We Treated You Like Family!!!

YNW Melly was super tight with the family of one of his alleged murder victims — so much so, he has the guy’s mother’s name tattooed on his neck.
Jana Thompson tells TMZ … her son, Anthony Williams, loved YNW and the other suspect, Cortlen Henry, like brothers. She says, “We opened up our homes & our hearts to them.”
Anthony is one of 2 men YNW and Henry allegedly killed … and Jana is, understandably, shell-shocked. She says the fact that they entered not guilty pleas “feels like another stab in the heart to myself & my family.”
Jana adds, “It’s inconceivable that these very people are the ones responsible for this horrifying murder. I will not stand idle and will fight vehemently for justice!”
YNW has a neck tattoo that reads “Jana” … it’s crystal clear in his mug shot. We’re told it’s a tribute to Mrs. Thompson and shows just how close he was to Anthony and his mother.
Jana says it’s entirely possible she will file a civil suit against Melly and Henry. We’re told she’s hired the firm of Steinger, Iscoe & Greene to explore her options.
As we reported … cops believe Melly and Henry killed Williams and Christopher Thomas Jr., but hatched an elaborate scheme to make it seem like the murders were the result of a drive-by shooting pulled off by unknown assailants.
Cops say after Williams and Thomas were shot, YNW and Henry drove around with the dead bodies “for a period of time” before driving to the hospital.
Melly and Henry have each been charged with two counts of first-degree murder.
