The prolific 29-year-old rocker was found dead early Wednesday in his Memphis home. His former label, Goner Records, was the first to confirm the news. "It is with great sadness that we report the passing of our good friend Jay Reatard. Jay died in his sleep last night," Goner announced Wednesday afternoon.

But Reatard had enemies. He feuded with New Jersey punk band Liquor Store just days before his death. And on Thursday a report hit the web that Reatard's death was being investigated as a homicide.
