XXXTentacion murder suspect Robert Allen arrested in Georgia

It brings the total number of arrests to three

A suspect has been arrested linked to the murder XXXTentacion who was shot dead in Florida last month.

The 20-year-old rapper, whose real name was Jahseh Dwayne Ricardo Onfroy, was fatally shot outside of Riva Motorsports dealership in Deerfield Beach on June 18.

As The Macon Telegraph reports, suspect Robert Allen, 22, of Fort Lauderdale, was arrested on Wednesday (July 25) in rural Georgia.
He was indicted last Thursday (July 19) as an accessory to the crime along with Dedrick Williams, 22, who was arrested in June. Both men are alleged to have blocked the rapper from leaving the motorcycle store’s car park with their SUV.
Michael Boatwright, 22, has also been arrested. Boatwright and a fourth suspect, Trayvon Newsome, 20, have been named by the Broward County Sheriff’s Office as the men they believe pulled the trigger on XXXTentacion.
All four suspects have been charged with first-degree murder and armed robbery charges. Police are offering a reward of $3,000 (£2,300) for information leading to the arrest of Newsome, who remains at large. A hotline has been set up for people to share tips anonymously.
Mr Allen, whose nicknames include “Big Rob” and “Fat Boy”, was spotted on CCTV minutes before XXXTentacion was robbed of $50,000 in cash in a Louis Vuitton bag outside the Florida dealership.


Speaking about how Mr Allen was found by US Marshals Southeast Regional Fugitive Task Force, Deputy US Marshal John Edgar told The Macon Telegraph: “They got some information he was up in Eastman, possibly staying with his sister.”

In other news, a new line of XXXTentacion-themed merchandise is to be released in memory of the late rapper.
The team behind Onfroy’s merchandise said: “There are currently over 1 thousand bootleggers around the world selling clothes with X’s name and likeness.
“We wanted to give fans the ability to own and wear a piece of Jah’s artistry while also supporting his legacy. So today we are releasing the first collection of XXXTentacion Memorial Merch.”
