Rapper Xxxtentacion, whose real name was Jahseh Dwayne Ricardo Onfroy, was shot in 2018 outside a South Florida motorcycle shop. Alleged picture of his body after his autopsy was leaked on Twitter and Reddit. When the picture was reportedly shown to the judge during the broadcasted murder trial, social media users took screenshots of it. They termed it an “autopsy” picture. However, Opoyi cannot verify the same.
The incident is similar to rapper King Von’s case. His autopsy report and a picture were also reportedly leaked on social media. According to the leaked report, a gunshot wound to the torso of the rapper was the cause of his death. Another victim, Mark Blakley, also died during the shooting.
Meanwhile, during the Xxxtentacion murder trial, a fan named Scott Barbieux was questioned. He reportedly took a photo of the late rapper after he was shot.
Barbieux told the court that he and his ex-girlfriend were shopping at RIVA Motorsports in Deerfield Beach, Florida, when he saw the rapper being robbed and murdered. He further testified that he took a picture and posted it on Snapchat. He said that he took the picture because he was a big fan.
However, not long after the photo was taken, the investigators at the scene immediately took away his mobile phone. “Do you remember Mr. Onfroy sitting in the car and taking a picture of him on his phone after he was shot?” the prosecutor asked Barbieux.
“Because I’m such a big fan of his, I wanted a picture to remind me forever,” Barbieux said.
The fan also admitted that he brushed shoulders with the rapper prior to the shooting and asked for a picture.
“Hey X asked me to take a picture – but he just ignored me and got in his car,” Barbieux testified. “He was in a bad mood. You could tell by the way he walked out the door,” he added.
