Suspect in XXXTentacion’s Murder Extradited to Florida to Face Charges


After being arrested by U.S. Marshals in Eastman, Ga., Robert Allen, who was indicted along with three other men for the murder of XXXTentacion, has been extradited to Florida to face charges for the case.

According to Macon, Ga.-based media outlet 13WMaz, Allen was extradited to Florida yesterday (July 27), which marked the same day he was arrested by Georgia authorities. He was sitting in a cell at Dodge County Jail before being picked up by the Broward Sheriff’s Office. Now, only one suspect in the murder of XXXTentacion remains on the run.

Police named Allen a person of interest in the case this past June, but weren’t able to arrest him until yesterday. At the time of his arrest for charges of first-degree murder with a firearm and armed robbery with a firearm, Allen was at the home of his sister, whom police say was cooperative. He had been wanted for possession of a weapon and a street drug known as flakka.

While Allen isn’t believed to be the shooter, his recent indictment shows that police believe he played a significant role in the murder of X, who was shot and killed during a robbery outside of Deerfield Beach, Fla.’s Riva Motorsports on June 18.

Other suspects include Michael Boatwright (22), Trayvon Newsome (20) and Dedrick Williams (22). Police believe Boatwright and Newsome were the gunmen, and that Boatwright fired the fatal shots. They say Williams was the getaway driver in the incident, which they call premeditated. All but Newsome have now been apprehended by authorities.
