According to The U.S. Sun, 20-year-old Jahseh Onfroy was pronounced dead at a nearby hospital. Only hours before, he had withdrawn $50,000 from a local Bank of America, CNN reported. Surveillance showed that Onfroy’s assailants had reached into his car to take a Louis Vuitton bag full of money when the murder occurred. Ultimately, the gunmen made off with Onfroy’s cash and other personal belongings in a Dodge Journey. Shortly after, the vehicle was involved in a hit-and-run accident. It was then discovered that the car had been rented, and it led them to a name: Dedrick Williams. Less than two months after Onfroy’s murder, police had four suspects in custody, including Williams, Michael Boatwright, Robert Allen, and Trayvon Newsome (via the Sun-Sentinel).
investigators later found cell phone video and photos of the suspects dancing with cash. Moreover, Williams was captured on video entering the motorcycle store at the same time Onfroy had to purchase a black mask. A .22-caliber round that matched casings found at the crime scene and hundreds of dollars worth of new clothes were also found in Williams’ home. All four suspects were charged with first-degree murder and armed robbery. As of 2021, a trial date has not been set. E! Online reports that even in death, Onfroy has continued to sell millions of records. Seven months after his murder, his girlfriend gave birth to his only child, Gekyume Onfroy (per the BBC).
