- Rapper Xxxtentacion, whose real name was Jahseh Dwayne Ricardo Onfroy, was gunned down outside a South Florida motorcycle shop in 2018
- His alleged autopsy photos have been leaked on Twitter and Reddit
- In a similar incident, King Von’s autopsy report was also leaked on social media
The aftermath of his death was further marred by the leak of an alleged photo of his post-autopsy body on social media sites such as Twitter and Reddit.
While Opoyi cannot verify the photo’s authenticity, it reportedly made its way to the murder trial judge and was dubbed an “autopsy” photo by social media users.
Unfortunately, this case is not unique, as rapper King Von also had his autopsy report after his death and a photo leaked on social media.
The report found the cause of death to be a gunshot wound to his torso. Another victim, Mark Blakley, was also killed in the shooting.
During the Xxxtentacion murder trial, a fan named Scott Barbieux was called to testify. He claimed he witnessed the rapper being robbed and killed while shopping with his ex-girlfriend at RIVA Motorsports in Deerfield Beach, Florida.
Barbieux admitted to taking a photo of the rapper after he was shot and posted it on Snapchat. He said he did that because he was a huge fan of the rapper.
However, investigators on the scene quickly confiscated Barbieux’s phone and he was unable to recover the photo he had taken.
During his testimony, the prosecution asked him if he remembered seeing Xxxtentacion take a picture of himself on his phone after he was shot. Barbieux responded by saying he took the photo because he wanted to have a memory of the rapper forever.
The fan also shared that he brushed up with the rapper prior to filming and asked for a photo, but that Xxxtentacion ignored him and got in his car.
Barbieux noticed the rapper was in a bad mood and saw it in the way he walked out the door.
It is heartbreaking that the tragic deaths of these young rappers have gained even more sensation with the leaking of autopsy reports and photos on social media.
It is important to remember that these individuals were people with families and loved ones who were still grieving their loss. Leaking such sensitive and private information only adds to their pain and suffering.
We must always remember to show empathy and respect for the privacy of those who have passed away.
Leaks of sensitive information and images should never be condoned or accepted, and we must strive to ensure that such events never happen again.
May Xxxtentacion, King Von and Mark Blakley rest in peace, and may their families find comfort and healing in the memories of their loved ones.
