An XXXTentacion murder suspect did not suffer a sexual assault last week in jail. New reports claim the Florida resident didn’t get raped.
According to reports, the Broward County Sheriff’s Office has addressed the growing speculation centered on inmate Dedrick D. Williams.
Law enforcement officials at BSO tell us the story asserting Dedrick Williams was raped in Broward County Jail is flat-out false. The story — citing someone who works in the Dade County Jail system — claimed Williams had been showering recently and was ambushed “with an attempted rape.” The report went on to claim that people affiliated with Kodak Black may have been involved.

A few days ago, a report emerged about the murder suspect having his manhood stripped from him behind bars.
According to Hip-Hop Overload, an employee at the jail claims Williams was physically and sexually assaulted in a shower. The source also says that friends of Kodak Black are responsible. “Word we got from our informant is that he was told Dedrick was getting a shower when he was ambushed with an attempted rape, which in jail is the ultimate sign of disrespect,” the site reports. “We are told that Kodak Black people may have had something to do with it.” (BET)
