Here’s an update on XXXTentacion’s case.
The four men connected to XXXTentacion’s 2018 murder, Robert Allen, Michael Boatwright, Dedrick Williams, and Trayvon Newsome, have upcoming court dates in November. Reported on XXL, Robert and Michael have a zoom court date set for November 6 and the other two, a virtual hearing on the 13th. The court appearances are for their attorneys and the judge to discuss and decide if they’re ready to take the case to trial. It’s been a two-year wait.
On June 18, 2018, in Deerfield Park, Florida, X, who was 20 at the time, was shopping for a motorcycle before getting gunned down. Reports say the suspects followed X after he withdrew money from the bank and then he was shot and killed in his car.
Derrick was taken into custody two days after the incident, Micheal was arrested on July 5, Robert on July 25, and Trayvon on August 7. They have all been charged with first-degree murder. They’re at the Broward County Sheriff’s Office in Fort Lauderdale, Fla.
Here are their faces:
This was XXXTentacion’s last words, this happened a few moments before he was killed. “Worse things comes to worse, I f***** die or a tragic death or some sh**, and I’m not able to see out my dreams, I at least Wanna know that the kids perceived my message and were able to make something of themselves.” Take a look:
Seven months after the horrible tragedy, X’s girlfriend, Jenesis, delivered their son, Gekyume Onfroy, both their first child. The name is symbolic because X created it before he passed away. His family reportedly defined it as meaning “a different state” or “next universe of thought.”
