XXXTentacion Death Investigation: Detectives Getting Leads from Social Media

Broward County detectives are getting all the help they need from fans of XXXTentacion who jumped into action to track down the shooters minutes after the 20-year-old rapper was gunned down.

Law enforcement sources tell The Blast investigators are combing through a “ton of social media posts” sent in by citizens who believe they have legitimate leads on the suspects in the XXX murder.

One major lead being scrutinized is a Facebook post by a rapper from Georgia who posted at 12:56 PM on Sunday that “xxxTentacion gone get shot tomorrow.”

Another post shows a separate crew posing in front of what appears to be a gas station shortly after XXXTentacion died. The three men appear to be standing in front of a black SUV, similar to the one described as the suspect’s vehicle.

One of the same men in the gas station picture appears in another photo with a red mask, and social media detectives quickly connected that to the witnesses description of the shooter wearing a red mask underneath a purple hoodie.

However, after that photo went public and the men were identified by fans online, one of the guys posted a video denying his involvement in XXX’s death.  It’s unclear if he’s been contacted by police yet.

As we reported, investigators are now offering a $3,000 reward for information leading to an arrest, and are continuing to follow up on all potential leads.
