Fans noticed a suspicious moment when the judge read the verdict. As the jury declared one of XXXTENTACION killers, Michael Boatwright, guilty, he appeared to blow a kiss at the camera before a grin appeared on his face. The Miami Herald reports he directed the gesture toward XXXTENTACION’s family who attended court in anticipation of a guilty verdict. The evident lack of remorse will likely play a role in his sentencing next month. Still, X’s mother stated that “Justice was done,” as she left the courtroom on Monday.

Police previously established Michael Boatwright as one of two gunmen, alongside Trayvon Newsome, who fatally shot XXXTENTACION. Police said Dedrick Williams served as the getaway driver during the botched robbery. Throughout the trial, the defense attorneys attempted to debunk each piece of evidence presented to the court. When the photos of the suspects flashing cash came up, Boatwright’s lawyer Joseph Kimok confirmed that they held up the money but denied his client pulled the trigger.
