Deerfield Beach, FL – More details continue to emerge in the June 18 shooting death of XXXTENTACION. CNN reports the late Broward County, Florida rapper had $50,000 in cash stuffed in a Louis Vuitton bag the day he was killed.
The 20-year-old was at RIVA Motorsports in Deerfield Beach to purchase a new motorcycle when he was shot dead. X had reportedly just withdrawn the money and the cash was still in $100 bundles.
Surveillance video captured X and a friend arriving at RIVA around 3:30 p.m. local time, shortly before a SUV pulled up, according to the affidavit. Two men got out of the vehicle and casually passed by X and his companion who were shopping in the store.
The two men left and parked nearby before returning a few minutes later as X was getting into his BMW. X was shot after a brief struggle. He later died from his wounds at a local hospital.
A grand jury has indicted four men on charges of first degree murder and armed robbery. Michael Boatwright and Dedrick Williams — also known as Tattooman Chucky on Instagram — are in custody, while Robert Allen and Trayvon Newsome remain at large.
According to the affidavit, authorities seized several items from Williams’ home, including a live .22-caliber round that matched casings recovered from the crime scene and clothing items with tags still on them. They also found a receipt for almost $800 of clothes bought at a Fort Lauderdale store the day after the shooting.
Not only that, a video on Williams’ cell phone made shortly after the killing showed him dancing around with $100 bills and the phone’s GPS placed him at RIVA a minute before the shooting incident.
The affidavit also reportedly says Boatwright was in possession of several $100 bills in cell phone photographs taken hours after the killing, and that authorities found a receipt for more than $400 worth of clothing and shoes in a garbage can in a carport at Boatwright’s house on July 1.
Police then uncovered searches on Boatwright’s phone for X by his last name — Onfroy — and for the words, “Accessory to Murder.”
Fans of X had a chance to say goodbye to him at a public, open-casket memorial in Sunrise, Florida last month. He was laid to rest in an elaborate mausoleum three weeks ago.
