Who he leaves behind
Walker leaves behind several children. In a 2013 interview with MTV, he talked about his life with 11 children and their 10 mothers. At one point, a TV show centered around the rapper, his children and their mothers called All My Babies' Mamas was planned, but it was apparently canceled before airing, according to MTV. A pilot of the show did make its way to the internet, sparking much discussion about Walker's unusual family structure.
Authorities are continuing to investigate the cause of the accident.
