The attorney for Dedrick Williams, one of the suspects accused of killing XXXTENTACION, believes the footage will prove his client’s innocence.

The latest development in the case surrounds Kodak Black, who apparently interacted with X’s alleged killers during his incarceration. Vlad TV reports the attorney for Dedrick Williams, Mauricio Padilla, filed to subpoena records and video from Broward County jail that reveal his client and Kodak Black interacted with one another behind bars.
Padilla described the footage as “vital” to proving Williams’ innocence. The specific footage Padilla is seeking is from July 15th and 16th, 2022 between the times of 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. in cells 5 and 7 unit 6A, where Yak and Williams were held. Padilla also wants any documentation of “keep separate orders” preventing his client from being held with other inmates.
Kodak Black and Williams were held at Broward County jail at the same time following Yak’s arrest for prescription pills. Kodak Black bailed out a short time after.
It’s unclear how Padilla will use this information to prove his client’s innocence but the documents could be turned over as soon as the judge approves the motion.
Williams is one of three defendants — Michael Boatwright and Trayvon Newsome — awaiting trial in XXXTENTACION’s murder case. A fourth defendant, Robert Allen, copped a plea deal and will testify against the other three.
