Dedrick D. Williams claims he had nothing to do with XXXTENTACION's murder.
Police have been working hard of cracking down on XXXTENTACION's murder suspect. Last week, a judge issued three arrest warrants for suspects in X's death. Shortly after, they arrested Dedrick D. Williams on a first-degree murder charge. He was charged with first-degree murder and held without bail. Today, he returned to court where he pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder.
Dedrick D. Williams went back to court today for another hearing where he pleaded not guilty to the first-degree murder charge in connection to XXXTENTACION's death, ABC Local 10 reports. He appeared in a Fort Lauderdale, FL court yesterday and maintained his innocence.
"I plead him not guilty and my client maintains his innocence," his lawyer, Mauricio Padilla said. "It's difficult when you're dealing with media cases because as you know they take a life of their own nowadays with social media. But we're really focused on trying this case in a court of law and not in the court of public opinion."
Detective John Curcio believes Williams was wearing a distinctive pair of bright orange sandals and purchased a red mask. He also appeared in court today for a hearing on a probation violation charge stemming from a car theft case.
Police are still looking for two more suspects in XXXTENTACION's murder case. Earlier today, it was reported that two of the suspects are on the run and US Marshals are currently on the hunt to track them down. In addition, cops investigating X's murder named a second person of interest.
