XXXTentacion’s murder suspect, Dedrick Williams was reported to have been sexually assaulted in a Florida jail.
A new report, according to Broward County Sheriff’s Office, says that story is not true.
Dedrick Williams, who is currently sitting in the Broward County Jail, was not raped.
Law enforcement officials at Broward County Sheriff’s Office told TMZ the story which claimed Williams had been showering recently and was ambushed “with an attempted rape” is flat-out false.
The story — citing someone who works in the Dade County Jail system — had gone on to claim that people affiliated with Kodak Black may have been involved.
The Broward County Sheriff’s Office’s Public Information Officer, Veda Coleman-Wright, says that story is “unfounded” and that the entire alleged incident did not happen.
What is accurate is that police have ID’d a person of interest in XXX’s murder case — 22-year-old Robert Allen, who was seen at the motorcycle shop where X was gunned down.
Williams remains as the only murder suspect under arrest for now — but, cops are searching for at least 2 others.
XXXTentacion, whose real name is Jahseh Dwayne Onfroy, was killed during an armed robbery in Miami earlier this month.
A private funeral for the rapper held on Thursday afternoon, and was attended by several notable guests including musician Erykah Badu.
XXXTentacion frequently faced accusations of crime and abuse, repeatedly being arrested for robberies and battery.
He spent a period of his life in a juvenile detention centre over a gun possession charge, where he met the rapper Ski Mask the Slump God, who he’d later go on to collaborate with on multiple projects.
Authorities have arrested 22-year-old Dedrick Devonshay Williams and charged him with first degree murder in the rapper’s death.
Also identified as a person of interest was 22-year-old Robert Allen, who was seen in surveillance footage at a store XXXTentacion had visited moments before him. Mr Allen has not yet been deemed a suspect, however.
XXXTentacion’s mother shared a photo of his mausoleum gravesite on Instagram with the caption “My guardian angel 👼🏾.”
The gravesite boasts a mauseoleum complete with Greek columns, inscribed with “XXXTentacion” in large letters, with his given name below, decorated with black and silver flowers.
