XXXTentacion Was Reportedly Expecting a Baby With Girlfriend Before His Death

Before his death, XXXTentacion reportedly learned he was going to be a father. The Florida rapper, born Jahseh Dwayne Onfroy, was shot and killed as he was leaving a motorsport auto dealership on Monday.

Onfroy's mother, Cleopatra Bernard, shared her late son's baby news in an Instagram post of an ultrasound on Thursday. "He left us a final gift," she captioned the photo.

The baby would have been Onfroy's first child. The expectant mother and unidentified girlfriend was reportedly eight weeks along at the time of the sonogram photo, dated April 23. Onfroy, 20, knew he had a baby on the way at the time of his death, according to TMZ.

A 22-year-old Florida man named Dedrick Williams was arrested by Broward County officers on Wednesday in connection to Onfroy's murder. Williams was charged with first-degree murder without premeditation, violation of probation and driving without a valid license. He was already serving a five-year probation for previous charges of grand theft auto.

At a vigil for Onfroy on Wednesday night, Bernard appeared to have been notified of Williams's arrest. "They arrested him. That means they got him," she can be heard saying in a Snapchat video.

Williams appeared before a judge on Thursday with a public defender but did not address the court. A judge ordered him to be detained without bond.

Although initial reports on Onfroy's death said the "Sad!" rappers murder appeared to be a part of an unplanned robbery involving at least two suspects (one wearing a red mask and the other allegedly wearing a black mask), authorities declined to comment on the suspected motive behind Onfroy's killing. A bag was stolen from Onfroy's BMW at the time of his death.

"Homicide detectives are seeking additional suspects," the sheriff's office said Thursday. "The investigation continues. Updates will be provided as they become available."
