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. The $300 taken from Tyler Macklin before he was shot to death was shown off on stage at a Tampa nightclub one night later, police said.
