An aspiring St. Louis rapper wanted in connection with the killings of his grandparents is being held in a psychiatric ward under police guard, according to local media reports.

Davionne McRoberts, 25, walked into the psych ward on Wednesday afternoon covered in blood, prosecutors told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

McRoberts, who goes by the stage name Woozy the Goat, had been the subject of a manhunt after his grandparents were found dead on Tuesday, March 21, inside their trailer home in Troy, Missouri — 55 miles northwest of St. Louis.

The couple was identified as Donald McRoberts, 71, and Kathy Chatman McRoberts, 58.

Local CBS affiliate KMOV Channel 4 reported the two were shot to death.

“We heard, I want to say, six gunshots,” the couple’s neighbor Amber Rinsem told the TV station.

Members of the Troy Police Department were called to the McRoberts’ home to make a “welfare check” because relatives had been unable to reach the couple.

Officers found the two dead and urged residents to avoid the area as they processed the crime scene and used drones to search for a suspect.

The department has been posting regular updates on its Facebook page.

Investigators quickly identified a person of interest in the case.

“The Troy Missouri Police Department is asking for the public’s assistance to locate Davionne McRoberts regarding a homicide investigation,” the department posted on Facebook Wednesday at 5:16 a.m., along with the above picture of McRoberts.

A few hours later, a psychiatric facility in the Troy area notified police that McRoberts had shown up asking to be committed.

Prosecutors plan to charge him with double murder.

Relatives told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch McRoberts had recently been acting strangely.

“He knocked at my door and said, ‘It’s God,'” his great-aunt Pamela McRoberts told the outlet. “He was talking about how he was God and we were all going to die. He said, ‘I’m going to rewrite the Bible,’ and that it would all be revealed at the next family reunion.”

Pamela is the sister of Donald McRoberts, who was killed. She said she warned her brother that something was off with her nephew. “When he left my home, I called my brother. I said, ‘He’s not talking right.'”

She said the elder McRoberts brushed off the warning.

“He wasn’t worried at all,” she recalled.

The newspaper reported relatives believe the grandson may have suffered a “mental break.”

Donald McRoberts was retired from the Army. He and his wife were well-known in the local community and ran the food pantry at Calvary Chapel church. Senior pastor Wes Denham told KMOV the church’s staff is in shock.

“The team that serves over there is just broken over this and it’s a tragedy,” he said.

The couple met while working together at a local hotel and had been friends for about 20 years. They married in 2017.

Pamela McRoberts said she didn’t think anyone in the family tried to get Davionne mental health treatment after she expressed concerns.

The St. Louis rapper has a handful of songs on his “WoozyTheGoat” YouTube page, but less that 200 subscribers. According to local news reports, he also posted songs on the music-sharing website BandLab where he had about 21,000 followers.
