That is the end of the surveillance video. But earlier, cameras recorded the rapper’s arrival for the final moments of his life.
At 3:30 pm on June 18 XXXtentacion arrived at the dealership. As he and a friend walked in XXX had a bag in his left hand. One minute later, surveillance video showed the suspect’s car arriving and two of the suspects walked in the store. They walked past XXXtentacion who looked at them briefly before continuing his conversation with a store employee.
Surveillance video showed the suspects walked to the back of the store and got on their cell phones. Less than 30 minutes later, as XXXTentacion left the store and drove off, he would be shot.
A total of— Michael Boatwright, Trayvon Newsome, Dedrick Williams, and Robert Allen.
Allen appeared in court this week asking to have his bond reduced. His attorney, Jim Lewis, said Allen never left the vehicle to take part in the robbery.
“He was at the wrong place at the wrong time with the wrong people,” Lewis said. “It’s always been my client’s position is he didn’t know this was going to be a robbery, he didn’t participate in it. He didn’t share any of the fruits of it.”
But prosecutors and investigators accuse Allen of playing a role in the murder — from being linked to the rental car to communicating with people outside the store before the murder. Ultimately, a judge denied Allen’s request to reduce his bond.
Each of the suspects in this case is charged with premeditated murder and each of them is locked up in the Broward County Main Jail.
XXXTentacion’s most recent album, “?”, debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart in March.
The musician, born Jahseh Dwayne Onfroy, was 20 year old.
