Miss Robbie Montgomery from OWN's network reality show, "Welcome to Sweetie Pie's" suffered a great loss a couple of years ago when she lost her grandson, Andre Montgomery.

Andre was suspiciously murdered in cold blood in St. Louis. According to several online reports, Miss Robbie believed that her grandson was set up and murdered. She explained that her grandson was shot at a recording studio where he was working on a rap song

Andre got a call from someone during the recording session and went out to meet the person. He was shot five times.

According to TMZ, Montgomery revealed that there might be a strong lead because prior to the shooting, someone had used a key to enter Andre's hotel room. The person stole some of Andre's things and was captured on surveillance cameras.

Miss Robbie was deeply hurt as Andre frequently featured with his family on her show. His high school graduation was once featured on the show, and his grandma could be seen beaming with pride. The young man was a graduate of McCluer North High School.

His family demanded justice because they knew his killer was still at large. At the time, they also held a candlelight memorial service called JUSTICE FOR DRE, in the hope that someone will come forward with information pertaining to the case.

Montgomery was formerly a singer before she turned into a reality star on Oprah Winfrey's Network. She was a background vocalist on the song "Fool in Love" for Ike and Tina Turner in 1959 and was also part of other musical groups.

She became very ill and was diagnosed with asthma, which led her to quit singing.

Meanwhile, "Welcome to Sweetie Pie's" came to its end after the ninth season, which was premiered on May 1.
