UPDATE (Jul. 2, 2018): XXXTentacion Murder Suspect Dedrick Williams Was NOT Raped & Assaulted in Jail
Life comes at you fast! The word on the street is that the man who was arrested for his alleged involvement in XXXTentacion’s murder was attacked in prison, and it doesn’t sound too good.
According to reports floating around the internet, Dedrick Williams—one of three men who robbed and shot XXXTentacion to death—was raped in Broward County Jail, and the word is that incarcerated Florida rapper Kodak Black had something to do with it.
The website Hip-Hop Overload quotes a reliable source who works in the Dade County Jail system. According to them, the alleged rape and assault happened Wednesday, the same day a public memorial was held for XXXTentacion at the BB&T Center in Sunrise, FL.
Word we got from our informant is that he was told Dedrick was getting a shower when he was ambushed with an attempted rape, which in jail is the ultimate sign of disrespect. We are told that Kodak Black people may have had something to do with it. This makes total sense because XXXTentacion and Kodak Black are extremely tight friends like brothers.
One has to think if the assault was calculated to happen the day of XXXTentacion’s memorial which was held at the BB&T Center in Broward County today [Wed, Jun. 28]. We are currently trying to get pictures of the assault once we do we will be sure to share them all. As you see we are told Dedrick was beaten down pretty bad.
HHO also provided screenshots from a text message exchange with their informant. “They got him today! XXXTentacion’s killer, [they] got him in [the] shower! Got him pretty bad. Rape and all,” reads the thread. “Word I got is [Kodak Black’s] people [did it]. Had to move Dedrick to PC [Protective Custody]. It was bad.”
What’s surprising is that Williams, 22, wasn’t already in protective custody, considering how high profile his case is. There are no credible reports to back HHO’s story up, but, then again, the mainstream media doesn’t usually report on prison violence anyway, especially rape.
Police are still looking for the other two men responsible for XXXTentacion’s shooting death.
