Authorities in Florida have arrested a 25-year-old Virginia man, alleging he killed his longtime friend and drove around for a week with the body in his trunk.
Trotter's friend, Robert Coltrain, 25, has since been arrested and charged with second-degree murder and illegal transport of human remains, according to Miami Herald.
Troopers with the Florida Highway Patrol who responded to the scene observed Coltrain removing a Glock gun case from the vehicle after the accident; after noticing flies and the smell of human remains near his auto, they popped the trunk and found Trotter's badly decomposed body wrapped in fabric, according to an arrest report obtained by the outlet.
Troopers said the body was wrapped in a piece of fabric and in an advanced stage of decomposition.
Coltrain gave them conflicting explanations, including that he'd dropped Trotter off in Washington and that another friend picked him up, Trotter's dad said. Robert Coltrain, left, was charged in Miami-Dade County in the death of Brian Trotter, who went missing from Virginia earlier this month.
The reports, all citing Coltrain's arrest report, indicate that both men were aspiring musicians who had been close friends for more than a decade.
According to police, Trotter, a budding rapper known as Kent Won't Stop, died from multiple gunshot wounds.

Footballing legends Ronaldo and Messi will now, all being well, meet in the reverse Group G fixture in Barcelona on December 8. The 35-year-old Ronaldo, the top scorer in the history of the competition with 130 goals, was furious at missing the game.
The family filed a missing-persons report when their son didn't return home.
Trotter's relatives said they last saw him on October 17, when he was picked up at his home in Triangle, Virginia, by Coltrain.
The report said the troopers continued to smell the odor coming from the auto so they opened the trunk and found a dead body. They also peppered Coltrain with phone calls. The report states that Coltrain shot Trotter several times, resulting in his death.
Detectives are still trying to determine a motive for the murder.
To troopers, Coltrain made a "spontaneous statement" that the body "was a male", the report said.
"No one can understand what happened", he said. A native of San Diego, he graduated from the University of Southern California and joined the Herald in 2002 as a sports reporter.
