Is American Rapper XXXTentacion Still Alive?
American rapper Jahseh Dwayne Ricardo Onfroy, better known by his stage name XXXTentacion, was shot and killed on the afternoon of June 18, 2018, right outside of RIVA Motorsports in Deerfield Beach, Florida. RIVA Motorsports is an upscale retailer of bikes and watercraft.
After receiving numerous gunshot wounds to the neck, he was listed in critical condition until 5:30 p.m., when he was finally pronounced dead.
Four males have been arrested and charged with first-degree murder and robbery with a handgun, according to the authorities. Should they be found guilty, they face either the prospect of a sentence of life in prison without the chance of parole or the death penalty.
In exchange for testimony against the other three defendants, Robert Allen reached a plea deal with the prosecution on the 12th of August, 2022. Allen avoided the possibility of receiving the death penalty by entering a guilty plea to the lesser charge of murder in the second degree.
The date for his sentencing has been set for February 24, 2023, and he might receive a sentence of up to life in jail for his crime. On January 9, 2023, the preliminary hearing for the first trial of one of the accused, Dedrick Williams, is slated to begin.
Why Fans Think That He Faked His Death?
The music video for the song “SAD!” was filmed before the artist passed away, however it was only released after his death. The rapper is seen attending his own burial. Though his death has been confirmed by officials, some of the rapper’s admirers on social media insist he is still alive and that he staged his own death.
A popular tweet describes a previous publicity stunt in which XXXTentacion faked his own suicide before confessing that it was all for a music video.
A Twitter user named @vasinvain speculates that XXXTentacion faked his own death because of “the amount of conspiracy in his life along with the overwhelming fame” or to promote a new track maybe titled “No Pulse”.
Where Did the Police Spot Him?
An Instagram image that purports to show a living version of the late rapper Xxxtentacion has been making the rounds recently. The post features a picture of the rapper in his current state. The date that this image was published is April 15th, 2019.
According to the post, he was discovered alive as authorities were looking for another child who had gone missing. It would appear that while searching for him, the police came across a house in the middle of the woods, which is where they ended up finding him. According to the same article, he has been arrested and will be required to serve a prison sentence of one year and one month.
Who Was Responsible for the Murder?
Before visiting RIVA Motorsports, in Deerfield Beach, Florida, Onfroy withdrew cash from a Bank of America on June 18, 2018. After getting cash, he was allegedly pursued by Dedrick Williams, Robert Allen, Michael Boatwright, and Trayvon Newsome in a dark-colored Dodge Journey SUV.
The investigation has concluded that the murder was premeditated. Authorities found that Williams and Onfroy both visited the same probation office in January of 2018, and that Williams may have recognised Onfroy’s automobile on the day of the murder. Williams allegedly saw Onfroy’s automobile and phoned the other suspects, telling them they should check inside the dealership where Onfroy had entered to make sure it was really him.
Onfroy and his uncle went to RIVA Motorsports around 3:30 p.m. The suspects, identified as Robert Allen and Dedrick Williams, were seen on surveillance tape following Onfroy inside the store, where they went straight by him as he was perusing the motorcycles.
They entered RIVA and purchased two black masks, which were later returned. An hour and a half later, Onfroy walked out of the dealership and into his black BMW i8. Onfroy claims that Newsome and Boatwright exited the SUV and made a demand for property before returning to their vehicle and driving in front of him to block him in.
After a brief altercation, Newsome allegedly stole Onfroy’s Louis Vuitton purse, while Boatwright took Onfroy’s chain. Onfroy’s uncle got out of the car and ran when the fighting started. Newsome retreated to the car the criminals had left behind.
Allegedly, when the robbery was over, Boatwright walked back within a couple of feet of Onfroy’s car, retrieved his weapon, stared Onfroy in the eyes, and fired six shots, killing him. According to eyewitnesses, after stealing the Louis Vuitton bag from Onfroy’s car, Newsome and Boatwright quickly made their way to the waiting black Dodge.
Onfroy was living in Parkland, Florida, which is east of the area where the massacre took place. The firefighters from Broward County hurried him to Broward Health North. A pulse was briefly restored by paramedics, but it was lost permanently. Following the incident, it was claimed that Onfroy was in serious condition; however, the Broward County Sheriff’s Office later verified that Onfroy had passed away.
