Ariana Onfroy, the half-sister of the late rapper XXXTentacion, said in an interview published Monday that she believes his murder was the result of an inside job.
In her first interview since the hip hop star was tragically gunned down in Deerfield Beach, Florida in June, Ariana Onfroy, 22, told Sun Online his death was most definitely an “inside job” which she believes was carried out for financial gain.
“It was definitely an inside job because who knew?” Onfroy told the Sun, a British tabloid. “Somebody that was close to him knew where he was going to be at the exact time and in that exact place. He didn’t make any big announcement that ‘I’m going to be here to get a bike’ or something like that.”
Onfroy added that she’s convinced the murder, which took place June 18 at a motorcycle shop in Deerfield Beach, was “definitely set up” because those who have been charged in connection with his death so far knew the “exact time” to be on the scene.
A Florida grand jury has indicted four men on first-degree murder and armed robbed charges for X’s murder. All four men have since been taken into custody. “I want justice to be done,” Onfroy said Monday. “I want the person that made that call or text or spoke to someone or whatever chain of command they went through to get these people to kill him to be brought to justice.”
Michael Boatwright, one of the four indicted suspects, has since claimed that prosecutors are withholding information that would be of assistance in his case including arrest warrant affidavits and police reports.
