The Broward County Sheriff’s Office said Boatwright, was one of the two suspects who approached XXXTentacion, whose real name is Jahseh Onfroy, and shot him shortly after XXXTentacion left the Riva Motorsports motorcycle dealership located in Deerfield Beach, Florida.


Police say they are looking to talk with 22-year-old Robert Allen, a "person of interest" in the murder case of XXXTentacion. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Allen is wanted for a felony warrant for violation of probation, drug possession and carrying a concealed firearm.


The first arrest made in connection to the murder of XXXTentacion happened on June 21 when Florida Police pulled over 22-year-old Dedrick Williams and charged him with murder without premeditation, violation of probation and driving without a valid drivers license according to police records.  XXXTentacion’s mother was notified of the arrest during a vigil.

In 2015, Boatwright was arrested again on drug charges and had several other felony violations since.


Celebrity gossip website Bossip posted a video of someone claiming to have killed the 20-year-old rapper, but it’s unclear who the person is because their face is covered. The video shows a man bragging about the murder but it doesn’t appear to be Dedrick Williams, the first suspect arrested.
