Investigators say Michael Boatwright, 22, is one of the two armed suspects who confronted Jahseh Onfroy, aka XXXTentacion, when he was killed in broad daylight on June 18. Boatwright was arrested on July 5 on unrelated drug charges. On July 10, detectives served Boatwright with an arrest warrant for first-degree murder while at the BSO Main Jail. He now faces an additional charge of first degree murder.
Even though the arrest is a big victory for the many people who want to see justice served, detectives are still looking for two other men.
Detectives are still seeking the second gunman as well as Robert Allen, a 22-year-old man described as a person of interest in the case. Investigators want to find out what he knows about the murder. Allen is also wanted in Broward County on a felony warrant for violation of probation for possession of PVP (flakka) and carrying a concealed firearm.
