A third individual has been arrested in connection with the murder of rapper XXXTentacion. However, one suspect is still on the run. The arrest was made on Tuesday, and the suspect was taken into custody in Georgia. The Broward Sheriff's Office in Florida identified the individual as 22-year-old Robert Allen. He was apprehended on a warrant charging him with first-degree murder and armed robbery. Two other suspects, 22-year-old Dedrick Williams and 20-year-old Michael Boatwright, have already been taken into custody.
XXXTentacion, whose real name was Jahseh Onfroy, was shot in June outside a motorcycle dealership in Deerfield Beach, Florida. He was known for his controversial and often violent lyrics, as well as his legal troubles. The rapper had been awaiting trial on multiple charges, including aggravated battery of a pregnant woman and false imprisonment. Despite his controversies, his music had a significant impact on the hip-hop scene, garnering millions of streams and a dedicated following.
The motive behind XXXTentacion's murder remains unclear, but authorities have suggested it was the result of a robbery gone wrong. Investigators believe that the perpetrators were after a Louis Vuitton bag, which was stolen from the rapper's vehicle. The bag was later recovered by police. However, the investigation is still ongoing, and authorities are seeking additional information from the public.
The arrest of Allen marks a significant step forward in the case, as investigators continue to search for the remaining suspect. Allen allegedly had connections with Williams and Boatwright, both of whom have been charged with first-degree murder. In addition to his involvement in the XXXTentacion case, Allen had previously been wanted on unrelated drug charges.
The murder of XXXTentacion sent shockwaves through the music community, prompting an outpouring of grief and tributes from fans and fellow artists. Many mourned the loss of the 20-year-old rapper, expressing their sadness over the tragic end to such a promising and influential career.
As the investigation progresses, authorities are urging anyone with information on the remaining suspect to come forward. They have released a description of the individual and are offering a reward for any information leading to his arrest. The motive and circumstances surrounding XXXTentacion's killing may become clearer as law enforcement authorities continue to work on the case. For now, the arrest of Robert Allen provides some hope for justice as the search for the final suspect in this high-profile murder intensifies.
