son korey who lived with him. Debbie promised that Marshall would meet Todd at the airport with money for a lawyer, the next day when everyone woke up Todd and Debbie got into a verbal argument over the meeting for funds for a lawyer that was promised and the sole reason he drove 3 hours away to get help Debbie left her home leaving korey and Todd there stating she was going to Missouri. The money never came, he was lied too and had no funds to make it back home for court in the morning he felt lost abandoned and completely let down by the lies that were told he had no options to return home he died because he had fear of going back to prison over neighbor harassment which includes the dog being part of the family of them but also due to feeling trapped and lied to with no way to return home based off lies of Debbie Mathers. He was vulnerable he was disabled and suffered from mental illness and in a time like that what other options did he feel he had. He dropped his son korey off at Janice’s house korey mother and disappeared with no contact about 10pm he called Janice wanting korey back but Janice left the home and took korey and Bobby to a gas station where they sat in the car. About 10:30 Betty kresin Todd’s mom called Janice telling her that she needed to find Todd he was going to kill himself Janice refused stating he said that his whole life about midnight they got a call that he had committed suicide in Todd jr’s driveway with a shotgun just like Ronnie had done it was the same day as Marshall’s birthday… October 17th but he was not pronounced dead in until he was at the hospital due to Betty keeping him on life support after midnight.”
EMINEM was devastated last night after the uncle who he regarded as his dad committed suicide:
Todd Nelson shot himself in the head as he sat in his car. He had become depressed over a sheriff’s rottweiler which was allegedly terrorising his family.
The 42-year-old helped raise Eminem, whose real father walked out when the rapper was a baby.
It is the second close relative the 32-year-old controversial star – real name Marshall Mathers III – has lost to suicide.
His other uncle, Ronnie, killed himself after being dumped by his girlfriend.
A family friend said: “This news has hit Marshall hard. It will bring back all the memories of losing Ronnie.
“To lose two uncles at such a young age is terribly sad, especially as his father has never been around. The fact they both committed suicide is so tragic.”
Eminem’s granny, Betty Kresin, said the family was “completely devastated”. She added: “I’m so heart-broken, I don’t know if I can handle this as well. He’ll be buried next to my Ronnie.
“Todd had been very upset about a rottweiler owned by a local sheriff who was causing problems for his family.
“The dog scared his girlfriend’s son and scratched his car.
“But when he complained to police, they wouldn’t do anything about it.
“He shot himself in his car in his own backyard. My grandson, Todd junior, found his body. He thought his dad was asleep but he was dead.
“He called me and then Marshall and the rest of the family.”
Betty said her daughter, Debbie, Eminem’s mum, rang the star to tell him they are to bring Todd’s body home to St Joseph, Missouri, following his death in Michigan.
It is the latest family tragedy to strike Eminem.
His ex-wife, Kim, tried to kill herself four years ago. And mum Debbie, 48, who he once called a slut in a song, is recovering from breast cancer.
His tormented family life has inspired many of his songs. He recently fell out with Todd over his uncle’s plans to sell the family home. But when he was younger, he idolised Todd.
In the past, his uncle said Eminem had been “a shy kid with few friends”.
He added: “Marshall grew up believing he was different to everyone else. It was something instilled in him from an early age by Debbie, me and his grandmother.
“Marshall was a happy kid. He was good at entertaining himself and he laughed a lot.
“I remember one time I walked into his room and saw all these posters of black superstars on his walls. Basketball stars, baseball players, rappers. He would spend hours drawing groups such as Public Enemy and NWA. Even as a kid, he idolised Dr Dre.
“At the time I thought he was going through some kind of identity crisis. But I guess he just knew from an early age.
“Everything Marshall has achieved professionally is wonderful. I couldn’t be more proud of him.”
