Third Suspect Arrested in Connection With XXXTentacion's Murder


A third suspect was arrested Wednesday morning for his alleged role in the June murder XXXTentacion. U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force discovered Robert Allen hiding out at his sister's home in rural Eastman, Georgia, where he was arrested, reports the Associated Press

Allen was named a "person interest" by the Broward Sheriff's Office earlier in July as detectives wanted to question the 22-year-old regarding what he knew about X's death. The Fort Lauderdale, Florida, resident is currently being held without bond in the Dodge County Jail, according to United States Marshal John Edgar.

Just last week, a grand jury indicted Allen and three others for first-degree murder and armed robbery charges. Robert will be extradited to Broward County, Florida, within the next 10 days to face the charges alongside Dedrick Williams and Michael Boatright. The final suspect, 20-year-old Trayvon Newsome, remains at large. 

XXXTentacion, 20, was fatally shot during an armed robbery in Deerfield Beach, Florida, on June 18. ​
