The 1st man arrested for involvement in XXXTentacion (RIP)’s Murder gave the police information leading to the indictment of the other 3 suspects, but doesn’t want to be known as a “snitch” for doing so.
**UPDATED 7/26/2018** The 3rd named suspect, Robert Allen, was apprehended today on Georgia after almost a month on the run. He is due to be extradited to Florida to face murder and robbery charges.
The 22-year-old man, full name Dedrick Willams, has said he doesn’t want to be known as a snitch despite helping put together the events around X’s Murder; including saying who was there, that he drove the getaway car and even saying he did not know of the plan to rob X. Rounds matched to the alleged murder weapon were also found in his car, and he has said the event left him traumatized and “unable to sleep”.
New legal documents exposed his co-operation and showed that he initially lied about being at RIVA Motorsports the day X was killed. When confronted with CCTV images from the building on the day however, he revealed he was the driver of the SUV that took the shooters (officially identified by police as Trayvon Newsome, 22, and Michael Boatwright, 22) to the scene. He added that he did not know about the plan to rob XXXTentacion, and did not want to be labelled a “snitch” in prison for co-operating with the investigation.
At time of interview Police had already found bullets matching the shell-casings from the scene in Williams’ car, along with $800 in clothing with a receipt which shows the purchase was after X’s murder. Police also found a live .22 caliber round at his home that they determined to have been fired from the murder weapon. His girlfriend also revealed that he had confided in her that the 2 other suspects were Boatwright and Newsome.
3 hours after X’s murder, a 2017 Blue Dodge Journey was involved in a hit and run and several black men were said to have fled from the car. The driver was later identified as Trayvon Newsome and the car appeared identical to the one involved in the robbery.
All 4 men (Dedrick Williams, Michael Boatwright, Trayvon Newsome and Robert Allen) have been indicted for X, real name Jahseh Dwayne Ricardo Onfroy’s murder. Newsome and Allen are at this point still on the run.
