‘God is love’

Suspected murderer had music, modeling career

In pictures and on websites, she’s a tall, attractive woman who poses for glamorous modeling shots and has released hip-hop CDs.

In Whitfield County, Skyy Raven-Marie Mims, 21, whose last known residence was Detroit, is charged with murdering a convenience store clerk authorities say she robbed late Sunday night.

Mims pictures are on various singing and modeling websites. She lists modeling and singing interests according to what are believed to be her social media websites Facebook and Twitter.

On what is believed to be her personal website, yoskyy.com, is the tagline “God is love.”

“Rapper, songwriter, producer, model, artist, Lover, and motivator; she is a living legend waiting to be discovered,” she is described on the website. “Through her music she paints you portraits, with hopes to share her views on life through a positive point of view. Changing the world one song at a time. A life full of pain, misfortune, and hate she is keeping her head high on life’s journey that God has paved. Yes she is saved, and saved because she refuses to worship money and become another slave.”

A YouTube account sharing the picture of Mims provided by the Whitfield County Sheriff’s Office has her discussing her passions for dance, fashion and music and hanging out with friends in Detroit, while another video dated Feb. 9 shows her holding up cards with notes, including  “I love dance,” “I’m a pisces and will be 21 on March 6,” and other messages including “I am not human, shhh” and “3rd dimension material dimension, 6th dimension one with God.”

Murder and armed robbery arrest warrants were issued for Mims in the death of Dahyabhai Kalidas Chaudmari, 37, originally from India, who was working at the Hi-Tech Fuel gas station at 3385 Airport Road in Whitfield County. Authorities captured Mims in Cartersville late Tuesday after saying they had widened their search for Mims to Atlanta and Michigan.

She was considered “armed and dangerous.”

Capt. Rick Swiney with the Whitfield County Sheriff’s Office said the investigation is continuing here. Anyone with information on the incident is asked to call the sheriff’s office at (706) 278-1233. The Georgia Bureau of Investigation office is open until 5 p.m. weekdays and can be reached at (706) 624-1424.
