XXXTentacion Murder Suspect Dedrick Williams Pleads To Be Released From Jail Due To COVID-19, Says He Has A Weak Immune System
Dedrick Williams, one of four suspects in the murder of rapper XXXTentacion, has written a letter pleading to be released from jail on bond and house arrest.
According to reports, in the letter he said that he “felt unsafe in Broward’s Main Jail due to his weak immune system” and referred to an alleged situation where another inmate in the jail allegedly contracted the virus from a deputy.
Dedrick Williams pled not guilty to XXXTentacion‘s 2018 murder and says that because he has behaved well while incarcerated, he should be released. He told the judge,
“Since the age of 17, I’ve had you [Broward Circuit Judge Michael Usan] as a judge. I am now 24. Never have I missed court or failed a drug test.”
XXXTentacion was murdered outside of a South Florida motorcycle dealership where he reportedly was looking to purchase motorcycles. Other suspects–Michael Boatwright, Robert Allen, and Trayvon Newsome–were arrested and charged in connection with the murder. All four were indicted in July 2018 on armed robbery and first-degree murder charges.
Survivors of the slain rapper include his mother, Cleo, and his former girlfriend, Jenesis Sanchez, who gave birth to their son, Gekyume Onfroy, last year.
