The man currently being held as a suspect in the murder of XXXTentacion made appeared to make a coded reference to the shooting shortly after the rapper had been gunned down.
Dedrick Williams went on Facebook Wednesday morning and posted a photo of himself showing off a fistful of jewelry and proclaiming, “Don’t piss me off u will never know wats next ????”
The ambiguous line may have not have seemed important then, but hours later the 22-year-old was arrested on a first-degree murder charge for allegedly shooting the hip-hop star dead. Williams’ veiled threat on Facebook could be interpreted as boasting about the shooting, if in fact he is guilty of being involved or even pulling the trigger.
Williams has a long rap sheet, which includes an arrest last November for possession of a firearm and possession of cocaine after cops found a loaded Glock on his couch and drugs in his apartment.
It’s unclear if Williams targeted X or was merely trying to rob him of cash after the rapper stopped by a motorsports store with an intent to make a purchase on a bike. The suspect’s social media accounts are littered with videos showing off wads of cash and also his work as a tattoo artist.
Broward County officials tell us the investigation into the death of XXXTentacion is still active.
