Video: 3 Florida Rappers Robbed and Killed Man for $300 So They Could Flash At A Concert Performance!
WINTER HAVEN – Two men who robbed and murdered a man after breaking into his home did it for a rap show, according to the Polk County Sheriff’s Office.
Joseph Edward Gomes-Brandon, Jr.,18, and 21-year-old Jonathan Olin Felix are accused of killing 21-year-old Tyler Macklin at his home in Winter Haven May 11.
Investigators said the men needed a large amount of currency to “flash cash” while they performed rap songs at a show in Tampa. They didn’t have enough of their own money to “demonstrate their desired level of affluence,” so they decided to steal it, said the sheriff’s office
According to investigators, the idea to target Macklin came from another man, Dylan Kindred, 20.
Deputies said he drove the car to and from Macklin’s home, while Felix and Gomes-Brandon, also known as “Killa” and “Waxx,” carried out the robbery and murder inside.
Investigators said Kindred told them he suggested they rob Macklin because he would be an easy target, but said they were only “supposed to steal cash and drugs” from Macklin, and not hurt him.
An arrest affidavit said, after arriving at Macklin’s home on May 11, Kindred watched as Felix and Gomes-Brandon kicked in the front door.
A short time after seeing them go inside, he heard a gunshot, “then saw the suspects running from the front of the residence”.
When they got back into the car, they had Macklin’s wallet, $300 in cash, and a second firearm that belonged to Macklin.
