TheWire Little Kevin

Little Kevin is an obese drug dealer played by Tyrell Baker. death 2006


Little Kevin is a teenage drug dealer working for Bodie Broadus in season four. Kevin's nickname is a joke on his weight; he is in fact the most obese drug dealer in their crew. He is first mentioned in Episode One of Season One by Stringer Bell. Stringer is telling Avon Barksdale that the cop "who tried to pin Gerard on Little Kevin" (referring to Detective Jimmy McNulty) was at D'Angelo Barksdale's trial (it is unlikely that they are the same ). Little Kevin first appears in Season Four and the main story line is how he told Randy Wagstaff to send a rival drug dealer Lex "up the way" where Marlo Stanfield's crew then murder Lex. After, Randy tells Detective Thomas "Herc" Hauk about the incident. Detectives Herc and Kenneth Dozerman brought everyone in Bodie's crew under 5'6" and 150 lbs, not realizing the nickname was ironic. When Kevin's identity is confirmed, he is sent to central booking after refusing to cooperate in Herc's investigation. Stanfield suspects that Kevin is working with the police. When questioning him, Marlo finds out that he involved Randy instead of acting on his own. Kevin gets stuffed in a trunk and later found murdered by Stanfield's crew. Kevin's murder contributes to Bodie deciding to give up Stanfield's crew to police officer Jimmy McNulty; Bodie is unaware that Little Kevin betrayed Lex, thinking Marlo killed him just because he could.
